To Do

300. Try Hatha Yoga

Completed many times over. I’ve actually tried a few different kinds of yoga – Hatha, Yin, Iyengar, and even Ashtanga. I much prefer the gentler, slower forms like Hatha and Yin. I enjoy pulling my mind’s focus to my body and my breath. I like distracting myself from my relentless lists of things to do […]

275. Be able to do a one-armed pushup

Updated August 10, 2009 I think that I could perhaps use the 100 pushups program to work my way up from being able to do around 20 girlie pushups to being able to do a full one-armed pushup. I think I can do it. I just have to find a good time to get started.

220. Learn to inline skate

Updated September 6, 2009 Admittedly, this was added to my list when inline skating was still cool. About ten years ago, I spent my income tax refud on a pair of top-of-the-line inline skates and special inline skating socks that wicked moisture away and padded your feet in all the right places. That was also […]

193. Achieve washboard abs

Updated February 7, 2010 Some of these items I lose track of. I don’t keep track of the dates I originally added items to the list, and I didn’t even keep them in order. But I think it goes without saying that this idealistic little gem was added to the list during high school when […]

105. Hike the Appalachian Trail

Updated January 2, 2011 Maybe I’ll do this after I’m retired. It’s probably just the pace of my life, but there’s something really appealing about spending a couple of weeks in the wilderness, unplugged and enjoying the trees.

93. Ride a bicycle built for two

Updated September 18, 2009 I know, I know, it’s a cheesy, touristy, silly thing to do. And that’s exactly why it interests me so. One of these Sundays, I’m going to find a willing partner and head out to Venice Beach where we’ll rent a silly tandem bicycle and go for a ride up and […]

74. Finish a marathon

Updated August 11, 2009 Notice that I didn’t say ‘run a marathon’ – just ‘finish’. There are plenty of people who walk marathons. A few months back, I did the C25K program. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s “Couch to 5K” as in couch potato to running a 5K in 12 weeks. Yes, I […]

28. Take yoga classes

Completed June 2004 I was going through a weird transitional time of my life when I first stumbled into yoga. You know what I’m talking about. One of those times when you’re not who you were, but not yet who you’ll become. I was in the midst of change and wasn’t really sure where it […]
