Here is an update on my progress for each resolution at the midpoint of the year.

**Read 75 books.**Half is 37.5 and I have read 37. Not far off schedule.**Hit 25,000 pages.**Half is 12,500 and I have read 11,860 which puts me 640 behind, which is about a whole book.**Finish series already started.**24 of the 75 books. 3 of the 6 are done and a good portion of others done.**Earthsea Cycle Read books #4-5.**Still need to read #4-5.**Ender’s Shadow Read book 5.**Done.**The Expanse Read book #2-6, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 2.5, 3.5.**Still need to read #3.5, 4-6.**The Magicians Read books #2-3.**Done.**Millennium Read book 4.**Done.**Robot Read books #0.2-0.6,1-4.**Read #0.2, 1-4.

- Lifting.
**Bench 240 pounds (1RM equivalent).**The most recent is 198. That gives me 42 to go. Upping it by 5 pounds every 3 weeks should work.**Squat 300 pounds (1RM eq).**The most recent is 268. That gives me 32 to go. Upping it by 5 pounds every 4 weeks should work.**Deadlift 335 pounds (1RM eq).**The most recent is 297. That gives me 38 to go. Upping it by 5 pounds every 3 weeks should work.- After getting to these, I will shift to reaching the “essential benchmarks” of bench 1.5x body weight (360 lb), squat 2x body weight (480), deadlift 2.5x body weight (600).

**Drop to 20% body fat.**No progress.**Do the White and Orange trails in under an hour.**It is only a bit over 15 minute improvement. And my feet hurt for a week. Once I’ve dropped the weight, it should be easier to achieve. And it is too hot now, so I will try again in the fall starting in late September.**Attend 12 social events when invited.**I am going to count having a party as 3. And going to a movie with friends as 1/2.
