My update:

1. Get 8,000 steps per day. My stretch goal is 10,000.
I did really well for most of the month, but I've fallen off the last week or so. Part of it is I use my phone to track steps and its dying, so I don't carry it with me as much as I could to get steps.

2. 1000 minutes of exercise this month.
1130 for the month, so emoticon

3. 5 fruits and veggies each day.
Decent effort.At least 4 daily

End of the month, better check in. I have been soley focused, so this might not be so good....

1. Get at least 10,000 steps per day. My usual stretch goal is 13,000, but with the stay at home order I have been getting in at least 20,000. So I am going to try and get in 20,000 per day as my stretch goal, even though the order might end before the end of the month.

I am currently averaging over 30,000 steps per day. A totally unreasonable number :). I kept this up all month. I averaged over 33000 per day and got in over 1,000,000 total. Yes!

2. Do something productive in the yard.
Did some mowing and arranging. We have a lot of yard art, so something is simple.

3. Take the bike out at least once
Nope. Didn't happen. Did help DH fix his bike twice. So maybe with some imagination and squinting we can pretend that almost counts.

4. Accomplish something housey (clean, organize, fix) from the "to do" list
My shelf-bed got moved from the van to the basement for storage since our pacific north west trip is on hold. Since we didn't just jam it in the living room for the month like usual I am going to count this as a win for now :). Gonna count this.

I'm over 2/3 of the way on this with about 2/3 of the month done.

Mid-month check in.

1. Get at least 10,000 steps per day. My usual stretch goal is 13,000, but with the stay at home order I have been getting in at least 20,000. So I am going to try and get in 20,000 per day as my stretch goal, even though the order might end before the end of the month.

I am currently averaging over 30,000 steps per day. A totally unreasonable number :).

2. Do something productive in the yard
There is a plan to do something in the yard, but it has been raining for the past week so nothing has actually been done.

3. Take the bike out at least once
Not yet

4. Accomplish something housey (clean, organize, fix) from the "to do" list
My shelf-bed got moved from the van to the basement for storage since our pacific north west trip is on hold. Since we didn't just jam it in the living room for the month like usual I am going to count this as a win for now :).

I like the monthly challenges too. I find it helps to have someone to hold me accountable, or at least the accountability that I'm going to post results at the end of the month.

GOALS for May

(1) Do the REPORT!!!!!!!! -- I know I need to do this, so I'll make it a goal, even though I keep putting it off.

(2) Average at least 3.5 on daily routine, morning and evening (last month was 2.63 AM and 1.08 PM)

(3) Exercise 5 times a week, even if only for five minutes

(4) Pretend I'm working a half-time job, and do 4 hour productive stuff, five days a week.

Nice goals!

I am glad you like the monthly challenges. I am surprised at how they manage to help me out some months when I am in a slump :D.

Okay for me, I actually haven't thought about this too much but I have some basics.

1. Get at least 10,000 steps per day. My usual stretch goal is 13,000, but with the stay at home order I have been getting in at least 20,000. So I am going to try and get in 20,000 per day as my stretch goal, even though the order might end before the end of the month.

3. Take the bike out at least once

4. Accomplish something housey (clean, organize, fix) from the "to do" list
