45 Goals for 45 years

I did this a couple of years and made a list of things that I wanted to do over the year. I do this on my birthday and make as many goals as I am years old. The last time I did this I didn't achieve all of my goals, but I do feel like I did many things that I would not have done otherwise. So I think it's time to do it again! Some of these may have been on my last list, and may be on my next one too, but it gives me some things to work toward!

1. Volunteer for something, anything.
2. Olympic distance Tri
3. Get rid of some of this weight, I would be happy to see 175 (still heavy but a feel good weight for me.)
4. Read at least 4 "self help" books, about any subject. Money, fitness, weight loss.....
5. Go to a spinning class.
6. Spend more time with friends, keep in better contact.
7. Go on a date. :)
8. Work on becoming a positive person again. Try to get rid of the negative.
9. Hiking-do it this summer!
10. Get a new bike.
11. Do bike across Nebraska if Jen does.

19. Seriously think and look for new job as economy gets better.
20. Pay down my credit cards-alot! All though I don't have much debt, it's more then I'm comfortable with.
21. D0 not use credit cards unless it's an emergency! That new bike is not an emergency. :(
22. Do something with this hair! Certainly a cut and maybe a color.
23. Get out! Stop sitting at home so much.
