40 Things Update – Books, Charity and Lard.
Posted on Nov 23, 2009 in 40 Things

A little update on three of my 40 things to do before I’m 40.

  • Raise 1000 pounds for charity – (00.5% Complete)
  • I’m now not able to do the charity Abseil  in December, but you can sponsor Noscene instead. I shall be doing something in the early new year.

  • Read all of the BBC Top 100 reads – (10% Complete)
  • Finish reading His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, really excellent books (there are three of them, which is kind of cheat as they only count as one of the 100 top reads) best thing I’ve read in a long while. I’m now reading John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men.

  • Have 15% or less body fat – (0% Complete)
  • Ten percent was a really over optimistic goal (unless I want to become an Olympic athlete) so I’ve changed this goal to the more realistic but still overly demanding fifteen percent.  The Body Fat Monitor has a new battery and it estimates I’m at 26.1% so I’ve decided to measure the percentage complete updates as 25% being 0% to 15% being 100% complete.

I’m now 2.19% complete with 2082 days to go.

Leave some feedback.
