Resolutions Update:

1. Learn Spanish - OK, lost a little steam on this one this month. I'm still doing it every few days, but not every day like I was.
2.. Read at least 12 books. This month was movie challenge night, which cut pretty seriously into my reading. But at the very last minute, I got Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line and powered through it in two days. Total right now: 5.
3. Spend time with as many of my friends as possible, as much as possible. Well, STAPLE! is about as social as I get, saw a ton of people I don't see a lot of, plus I had some game nights, some lunches and a big 'ol Godfather movie and dinner night.
4. Play at least 12 new board/card games this year. Finally got a chance to play Battlestar Galactica, which I really liked, bringing my total to 3 new games. I'm on track for 12, and I also played some Pathfinder Adventure Card Game and set up a biweekly Tuesday game night that should keep me playing games regularly.

5. Stay under 200 lbs. I'm doing push-ups and sit-ups every day, adding 1 to the number each day, and moving on the elliptical a little more each day as well. I've skipped a few days here and there, and I probably need to be more serious about it. I vary between 195-200 right now. So technically I'm accomplishing it, but I'd sure like to lose about 20-25 lbs.

Where I Ate This Month:

1. Black Star Co-Op
2. Stiles Switch BBQ
3. Tam Deli
4. French Quarter Grille
5. Chuy's
6. Mooney's Burger House
7. Jack Allen's Kitchen
8. Outback Steakhouse (uh... like five times. It's close to work and it's relatively cheap and it's steak.)
9. DiMassi's Mediterranean Buffet
10. Torchy's Tacos
11. Lucy's Fried Chicken
12. Hopdoddy
13. Zorba Greek Restaurant
14. Haymaker
