A friend of mine did this a couple of years ago, setting out 40 things she wanted to accomplish before she turned 40. I loved the idea, so I started my own list. I have until November 2015 to get them all done, and so far so good, but time's a-tickin'!
In no particular order, with notes if they've already been completed:
Take a Zumba class - DONE! February 27, 2014. SO much fun, I will be going again!
Japan - Trip scheduled for July 2015
Be able to cook a decent meal on a camping stove, not just spaghetti or hot dogs
Run a half marathon - DONE! 4 so far, and counting:
Tinker Bell Half Marathon, Disneyland, January 20, 2013.
BMO Vancouver Half Marathon, May 5, 3013.
Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon, June 23, 2013.
The Biggest Loser Half Marathon, Seattle, October 13, 2013.
See more theatre - DONE, although this is an ongoing one as "more" is a relative term.
Ride a tandem bike
Go canoeing - DONE! This is now a regular part of our family time.
Take a cooking class
Do the Grouse Grind - DONE! Friday, May 17, 2013
Go ziplining (I did this years ago, pre weight loss and totally freaked out. I want to try it with less fear!) DONE! May 2, 2014 as part of a departmental retreat and team building!
Cook a turkey
Go to a resort & spa - DONE! Kingfisher Oct 25-27, 2012
Try paddle boarding - DONE! August 2013
Volunteer for a race event
Achieve a marketing director position - I may need to rethink this one, my current title is manager. I LOVE my job and am not really looking to change anytime soon!
Try karaoke (I tried this about 18 years ago. I think it's time to face my fears again.)
Maui - 2014
Go horseback riding (like #10 & 16, it's time to go again.)
Try dragon boating
Still be at the goal weight I reached on July 30, 2010 by the time I reach 40.
Try an ethnic cuisine I've never tried before
Get back to skiing
Do more snowshoeing - DONE! Much like canoeing, this has become a fairly regular activity for our family since we got our own snowshoes!
See a drive-in movie
Take a ballet class
Take a ballroom dancing class
Try a circus class/fly on a trapeze
Ride in a hot air balloon
See the Grand Canyon
Ride a moped/scooter
See a ballet
Go rock climbing again (haven't gone for about 10 years). Indoor climbing counts.
Do a hike-in camping trip
Take a kickboxing class
Try hot yoga
Take a girls' trip somewhere fun like Vegas
Get a Coast to Coast medal for completing a Disneyland & Disneyworld half marathon in one year (2015)
Join a board off directors - DONE! I am on the board of the New Year's Eve Festival Society in Vancouver.
(one extra for good measure) Have a monthly (or more) date night with Mr. Awesome. DONE! This is ongoing but so far so good on keeping to it! We try and go out for dinner just the two of us at least once a month.
Looking at this list is a bit overwhelming as there are a LOT of things left to do. I think I'll need to look at this list more often to stay on track!
