Laziness or Not Prepared?

It’s probably both laziness and not being prepared for an outcome for a recent event that has kept me from blogging here.  The goals I have listed at 43things.com weren’t meant to be resolutions, but more like a “bucket list”.

I was sick for a few days and was preoccupied with shoveling snow seemingly nonstop from last Tuesday through last Friday.  There was a 21 hour period when I had no electricity.

Most of the goals I have set for myself have been put on hold until i get myself better situated.

Back to the Drawing Board

I had set some goals for me at the beginning of the year.   Here is my “bucket list”:

Some of my goals are vague.  “Be happy.” is an example.  it’s a matter of keeping on the right frame of mind.

Others are goals that I will start in March, once I am in my new place.

The rest are those I started on January 1

Smoking – I went the first three days without a cigarette, broke down and bought a pack, went another couple days without a cigarette, and have been smoking since.

Watching my weight  – I started well, but I have have faultered in the last week.  I am back where I started 2010 at 228 lbs.

Walk a mile every day – Today was the first time I haven’t walked in a while.  It was like a tropical storm.  Winds were clocked at 47 MPH and over 2 inches of rain had fallen by 1PM.

Blogging every day:  Between this blog and my other blog, I have been good.  I blog on at least one of the blogs and usually both.

I have accomplished some, but not everything I wanted to accomplish by now.  I will get myself on track and improve what I need to improve.

It Just Isn’t There

Here it is.  I couldn’t think of anything I found interesting.  Just a quick notes about my progress with my list of things I want to do for 2010 and beyond.

Walking a mile every day – I have been lax.  I’ve only done the full mile once in the last three days.

Quitting Smoking –  I had a puff from a cigarette today.

Losing Weight – I lost 6 pounds since the start of the year.  Food hasn’t been too much of a problem.

My “Bucket List”

There is a website called 43things.com where you make a list of things you want to accomplish in life.  The reason why I am mentioning the website is because it is the inspiration for this blog,  Numbers 4 and 10 on my list.

I am not new to blogging.  I have been writing a fictional blog for the last two years about an independent candidate who is running for President of the United States.  Ahmnodt Heare sees things a bit differently than most people.  He wants to pull troops out of the Middle East so we can invade Canada for what they have done to the American Entertainment Industry.

I will add an “about” page soon so you can learn more about me and how my view on things came to be.
