Well crap... forgot this again.  Roll Eyes

1. Lose 1-2 pounds per week-- down .4 lbs
      1a. Meet final goal for weight/fitness-- Met pants size half of this..WOOHOO
      1b. Once met, maintain for rest of season (this might be the hardest part, lol)

2. Make at least 8 (preferably more) day hikes this season, working towards an overnighter the first part of Sept.-- Four down, four to go. I think the overnight one is no longer an option though. Sad

3. Keep up with the weeding/care of herbs and veggies.--So far so good.

4. Figure out if I'm moving. If not, figure out some way to pay bills while being a full time student.--I am moving... Which has just overloaded my schedule >.<

5. Get final arrangements together for trip to Indy the middle of August.--Wish I had time for another one..

          Health Stuff
        • Walk at least three times a week, at least a mile each time.
        Fail.  Damn it.  First the heat and humidity got to me, causing my asthma to flare up, and then I had a bad bout with the stupid fibro, which made it really painful to even walk half a mile, so yeah.  Failed.
        • Reduce the amount of meat we're eating significantly.
        I've gone vegetarian, and I've got the crew down to one omnivore meal a day, or every other day, so this one is a Win!
        • Keep working on yoga.  Do at least one sun salute a day, two on the good days.
        I've managed to keep this going, despite the pain crud, so this one is a Win!
        [/list]
        2/3
          Garden Stuff
        • Keep the garden well tended, weeded, watered and harvested.
        End of season- everything is out save for a few of the cabbage family and the carrots, the tomatoes and peppers are still putting on a couple fruits, the herbs are about to come in to be dried/frozen.  I'm calling this a Win!  While the garden was small this year, I maintained it well and got quite a large harvest out of it.
        [/list]
        1/1
          Religious Stuff
        • Perform Midsummer Rites and do it well.
          done
        • Write up Lughnassadh ritual.
          done
        • Write up Mabon ritual.
          done
        • Continue PIE and Irish language studies.
          nibble nibble at these, lifetime goals
        • Create a new, more appropriate altar for Bridget.
          done
        [/list]
        5/5
          House Stuff
        • Actually break ground and start work on the foundations for the new house before fall.
        fail
        • Insulate around the footings of the cabin.
        almost finished
        • Install woodstove in cabin and in trailer (to be reused in new house later)
        to be done this coming week
        • Make repairs to bathroom floor to get us through another year in this house.
        fail

        [/list]
        2/4
        [/list][/list][/list]
        10/13= 77% completed or nearly so.  Which is a bit better than originally anticipated.  Plus, a handful of other things were added on and finished, including building another dog run/house.  I'm pleased with the progress made this season.  Now, to begin working on my list for next season!

        Don't panic.

        Ok, panic.  There's only one week left in summer (or winter as the case may be).   Time to start wrapping up all those summer goals and post your final results no later than the 21st.  I'll start the autumn/spring thread next weekend, so start thinking about what needs to be done next season.

        2. Talk to guidence counceler about possible new academic path/register for classes -- Done

        Creative Goals

        2. Explore the historic sites in my area -- Not really
        3. Hmmm, isn't there always one goal I always make that goes here?  Oh well, it's probably not important.

        Total Goals: 10
        Finished Goals: 4 (or 40%)
