November Challenge - 2018 - Beck
Oh man this was too much. I thought it would be simple when I wrote it but Math. Math people! What in the world was I thinking? Let's just jump into it shall we?
Wash my face twice a day. I still have this locked down. 7/7
Brush my teeth twice a day. Still locked down. 7/7
Brush my hair every day. Got it. 7/7
3 meals a day within the calorie intake I want. So work is a problem with food. 7/7.
Say something nice to myself once a day. I did this. Good job! 7/7
Treat others the way you want to be treated always. 7 out of 7 days as written good week.
Do something that makes me smile at least once a day. I'm gonna keep this one. I love it. 7/7
Do the dishes after every meal. Almost 6/7.
Laundry... washing, drying, folding and putting away. Washing, drying and throwing into a basket is not enough. Yup, done. 7/7
Clean kitchen daily.... Yup, 7/7
Clean one room per day. See ya goal, I'm so done with you. 5/7
Mow the lawn every two weeks. I went out and checked it.. nope it's still good.
House should be clean by Sunday every single week. Yup. Done. 1/1
Take Ciara to school EVERY day that I don't have to work at 6am. Take her home from school any day I get off before 1pm. She was out of school this week so this can't be counted.
Make breakfast every morning.
Make dinner every night. Out eating needs to be special occasions or rewards only. Ummm… nope. We didn't eat a second time on Thursday. But the rest of the time. Did it. 6/7
Hug the dragon at least once a day. Even when she's not wanting to be bothered. Make her interact with humanity one time a day for a few moments. She still hates this... but I'm still doing it. 7/7
Visit my mom only 3 days. It is not your responsibility to "do" for her yet. Give her only three days. This week she got 3 days. Thursday it was a full family day so that doesn't count. 3/3
Drag sister to the gym once a week for as long as she's willing to do so. Her goals have to be set by herself and not you. I did call her and ask her if she wanted to go with me. Each time she said no. She's grown so... that's her bad. This goal is being removed. She has proven she's not interested.
Play with my doggy. Play can be cuddle when he's not wanting to play. 7/7
1. Schedule a time to hang out with Ki in person. Then DO IT. WE DID IT! I Did this on November 9th so this is a non goal now.
2. Go to a museum, an SCA event, or state park at least once in the month. Ki and I went to a Monkey Preserve and an abandoned cemetery. This is now a non goal now.
3. Spend adult time with other humans. Could be my sister and her husband. anyone... just adult time. I hung out with all of my siblings except for one on Thanksgiving. They are hilarious people! Did it, can't add points for it.
This is simple.
1. Create one thing a month and post it on MDC.(that's a crafty group on Facebook). I posted it November 30th. Boom Baby! DONE!
2. Research garb for SCA events that I won't hate. I have found that I really like Bedouin and Turkish. I'm looking at fabrics that I can't afford.
1. 5 - 10 minute HIIT workout before work daily. 5/7
2. 10 -20 minute HIIT workout after work daily. 6/7
3. 10 - 30 minute HIIT workout after dinner daily. 6/7
4. Go to the Gym at least twice a week. I got there once.
5. Go for a walk outside in fresh air at least once a week. 1/1
6. Drink 10 8 ounce glasses of water a day. 7/7
7. Stay under 2,000 calories a day. YAY! 7/7
And a BIG GIANT EXTRA goal that I really want to happen so it's getting it's own category...
Weight Under 200 lbs by December 1st. It is Saturday, December 1st as I am typing. So I was 212 lbs at the beginning of this challenge. Where am I at now?
This month has been maximum effort to get that weight to where it is. I will continue to work hard. I'm not done yet. I still have so much more to accomplish.
For now I'm going to call this challenge a success. I succeeded in teaching myself some new habits. No way I'm going to sit here and add up all of these numbers for too many weeks. It's time to move onto the next challenge!
Until next time, be nice to yourself and others.
