Goal Check in 2nd Quarter

We are halfway through the year. Can you believe it?
Here is my quarterly check in for goals.
  1. Complete Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 - She's so mean but definitely kicks your butt
    • I finished Week 1 and 2.
    • Revising this one: Complete New Rules of Lifting for Women and Couch to 5K
  2. Start a dance class
  3. Save more money and tighten up on a budget - We have a lot of vacations in 2013 planned
    • We are well on our way! Budget for our biggest vacation is relatively set and we've saved enough for it already.
  4. Possibly find a new job - I like mine, it's just not what I was hired for
    • I swear there is nothing out there right now. I've been looking for 6 months and sadly, only one face-to-face interview, one phone interview.
  5. Renovate the kitchen cupboards - Change the color and add better organization
    • I'm not sure this will get done this year.
  6. Read 40 50 books! I missed by goal by 6 in 2011 but read some amazing books
    • I revised this to 40 last quarter.
    • Currently finished 18 books!
  7. Go to church more often - I'd like to go twice a month
    • Didn't go once this quarter either.
  8. Do a bible study - either with friends or by myself
    • It's taking us longer than 30 weeks as the book suggests. Life has a way of messing up our schedule.
  9. Keep in better touch with friends and family - Call friends and see family more often
    • Still horrible at the friend part. Why is it so hard for me to just pick up the phone? 
    • Now that Sister#2 is down here, we are seeing each other a ton! All 3 of us have been getting together frequently which is awesome.
  10. Meal plan weekly
    • Good for a few weeks, and then we lose it. Overall, pretty good.
  11. Start teaching piano in the fall
    • Advertised for lessons.
    • I have 2 prospective students right now.
  12. Piano: Practice, Complete Grade 9 RCM Exams 
    • Reworking through Grade 7 and Grade 8. My wrist only allows me to play for 15 - 20 minutes at a time.
