In the past, NF challenges have been great for me. But the last 2 years, since I had my second child, I have been neglecting myself, and the challenges didn’t work for me. Than lately, I was desperatly trying to regain my previous routines, from when I had only one kid, with no succes and much frustration. Until I realised that my general situation changed, and that probably what worked in the past wouldn’t work anymore. That maybe I had to switch things up completely and figure it out again. Since then, I have been way more relaxed about this, and let the flow of the days guide my goals, with only an “intention of doing x” to guide me. And it’s much better. As usual, for me a new year means a new intention, theme or mantra. 2015 was “be present” and I don’t feel I achieved that at all. I think the word was not the right one. Reflecting back, I actually “drifted” most of the time. For 2016, after a week of self reflextion, thinking, and brainstorming, life gave me the answer : BALANCE. Now is the time to put more focus and intention in my days, to achieve more balance. Time for me, time for my kids, my boyfriend, a little of everything I love, less of things I don’t. With the new guilds, I feel like I should go in the druids the way my goals are, but at the same time, Adventurer is more “me”. I’ll stay in adventurers for now. I guess I consider myslef a curious druid, thisty for adventure and trying new things ! Main goal : Achieve balance by fulling my well first with exercise, clean foods and sleep. To enjoy family life, be more patient, calm, loving and compasionnate. Slow down to enjoy the moment and be mindful. Mind : incorporate the SAVERS mirable morning routine, before everyone else is awake. I aim to do this in about 15-30 minutes each morning. - Silence : 2 min meditation (eventually up to 10 min) - Affirmation “every day, in every way, I am getting better and better” - Visualisation : see myself being calm, patient, in a place of love, mindfull, in control of my emotions during all events of the day, especially in parenting - Exercise : do some spine stretches and twists & tree pose. - Reading : “the life changing magic of tidying up” by Marie Kondo; then apply my learnings. - Script: bullet journal for the day + 3 things to be grateful for Shape up: Move 30 minutes daily - Run 2-3 times a week, after work with my kids while my BF is prepping dinner. - Blogilates’ august month every day for 15 min or more in the evening (aiming at 30) - Yoga : get back into my yoga classe on Thursdays for 1.5hours Fuel: breakfast everyday + calories - Take the time to eat some proteinated breakfast every day, like eggs and bacon, frittata, egg muffins, quiche, etc - Bring a second breakfast/snack for the am - Put a scandishake in my morning coffee to add calories Sleep: 7hours a day - Wake between 5h and 5h30 - Go to bed at 10pm Tidy: get back into a daily habit for 15 min a day. Tidy home, tidy brain. This makes me calmer, and brings more clarity in general. It eases tension as well. In my mind, a little goes a long way. - Wash dishes - Check laundry - Pick up around the house - Continue the Konmari method throughout the house - hoping to tackle these this mont: o Clothes o Books o Papers o Komono general o Komono office o https://www.pinterest.com/pin/319122323576061842/ Fun : Om shawl KAL - Start and maybe finish my om shawl with the knit along group
This is my 4th challenge ! This time, i will make it a little easier and focus on the 4 recommended goals, since the last times i had 5-6 goals and it was getting hard to focus. So, this time around i will : 1) Run 5 Km (CON 1 + STA 1) I am already doing the C25K program, and am now (as of today) doint week 4 day 2. I will continue to run 3 times a week to reach the 5km, hopefully by the end of the challenge. C25K recommends 9 weeks, so i should reach my goal in that timeframe. 2) Blogilates every day, following the beginner calendar (STR 1 + CHA 1 + CON 1) My goal is to do 1 thing everyday from the calendar, and the hole thing if i can. I would LOVE to check every one of those boxes. For some reason this challenge calendar appeals to me at the moment, so i will follow my wants and see where it leads. I love the fact that every day is different, and the goal is 10-15 min long everyday for only 1 of the things, so short enough that i can make it. I will aim to do this first thing in the morning. The rest day will be tuesday, or whenever in the week i feel the energy of timing lacks. If i already took it, i can't have another in that week, 3) Sleep 7.5h a day, from sunday to thursday at least (CON 1 + STA 1) This is a hard one for me. Has been a goal in the last challenges as well, still not where I want to be, but i am getting there. What i find hard is that with all my treatments, family time, household chores, at the end of the day i want to relax and do things for me before going to bed and i end up going to bed really late. I will aim for 10h pm, and waking around 5h30 every work day. This should give me enough time in the morning to include Blogilates and my things, while letting me get that extra 30 min i need desperetly. - Week 1: Sleep at 10h, for 7h - Week 2: sleep at 9h45, for 7h15 - Week 3: sleep at 9h30, for 7h30 - Week 4: sleep at 9h15, for 7h45 - Week 5: sleep at 9h, for 8h - Week 6: sleep at 9h, for 8h waking up at 5-5h15 every morning 4) Life : be mindfull and present (WIS 1 + CHA 1) Give the most important people of my life my undivided attention when i'm with them. This means : - Playing with my son at least once a day without distractions. - Hanging around my boyfriend and being there for him when he's with me instead of doing something else. - And meditating 5 min everyday for me. I will also leave my phone in my purse when i'm getting back home to limit electronics, wich is an addiction of mine and is in the way of this mindfullness goal. Side quest 1 : RPG Fanatics accountabilibudies. I will do the chanllege there and attribute 6 of my points at those. Side quest 2 : Clean and organise my Home (in any order) - shop my wardrobe for spring clothes and keep 20-30 items, not including accessories and shoes. - clean fridge and oven - finish cleaning and organising my paperwork - clean, organise and make pretty my drawer as well as the desk in the hallway - simplify my cleaning supply, replace them with ecofriendly brand or homemade equivalent Done 20/4 - organise the laundry area I will aim to post daily for updates, as this is the best way to keep me acountable and motivated. 21/4 edited my sleep goal
