The Want List Updated

I thought it was time to update The Want List just to show myself how far I've come.

Green indicates that I feel I have accomplished the item, Purple indicates that I am on my way, but it can’t be crossed off yet and Red items are new I Want list items.


I want to feel better (alive) and not tired all the time.

I want to go to a restaurant and not wonder if I am going to fit in the booth.

I want to be a runner. (Technically a runner can run a 9 minute mile, I am much slower than that)

I want to sit in any lawn chair, not having to eye its sturdiness before I sit down.

I want to go horseback riding and not worry about hurting the horse. (even though it is too cold to go horseback riding, I would feel comfortable doing it now)

I want to put my shirts on without stretching them out first.

I want my arms to hang at my sides not straight out because of under arm fat. (Getting closer)

I want to go canoeing without worrying about hitting the bottom of the river. (Considering it was -4 degrees here this am, not going to check the progress on this item.)

I want 10,000 daily steps to be automatic.

I want to fly on an airplane and not worry that they are going to make me purchase 2 seats. (Not sure on this one).

I want to see my collar bone. (I think I saw a little bit of one while lifting weights last week).

I want to run agility with my dogs. (I certainly could run the course, but my dogs need trained)

I want my breast to stick out farther than my gut.

I want to not be afraid to go to the doctor.

I want to lower my blood pressure/cholesterol/blood sugar.

I want to run the Crim Festival of Races in Flint in August.

I want to run a 5K in under 30 minutes.

I want to push mow my lawn this summer.

I want to weigh less than 200 pounds.
