  1. Take a picture of my abs on day #1 Posted to Instagram on 8/1/13.

  3. Do this ab workout 2x a week: http://youtu.be/vkKCVCZe474  I only did this once this week.  I will tack on an extra time to next week.
  4. Do this ab workout 3x a week (NEW VIDEO 8/8): http://youtu.be/08Bi8hMdwa4 I did this today, but I am still short one this week.  I will tack on another for next week.
  5. Go to yoga 4x a week (focus on spine strengthening series!) I went 4x this week.
  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. I did some stretched while working today.
  8. Do this 30 day squat challenge (it includes rest days!) Today I completed through day #21! 145 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! I did this Sunday.
  10. Take one full day a week as a rest day from physical activity (except for walking the dogs – which I do every day). Kind of last Thursday & kind of yesterday.
  11. Drink at least 100 oz of water a day. I drank over 100 ounces of water & tea 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 was to sit and talk with a homeless person and learn their story.  J told me a story that could fall under this category.
  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; I did this today!
  16. Read at least 2 books this month (besides business reading). I read The Litigators and a Batman book this month.
  17. Compliment someone every day. In person. I complimented
  18. Discover a new blog/blogger every day. I searched “recycling” and found Reclaimed Mama!  I am interested to see all the different thoughts and ideas she has to reduce, reuse & recycle! 😉
  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). 
  23. Make a serious effort not to complain at all, every day. I may have complained a little bit to J tonight when she was over – hey! It was girl talk!
  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 compost.  I am a self-proclaimed Green Goddess and recycle way more than I ever throw out.  The recycling over piles in the garage; on trash night I try to throw my bag into someone else’s trash can to avoid rolling mine out and having to put it back.  Haha.  Just kidding.  I only actually did that once.  I need to find a way to do it here, year round.
  25. Write a children’s book.
  26. Continue learning Astronomy.
  27. Continue learning Sign Language – one new sign a day! Today I learned skiing.
  28. Clean all the blinds.
  29. Vacuum 2x a week. (allergy season will be back!) I did this today. 2nd time this week.
  30. Clean all the fans. 3 down, 2 or so to go
  31. Take a picture of my abs again on the 31st! Hopefully see some change!
