Deffy # 36 - The Year Goes Skrraah, Pap, Pap, Ka-Ka-Ka, Skidiki-Pap-Pap and a Pu-Pu-Pudrrr-Boom, Skya, Du-Du-Ku-Ku-Dun-Dun, Poom Poom (Raw Sauce)

 

This challenge is about tying up loose 2017 ends and assembling everything I need to kick 2018 in the face.  This challenge will slowly ramble on until the first day of the 2018 challenge. Unfortunately, my back is still fooked so the focus will be on diet and treating my back like the delicate snowflake it is. 

 

Aspect One: Tying up loose 2017 Ends and saying goodbye:

2017 was actually super successful. I learned some very important general life lessons and found myself in a good mental place from which to work on my goals. I did great on my goals, too. So thanks 2017, let me see you out in the style in which you've become accustomed. Slayage!

 

1.       Try to hit my Goodreads goal. I am currently on 19 out of 25 books read but I am part way through two so I need to finish these two and read an additional four. It’ll be a stretch but if I select shorter books it’s definitely do-able.

 

2.       Lose at least 5 lbs. Losing the 5 will bring me down to below my lowest 2017 weight and if I manage to lose a little more than that I have a little cushion to allow some festive season weight to go on. Most of the 5 lbs isn’t actual gain so it shouldn’t be too hard but since I’m not sure how much exercise I dare do, this will mostly be controlled through diet so I need to track everything that goes into my mouth.

 

3.       Drink a glass of herbal or green tea every day. I find it easier to stay hydrated if I drink lots of herbal tea but I am very much out of the habit of doing this hence babysteps.  This will help drop the 5 lbs.

 

4.       Continue to photograph healthy meals. If there is no photo of the meal it means it wasn’t healthy so feel free to call me out on this ;)

 

5.       Sort out my business account and do my tax return. Pay tax bill and have everything tied up in that respect.

 

6.       Clear out phone photos

 

7.       Clean up bookmarks on chrome, and other housekeeping as I see fit. 

 

8.       Either upload to thread or send Shello a picture of myself in a bikini like I promised myself I would at the beginning of 2017.  Aw hell nah, ain’t nobody ready to see that. Maybe next year. (Shello breathes a big sigh of relief)

 

Preparing for 2018

 

moving-by-yourself-be-prepared.gif

 

We all know how awesome 2018 is going to be, so I am going to set the scene properly. 

 

1.       Work on and ultimately post 2018 road map.

 

2.       Find Accountabilibuddies. There is at least one goal I would like a partner for, someone who has a similar goal and can help me with this. It might not happen and it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t but it would really help.

 

3.       Eat down current food supply. Make way for Christmas food and spend less on groceries in December.

 

4.       Focus on back rehabilitation. I am going to pick a nice chilled out song and every morning before breakfast I am going to put the song on, lay out my yoga mat and stretch and meditate on the day and where I am at.

 

5.       Icebreaker questions!

 

That's it. 

 

New challenge - goooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Give me a minute to overcome my sudden panic of absolutely committing to such a goal........OK. Let's do this!   I know already that 2018 is going to be amazing so I might as well commit.  Also, I mentioned to LS that I'll need to buy a bikini for next year.  He is 100% on board.

I actually bought two bikinis this year and I rocked them in public, but I am not quite at the "rock them on the internet" stage. It's easy to be the hottest girl in a pool full of pensioners (title of my sex tape)

Day One Update

 

I spent the day trying to sort my back out with rest and a hot bath (which turned into a cheese based nightmare in itself but that's a story from last challenge) then I went into town to do some shopping and I had a meeting at work in the evening. I had a conversation with a friend weeks ago about my lingerie obsession and she asked how many bras I had an I estimated it at around 50 but as I was putting the laundry away yesterday I decided to count them and I only have 35 so I bought another one. It has a freaking harness, so obviously now I think I am Rihanna. After my meeting I met TH who had been up at the other end of the country on business and we had date night so no dinner picture since it wasn't overly healthy but it doesn't matter, it was DATE NIGHT. 

 

My chilled song for the day was this: 

 

 

And I stretched my back out with simple yoga poses and did some ruminating on how i wanted the day to go (and also ruminated on how gosh dang sexy this song is, as well as how I should have rinsed off that whey so I didn't become a human cheese). I had a herbal tea too but not until just before bed which wasn't ideal because of all the pee. I made progress on my reading goal too, reading about aeroplane design before bed because why not. 

 

Not a bad start to the challenge!
