#75 done!

75. Spend a weekend in Portland.

Portland sort of fell into my lap! My Aunt and Uncle and two cousins were coming for a wedding from Florida. My Grandparents were coming to spend a weekend with them from Grants Pass, OR. So my Dad, Peyton and I decided to join them for the weekend as well!

We saw some sights, spent time with family, ate Saint Cupcakes, did some shopping, and went to the Oregon Zoo. All in all a fun filled weekend.

Also, I finished reading Live, Laugh, Love - one of my books for # 92. I adored this book. It makes me want to learn to meditate. :) I highly suggest reading it if you haven't already.

Now I am starting the Hunger Games.

#66 Done!!!

66. Cancel unnecessary monthly bills.

The last two days I cancelled the three bills coming out monthly that are pointless. One I don't even know what it was and it took some research to figure it out. Once I figured it out I even convinced them to refund me the last payment they took out, considering it was a scam! Nothing I even signed up for.
I also cancelled Neopets Premium. Yeah. Neopets. I haven't played that in years. I was always to "old" to play it. I'm a dork. :)

Finally, I went and cancelled my gym membership. Again, I haven't used the gym in years. I don't have the time. I'd rather do stuff at home and in the free gym at my work. 

$55 saved per month!! 

I am also setting aside $20 from my paycheck on Monday (working on #63 -  Save $20 for each item I complete on this list.)

It feels so good to FINALLY cross something off of this list! Yay!

I haven't forgotten...

I feel weird that I have yet to cross off ONE item from my list. I have several in the works though. I have completed 24 days of my Project 365 blog as of today. I also just finished day 2 of the 30 Day Shred. I'm also about half way thru reading Eat, Pray, Love (from the best books of the decade list I found) and am well on my way to my goal weight.

I hope to make something from scratch this weekend (my list has cookies, cake, and pancakes). Peyton really likes cooking with me so this should be a fun weekend activity.

A lot of my list items cost money. I'm currently trying to save up money for our trip to Vegas (one month from today!) so those will have to hold off for now. But soon!

Well on my way....

to my goal weight. I am currently 148. I started at 172. I lost 10 then sat at 162 for quite awhile until I started WW recently. It's a slow loss, but it's going away. My GW is 130.

Here I was (in Port Angeles WA on the way back from Forks!)

And here I am now (on the right. The left is my beautiful cousin!)

It's not the easiest thing I've done. It takes work, but looking at these two pictures makes me realize how worth it is is! <3 I cannot wait to cross this one off of my list!

Date Night #1

I had our first date night that can count to the 33 total I want to have over the course of the next 1001 days. (More than 33 would be great, but thats a minimum!)

The reason this is on my list is because while I know my husband and I have a wonderful relationship, I feel we have lost a bit of "us" because our focus is on Peyton and not each other. It's nice to have nights and refocus on us.

We went out with our friends Jody and Travis and had dinner and drinks at The Trainwreck. Great food, one too many shots, and great friends. Date night number one was a total success!

I also have 14 days down in Project 365 and my Wreck This Journal finally came in the mail yesterday. :)

#1.. almost!

I completed a 10k this morning. It felt amazing. My time was not the best. I had to walk some (hence why I don't get to cross it off.. yet!)

That was such a huge feat for me. I was so nervous about it. After the first 2 miles I thought there was absolutely no way I could possibly go another 4.2 miles. But I did. I am so very proud of myself. This is the first of many 10ks (5k's, half marathons.. marathons???) to come hopefully!

Maybe with the next 10k I will be able to mark this off. I'm off to go find the next one to register for right now!

Getting Started

I have yet to check an item off! I feel like a slacker. But I do have 999 more days.

I did get some things started today.

Here is my Project 365. My official start date on that is also Sept 15th, but I didn't get the posts up until today. I figure as long as I post for every day (whether it's that day or not) I'll still count it. I will try to not get more than 3 days behind. What matters most is that I am using my camera daily.

I also ordered my Wreck This Journal from Amazon. I can't wait for it to get here and dig into it. It looks like a lot of fun and maybe even a good stress reliever.

I'm hoping over the weekend to do an organization project so that I can have that awesome feeling of crossing off one of my tasks.

Tomorrow is the Day!

I am a Mom. A wife. A daughter. A friend. An employee. 

Somewhere along the line I've started to loose site of who I am beyond than those things. I need to do something to focus on improving and caring for myself. A friend of mine told me about this and it sounded fantastic. She sparked the interest in a few of us and we can hopefully all complete this journey together.

My list contains things I've been meaning to do and have put off. Things I hope to accomplish. Things I am scared to do. Things that will make me push myself. Things that I will have fun doing. 

Every one of these things will improve my life.

Tomorrow is the day I have chosen to start this 1001 days. I am anxious and excited and even a tad bit nervous. 

Here goes nothing!
