Birthday Wishes and Goals

Well, Last Wednesday, the 14th, was my birthday. I had sushi with Becky and my folks and then went shopping for dress pants that fit. (I did lose those 20 pounds, BTW, so nothing fits anymore.) On my birthday for the last few years I've been doing my fiscal New Years' resolutions. I take these more seriously than I do my Jan 1 resolutions. Birthdays do that.
Without further ado, I present my 2008 goals for my 30th year of life (I turned 29 last week):
  1. On May 14th, 2009, I will have 10% body fat. (This is a huge goal, but I want a six-pack for a little while in my life).
    -Along with this, I will run (the whole way) a 5K.
    -I will finish a century bike ride (100 miles).
    -I will master a knew skill: rock climbing.
  2. Sing
  3. Play piano.
  4. Perform piano in public (I don't know how, but I will)
  5. Read 10 books of my own choosing!
I wrote these up here, because I know someone (M. Filly) will harass me about them until they are completed. I need external motivators (by the way, thanks to everyone who harassed me about the weight).
Well, I'm out of here for probably a couple weeks, it seems as that's the trend. I will see if I can place some sort of goal realization sheet up here and then I might post more frequently.
