I almost threw in the towel on my weekly challenges because one of them seems to be proving to be too difficult. Because I was failing at one then I was a failure at all.
How ridiculous! Thank goodness I realized what was happening and have put my foot down!
On 4/27, I planned to start checking things off my To Do list. My To Do list is too long, but for right now I am going to have to accept that fact. Every time I check something off, something new gets added.
It is just where I am in my life right now, and that is ok. I plan to keep an eye on my To Do list, but if it does not diminish at the rate I hoped I will not beat myself over about it.
Too much pressure.
So, to relieve the pressure this week’s challenge will be to meditate for 5 minutes every day. I have a couple of resources, but would love to hear recommendations that are either free or inexpensive. Please share in the comments!
Update on previous weekly challenges:
On 4/27, I had 218 items on my To Do list and my challenge was to decrease that number. On 5/4 I was horrified to realize my To Do list grew to 222 items. I am happy to report I am down to 200 items on the list. Slow progress, but that is okay!
On 4/20/15, I vowed to become more active. My goal was to earn 3 Activity Points every single day, unfortunately this week I had one inactive day – but I did earn 1 point that day. The rest of the week was stellar, earning between 4 and 7 points each day for a total of 30 APs! This week’s goal is earn a minimum of 4 APs per day, every day.
On 4/15/15, I challenged myself to track (food journal) everything I ate. I have tracked every day since…even when I had a steak dinner with a couple of scoops of dessert and a 55 point Mother’s Day brunch buffet!
On 4/13/15, I challenged myself to declutter one corner at a time. Two corners and 4 draws are complete. Four other draws have been started. And, we opened our summer weekend rental and managed to find a place for everything, so I am making sure we start with no clutter there!
On 4/8/15, I challenged myself to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day. I seem to be finding full success on an average of 5 days per week, and the other two days are just slightly less. I find the days I am in the car most are the most problematic. I am going to continue to work at this!
PSA of the Day (again)… Stick to your goals!
