    Happy Birthday month!

    I’d like to volunteer to help with #10, #15, #18, and #24.

    I’ve done Pilates both individually and in a class. I’m not sure it’s going to be your thing, but I’ll be interested to see what you think. The good part about it is that things that seem easy are hard, but my experience is that results are slow. Individual training is very pricey and classes may not be very effective – would depend on the instructor I guess. I’ve just learned that I need more high energy practices, but I commend your desire to try new things. Since you’re in such great shape, i would think CrossFit would be a great challenge – but also pricey.

      I will TOTALLY take you up on those numbers! I think it would be great to have a partner for some of these things. It’s been AGES since I’ve been fishing. And I haven’t ridden my bike on the Burke-Gilman trail since I was a kid. We used to do it all the time as a family and I think Michael would love it.

      The only reason I haven’t done pilates is the cost. I wish my gym offered a class so I can try it for free and see if it’s even something I want to invest in.

      I love Crossfit! And my old trainer owns his own gym now, which I’ve been to and LOVED. The only downside is that it’s at the airport and as far from my house or work as possible!

    Happy (what’s the opposite of belated?) Birthday! And well done on compiling a fantastic list of goals for your 32nd year.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yep! Today is my birthday! Thank you Dan. πŸ™‚

  3. Becky

    Happy birthday month!! I LOVE this idea. I would have a hard time coming up with 28 ideas (my 28th is in March), so I imagine this was tough. Can’t wait to read about all these accomplishments!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Start your list now! It took me FOREVER to make my list. LOL

  4. Jill

    Happy Birthday Month! I am older than you- and while I like this idea… I am not sure I can come up with that many goals. πŸ™‚

    I have never been snowshoeing!!! (hint hint) πŸ™‚

  5. Deb

    Happy almost Birthday! I set a short list of goals for myself at the start of the year (my birthday is in 9 days), but I don’t look forward to my birthday. To me its a reminder of what I haven’t done and I always get super depressed around it. I just try to skip past the whole thing if possible.

    Can I hijack your comments here for a second please? If not, just delete my comment.

    My good friend was the victim of a violent crime and has no health insurance. Could you please spread the word for the cause? We’re trying to raise money to put a dent in his medical bills. You can see more about what happened and photos here on my blog:

    If you can’t repost the information, and you use Stumble Upon, could you at least thumbs up the post and share it with your friends? Thank you so much! I would really appreciate it!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Nah, I won’t delete it Deb. I hope your friend gets the help he needs!

    what a wonderful idea – and such a great range of goals!!
    and Happy Birthday month!!!

    I love that this list is SO FULL OF LIFE πŸ™‚ Makes me smile πŸ™‚

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I like that! “So full of life”! I want to get the most out of my life. I spent too much of it on my couch!

  8. sugarmagnolia70

    Great list….but there is one thing missing. Where is “do a triathlon”? Hmmm?

    1. Lisa Eirene

      YOU GOT ME! I am so nervous about trying one!

      1. sugarmagnolia70

        If anyone can do one, YOU can! Just “tri” it! I have faith in you, Lisa!

        1. Lisa Eirene

          Thanks, sweetie! I have so much admiration for what you do! I do need to just suck it up and tri!

    What a great idea. My 30th is coming up in May, so I think I’m going to make a 30 for 30 list. Happy birthday!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      You should definitely do it! I had such a fun time making the list.

  10. Tiffany

    Such a great list! Especially 7, 8, 10, 14, 16, 20, 21, 26, 29, 30 which I am totally willing to help with. πŸ™‚


    Glad the rain let up for you today a little bit! πŸ™‚

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I would love some help, Tiffany! I will keep you in mind. I definitely want to do a book club. I love the idea of a social aspect to reading.

  11. Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning

    I love your list! I echo so many of these things (esp. 4, 6, 9 and 18!)! And, happy 32nd, by the way!
    I am turning 32 next month and am making either a “32 while 32″ or 33 before 33” list for mine.
    I was out in Oregon last summer during my honeymoon and just fell in love with so many wineries out there. My favorite is the Pines, in the Dalles, OR. We also spent a day in the Willamette Valley visiting a bunch of vineyards, which was one of the best days of our 2 week trip! The Pac NW is soooo beautiful!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      You should definitely do a list! It was fun to make and try to think of things I wanted to do.

      The PNW is very beautiful. I’ve lived in Washington and Oregon my whole life. I love the trees and mountains. I just wish the weather was a little better. If you ever make it back out here, check out the wineries in Hood River. I think they are even better than the ones in the Valley.

    Come down here and do one of our centuries!! Fun fun! And Eat a Beast? WTH? LOL!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Beast is a fancy restaurant here. The chef was on Top Chef Masters!
