It's been quite a while since I've done an NF challenge; I'm coming back now not because of the new year but because I'm in the home stretch of making another human being (due late February) and am feeling a little panicky about doing everything that needs to be done before this kid pops out while also keeping up with day-to-day tasks. It doesn't help that my daily schedule is getting busier and busier, with birth/baby classes twice a week at awkward times of day and additional things like the hospital tour, ultrasounds, and OB appointments. So! I guess I have three main goals for this challenge: 1. Continue preparing the gestation vessel for the final weeks of pregnancy, labor/birth, etc. 2. Complete major baby-preparation tasks. 3. Keep up with day-to-day tasks and non-baby-related obligations. Here are the specifics of my plan for accomplishing these goals: 1. Every day, complete the following: 2+ rounds of the exercises from labor prep classes 2+ servings of fruit 2+ servings of vegetables Take meds Go outside (whether it's just for errands or for a walk for walking's sake—working from home makes it too easy to stay in) and/or do at least one video of pregnancy yoga or pilates (particularly if the weather is bad) 2. Every week, complete at least one major baby-preparation task. Some of these include putting the hospital bag together, learning more about and procuring cloth diapers, re-arranging the house a little and doing some small fixes, prepping freezer meals for the first couple of weeks of craziness, etc. 3. Every day, list at least three tasks (non-baby related as well as individual steps to achieve the major baby-preparation tasks) and complete them. In addition to those changing three things, kitchen counter zero! We have a cleaning lady coming once a week now (hallelujah!), so general cleaning isn't as much of a concern, but the kitchen counters can still get full surprisingly fast. Full kitchen counters are a bummer and make us less interested in cooking good meals, so every night before I go to bed, I'll make sure the counters are clear. (And if anyone is wondering about water intake, I'm totally killin' it with Plant Nanny, so that's not a particular concern for me right now. Currently getting in about 2.5 liters a day.) I'm big into using a paper calendar/planner/agenda thing, so I'll be keeping track of everything there throughout the day. Still, I plan to check in here daily (as much as possible) to confirm that things are going well! (One more thing! I know this isn't much of an "adventurer" challenge, but I've stuck to the adventurers for several challenges before because I really really dig traveling. And this time around, I feel like I'm definitely preparing for an adventure filled with a lot of unknowns...)
