25 Before 26 Update

Good morning!

A few months ago I wrote a post about me wanting to get a load of things off my 101 things in 1001 days list checked off. I’ve been a bit rubbish and now that there’s only a few weeks of March left (my birthday is on the 26th) it’s time to panic!

I’ve copied my list below and crossed off what I’ve done and edited a few things….

Here’s my 25:

1: Visit another place in the UK, my aim is 5 and I’ve ticked off 2 – Visiting North Wales next weekend to catch up with friends. She’s just bought a new house up there so technically I’ve not been there before, this can be checked off!

2: Read 4 Classic Books. 20 was my aim and I’ve only read 1 so far. First is Robin Hood

3: Second is Frankenstein, I’ve heard its a great story and a complete classic

4:I also plan on reading the real Beauty and the Beast

5: The real Jungle Book

6: Wuthering Heights

7: Treasure Island

8: Dracula

9: and lastly the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. This is quite a list…..fingers crossed I get some time off soon! – Basically I’ve read none of these, but I have read the Hobbit which counts as a classic!

10: Try 2 new foods. My aim is 10, surely 2 more can be done over Christmas! – Mushroom Pate and Watercress done!

11: Visit an art gallery; cannot think where this will be but I’ll have to find one – this has not happened. I’m going to have to find one near me!

12: Give blood – this is simple and I have to fit this in somewhere; maybe on a week off – Week off at the end of March I will make sure this happens.

13: Work harder at toning up – Attending the gym 5 times a week and have my weigh in at the end of March with my trainer….eek!

14: I’d like to try rock climbing, it’s supposed to be a great way to tone your upper body and I’d love to give it a go. There’s an indoor climbing centre in Cardiff so I think I’ll start there – Money is an issue here, think I’ll have to drag my family along and maybe they’ll pay…if only!

15: Start yoga/pilates – Still haven’t tried a class now either! Easy to rectify this though.

16: Gorge walking – a fun day out that my dad and brother also want to do, winner! Family time will always be a good thing. Think this one is for the summer instead of February!

17. Running 10k is something that terrifies me but i have to get there to complete other challenges! The original challenge for this got cancelled but by the end of March I plan on running more than once a week as it will be light enough when I get home from work.

18: Go ziplining – courtesy of a Groupon deal me and M have bought tickets and will be booking in for April / May time.

19:Go to a gig – Still nothing planned but fingers crossed something fun will come along.

20: Learn to cook something new, one of each sweet and savoury. This hasn’t happened yet but I plan on learning to make lasagne and a kind of cake that I can take into work for my birthday.

21: Continue to plough through the excess of ‘stuff’ in my possession – This a slow and painful process, it’s not going well!

22: Learn basic things to fix on a car – The winter has been a learning curve with my first car; snow, ice, window chips, torrential rain, flooding and fallen trees. Still learning….a lot!

23: Go to London over Christmas – This was AWESOME! Me and my mum had such a great time having an indulgent wander, we will definitely be going again next year.

24: Visit an Antique or Vintage Fair – am yet to attend one of these too, maybe one of my friends who has just bought a house would like a wander.

25: Write a short story. I don’t think this will ever happen if I’m honest but I would still love to do it.

What do you think of my list? Achievable?

Do you have a list of tasks you’d like to achieve by a certain date?
Do you have an tips for achieving them all??

Send me any links you have to your own lists, I love reading them!

    It's always good to set goals for yourself. I'm forever setting myself little challenges to complete. P.xxGreyWalls
