Chanda Posted January 4, 2015 Report Share Posted January 4, 2015 Chanda steps into the forrest clearing. She breaths a sigh of relief. She is home. She is alive. Now is the time to regenerate. Now is the time to grow stronger. Now is the time to live. 2014 was not the best of years for me or my family. If we were talking wine, the vintage of 2014 wouldn't be worth bottling. 2015 is likely to bring more upheaval to our lives. I need to be able to grow stronger and still enjoy life while dealing with all the challenges life throws our way. I turn 42 in 2015. We all know 42 is the "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything" . By the time I turn 42, I hope to have figured out what it means to me to be living the good life. I made a 12 point list which comes pretty close to what it means to me at the moment, it also has a couple of more objective goals of things I would like to achieve by then. This list is not final and it will be adjusted as I figure it out throughout the year. Main Quest: 42 or â€œLiving the Good Lifeâ€I am capable, loving and relaxed. I have daily meaningful contact with my husband and my 2 daughters Looking after my health and appearance is a habit Our home is organised and decluttered I am organised at work Regular contact with family (every 1 to 2 weeks) Regular contact with friends (monthly) Perfect day/week is a habit (includes eldest daughter school start) I lost 6-7kg Released 6 CB patterns + hobby business setup. + Blog every 2-4weeks / CB weekly posts I don't make a big deal out of everything in life, feel joy and laugh. I have dreams for the future. Obviously this will take sometime. Plus its been awhile since I completed a challenge. For the next 6 weeks, I plan to: 1 Fuel: First things first, my goal is to get a good start to each day... so I will be eating a good breakfast in the morning. 2 Body: After months of inactivity I need to start gently moving again. Yoga at least 60min per week.3 Mind: Messy House = Messy Mind... Do the "20 days to organise & clean your home" tasks. 4 Life: Continue shifting into living my "perfect day" on work days. On non-work days, I will not track but will aim to not deviate by more than a couple of hours. This I call: Phase 1: The frameworkMy Morning 6:00-6:45 (yoga?/mindfulness?/breakfast/get ready)Morning routine 6:45-8:00 (girls up and ready, clear the decks, lunch prep, drop off and go to work)Evening routine 17:30-20:30 (dinner, clear the decks, tomorrow prep, girls in bed)My bed time 22:30Attribute points will be worked out at the end of the challenge based on where I see the most improvement/benefit. â€œWe are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.â€Aristotle 1 Quote Lusitanian Druid, Level 9STR: 13 | DEX: 15 | STA: 17 | CON: 22 | WIS: 25 | CHA: 25â€œWe are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.â€ - AristotleCurrent Challenge: Living the Good Life II Past: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th Goal: 1001 Steps on the Road to a Home -> 18/348 in 2015 5.27%5.27% Goal: loose 9KG in 2015 -> 1.5KG lost 16.67%16.67% Link to comment
