august 31 day challenge


^^ I am working on it!! 🙂

  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!) Completed day #5!
  3. Do this ab workout 2x a week: http://youtu.be/vkKCVCZe474 Completed!  Love this one!
  4. Do this ab workout 3x a week: http://www.hulu.com/watch/209638 Completed!
  5. Go to yoga 4x a week (focus on spine strengthening series!) I went to the 1 pm class.
  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. Did some backbends today.
  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. I tried these stretches: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/5-yoga-poses-that-increase-hip-flexibility.html; http://dance.about.com/od/stretchingflexibility/ss/Splits-Stretches_5.htm 
  8. Do this 30 day squat challenge (it includes rest days!) Completed day #5! It was easy – it was a 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! Legs on Fire! http://pinterest.com/pin/93660867223863009/ I didn’t get to it today, but I will be doing it tomorrow!
  10. Take one full day a week as a rest day from physical activity (except for walking the dogs – which I do every day). I did this Friday.
  11. Drink at least 100 oz of water a day. I did. Yay!
  12. Eat 5x a day. I did. Yay!
  13. Do the Pay it Forward App 5x a week. Today’s PIF challenge of the day was to write a letter to someone who made a positive impact on your life. I wrote a letter to an old Vice President of mine, truly an inspirational person who is still today my friend and shows why he deserves his now President title.
  14. Post one picture a day on Instagram following this 30 day photo challenge. @jackjosephsmom Completed! 
  15. Host 2 dinner parties this month.
  16. Read at least 2 books this month (besides business reading).
  17. Compliment someone every day. In person. I told IEK I like her classes because she is funny.
  18. Discover a new blog/blogger every day. Still obsessed with Bikram, as it is my own healing rock, I discovered Confessions of a Hawaiian Princess: One Woman’s Journey to Greater Health through a post documenting her discovery of herself during her first 90 days of Bikram Yoga. She is on a path to greater health and wellness – as we all should be!  She has an amazing post documenting herself in photos doing all 26 postures of Bikram yoga.  Wow!  So brave and amazing.  This lady is someone to inspire everyone to get up and do something positive in their lives.  She has earned a new dedicated follower in me.
  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 R.
  23. Make a serious effort not to complain at all, every day. I am pretty sure I didn’t. 
  24. Create a new bucket list: each day write down something I want, want to do, or place I want to go. I want to attend one of these Bikram Yoga Retreats in the future.  Currently none of the dates work because of my surgery and the 2014 dates conflict with work travel for conventions and conferences I host.  But I will keep checking and I will go to one!
  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!)
  30. Clean all the fans.
  31. Take a picture of my abs again on the 31st!  Hopefully see some change!

  1. So, I am a sucker for watching the same movies over and over and over. Lately Pitch Perfect has been on…It is pretty funny and I found myself singing along to all the songs. Worth the watch.

cheer me along!
