31 day challenge

Daily Goals

  1. Run every day. Every day! Today I did not run.  The toe issue… and the heat.  If I can’t run again tomorrow, I am going to rollerblade, provided the heat isn’t too bad.
  2. Drink at least a gallon of water every day. (Plain ice tea counts!) Today I drank about 72 +  ounces of water & tea. Lots of Gatorade today for the electrolytes; so very, very hot out!
  3. Do a 3o day +1 Bikram yoga challenge. Today I went to the 6:00 am class.  The new instructor was awesome!
  4. Reduce my sugar intake. I did not have a lot of sugar today.
  5. Do something new every day, even if it’s just a twist on something I usually do. Instead of putting on a workout outfit, I pulled out a nice tank top I never wear and a nice pair of shorts I never wear, and picked out a different pair of flipflops for my lunch date today.
  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 4 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. Defer until tomorrow. Toe!
  11. Do at least 50 squats a day (preferably 100). Defer until tomorrow. Toe!
  12. Do at least 10 burpees a day (preferably more). Defer until tomorrow. Toe!
  13. Do ten pushups a day. Defer until tomorrow. Toe!
  14. Do 20 Kettlebell swings a day. Defer until tomorrow. Toe!
  15. Reconnect with an old friend each day. Today I sent a few Linked In requests to some old buddies.
  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 hug someone who looks like they need it.  I hugged Harley when he was shaking because he heard the thunder outside.
  17. Be happy everyday; all day if possible. It was a pretty happy day!  I am very tired though.
  18. Smile at everyone I see. (Part of the whole “fake it until you make it” philosophy). Completed! 

All of these exercises that I have had to defer because of my toe… I have plans to make them all up tomorrow or Saturday.  I may have to modify them though – I will keep you updated!
