June
1. Bills to be paid: credit card (300) and tuition deposit (200).
2. Household stuff: finish hanging up/putting away my clothes; find something for me to live in in the yard (either a yurt or a trailer); go through furniture, etc, and decide what to keep and what to sell.
3. Read 3 of my library books.
4. Get Katz Meow off the ground. (Restaurant opening on Canada Day. I'm inventory manager/barista. OMG can we even DO this?)
5. Finish losing 20 pounds: goal 292.

July
1. Debts to be paid: 240 to my ex before the 15th; 200 to my credit card; 100 to my dad.  .66
2. Lose 20 pounds: goal 280.
3. Learning: finish my TEFL course; read 6 books from library and renew as needed. .50
4. Home life: unpack some stuff and get it integrated into my 'house'/mom's house; continue to cull things out of my life; don't strangle cat. - All of this is impossible to do when I'm not at home, so it's getting put off till August.
5. Projects: make major headway on the knit baby blanket; paint the kitchen; build shed in the yard (this means getting someone big and burly (whatever gender) to come and get rid of the spiders currently nesting in the box).  .33

August
1. Learning and home life: finish TEFL course; build sheds for stuff; get patio finished before birthday; get ready to move -- ie, unpack stuff from garage, go through, decide what's coming to Nanaimo. --Working on all of this except building sheds; that's being put off till this fall.
2. Personal joy: send off registration and money for Pirates and Fairies; plan for new tattoo. 
3. Buy myself a netbook. -- HA HA HA.
4. Projects: finish baby blanket; start knitting hat; finish crochet scrabble tile bag. --FAIL. Not happening before I move, and certainly not after.
5. Buy books for school ahead of time, online and cheap. --Saved almost 140 dollars. 1.0

September
1. School: get off on the right foot this semester; don't become bogged down with social life; don't audition for [m]any plays.
2. Religion/spirituality: make a commitment to attend all the public temple rituals; become more active in coven; continue to be more involved in my religious life even though school has started.
3. Get mom a puppy. (Though I'm putting this in September it may happen in August; not a super-strict timeline on this.) 1.0
4. Look into joining/starting a club other than Satyr players, Immersion, or Anthropology.
5. Just stay healthy.

General/anytime goals

1. Get a WoW character up to lvl 70 and get WotLK. (Silly, I know, but it's something I can do and I want to see WotLK content before Cataclysm comes out.) --funny thing about spending three weeks away from home -- ran out of prepaid time. Don't have credit card back yet. Agreed not to play during school. I have between August 24th and September 1st to finish this goal. *prays*
2. Finish watching season 1 of Sailor Moon.
3. Find back external harddrive and move a bunch of files to it so I have room on my computer again. .5 so far.
4. Keep up with the healthy lifestyle I've been doing.  - Slowly getting back on track.
5. Get my guitar fixed and retuned and start to play again.  -Found it! Now the hard part is getting it down from the loft in the garage. >.<

::grumble::  Okay, let's change that to just "quit soda" (note, not caffeine) for the moment.  I'm ironing out the details with Hubby's help.  (More or less.  He's a little more able to just quit things cold than I am, and seems not to understand why I would feel the need to phase out instead of just stopping.  But he does have some good points.)  So...  Quit soda, details of plan to come.

Okay, so I haven't been updating because I haven't had much measurable progress exactly, and I still don't really have an exact plan.  I've cut back a LOT, though, pretty successfully.  Of course, I've done this by replacing soda with higher-caffeine drinks like coffee, which is arguably not progress in some ways, but...  For the moment I think I'm OK in that area, so we'll call it progress.

Let's make this a bit more measurable:  No soda, period, for one month straight.  (Currently that's until 9/13.)  After that I'll lighten up a little for special occasions and such, but the point here is to break the habit and make it genuinely a treat rather than something I just automatically reach for.

Still looking.  Waiting on August and some other work plans to finalize before moving out.  Still looking for a place that allows a cat and is inexpensive.  Not having a lot of luck.  Sad

Husband has an interview for a job at the other end of the state sometime in September.  Until then, everything is on hold. So, progress in that I've packed lots of stuff but no progress because we don't know if we're gonna move across the city or across the state.

Let's make this a bit more measurable:  No soda, period, for one month straight. 

Progress:  11 days and counting.  So far so good.  Man it feels like longer than 11 days, though.  I hadn't realized how dependent upon it I'd gotten.

Of course now I'm getting more and more hooked on coffee, which is worse in some ways.  One thing at a time, though.

Adding and fixing is just fine, but I'm going to remove your totals from the group stats.  It's nothing personal- it's just impossible to get a picture of where we are as a group if someone completely drops items from their totals count with each new update.

So group, here are the current stats, minus one:

Number of participants: 10
Total # of goals: 132
Total # goals completed: 40.8
% of goals completed: 30.92%
