Rebel Pilot Gar Posted December 27, 2021 Report Share Posted December 27, 2021 Hey all happy almost new year. I've become more consistently inconsistent with my routines and want to get back to a healthier one. May will mark my 10 year anniversary on these forums too, so that's fun. So here's my plan for the first challenge. Going to keep it very basic with the goal of building on each of these items as the year progresses. 1) Build a morning exercise habit by using stationary bike for at least 5 minutes daily How: Wake up, start coffee, hop on bike, shower Goal: at least 5 days/week "Big Why": Keeping a consistent exercise routine helps me feel less stressed and anxious. Working out first thing after waking up is ideal to help me feel successful and avoid guilt of missing workouts because "something came up" during the day. 2) Save money by reducing alcohol consumption How: No drinking alcohol at home. Okay to have 1 with dinner if we go out or a special occasion at home (anniversary), but this allowance is limited to Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. How part 2: Having water, flavored seltzer and herbal tea available as alternate option. Goal: at least 4 dry days/week "Big Why": Continuing to save up to buy a house. (Honestly we have enough, just waiting to find the right house for the right price, but additional money saved is never a bad thing) 3) Prepare for eventual move by decluttering How: Dedicate 15 mins to declutter / clean a specific area of the house (ex: Kitchen table, specific dresser drawer, specific shelf on bookcase, etc.) Goal: at least two 15 min sessions/week "Big Why": Preparing for future house. Just because we haven't found one yet doesn't mean we need to wait until last minute to clean our current home.
