2009 New Year’s Resolutions â€“ Second Quarter Update
In March I did a 2009 first quarter update of the progress of my New Year’s Resolutions. In that post I said I would do a progress update every quarter. June means it’s time for a second quarter update for 2009. My second quarter progress for my 2009 New Year’s Resolutions is below.
- Read at least book a week
I have read/listened to 42 books year to date. That is still an average of almost two books a week.
- Lose 25 pounds
I meet my weight loss goal! I started off the year at 215 and today I weighed in at 190 pounds. I’m going to readjust the goal and make my new goal 175 pounds.
- Eat better
My eating has gotten better. I still have a weak spot for candy and desert. I started replacing some meals with a protein shake to help control my caloric intake. Overall, I’m doing better but still have a ways to go.
- Finish Project â€œAâ€
The original idea for this project is finished. It hasn’t done that well. I need to change a few things. I will update more when it is finished.
- Start Project â€œBâ€
- Start Project â€œCâ€
I’m working with a co-working on a new idea. Once we have a prototype I will post a link.
- Learn a new hobby
I have taken a few good pictures but still have a lot to learn about photography and I need to use my camera more.
- Keep dating my wife
We don’t have a normal date night but we do go out and do stuff several times a week. This will become more difficult once the baby is born.
- Focus on goals
If you count this evaluation and the fact that our savings is back on track my goals are moving along.
