30 Before 30....An Update

I finally decided to take a look at my 30 before 30 list and see if I had made any progress. I've completed 4 things off the list. 4!!! I'm pretty sure it's been almost a year since I created this and I've only managed to complete 4 things! I've got some work to do. And now I've only got 2 years to make it happen. I realize some of these won't make it, but honestly, I can do better than 4.

re-cap: Ok, so far, here's what has been completed:
1. Spend a weekend watching movies
2. I completely enjoy working out now
3. I have definitely expanded the music collection and it is still expanding
4. And I most certainly started a non-profit. Now, it needs A LOT of work, but it exists nonetheless.

So I think my goal for the next 6 months is to complete the following:

  • Read 6 new books (I have a few in the Que: The Help, Happier, Made to Crave, Heaven Is For Real)

  • Go hiking

  • Plant an herb garden

  • Go to a wine tasting (which technically I did in Oklahoma last December at Girls Gone Wine, but I'm thinking for this I need something more like Chateau Elan)

  • And losing the 80 pounds. So far I'm down a little over 20, so that's really only 60 to go. And well, by August I have to be down another 30 for a challenge at work, so really from August to the end of the year lose another 30 and I've hit it!

What are your suggestions for actually achieving your goals?


  1. Lauren, you can do these! Just schedule a time everyday even if its just 15 minutes to spend time with God.

  2. Ill go hiking with you! And it hasnt been a year since you made this...you have a few months!!!

    But 4 already....and 4 good ones.
