challenge: august 2013


Even though I wasn’t 100% successful on my July 2013 Challenge, I am going to do it again.  The challenges will be different based on what I learned, but not so easy that I whip through them.  But certainly more obtainable.

I did achieve what I wanted to with my July Challenge.  I am feeling better.  I am healthier.  I am happier.

I like having things to hold myself accountable for on a daily/weekly/monthly basis.


august 2013 challenge

So here is the challenge list for August 2013!

  1. Take a picture of my abs on day #1.
  2. Do this 30 day ab challenge (it includes rest days!)
  3. Do this ab workout 2x a week:
  4. Do this ab workout 3x a week:
  5. Go to yoga 4x a week (focus on spine strengthening series!)
  6. Work on the flexibility of my shoulders including researching new ways to increase flexibility in my shoulders and stretch them out with various exercises.
  7. Work on the flexibility of my hips including researching new ways to increase flexibility in my hips and stretch them out with various exercises.
  8. Do this 30 day squat challenge (it includes rest days!)
  9. One day a week pick a random work out of the day off of Pinterest or anywhere on the internet and just do it!
  10. Take one full day a week as a rest day from physical activity (except for walking the dogs – which I do every day).
  11. Drink at least 100 oz of water a day.
  12. Eat 5x a day.
  13. Do the Pay it Forward App 5x a week.

  17. Compliment someone every day. In person.
  18. Discover a new blog/blogger every day.
  19. Follow this 30 day blog challenge.
  20. Rent and watch a movie this month (weird, I know, but the TV is always on and I am never watching it.  It’s always on crime shows.  I want me to rent a movie from my TV’s online guide and watch it.  I never watch movies unless I am on a date, and since I have no plans ever to date again, just watching one movie this month will be tough.)
  21. Participate in the 30 day song challenge.
  22. Write a “I Like This About You” note/text/email each day to someone (repeats of the same person but with new reasons is okay! – I have a smaller world now, anyways, and I am okay with that).
  23. Make a serious effort not to complain at all, every day.
  24. Create a new bucket list: each day write down something I want, want to do, or place I want to go.
