To Do List & Wish List

It’s mid year it’s getting harder to make ends meet. Always does around this time. Tax refund mula is all used up. Time to start looking for a part time job. I signed up to go back to school as if I didn’t’ have enough on my plate with a full time job and my kids but a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do. I’m already dreaming of my next tax return. I usually buy me something and this coming year I have a list! I want a Nikon D90 or similar model. I want that ipod Nike thing and a good pair of Nikes. Also want a heart rate monitor or a Body Bugg or a Gowearfit. I’m going to have to do some research before I pick one. I can scratch the ipod itself of my list ‘cause I got in early July but I have that with inspirational speakers. I’m hoping I’ll learn something. I’m using my MP3 at the gym and it’s probably because of it that I’m loving the treadmill lately. I just uploaded Lady Ga Ga’s Love Game song. I gotta get more though. Especially fast beat music that’ll keep me going on the treadmill. I usually run 25-30 minutes straight. I remember when a running 1 minute was too much. I can also scratch running an official 5k of my To-Do list. I accomplished that on May 23rd, 2009. Other things on my To-Do list are:
Go to Vegas… never been… yes I know 0.o
Ride a mechanical bull… no comment
Get a degree… associates for starters.
Shoot a gun… I don’t know about this one… maybe because at one point in my life I wanted to be a cop. I don’t want to kill anything I just want to go to a shooting range and shoot a target or something. Maybe I should be setting deadlines so umm… Vegas no later than 2010. Getting a degree is going to be tough since I can only go part time but I’m going to aim for 2012. Wow shooting a gun and riding a bull (not at the same time) I just thought it would happen… I don’t know how. Well I know that The Saddle Ranch at West Gate has a bull but I have to meet my goal weight in order to do that. No way am I gonna hop on that thing looking like this! I’ve watched Urban Cowboy one to many times. So I guess first I have to meet my goal weight of 140lbs. That’s approximately 30lbs if I lose 1.5lbs a week it take approx. 20 weeks to hit my goal. I think that’s reasonable and realistic. Then I’ll ride the bull :) It’s time for me to start keeping track of my calorie deficit’s again. As for the gun I say I have to do it some time in 2010 also. Well not very specific target dates but it’s something better than nothing and it give me something to work towards.
