Resolution Update : Midway

We’re officially halfway through 2017. Some resolutions are fine, some dismal, and some finished.

1. Run 730 miles – Should have 365 miles. I have 172.5. That’s exactly 10 miles less than half of what I should have.

2. 5,000 push ups and 8,000 leg lifts – Should have 2,500 push ups but only have 1,089. Not close to halfway there.

3. Lose 26 pounds – Should have lost 13 pounds. Instead I gained 2.4. That’s 15.4 pounds off.

4. Support 24 local artists – Should be 12 but have two. I’m actually not worried about this one. Christmas makes this one.

5. 42 manuscript submissions – Should have 21 but have 22.

6. Write 40,000 words and five new stories – Should have 20,000 and 2.5 stories. I have 23,231 and five stories.

7. Read all the New Testament – Should be at 1 John, but I’m done.

8. Read The Nature of Things – Should be on page 128, but am up to 158.

9. Finish Finnegan’s Wake – Should be up to page 170 but I’m done.

10. 300 blog posts – Should have 150 instead of 112.

I think I’ll get at least six, maybe eight. At worst, it should be better than 2016.

  1. How smart and brave to post your resolutions. (I am not that brave. I am afraid of failure)
    You can do it! I am pulling for you!

  2. Thank you! It’s not really smart or brave so much as trying to make me commit to keep working on them.
