One percent

One percent down, 99 to go.  Of the year, that is.  I have a few goals this year.  I hesitate to call them resolutions exactly, but I suppose that’s what they are.  So here’s the list, or at least part of it.

1.  Project 4:4.  Jesus said, “Man does not live on bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”  We’re doing this Read Through the Bible Chronologically in a Year thing at church/work.  So I’m reading along, and will hopefully finish on track.  4 days down.  361 to go.

2.  Redevelop a regular workout routine.  Up until about a month before the wedding, I was working out on a pretty regular basis throughout 2011.  The results were good.  I found muscles I had never seen before (oh, hey there, triceps!), it was a good stress reliever, I liked the effect it had on my body, and while I have yet to experience any sort of runners high, I hated running less than I did before.

The 3 month time-out that was October-December, however, did not do a body good.  I started going back to the gym after Christmas, and have made it there the past 4 days.  At 6:30 AM. You might need to read that again.  6:30 AM.  My goal is at least 4 days/week, but I know if I don’t get up early every morning I’ll have a super hard time sticking with it.  So maybe I’ll do laundry on my off days or something.  So 4 days down, 361 to go.

Along with a regular workout routine, I want to run a 5K.  I technically ran one this fall, but it was just on the treadmill during a Huskers game.  I want to actually train for one and run a charity race (I will not win) this summer or fall.  Goal:  finish without falling over.

3. Reengage in cultural activities in Omaha.  I used to go to the Symphony a lot and  check out exhibits at the Joslyn and go to shows when I had the money.  I’d like to do this again.  I miss it.  So I have a goal of going to one thing each quarter.  First up:  this Drawn to Fashion exhibit at the Durham.  And lucky me, this Costume & the Cinema exhibit is still there, too. And lucky Chad, I’ll find a girl to go with me and not make him be my date.

4.  Practice hospitality.  Host summer BBQs and wine club, throw a dinner party, invite friends over for a riveting mid-campaign political discussion.  I want our house to be a place where people feel welcomed, warm (ha!) and well-fed.
