I’m almost surprised that there are so many things left to do (and so little time to do it in!) but I think that’s really just because there are some things that are harder to do than others. The travelling for example. It’s unlikely I’m going to get to New York before September but I might be able to make it to Greece. I won’t kick myself too hard if I don’t complete all 101 things – the whole idea of this was just to ‘do more’ and you certainly can’t say that I haven’t done that.
Completed this month: 5
32. Bake my own bread
Q and I baked a loaf of wholemeal spelt bread, and it was decidedly tasty. Much softer than loaves I’ve made in the past, which is a bonus result.
84. Go to the gym 20 times [20/20]
This was originally “Get 20 hrs on Wii Fit” but I left my Wii Fit behind when I moved out of my parents house so I changed it to fit my circumstances. It took me three and a half months to achieve 20 visits to the gym, which I know is not fantastic. Given that I have been a pure couch potato my entire life tho, it’s a small but significant change.
85. Go running
Since I have been attending the gym I thought I’d give the treadmill a go and…well. It’s really not for me. I can jog for a kilometre without stopping (which I don’t think is awful and is certainly far better than before) but I just don’t enjoy jogging. Really, I have no need to run and that makes it hard to do. However, I am enjoying the cross trainer, the bike and the rowing machine so I will still be getting my cardio workout, fear not. It looks like Q will be running the Cardiff Half Marathon without me tho. Sorry love.
57. Read all Terry Pratchett books
I had three of his books left to read when I started this month. I managed to find two in the library but Carpe Jugulum was nowhere to be seen. Lucky for me, The Cowboy is a massive Pratchett fan and an obsessive book hoarder. He came down to see me at the weekend and I polished off the book a few days before the end of the month. Phew!
72. Cash out £40 on www.onepoll.com again
This was originally “Make £50 on www.slicethepie.com” because it used to be an easy way to make money but they changed the earning threshold and I got quite bored of it. So I changed it to cashing out on Onepoll again, which I did this month. Whoo for free money.
5 achieved, several to go. If I can get to 85 completed I think I’ll be happy. Here’s hoping!
