It's that time again! I'm here to check in about my 101 in 1001. I actually got through a good bit of my goals these past few months, and I'm amped up for the last few months out to the finish line (where I'll start a new 1001 days). Are you working on a 101 in 1001, too? Share your links in the comments below, so I can check it out!

Adventure, Fun, & New Things

1. Travel to five new places (at least two new states, 2/2). (3/5) Second new state - Phoenix, Arizona 9/30-10/3/18. We're also heading to Vegas later this week!

17. Go paddle-boating. Went to this weird park I won tickets to, and paddle-boated for maybe a grand total of five minutes, because geez, it really works the legs. 9/1/18

Health, Beauty & Fitness

37. Get my A1C under 7.0 and maintain it. I got my A1C under 6.9 - let's see if I can maintain it! 9/11/18

40. Complete at least one 5k each year. (3/3) I've completed two this year (and since my last post!). The OneWalk for Diabetes on 10/20/18 and the Great Inflatable Race on 11/10/18.

42. Walk 10,000 steps at least 20 days out of each month for six full months. I did this! I'm so proud of myself. I've been really pushing myself to meet this goal and I finally did it. From June to November 2018.

46. Take a self-defense class. Planned and attended one with some co-workers on 9/24/18!


71. Increase my Bloglovin' following to 200. (114/200) I've gotten a little higher on this list, but not quite 200.

Books & TV

75. Read all the books I already own that I haven't read yet. I've marked off two more (The Gates & The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), but I'm positive I won't complete this goal - besides my list needs updated. 

78. Complete a reading challenge each year. (2/3) Working on 2018. I have 7 more books to complete to totally finish this year (which I haven't done any other year).

80. See the midnight premiere of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the sequels (if they come out within the 1001 days). Went and saw an early premiere of Crimes of Grindelwald on 11/13/18.

Create & Learn

84. Create a one second a day video for one full year. This is almost done and I'm excited to share it (though it's mostly cats and books).

Love & Marriage

93. Take a three-year anniversary trip. (2018). We didn't do it this year, because it honestly just wasn't the right time, but we did spend a day together in the city and we're taking a trip this month, so I'm marking this one off.

Give Back

95. Do at least six random acts of kindness each year. I love and hate that I put this one on the list, because I don't keep track of the RAKs I do, but I do them often.

96. Donate blood two times each year. (5/6) Donated in 9/2018 and in 11/2018!

97. Potter it forward. I love Harry Potter and it had such an impact on me, I wanted to share with others. I was able to complete this goal by leaving a note in Order of the Phoenix at the library last weekend. 

Career & Development

99. Complete my Master's degree in Student Affairs/Counseling with a 3.5 or higher GPA. I'm continuing to work on this.
