Overarching goals: get in better shape, get more organized, take more time to myself, focus on my hobbies more. See below for metrics/how to.
Fitness and Health:
- Participate fully in my friend’s charity weight loss challenge as a tracking mechanism.
- 156 times to the gym or 4,680 minutes of cardio, whichever comes first. (This equates to 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Could go less times but work out longer, or more times but work out less.)
- Register for, train for, and actually complete a 5K.
- No electronics after 11:30pm.
- Drink water every morning first thing and with dinner.
- Create a budget and stick to it in order to (1) pay of all of my credit cards and (2) save at least $1,000. Consider using Mint as a helpful tool. Also, enforce by taking out cash at the beginning of every month and using that for any entertainment, food, shopping, going out. Use debit card for gas, online-only purchases (amazon/itunes), and grocery shopping. Manage online credit card statements and eliminate unnecessary monthly charges.
- Friend organizing: Collect and organize addresses, phone numbers, and contact information for all friends can think of.
- Digital organizing:
Collect and organize online bookmarks, clean up sites I follow in my google reader, compile all passwords, organize saved documents & photos on my computer.
Time to self and focusing on hobbies:
- Stay at home 2 nights each week. Can substitute for hanging out at someone’s house. Need this time for laundry, cleaning, groceries, cooking for week, working out.
- Take 52 photos.
- Write at least one short erotic story.
- Create Kinky&Awkward website or blog, fill with moments.
- Go to at least one never-been-before destination, either domestically or internationally.
- Learn more about rope from the top perspective: sommerville bowline, double coin, TK, decorative karadas.
- Acquire a flogger and learn to properly use it.
- Continue to improve my “saying no” skills when it comes to pick up play and negotiations.
- Have good sex with someone I care about, whom I lust for, and whose company I enjoy. Part and parcel, more blowjobs and orgasms! Again, all safely, with carefully considered partners.
- Watch the movie Secretary, finally. Preferably while tied up.
- Experience wax play as a bottom.
