Fall Motivates Me.

Fall is coming! I love fall, it motivates me. I have plans, big plans. I hope that I can stick with them and follow through with my plans.

1. couch to 5K
I want to run in the color run. I need to loose weight. My goal is to loose 70 lbs. I am going to try to get up at 5:30 and try to do this. I think that's when there were been the least amount of people out to see my feeble attempt.

2. Let my hair continue to grow.
After I loose weight and my face is somewhat thinner I want to get my hair cut. So until then I am going to let it grow and then when I cut it I will donate it.

3. Make my own applesauce

4. There are many delicious goodies that I want to make.

5. Bread bowls- I want to master making them.

6. A soup a week. One night every week we will have soup.

7. Bonfires! Lots of Bonfires.
I think we should make it a tradition that the first Friday night of the month is bonfire night at the Roogles Ranch. All is welcome. I love bonfires.

8. I want to master Bagels.
I want to learn how to make all different varieties of them.

9. I have many sewing projects that I want to get finished.

10. I want to paint the metal cabinet in my kitchen.
I have a chair at my parents house that my mom and dad said I could have. I would like to get it as well for the kitchen.

11. Make Cheesecakes
Laura Milmore has agreed to get together and help me figure this one out. I hear she makes an amazing cheesecake. I have a recipe for a pumpkin cheesecake with a Ginger snap crust.

12. Spend more time with Jesus!
I need it.

13. LOVE
Love all with all I've got. It's not as easy as it sounds, our human nature gets in the way. But I am going to try.

I have lots that I want to do. And there are many more things that I haven't listed, I guess these are the most important to me. I hope that I can get motivated and keep it. It would be nice to have someone to accomplish some of this with but I think I am on my own. Wish me luck.

As I read back over this it looks like I am going to have to do an awful lot of exercising to loose the weight I want to loose. After doing the couch to 5K in the mornings I'll have to use my wii fit in the afternoon and then maybe we can take family walks or bike rides in the evenings. I hope I can do it.

Your cheesecake recipe sounds really good! I will look at my calender and let you know dates I'm free. Your fall list is inspiring- I think we are on the same wave length a lot of times! :)

Inspiring list! I think we're often on the same page with things like this. Cheesecake, let me look at my schedule and Dan's work schedule, and I'll let you know what days I can do!
