Well I realize I am a tad behind on posting the blog about my March challenge it has been quite the week. Everything, except for the kids, at work sucks right now and I'm feeling very unmotivated, so I apologize for not posting this earlier.
First of all, I should probably sum up my February challenge. My challenge for February was to drink 8 glasses of water every single day for the entire month, and I am happy to announce that I DID IT!
There were a few days that were challenging. Mostly during the weekends, but overall, I just made it happen and I love the feeling of accomplishment at the end of each day when I check that box for my water! This was just the kick in the pants I needed to get my water intake back up to where it needed to be!
Now on to my March goal, I decided that I needed to do a goal that was not just for my physical health, but also for my mental health. I haven't been reading as much as I want to, so I decided that I would set a goal to read at least 15 minutes 5 days out of a week. Shouldn't be too difficult right? HA! So far this has been my most challenging start to a goal. I'm almost at a week and I've only read twice. I'm behind already and feeling frustrated. I kept saying to myself, this is stupid, why are you doing this, and then it occured to me that I'm not doing the monthly challenges so that I can make myself miserable, I'm doing them to improve my life. So why not take control and change the expectations. It's my goal and I'll change it if I want to!
So the changes as of today are to keep the same standards but instead of 5/7 days per week I'm going to say 20/31 days. This I am still reading the same amount of days, but now if I don't get 5 in one week I can make it up the next week. No I just have to kick my own butt and sit down with a book and read!
Wish me luck! Pride and Prejudice here I come!
