1. FINAL Draft of dissertation By December- TBD
My proposal defense is set for August 2nd! Hopefully I can stay on track and have a final draft done by December,
2. Watch one classic movie a month- C+
I started off well with this but since watching ET in April, I have not watched another classic movie. I knew this would be hard to do with summer courses but I can try and get on track for the rest of the year. used to be in love with TCM and classic movies and have gone through many of the AFI top 100 lists. I watched 3 movies over my break-On the Town, How to Marry a Millionaire and High Society and loved them. I want to make it a goal to watch one classic movie (1980s and before. Preferably from 1960s but there are stand outs (Godfather, etc))
3. Develop a home routine B-
I developed a routine and was sticking with it and then I traveled too much and it was a disaster that ended with a very messy bathroom for me. I still have the list of chores I came up with so I am going to jump back into them today. It is only 10 minutes or so (straighten up the kitchen, put away dishes, prep food, and then cleaning one room) so I need to get with it! I have been so lazy when I have gotten home from work but need to get back on track.
4. Read one book a month A-
I have stuck with this goal! I technically counted a textbook for class as my June book (I mean it was on Creativity so it counts) but I need to get back into it this month. I have started about 4 books, I just need to pick one to keep working through.
1. Race times: sub 5 for full, sub 2:05 For half, sub 58 for 10k, sub 27 for 5k - D
sub 5: DONE -2016 LA Marathon (new PR-4:56:48)
with my knee injury, many of these other goals will have to wait until the Fall. I am hoping for the best going forward but with the hot weather again, I am focusing on the number of miles and not so much the time.
2. Lose 5-10% of my body fat and keep it off--D
Yeah not happening haha. I was so focused on the Marathon and Dark Side that I stuck in the traveling routine and just got lazy. This is going up and not done which is so frustrating!! and in a knee injury where I couldn't run for 2 weeks, couldn't do lunges/squats or even get down on the ground, it makes it super hard to stay in shape. I am hoping as my knee heals, this will get better!
3. Rock Slave Leia outfit A
I feel like I did this-minus the crazy marks and sweat I dealt with. I felt confident in it and got positive comments from both men and women, which was great! would I do it again? i am unsure because the costume got SO heavy from the sweat and the marks I had on my chest and arms were not fun.
4. Weight train 3x a week B-
I was doing great as I said, until my knee injury. I don't want to be too hard on myself as that was definitely an unplanned incident but it still has not been good over the last few weeks. I am going to try and do weights now with my knee better.
1. Join at least one blog share. C
I have joined a few facebook groups which has been good for me and I have kept up with some linkups. I would like to work on this more as the year progresses
2. Gain at least one ambassadorship C
I have not done this yet. Definitely need to get working on this!
3. Interact with social media B-
I have been commenting on instagram and facebook more but I decided I am not a big twitter fan. It is hard for me to follow and I am okay with that.
How about you? What are your goals for 2016?
