31 day challenge

Daily Goals

  1. Run every day. Every day! Today it was hot and steamy.  I had to turn on the air, which has actually improved my breathing.  So, I ran, barefoot, around the block, pulling my dogs.  Hey – I still ran!
  2. Drink at least a gallon of water every day. (Plain ice tea counts!) Today I drank 128 ounces and not a bit more!  Back to a gallon.
  3. Do a 3o day +1 Bikram yoga challenge. Today I went to the 9:00 am class.
  4. Reduce my sugar intake. I did not have any ice cream.  But I wanted some!  I am just too lazy to go get some. 😉
  5. Do something new every day, even if it’s just a twist on something I usually do. Today I made a grilled vegetable quinoa salad without corn.  That’s kind of a big deal!
  6. Every day record something in my life in which I am grateful. I did this, and put it in my jar. I will read these at the end of the month.
  7. Eat 5 times a day. Good food, not junk! (ice cream is acceptable, only because it’s summer!) I ate 5 times today.
  8. Absolutely no more gluten! Or other things I am allergic to. No gluten, no other allergens.
  9. Take one picture a day – that defines my day. Post on Instagram: jackjosephsmom. Posted!
  10. Hold a plank for a minimum of one minute a day. Completed!
  11. Do at least 50 squats a day (preferably 100). Today I did 100, to make up for the 50 I forgot to do yesterday!
  12. Do at least 10 burpees a day (preferably more). I did 40.
  13. Do ten pushups a day. I did 20.
  14. Do 20 Kettlebell swings a day. I did 40.
  15. Reconnect with an old friend each day. Texted MC.
  16. Join the Pay it Forward Movement and participate daily. (There’s an app for that!) Today’s PIF deed of the day is to pull a plant from your Garden and give it to someone to make them happy.  I thought about pulling one for me, but I like looking them in my garden.  But today, a nineteen month old little girl at the pool pulled one from a pot in the pool area – it made her happy.  I think that counts.
  17. Be happy everyday; all day if possible. I was very happy all day.
  18. Smile at everyone I see. (Part of the whole “fake it until you make it” philosophy). Completed! Chatted with a few people at the pool, too.  Introduced myself to a neighbor.


Weekly Goal Accomplished: Today I went to the pool!
