Bucket List

This blogs URL is A Better Year To A Better Life I wasn’t sure how far this blog would take me when I started out day one. I wasn’t sure if I would need to change the URL eventually or if it would  make sense to keep it going. I realize now it makes sense to keep it the same. Every single year you can choose to make your life better. It only take a few weeks to turn a change into a habit. Every good habit will make your life better. Since I share pretty much entire life with all of you once I finish something I will link it to the post associated!

**Update – if you are new here you may not know but on April 25th 2013 I tore my right ACL. It will require surgery and I will be out of the running game for about 4 – 6 months. I decided in light of this event the page title needed to be changed from “2013 Bucket List” to “Bucket List”. My number one goal for 2013 is to have a safe and active recovery from surgery. I plan on working with my doctor every step of the way to find ways that I can stay the most active. I plan on weight lifting through the process and as soon as I can I will start low impact activities like swimming.

1) Have a safe and active recovery from ACL repair surgery
2) 1:50 half marathonended up with 1:50:43… semi win?
3) Sub 25 5k
4) Go for a weekend camping trip
5) Take the GMATs
6) Sky dive
7) Make sushi
8) Eat 90% Paleo
9) Weigh 140-145lbs consistently – progress
10) Make a little money from blogging
11) Take a cooking class
12) Take a dance lesson
13) Buy a car at end of lease
14) Cook a whole bird
15) Take a barre class
15) Take an aerial yoga class
16) Complete a trail race (ideally half marathon trail)
17) Complete a marathon

  1. This is a great bucket list! I want to learn how to get some giveaways and advertisements this year too.

    • I have done a few reviews but was a donkey and didn’t ask for an extra set for a giveaway, I successfully did this for the first time last week and will have a great one soon. I will email smaller companies of products I want to try – give it a go!

  2. I love your bucket list and I am excited to read all about it!
    I would love to take a dance class, and I have a half marathon PR on my list too!

    PS I’d loe to find an Ariel Yoga or a trapeze class. I Think I’d love it!

  3. An aerial yoga class!? COOOLLL!!!!!!!!! I am sure you will get to cross all of these things off your list, you go girl!

  4. Knock out number 13 tonight! Chickens are incredibly easy to roast and oh-so delicious. You really only need salt and pepper, a suitably sized baking dish, and an oven. Oh, and about two hours to spend lusting after the amazing aromas coming from your kitchen. Pat the chicken dry and rub ample salt and pepper all over the skin. Set in the dish and roast at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then drop the temp down to 300 and let roast for an hour and a half. You can’t fail!

  5. Has the list changed any?
