Loveable_Bouncer Posted December 31, 2019 Report Share Posted December 31, 2019 After being on and off for over 4 years now, I wanted to do a count reset. But with my knoweledge... Found a perfect song to kick this one off (for me... this is a perfect soundtrack to my goal right now ) Level 1: In the Now: Meditation & Journaling +1 Point for daily passed Focus in Chaos: Discipline on my to do list, on showing up to work and with school. +1 point for everything I see fit here (Will try to post daily of what was done) Finances: Do something on YNAB per a day for at least the length of time of song above (Slow Down by Nahko and the Medicine for the People) Added in Later: (Added after Wk 1: ) Mini- Challenges (Warrior Mobility Challenge and Snowball PVP😞 Do mobility at least every other day, snowballs when I get them. Bonus: Extra point for everytime I get to bed by 11 (at least am ready for bed and stay in room till 7, unless to get a drink or wake up early) IDK how SMART these goals are. But I know they are tough enough, but I think easy enough for whatever this Challenge time brings me. But they are a start. Everything above has a lot of emotions attached. Here is a bit more explanation. (adding in) Spoiler In the Now: Since the summer of 2018, I've been seeing a "healing touch" healer. I had found relief from chronic neck pain where I can do active jobs without feeling ill. Within months I ended up being strong enough for the first time in my life to join the dating pool. My bf was the first guy I met in person on "okcupid," within a month we were seriously dating. A year later I was able to step away from my depressants and anxiety meds. Along with finding a peace in spirituality, also ended up discovering St. Hildegarde (the coolest nun that has ever lived... for the 1100s). I'm still working on past traumas and my anxiety.... But literally everyone in my life that has known me for at least 2 years has been impressed of all the changes. Finally able to work on discipline, I've been advised Meditation and Journaling will help keep the process going and get better. It's all iffy, but the focus of daily stopping and taking a few moments has helped me get more done throught out the day and help with my mood. (Big WHY: I've surpassed myself, and am living a life I never could think of. Taking time to do something I always wanted to do won't hurt, and can open more opportunities.) Focus in Chaos: This is more i have always had goals, but following through is a weakness. With being hard on myself when I can't, or am stuck. Facing it and breathing through is the goal, as I cannot foresee what my career post being a student is like. I just forsee even more chaos. Also something are harder of living around a heavy weight of someone else's depression and anxiety I found (my mother is on a path of healing, but gets stuck at times... accepting it and working on my own stuff has been an interesting path on itself.) (Big WHY: Finishng things always has good results, I hope to add routines or different goals when I get stronger). Finances Basically discovered that having to manage my money is really hard... To the point tears are shed. I have a lot of coping uses with caffine and sugar, and usually money becomes a big part of it. I like to be smarter, acheive goals I never though I could. Plus dating a guy who is big on money and wanting to own his own business, and realizing what credit scores could help with. Has given me a bigger perspective.( Big WHY: a wedding and/or a kitten I forsee in my future in the next decade, having discipline in my finances could help no matter where my life takes me). Going to attempt daily checkin, and weekly add-up. Week 0 (Dec. 27 - Jan. 4 ) In the Now: 6/7 Fridaywas the only day I went against this Focus in Chaos: Looking back.... In some ways this week went realy fast, but I think I filled it with what I needed. However, noticed mother appreciates everything I do... Despite with my issues of transition times. Bought a calander to hope to help with communication with my mom. In process of actually putting it up with my school schedule before the 13th. Finances: Tried discipline, ended up impuslively buying Minecraft (had a copy... . When I need new windshield wipers..). Did go to food shelf for thier "extras" (baked goods, produce and protein). Just starting YNAB today. Week 1 (Jan. 5 - Jan. 11) ---- 95% In the Now: 6.5 /7---> didn't journal on Tuesday (100%) Focus in Chaos: 7/7 (100%) Finances: 3.5/7 - Sunday only got a new budget going, no additions until Thursday (50%) (NEW)Mini-Challenges: 4/3 (133%) (burpees can't be counted for days, due to how slow the challenge is going) Week 2 (Jan. 12 - Jan. 18) Working on to be Updated Week 3 (Jan. 19 - Jan. 25) Week 4 (Jan. 26 - Feb. 1) Week 5 (Feb. 2 - Feb. 😎 Other dates: -"On Call" for Jury Duty: Jan. 2nd (still waiting to hear anything back...)(feel like I should of heard something) Heard from them, I'm just on a list for the year.
