National High Five Day!

national high five day

Today is National High Five Day.  Don’t believe me? Check here and here.

I am giving myself a HUGE high five. I think I deserve one just for starting this blog, but I have also managed to:

– Write / post almost every day since I started nine days ago

– On 4.8.15 I challenged myself to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. I am proud to say I have accomplished this every day since then!

– On 4.13.15 I challenged myself to declutter one corner at a time. I accomplished my first corner with progress on a second one!

– On 4.15.15 I challenged myself to keep track of what I am eating. Yesterday was a success and I am off to a good start today!

I have many, many more challenges planned for myself!

In response to the Daily Prompt: Take That, Rosetta!

I wish I could wake up tomorrow and be fluent in Spanish. In NY I am surrounded by Spanish speaking individuals…how great would it be to speak with them in their native language. Then I would take my new skills on the road traveling far and wide. I have travelled to Mexico often and Spain is on the top of my ‘hope to get to soon’ destinations!

One of my future challenges will be to learn basic, conversational Spanish. I was not very successful in high school Spanish (which was a life time ago). I have tried a few apps along the way, but my enthusiasm wears out pretty quickly.

BTW… In 2015, National High Five Day is partnering with Action for Healthy Kids, a charity that fights childhood obesity and promotes fitness. NHFD will be raising money and awareness to help join the fight against childhood obesity. You can join me in donating to the cause here: donate

What have you done to deserve a high five? Who do you know that deserves a high five?
