This challenge is about planning and crossing off items on my to-do list. Challenge To-Do List Get off the damn phone! Build the Wall. It'll be a glorious wall with no monkey shit on it at all. Everyone will want a wall just like mine. The monkeys, they'll pay for the whole thing. Those voices in my head that day this'll never work, they're just afraid, they're ruled by fear, so they spread fake news. We don't want fake news, that's what the monkeys want, that's what the monkeys bring. Now the monkeys, they're good monkeys, very hard working, I love the monkeys and they love me. But we don't need the fake news they all bring, so we're building the wall. Grow my Forest. Read a book for leisure Read another book for leisure!

I guess I'm here. Howdy. Goals: * Home cooking 2x/day. This is to curb my eating out. I love Chick-fil-a and it's great for when I'm running late into work, but let's face it, it isn't that healthy. * Bike at least twice. Preferably the trail with my mom because then I can get some good mileage in (we did 11 just before New Year). * Lift heavy things. Even if that heavy thing is just me. Every other day minimum. Anything counts if I do 5+ reps of it. * Finish a book for once. I'd like to get in one chapter a day. This is actually doable now that I'm probably only working this semester (my university where I just transferred apparently lost my transcripts from when I applied so that's nice 😑). * Less negativity. Okay this one is very subjective but I've had this niggling feeling lately that I spew negativity. Some of it comes from my home life (my grandmother is a very negative person and my mom unloads on me a lot about her). A co-worker recently told me that I like to complain... and she's not wrong. I unload on my best friend all the time on Facebook and I hate it every time I do it. I'm not aiming to be a ray of sunshine, just more conscious of my attitude. Less cynicism. More constructive outlets. That sort of thing.
