Birthday Bucket List Link Up – 33 Before 33

You all seemed to be very grateful for the prompts in 30 Ideas for Blog Posts When Your Mind Draws a Blank & the Accountability partner in Know Your Personnel: The Right Mix of Blog Friends & Real Friends was pretty popular as well.  This all got me to thinking that maybe I should turn this post into a link up!

Great prompt that can help hold us all accountable!  It’s something about writing something down and sharing that increases your success rate drastically!


Birthday Bucket List - Rx Fitness Lady

When Hope posted her 40 Before 40 list, it occurred to me that this would be the first time I could share some of my annual goals by way of Rx Fitness Lady.  After expressing my fear of completely opening up, she replied to my comment encouraging me to just share what I wanted to share…very simple.  Thanks Hope!


Anywho, every year for my birthday, I assess my goals.  It is the best feeling to check off goals, see progress, & enhance your social life.  I had a chance to make a new list after my birthday last month and I would like to share the process and “Joi” that comes with accomplishing goals and task with the PFL community!


If you have a bucket list of any sort already posted, please link it up.  If you want to join in (doesn’t matter when your birthday is), draft a post and link it up!

    • Well the list can be for next year! I always have some things that are standing and stay on the list til next year. If you do one, I hope you’ll share it here.

  1. I love all of these! Especially the bi weekly family meetup. I need to do that, I am so lazy LOL. I will be participating in NaBloPoMo for the second year in a row. It was brutal, it was tough, but it unlocked my writing. I was so in my head about what to put on the blog and being forced to write everyday for 30 days helped me write much more freely. Besides the prompts are fun too. I like the creating an ecourse goal…I’ll take your class! 🙂
    Nellie recently posted…Home Preparedness Seminar With The Home DepotMy Profile

    • Thanks Nellie! I will be doing the remix: my own prompts (maybe a few of the Blogher ones) and pre-scheduled. There’s no way I can write on the weekends all month. Glad to know I’ll be in good company.

  2. I was reading your post and thinking, “Wow I should do this!” and then I saw that you tagged me…so obviously, I will do it now. 🙂 I have a long lost 30 before 30 list, but I feel like I need to do a 27 before 27 OR completely refresh my list. I think I will plan to post this on Friday.

    I love #4 by the way… I work full time helping students/alumni get internships/full time work, ect and I don’t even think to hire someone for myself!
    Kimberly {Manifest Yourself} recently posted…CNB: Ginger Salmon PastaMy Profile

    • I’ll be looking forward to it.

      I didn’t realize it until actually starting my blog, but there is VALUABLE information for a student to learn in this space.

  3. Love being tagged! I suppose mine will be 34 things before I turn 34, since I turned 33 five days ago. It’s kinda nice over here – I have no doubt you will complete your list and then some. I’ll start thinking about mine!
    Tamara recently posted…The Memory Keepers.My Profile

  4. Your number 16 is very similar to something I wrote over the weekend and will have up on Friday. Funny how that happens!

    My hubs is pushing me to write an e-book. He says I’m ready. Jason is also my accountability partner. Sometimes that’s good and sometimes bad.

    Thanks for the tag, I’ll be thinking about my list. I have stuff in my head, just not written down. 🙂
    Carli recently posted…F.I.T. Interview: Kristin Empowers Her Kids to Get MovingMy Profile

    • THat has been on my list and my Mother keeps asking me for that regular dinner. I must get on that ASAP. I can’t wait to read your post. It’s super funny how that happens.

    • I agree! An e-book doesn’t come with lots of the hassle of printing. You are so young and motivated! I love it!

  5. Love that list girl! At the rate you’re going, you’ll definitely accomplish them ALL! I have so much I still want to do…the one thing I want to do now is write a book or e-book compiled of my “Michell’s Weekly Pearls” series. I think I’ll at least get 6 months to a year’s worth under my belt though, before writing it. My accountability partner has got to be my daughter Keri. She has MADE herself my personal assistant…she doesn’t let me slack up at all, she’s tough! Lol! Thanks so much for sharing Joi…have a lovely week my friend!! 🙂

  6. Joi, I think I might have to steal this idea. I will probably wait until after my birthday since it is in September and I can’t get 44 things in between now and then. This would be a fun kick-off for my 2nd year of blogging!!
    And, no, so far I haven’t taken a vacation from blogging – part of my goal for this year was a daily post – just over 40 days/posts to accomplish that goal!!
    Kim recently posted…Last Day in ParadiseMy Profile

    • You are going to make it! That is a HUGE commitment and you have tackled it well! Congrats on that and all the best with your other desires!

  7. I did something similar. I’ll have to link up tomorrow. You have great goals for this upcoming year. #26 would be one that I’d like to see come to fruition. I think meeting up with fellow bloggers would be so fun.
    And I may add a biweekly family meet up as well. Since having had Eliana it is harder for me to get around to spending much time with my parents and siblings but I need to make it a priority.
    veronica recently posted…Trying On Clothes Is Much More Fun NowMy Profile

    • I am planning on a meet up. I would really like to just kick back and have a good time with some of you gals 🙂

  8. So happy you decided to share your list. I’m sure you are inspiring so many people do write it down and live it out. Right now, my hubs, by default, is my accountability partner and he’s pretty lenient. I wish I had someone to hold me more accountable. I’m usually the one holding people accountable (Although I have an excellent accountability running partner).

    I’ve never taken a complete blog vacation since I started blogging. I think it’s overdue.

    I love your list…especially your blog and fitness goals. I had an annual 6 flags over GA pass every year I lived in Atlanta. Loved it! Now I have Busch Gardens Passes. lol

    Looking forward to celebrating with you as you accomplish all of your goals.
    Hope recently posted…Good times with a great friend (A getaway)My Profile

    • Thanks Hope! Isn’t it funny how we were mentioning each other 🙂 We could really hang girl with these amusement parks!

  9. Love this list! You are seriously a motivated, inspirational girl! I love that your list targets all areas of your life: fitness, social, family, fun, travel – all things that contribute to a great life! I’m sure you will accomplish them all and I look forward to reading all about your successes!

  10. Number one would be awesome.
    2. I have done it for the past 2 years but this year I don’t think I will join
    18. I didn’t know you were into photography get me that info I may take some classes myself
    25. Let me know if you start one I use to play bball I may get back into it soon for exercise purposes

    • I’ll let you know about the basketball the photo class was from the NewYork Institute of Photography. It’s a childhood hobby I wanted to do a bit more with.

  11. I’m seeing this post late, my friend. My mother came for an overnight visit this evening, so I’ve been cleaning the house ALL DAY! She’s the Martha Stewart in my life, so I had to make sure my space was on point.

    I welcome any opportunity to assess goals and reinvent myself. My husband is my accountability partner because I have been with him more than half my life. He keeps it 100% with me always. I wish sometimes he would censor that mouth, but he doesn’t. But that’s why I strive for more. I have yet to take a true vacation from my blog, but I’d like to when I can afford to do so.

    Let me get my bucket list together so I can link up. And thank you for explaining NaBloPoMo! I have been seeing it all over Blogland recently and thinking “What is that?!” Right on time for me, girl, because I have also been seeking an August challenge. Appreciate you, Joi!
    Kimberly H. Smith recently posted…Bon Appétit!: Cookware From Prep To Table (15% Discount Code)My Profile

    • Thanks for linking up (in the future) Kim, you are the best! You and the hubs have been together for a minute huh!!! That is such a blessing and very inspiring. Thanks for sharing that!

  12. I enjoyed reading through your list, Joi! I love how committed you are to fitness and family. I wish my cousins lived closer, I would love to have a get together with all of them. A blog meet up sounds like a lot of fun. There are so many of us in the Atlanta area.
    Brandi recently posted…Dresser Top TrayMy Profile

  13. I love this idea I will have to make time to link up!!! I’m so in for a blog meet up. I think it will be Great to meet some of the people we talk/type regularly…. now let me get to working on this post!!!!
    Toya recently posted…Missing- an original poemMy Profile

  14. Hi Joi, nice list I hope you get to achieve all these in the next year, I have a mental bucket list of things I’d like to achieve before I leave this earth (some similar to yours), might be nice to put it down on paper one day and tick them off as they happen.
    Gillian recently posted…Are You Drinking Your SugarMy Profile

    • Hello Gillian! Good to hear from you my friend! Why not now??:) You should draft a post and link up! I’d love to see what we have in common!

    • Ha, that is a pretty long list, but I could do it…breaking these goals down into small task. You can pick a more reasonable number. Would love of you linked up my fellow DYWW friend:)

    • Lol, that will be the hardest one! I’m determined 🙂 Thank you reading. I didn’t realize we were right there together. That’s awesome! Looking forward to reading your list my friend!

  15. I just turned 43 and I don’t have a list! I take things as they come, be it interactions, events, ideas…I try not to plan or make lists because then my mind tells me I cannot deviate from that list (it’s how my mind works).

    Also, I can’t take a vaca from my blog because before I am anything else, I am a writer. For me, that is my passion and if I don’t write, “things” get stuck inside my head. My blog is my vehicle to get stuff out that I normally wouldn’t talk about.

    You go, Girl!
    Cheryl recently posted…I Committed Bloggery: Soaking Salts from Owens AcresMy Profile

    • Very interesting Cheryl and thank you for that perspective! I’m sure there are others who share that mindset.

      I understand about your passion. Honestly, I didn’t mean from writing. I meant from the work that comes with scheduled posts; responding to comments, social media posting & interaction, reading and commenting on other blogs, ya know…it’s actually the prefect time to catch up on some writings and get some posts drafted.

  16. Wow! This list has me thinking. There is so much that I want to do. I know that I must write the vision, make it plan and go for it. This is such a thoughtful post.

  17. I love numbers 15 and 16. I do make New Years Resolutions. I believe you will do all of those things. I want to add one more thing to your list . Can you guess what it is?

  18. What an EXCITING bucket list! You are gonna be very busy. There are several that I could add to my list, though I have never done a list but I have thought about it. See that you have been very busy over here. Love the changes that you have made. I am gonna have to browse around to all that I missed.
