1. Get most of my Christmas shopping completed by November

2. Get my running back up to be able to withstand 10 km… I injured myself 6 weeks ago and have been in physio for the past 6 weeks!

3. Cook my first turkey this thanksgiving!

… this is hard. Because I have been following Mr. Bee’s plan to a T for the past 2 months. I already am doing a lot of things 🙂 ha ha.

-Finding a creative outlet for my frustrations.

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  Great idea!

1) Make progress on dissertation

2) Write another grant proposal

3) Keep focusing on better eating/exercising habits, and lose 15-20 pounds!

4) Clean and de-clutter my apartment, so that whenever SO and I are ready to take the leap of living together (hopefully after engagement), I won’t have such a massive job sorting through old books, papers, clothes, etc!

5) Figure out my (dating) anniversary present for SO

1. Focus on school – I started my masters in April and I need to keep a 3.5 for the first 2 quarters to stay in.

2. continue my weight loss mission- I’ve been using school as a really lame excuse not to exercise, but I lost 35 pounds 2 years ago and I have 10 to go

3. Save money for a rainy day/ pay off student loans

4. Spend time with friends instead of just SO all the time

5. Cook more than once a week like I used to before i started school
