Updated Crazy Cool

It occurred to me the other day that I don't really have any goals that I am working on. Which would explain why I am totally treading water and not really accomplishing much. So time to update my goals and post my newest 10 Crazy Cool things!

If you haven't read a Crazy Cool post before, it's something like this: Chalene Johnson, my mentor and hero {creator of all things Turbo!} asks that you write a list of 10 things you want to accomplish, from scratch, and you write them in the present tense, like they already happened. And these are things that would be like STELLER and AMAZING if they happened within a year. So, with that preface, here we go:
  1. I am sealed to my husband.
  2. I am pregnant.
  3. I weigh 152 pounds {100 pound loss from when I started last year, 140 pound total loss}
  4. I have quit my job so I can stay home and be a mom and wife 
  5. We have $13,500 in our Emergency Fund.
  6. Jake & I have performed an endowment session together at all Utah & Salt Lake County Temples {Provo, Timp, Draper, Jordan River, Oquirrh, Salt Lake & Bountiful} 
  7. I have crossed the finish line of a half marathon race while pregnant 
  8. I have received my Young Women's medallion 
  9. We are still debt free {except our mortgage} 
  10. I gave birth the all natural way! 
Some of these are time consuming, some I don't have a lot of control over. But these are all things that'd be AMAZING to have happen in the next 12 months, and that's the point of these goals. I'll keep you posted on our progress as we go!

  1. I'm blog stalking you today. ;) Those goals are all really awesome! I had a totally natural birth, so I just want to say that you can totally do it! When I told people that I wanted that they were all like "Oh, well, don't feel bad about yourself when you quit and get an epidural." It took preparation, and it was incredibly intense, but it is so possible and so worth it. I don't think that we should tell women that they're incapable of having babies naturally. Sometimes things happen, and that's why we're blessed to live in a time when doctors can help out, but that doesn't mean that all women are utterly incapable of natural birth. I felt amazing immediately afterwards, and it's still something that I look back on nearly a year (!!) later and it's something that makes me really, really happy.

    You can do it!
