Bucket List

I have been seeing a lot of blog posts lately containing people's bucket list's ( a list of things to do before you kick the bucket a.k.a die...)  So it got me thinking... what do I want to accomplish, or do before I die? I don't have a sense, or inkling when I am going to die, but I suppose I might as well get started on a list now. So here it goes.

1. Be self confident

2. Finish my Certification process in becoming a personal trainer.

3. Find a job as a personal trainer, and actually be good at it.

4. Stop having to mooch off others, and be more independent.

5. Play some sort of role in educating people/kids about organics, fitness, and nutrition.

6. Refine my writing skills and write for a fitness magazine of some sort.

7. Write a book

8. Learn to cook healthy meals that taste *great*.

9. Run a marathon

10. Complete a triathlon

11. Have a family, and be a good Mom.

12. Be Happy

This list could contain so much more, but I think I will keep it down to 12 for now. It seems I have written more of a "what I hope to accomplish in 10 years" list rather than what I would like to accomplish before I die ( assuming I will live to reach my senior years ).

What are some of the things you want to do before you die?


  1. Sounds good to me. I feel sometimes that bucket lists are important for goals, but it's also a reminder that we are not in control, God is and He sees the whole picture. In a positive note, make sure that He's part of that bucket list and He will guide you in your goals.

  2. Great list! A long time ago I wrote a list of ALL the things I wanted to do...I wish I knew right where it was b/c it would be fun to see what I have done and what I still want to do! I should start a new one!

  3. This is a great list.
    It sounds like you wanna help a lot of people and that's awesome.
    You can come cook me some healthy meals, i've been slacking on that font lately.

    I want to go bungee jumping or jump from a plane or something.
    I'd also like to write a book.

  4. I like this bucket list as a now present one. As you get older you will need a bigger bucket for your list, and will be adding a lot more stuff. Human nature I guess. Good positive stuff!

  5. I hope to some day to be able to be a part of making some of these come true, or getting to celebrate them with you. I also think you should add #13 Visit your brother in VA :)
    I love you sis
