  8. Do this 30 day squat challenge (it includes rest days!) Completed day #8! 50 squats!
  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 drank  only about 50 ounces of water.
  12. Eat 5x a day. I only ate 3x today, but lunch should probably count as 3 meals!
  13. Do the Pay it Forward App 5x a week. Today’s PIF challenge of the day was to honestly compliment someone in need.  I complimented a commenter on my blog with sincere appreciation for all that she does for her brother.
  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.
  18. Discover a new blog/blogger every day. Today I searched for dogs and discovered Dante.  I am a huge fan of Finn & Charley Too which is written from the perspective of the dogs, and so is Dante.  I find these blogs very interesting because our pups have quite the personalities and it’s amazing to find that others imaging their pups talking, too, and what they would say!
  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.) Same problem today with the video I rented!  I need to request a refund!
  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 didn’t do this today. 😦  Again.  I’ll have to catch up one of these days.
  23. Make a serious effort not to complain at all, every day. I didn’t really complain 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 to go on a road trip where I travel to a bunch of different baseball parks and watch some games.
  25. Write a children’s book.
  26. Continue learning Astronomy.
  27. Continue learning Sign Language – one new sign a day! Today I learned plane.
  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!
