8 x 4 Lists (I've Been Tagged)

Molly has tagged me to write four lists of 8 things about myself!

If you haven't checked out Molly's blog, you should! Not only is she training for Ironman, she has two Bearded Collies and a St. Bernard.

I'm training for 2 half irons this year ( Ironman someday), have an Old English Sheepdog and a Gordon Setter and we had a St. Bernard growing up.

So naturally I read Molly's blog as much for the dog stuff as for the training! Molly is seriously cool. We have the same coach. She is racing Ironman 70.3 Boise in a few weeks, a race that I'm thinking about doing next year (detailed report please :-) And a bunch of other cool stuff -- LOL!

So, here goes:

8 things to which I'm looking forward

1. Building a seven figure business! :-)
2. Our remodel being done (new kitchen + new office for ME = totally awesome)
3. Our next sailing vacation (nothing currently planned but it has been too long -- we need another one)
4. My upcoming races for Season 2009!
5. Getting a haircut (it has been way. too. long)
6. Getting back to Clean Eating (I've fallen off the wagon and it feels BAD)
7. Getting a new wardrobe (nothing fits me anymore)
8. My birthday (I'm 41 and loving it -- the 40s are totally rad)

8 things I did yesterday

Caution: this is so riveting that you may want to sit down or something. Relax. Breathe deeply. Okay:

1. Ran with Tony
2. Work stuff :-)
3. Attended a teleclass on How to Get Off the Sugar Rollercoaster
4. Got up
5. Ate breakfast
6. Ate lunch
7. Read some blogs
8. Went to bed

8 things I would like to do

1. Ironman (Don't know when. Definitely not now. I will know when it's time and then I will do it.)
2. Own a huge luxurious apartment in NYC and live there at least part of the year
3. Take a trip to Africa
4. Take a trip back to interior Alaska (I was born there and haven't been back since childhood -- well we went on a sanitized cruise up there three years ago but not to the interior)
5. Write a book
6. Go to the grocery store without disliking it so much
7. Ride on the Concorde
8. Get on What Not to Wear (see also below list)

8 shows I watch

1. Without a Trace
2. The Mentalist
3. Medium
4. Two and a Half Men
5. Scrubs
7. Say Yes to the Dress (none of those dresses on there was as perfect as my $99 dress!!!!!)
8. What Not To Wear (Please I really hope someone has been secretly filming me for the past two weeks!)

8 people I tag

1. Calyx
2. Izaac
3. JT
4. Kelly
5. Danielle (even though her comment on my last post made NO SENSE WHATSOEVER -- rofl)
6. Sarah
7. Lisa
8. Chad

That seems like a fun list.

I'll have to give it some thought.

I am actually several 'tags' behind.

So when I catch up, be looking for your name!
