I can't believe this is only my third update. Not only have I been slacking on my list, I've been slacking on keeping you updated. I'll try to do better.
1. Read 30 books. (7/30)
I read two more books bringing my total to seven.
The Help, Kathryn Stockett - 4 out of 5 stars
Switched, Amanda Hocking - 4 out of 5 stars
If you'd like to keep up with what I'm reading, you can follow me on Goodreads.
2. See 8 movies in the theater. (2/8)
On Friday night, The Hero and I talked my mom into babysitting so we could go to the movies. I picked Scream 4. I don't particularly care for gory movies, but I can handle suspense. Besides, these movies are over-the-top cheesy. If you've seen one Scream, you've seen them all. It's the same story again and again with new people to kill. I laughed. I covered my eyes. I yelled at the actresses on tv. "Why are you running up the stairs, you dumb bitch?" It wasn't spectacular, but it was exactly what I expected.
I also really really really want Courteney Cox and David Arquette to get back together. He's her lobster.
5. Go to the gym at least 3 days a week.
I guess it's as good a time as any to let you know this hasn't been happening. Like, not at all... #fail
6. Keep an exercise log.
I've been a lazy bum for weeks and weeks. I had a moment over the weekend when I realized I needed to get off my ass. Today marks Day 1 of the 30-Day Shred. I plan on keeping a log which will include what I eat and the exercises I complete. Wish me luck!
7. Be bikini ready by
May 1June 1.
I've pushed this back because May 1 isn't feasible. I don't need to lose weight, but I do need to trim and tone. If I watch what I eat and exercise, this can and will happen. If it doesn't, I'll just change it to July. (Duh.)
19. Watch 20 movies from my Netflix queue. 2/20
I have been slacking on my at-home movie watching because I have so many tv shows to watch. This should pick up when my shows are on summer hiatus. So far, I've only watched two. I give both of these two thumbs up.
43. Take more pictures.
I'm definitely winning at this one. I've taken a ton of pictures with my camera and iPhone.
45. Tear out everything in my flower beds and plant new stuff in the spring.
I wanted to do this. I asked my husband to help me. I asked his fellow firefighter and buddy to help me. No one helped me. The ugly bushes and shrubs are still there. I guess we could still pull them up, but it would have been easier in the winter when they were mostly dead. #fail
How are you coming along on your 2011 goals
