I have something I need to get off my chest: I have been working on one of my bucket list items without blogging about it. I’ve been doing it for the past three weeks, in an effort to surprise you but mostly to save my own skin if I fail. However, if I’m going to be serious about accomplishing these goals, I need some kind of accountability here. So, here goes:

Bucket list #2: Have rock hard abs.

Last month I signed up for a class at the local community center that targeted your stomach muscles through the use of various exercises. While the class only lasts 30 minutes (which includes five minutes of stretches at the end) it has been a pretty intense workout for me. I’m not used to doing “side planks” or using weights in my routine. Heck, I’m not really used to a routine in general. 

While I only have about three classes left to go, I haven’t seen much of a difference in the way I look in a T-shirt these days. So, as much as I would like to announce that I will have accomplished yet another bucket list goal by the end of this month…I seriously doubt that’s going to happen. But still, the good old college try is what’s important, right?  

So, I will update you in a month about my progress in this area. In addition, I’m happy to report that I am now eating better, running on my treadmill regularly and not avoiding stairs at all costs, like I used to. 

See? Progress!
