Update: I’ve got a couple months left. I’ve changed a few items that no longer hold the same interest as they did nearly 2 years ago. I’m proud of what I have accomplished so far and I’m hoping to get this whole list done by September!

I turned 28 this week. With everything that has happened, it would be easy to just bury myself in my children and day-to-day life and let myself go. But I don’t want to do that. My life isn’t over and I won’t let myself give up on who I am. So in order to help keep myself moving forward, I have made a list of goals for me to accomplish in the next two years.

Here they are, 30 goals to hit before I turn 30.

2. Be able to do 25 push-ups
3. Actually be able to do all of the yoga moves in a class
