40 Before 40 – Update the First

As I mentioned Tuesday, I’ve spent most of the time since my birthday sick. That’s really cut into my #40before40 project. While sick, I couldn’t even read – which was one of the saddest parts of being ill.

However, I have managed to knock one item off the list.

Item 34: Drink a bottle of extravagant champagne.

On March 2, I opened a bottle of the most expensive bubbly that my local bottle shop had. And lo! it was good. Very good.

I also am making progress on the cheese-tasting (such a chore, that one):

And I have a stack of award winning books (all kinds of awards) from the library…

SO MANY BOOKS!

SO MANY BOOKS!

I’m hoping to have a more productive month going forward. In the next month, I’ll do that 5K (Saturday!), try another cheese and read a few books, I’m going to get to a hot yoga class (next Wednesday). I want to make a pie (and a birthday cake for that Bean – he’ll be four soon!) and some bread, and maybe, if I’m super ambitious, I’ll make a cheese.

Month one of 39 was not the best month ever, but I’m hopeful things are just going to go uphill from here.

Working on goals 37 (feeling good about fitness) AND 38 (self care) by getting back to one of my favorite things...trail running.
