deftona Posted November 27, 2022 Report Share Posted November 27, 2022 Deffy’s Inner Child: A Christmas Story Hello hello hello! Christmas, already?! Would you look at that. This challenge isn’t about hard and fast goals because I have big projects that will necessitate this coming up next year (Road Map to come soon!). This challenge is about taking it a bit easy breezy, having fun and looking after myself. I love Christmas so much because it’s always so snug and we go all in on it. But that isn’t to say I don’t have goals I want to achieve! Boom or Bust must go on and we all know I need goals for this. Goal 1 - EAT DOWN THE FOOD STORES AND NO GROCERY SHOPPING EXCEPT FRUIT, VEG, BREAD, EGGS, COFFEE, TEA, MILK AND CHEESE AND TOILET ROLLS (This will be shortened to the much more manageable and App Tracking friendly: No Grocery Shopping. We start on the Christmas food on Christmas Eve and I think we should have a takeaway on the 23rd which means we have 25 days to get through with current food supplies which I am thinking will probably be enough. I will inventory everything today and post the lists as a way to track this. Please note – I am allowed to shop but this will be for food for Christmas. The only food I am allowed to buy for now is fruit and veg, bread, eggs, coffee, tea, milk and cheese. And also toilet rolls. Everything else I should be ok for and it’s about time I used up all my shampoo and conditioner dregs. NB - We always have a nice meal on the day we put up our Christmas decorations so we can buy this also but nothing else! Goal 2 – EAT 5 A DAY – I don’t want scurvy thanks. Goal 3 – DRINK 8 GLASSES OF APPROVED FLUIDS PER DAY I simplify this and call it water but squash and herbal tea counts too. Goal 4 – DON’T OVEREAT firstly from a health perspective but also because I want my food to last lulz. Goal 5 – CLEAN OR TIDY SOMETHING EVERY DAY TO LIVING DOLL (this song is problematic af) If this goal is about reconnecting with my inner child, I can’t ignore this goal. It was a running joke when I was little that when it came time to tidy up our toys, my sister used to tidy up and I used to sit there looking very busy pretending to tidy up. My mom used to pick me up and hold me upside down while I picked up toys and then she’d hold me over the toybox so I could put it away and making it fun like this is the ONLY TIME I was happy to pick up after myself. When I started Reception (first year of proper school so kindergarten I suppose?) my mom came in for a parents tea party and we were all having fun and then all of a sudden the teacher put on Cliff Richard’s classic Living Doll and all of the kids got up wordlessly and started to clean. She said it was like something out of the Midwich Cuckoos and really unsettling, but training a bunch of kids to clean whenever a certain song is played is pretty fucking clever if you think about it. So every day I want to play that song and clean until it’s finished. It doesn’t matter where or what I clean. Goal 6 – 4 Kitty Devotion Activities I want to have some one to one time with my kitty because she’s excellent. She does have this habit of dicking off when you start to give her any attention (cats gonna cat) hence the emphasis on attempting to play with the cat, but this goal isn’t about me, it’s about her and if she’s not in the mood I am going to respect that. She likes cuddles, treats, going outside, snuggling under blankets with me, when I say lovely things to her in my soft voice, and playing so I want to do 4 activities with her. Can be repeated in the day Goal 7 – DO SOMETHING JOYFUL EVERY DAY this can be anything – a nice bath, a Christmas movie, listening to some great songs, playing video games, having sexy time or prepping for next years goals with my bullet journal but I want to do something indulgently fun every day. For last year’s challenge we watched as many terrible Christmas films as possible and TH reviewed them and that went down very well here so there will be a bit of that too, although there won’t be as many opportunities to watch Christmas films because of the stoopid World Cup that shouldn’t even be on now (I’ll never forgive it) but I am promised there will be some Christmas films. New challenge, GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 8 2 Quote If it's not siesta or fiesta, I'm not interested. Profile picture credit : NF's resident super artist - NinjaKitten Link to comment
