31 day challenge august

  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!) Today I completed day #13! 60 sit ups, 75 crunches, 40 leg raises, 50 sec plank!
  3. Do this ab workout 2x a week: http://youtu.be/vkKCVCZe474 I did  this today. 2x this week.
  4. Do this ab workout 3x a week (NEW VIDEO 8/8): http://youtu.be/08Bi8hMdwa4 I did this today.  Great workout!
  5. Go to yoga 4x a week (focus on spine strengthening series!) Today I went to the 9:00 am class.  It was a good, small 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. I keep doing the head over my feet stretch, which yesterday I discovered while searching yoga pictures on instagram found out is called the “Plow”.
  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 did some stretches on my mat prior to yoga, plus I have begun sitting on the floor during the day and I am easily doing quick hip flexing stretches in between my work.
  8. Do this 30 day squat challenge (it includes rest days!) Today I completed through day #13! 75 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! Today I did this workout: http://pinterest.com/pin/184155072236163756/  It was easy, but I could feel 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). Sunday was my rest day this week.
  11. Drink at least 100 oz of water a day. I drank over 100 ounces of water today! 2 days in a row! 
  12. Eat 5x a day. I ate 5x today. Yay!
  13. Do the Pay it Forward App 5x a week. Today’s PIF challenge of the day was to let someone merge in front of you in heavy traffic.  I actually did do that this morning – prior to reading what the PIF of the day was!
  14. Post one picture a day on Instagram following this 30 day photo challenge. @jackjosephsmom Completed!
  15. Host 2 dinner parties this month. 8/11;
  16. Read at least 2 books this month (besides business reading).
  17. Compliment someone every day. In person. I had almost zero interaction with people today.
  18. Discover a new blog/blogger every day. I really want to try Crossfit.  It really interests me… I just haven’t made my way there yet…  I found a real gem today when searching “crossfit”. Kale & Running Shoes not only has some interesting Crossfit Workout of the Days (WOD) but has some awesome vegan recipes!  I can’t wait to try the workouts and the recipes!
  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 haven’t done this in a while.  I need to catch up!
  23. Make a serious effort not to complain at all, every day. I did not 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 white water rafting trip.
  25. Write a children’s book.
  26. Continue learning Astronomy.
  27. Continue learning Sign Language – one new sign a day! Today I learned boat.  I love boats, so this was pretty cool.
  28. Clean all the blinds.
  29. Vacuum 2x a week. (allergy season will be back!) I vacuumed Sunday.
  30. Clean all the fans. 2 down, 3 or so to go!
  31. Take a picture of my abs again on the 31st! Hopefully see some change!
