2016 was a GOOD year

New activities, new places, taking risks... I want more of that. But, as these last 2 months have been a bit of a downer, with all those headaches and almost no exercise, I'm taking it easy. I have a whole year to develop and grow, I don't need to do everything on the very first month.

 

So It's about baby steps

As always, the main point is, as stated in my last challenge, to live a meaningful life, so a big amount of energy and focus will be spent on not letting anxiety, bad feelings, procrastination or laziness drive me to another kind of life. This is the most important goal and every other one is subject to it; it's the final purpose of everything I'll be doing.

 

So, my first steps for this year will be (10 different areas):

 

Freedom of movement. Check FF update. DONE! Neck stretching long series at least once a day. Weeks 1 & 2: nope. Week 3: 4 times plus one visit to the new physio. Week 4: 3 times. From january 9, add 1 hips and 1 shoulder stretch. Weeks 1, 2 & 3: nope. Week 4: twice.

Being stronger. Self-defence: from january 9, twice a week. Weeks 1, 2 & 3: nope, only once each week. Week 4: DONE!

Outdoors. 1 short or long walk a week, outside the city. Weeks 1, 2 & 3: nope.  Week 4: DONE!

Eating healthier. Fixing broken thermomix. Tracking what I actually eat. WEEK 1: DONE! WEEK 2: DONE! WEEK 3: DONE!  Week 4: DONE!

Owning more clothes. Make a list of what is most needed. Go clothes shopping at least twice this month. DONE!

Clean and decluttered house. I have daily, weekly, monthly and season tasks lists. Follow them and keep track of what is done. WEEK 1: DONE! WEEK 2: DONE! Weeks 3&4: nope

Growing savings. First step is to regain the money that will be spent in the trip to London and put it on my savings account. It can take up to 2 months to do this. DONE! Began to save for the next trip.

Reading. Won't be buying ANY books until I finish reading all of those in my pile (this is going to be tough). Read for at least 20 minutes each week. WEEK 1: DONE! WEEK 2: DONE! WEEK 3: DONE! Week 4: DONE!

Icelandic. 1 page from íslenska fyrir alla 3 per week. WEEK 1: DONE! WEEK 2: DONE! Weeks 3&4: nope

Music practice. On standby until I get BigGuy advice. PLANNING DONE! WEEK 1: DONE! WEEK 2: DONE! WEEK 3: DONE! Week 4: DONE!

 

That's it. Not too overwhelming, but enough to gather momentum.

 

Points:

FF: 0.5 DEX

Self-defence: 1 STA, 1 DEX, 0.5 STR

Walking: 0.5 STA; 1 STA if walks are cross country and long.

Food: 0.5 CON

Clothes: 1 CHA

House: 2 CHA

Savings: 1 WIS

Reading: 0.5 WIS

Icelandic: 0.5 WIS

Music practice: 1 DEX

 

Let's begin!

that's the beauty about baby steps - he would have and many more times until he got it. Babes don't give up :) We'll just have to remember that baby in us

 

I'm always impressed how organized you are, wow!

 

Following of course, squeeeeeee

How come you're learning Icelandic? It's really cool that you are, it's a great language! I love how Icelandic just got kind of stuck in time compared to the other Nordic languages. :)

I like that too, it's like a frozen language. I chose it because I wanted to learn a new one and this time it was for me, so it didn't mind that the language were "useful", I chose it because I like how it sounds.

I'd love too. But unfortunately it is a very expensive country to travel to. Will have to wait for now...

Ok. This is it. I've packed my suitcase and prepared all my materials. One night of sleep and I'll be in London. Wish me luck!

(I promise I'll catch up on all your threads when I come back AND that I will drink at least one cider to the health of you all!)
