31 day challenge

  1. Take a picture of my abs on day #1 Posted to Instagram on 8/1/13.
  2. Do this 30 day ab challenge (it includes rest days!) Rest Day!
  3. Do this ab workout 2x a week: http://youtu.be/vkKCVCZe474
  4. Do this ab workout 3x a week: http://www.hulu.com/watch/209638
  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!) Rest Day!
  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. I am gonna be honest.  I drank no water today. 😦
  12. Eat 5x a day. I ate 4x today.
  13. Do the Pay it Forward App 5x a week. Today’s PIF challenge of the day from the app was to volunteer at a nursing home.  I will reach out.
  14. Post one picture a day on Instagram following this 30 day photo challenge. @jackjosephsmom
  15. Host 2 dinner parties this month. I hosted a birthday lunch party for Abbey and had the neighbors and C and her kids over.  This actually completed last month’s dinner/lunch party requirements!
  16. Read at least 2 books this month (besides business reading).
  17. Compliment someone every day. In person. I complemented P on his new haircut.
  18. Discover a new blog/blogger every day. Since today is Abbey’s birthday, I searched wordpress for dog birthdays and found trunchbulldiaries. DD is a wheaton terrier that recently celebrated her first birthday with a hat (Abbey allowed that only on her first birthday as well) and a peanut butter cupcake.  Abbey and Harley get hotdogs.  The writer is a single mother of four that chronicles a whole variety of topics, but I was most interested in today reading about Dirty Dawg.  So far I am impressed with the writer’s humor and style of writing.  Can’t wait to read more!
  19. Follow this 30 day blog challenge. Posted here.
  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. Posted here.
  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). I texted J.
  23. Make a serious effort not to complain at all, every day. I did not really complain at all today. 😉
  24. Create a new bucket list: each day write down something I want, want to do, or place I want to go.  I want a California King Size bed.  However, I am not silly enough to believe that even with all that room the dogs won’t want to snuggle right next to me.
  25. Write a children’s book.
  26. Continue learning Astronomy.
  27. Continue learning Sign Language – one new sign a day!
  28. Clean all the blinds.
  29. Vacuum 2x a week. (allergy season will be back!) I vacuumed today.
  30. Clean all the fans.
  31. Take a picture of my abs again on the 31st!  Hopefully see some change!

cheer me along!
