Because of the virus, I'm spending more time and home, and frankly, I don't exercise enough. I'm getting grumpy more often because of that, which has a negative influence on about everything. On top of that, all my social activities like orchestra rehearsals are canceled, but I haven't replaced that with activities at home that bring me joy. So this month, I'm going to try and find activities that I can enjoy at home. I will even experiment with the number of goals this challenge; usually I have 3-4 goals, now I have a gazillion like the rest of you.
Go outside for a walk or bike-ride daily
Continued from last challenge.
Spend at least 250 minutes per week on biking or walking
There is no ban on going outside in The Netherlands, so this is something I should just do. This is about 35 minutes a day on average, which is still very low for me.
Do yoga every day on work-days
Continued from last challenge. Currently I'm on day 22 of the 30-day morning challenge of "Yoga with Kassandra", I might start it over once I finish it, or find another X-day challenge.
Do one form of other exercise once a week
Can be any kind of youtube workout, or fitness blender, or I don't know what's out there.
Cook one recipe from a cookbook once a week
I have a ton of cookbooks, but I usually get my recipes online. Even though I eat a variety of dinners, I like the added variety and the charm of cookbooks.
Experiment with bigger breakfasts
I recently realised that it is not normal to get light-headed around 10AM every morning, so I want to reduce my snacking and increase breakfast instead. Yesterday's pancakes made me full until lunch (Sunday we usually have special breakfast), but this morning's increased portion of oatmeal didn't do the trick. Maybe I should look at getting more fat into my breakfast.
Clean after dinner for 10-15 minutes every day
Continued from last challenge. It really does a lot in keeping a clean house.
Doodle/draw in my bullet journal once a week
My latest "system" for tracking is my bullet journal, but I don't have a fixed idea of what I want it to look like yet. I do know however, that I've always been terrible at drawing, mostly because I never did it (even as a child I rarely drew). I recognise that I might enjoy it if I could do it though, so I want to try it out a bit this challenge.
Use a metronome when playing the clarinet three times per week
I'm terrible in playing the clarinet when using a metronome to have a consistent tempo, so I need to practice this. It is not fun, but it's essential for my play to improve it, otherwise I'll always have difficulty in playing in a steady tempo.
