30 Before 30

This was an idea I got from reading another GREAT blog Fat Girl in a Skinny World!! Hope you don't mind I'm borrowing the idea! I just love this concept...it's a bucket list...without actually having to kick the bucket! I've never met the lovely author of Fat Girl in a Skinny World but we have a LOT in common. We're similar in age and we're both nurses! We also have the same goal weight and basically the same starting weight!

Check out her blog! She's awesome :D And plagarism is the highest form of flattery? Right? Right!?

Here is a list of 30 things I want to accomplish before I turn 30! Approximately 7 years!

1)      Be able to go shopping and fit into “normal sized” clothes.

2)      Hike up Talcott Mountain in CT

3)      Get my APRN (nurse practitioner certification)

4)      Completely redo my 70s bathroom

5)      Get a tattoo

6)      Learn to Grill

7)      Visit Canada! Road trip anyone?

8)      Participate in a triathalon

9)      Buy a car with 4WD – being a homecare nurse out in blizzards without 4wd stinks!

10)   Be able to do real pushups!

11)   Learn to dance –without causing major injuries to everyone in my general area

12)   Master the Spanish Language

13)   Go to Mexico and Spain!

14)   Go on a goodwill trip with Doctors without Borders or another similar agency!

15)   Be part of a live studio audience –at the Talk? The View? Jerry Springer? Looks fun!

16)   Get married and have kid(s)

17)   Start acting again! Audition for plays!

18)   Buy stock in Frank’s Hotsauce – I eat enough of it to drive shares up I’m sure.

19)   TMI  - get a bikini wax? I’m scared.

20)   Skydive!

21)   Visit Hawaii

22)   When I reach my goal weight, have a sexy photo shoot. Lingerie anyone?

23)   Go on a whale watch

24)   Run…not a 25k or a 5k…just be able to run. The rest will fall into place

25)   Pay off all my student loans

26)   Get myself something designer! Jeans, dress, something flashy when I reach goal

27)   See the Aurora Borealis

28)    Karaoke in public…never done it before. Hopefully I can muster my strength! Tequila anyone?

29)   Make a difference in one person’s life.

30)   Become a success story!

What are some things that you want to accomplish before 30 or 50 or 100!! I'd love to hear your goals and your dreams!!

Thanks again to Fat Girl in a Skinny World for this idea!


  1. Aw you're too sweet! Thanks for the shout out! (However, I did not see the APA citation for that plagerism....haha). Awesome list. I happen to know this really awesome girl, she's also an RN that lives in Canada, you can come visit her and walk up "youbitch" hill with her....HAHA talk soon

  2. I would love to meet you (for "real") and you could show me your Canada! It's odd because my whole family has been to Canada, my brother and dad went, my sister went with a school trip and my parents went to Niagra for their anniversary. So everyone in my immediately family has gone but me! I need to fix that!! And I want to meet 'youbitch' hill and show it who's the BOSS. :-P Maybe halfway weight prize?

  3. YES!!!! Sounds like a good plan...cmoooon 75 lbs ;)

  4. You're on!!! After I complete my mini goal of lowering risk of Type II diabetes (I have a very high risk) I'm going to add a tracker for it :D

  5. YAY! Aw I cant wait now! Makes me wanna go run up youbitch hill haha. Well...Kinda...I'm so sore

  6. Hey I think 30 before 30 was all me! HAHA, jk. Hey Kate, I deleted comments from my blog post today - take no offense. We have too much class to stroke his effin ego by getting fired up. I have your comment in email though and I appreciate what you had to say. You're a doll, as usual. PS - I love this list! If we're making plans for Canada - I'm in. I've always wanted to go and I have a major thing for Canadian guys. Don't ask why because I really don't know. haha.

    Inbox me anytime, my email add is on my blog page. :)
