New Challenge & New Goals
Challenge is done. It's over. I'm looking forward to starting the next set of challenges.
Next month I'm going to continue to work on my inside as well as my weight. It feels good to make positive changes for myself.
I start a new job on April 1st. Good things come to those who work for them.
It's time to get back to working on me. I'm important.
March Challenge - 2019 - Week 4
Week 4 Measurements
- Thigh: 21"
Day 24 - Sunday
I was off work today. My steps are so low when I don't work. I think next month that's going to be a personal goal. Keep the steps up on days off. I did my work out this morning and spent the rest of the day chilling and napping.
Day 25 - Monday
Today was a work day. I hope to be employed elsewhere soon. My patience with the nonsense of my current job is making me slightly cranky. I got a call from the place that I interviewed with. They'll be calling me again on Wednesday. Fingers crossed for that.
On another note, I was contacted by someone that I used to be in a relationship with. He had seen my pictures on Facebook and decided it would be a great time to reconnect. He still cares for me he says.... what that really means is I'm looking good to him. Two years ago that might have meant something.
Part of this journey has been getting my mind right. Understanding my worth. It's not just about what I look like. It's how I feel about myself as well. I let him know that. My self esteem might not be at a 100% but I'm feeling myself. That's translating into knowing that I'm worth more than a job that drastically under pays me. It translates into knowing that I'm worth more than getting back into a self destructive relationship.
Of course I'm still working on me. It's a journey. It isn't easy. I'm on this journey for myself. Not for any other person. I'm going to keep moving forward. I'm moving forward for ME. It feels good. I did my workout twice today.
Day 26 - Tuesday
Long work day. Particularly a stressful one. I didn't sleep much last night. My brain was a bit racked with stress. Worried about the potential job calling and missing another call from them because I'm at a job I don't want to be in. I'm trying to rehab an old loan. My past relationships peeking in and destroying peace. The outside worries of my world.
I was really cranky today. I didn't do my workout. I'd love to say it just slipped my mind, that's not true. I just chose not to do it. I have important paper work I have to get faxed by 4pm tomorrow so I chose to rush to Walmart at 11pm for a printer to help ease some stress for my Wednesday but forgot the printer cable and didn't sleep well again.
Day 27 - Wednesday
Today I met seniority at my current job. It's been exactly one year since I started there. Today was supposed to be a long day at work. but feeling the stress of the paper work deadline I left work two hours early. I got my paperwork faxed on time. Other stressors were at play. But I did get a call back from the new job. On the very day I began my old one, I got word that I have a new one. Today was a good day. But I did not do my workout again today.
Day 28 - Thursday
Today was a very mellow day. I went threw it aware that my time was limited at work. It was a great day. I did my workout with no problem.
Day 29 - Friday
I worked at my current job for a little longer than usual. Went and did some paper work for the new job. Cleaned my sister's house. Came home, quickly did the work out and relaxed.
Day 30 - Saturday
Today is Saturday. Usually a day off and errand day. I had to go to my old job for a two hour meeting. I did that. It was my final act as an employee there. Thanks for the memories. Time to move on. I then ran errands with my mom and came home. It's day 30 of this challenge. We're done. I haven't been as successful as I have been in the past. But that's okay. I think I have done well. I don't have to be perfect.
Progress on My Goals
My goal this month was to get back on track. I'm not sure I accomplished that goal. I think that what I've done is make a dent in getting back into the swing of things. That's great. It's a step up and step forward.
I'm still not on my diet fully. I could make a hundred excuses of why I'm not doing what I know I need to do. The fact is this, it's my fault I'm off my diet and I just haven't wanted to make the sacrifices to get back on it yet. That's my choice. It's not a good one, but it is my choice. Now I need to choose to do better next month.
The baseline week of tasks was worth 8 points, I earned 7. The first week of tasks was worth 26 points, I earned 25. So I had 32 points going into week 2 and 57 points going into week 3. I had 103 points going into this final week.
This week, there were 35 tasks worth one point each.
Measuring my thigh each week is worth 1 point.
Posting my stats on time (by 6pm Sunday) is also worth 1 point.
Therefore, this week there are 37 points available. I missed the challenge tasks two days this week which was worth 10 points.
Points Earned: 27
Total Challenge Points: 130
