10 for 10 Monthly Update

Happy Veggie-versary to me!

Yes, today is my 6 month Veggie-versary.  I can not believe that I have not had meat for 6 whole months.  I do miss it sometimes.  Like when I am watching Masterchef and they are making all these amazing dishes with meat as the feature.  Or when I am starving and just want a hot dog.  But on the whole it has been a great experience and something I will continue with.  For now. :o)

I can't believe we have already gone through 4 months of this year.  In some ways it has flown by but in others it seems to have taken forever.  The older I get the quicker the years seem to pass me by.  So, how did I go in April?

10 For 10 - April

1) Run/walk the Mothers Day Classic in May
I run this in 10 days.  I have done the training and I am ready!

2) Ride at least 3000kms
I rode another 253.58kms which brings me to a grand total of 566.21kms for the year.  Not quite where I should be, but a significant improvement on last month.

3) Finish the knitted blankets
I finished another 11 squares which takes me to a total of 70.  Only 26 more to go then I can start putting these together!

4) Lose 30 kilos
I have not weighed in so I have no idea where I am at with this.  My shape has definitely changed with all the running, but I am not sure that this has reflected on the scales.  I'll weigh in next month!

6) Send at least one children's story to a publisher
The story is almost complete and I have chosen the Publisher.  This will happen within the next 6 weeks.  I am terrified, but excited all at the same time.

I am also 25 days into my Day Zero Project.  The scariest thing about this project, is that I know that in 976 days I will be 40 years old.  It is making my age seem very real to me!  LOL  I really need to complete between 2 and 4 things each month for this to work.  This month I have completed 2 - I went to a Comedy Club, and I joined a Running Club (or am in the process of).  However I have a lot of things that are 'in progress' so I am definitely moving forward with it.

That's it for me today.  Tomorrow Ross & I are having a Date Day instead of a Date Night and are going to the Medieval Fair in Gumeracha.  Thankfully there are buses out there so we can get there since our car is still basically a garage ornament.  We went 2 years ago and loved it.  We were meant to go last year as well, but today is the day, 1 year ago, that Ross's lung collapsed, so we weren't able to make it.  Thankfully he is completely healed and we are looking forward to a great day tomorrow.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Good work.

I need to keep reminding myself of the Day Zero Project, I keep forgetting about it!
But I am definitely in the process of ticking a few things off my list as well.

I need to remember what I wrote for my resolutions and check on them... I think I've fallen a little off track with them... but at the same time, I'm doing heaps of different stuff instead!
