Today was day 3 of the 30 day challenge. So yesterdays blog post I talked about discipline and proving to myself that I still could discipline myself. Today proved that, yes, indeed I can; however, my biggest challenge today was to not let the small voices in my head get to me. We all have these small voices in our heads and some people call them the “angry monster” on our shoulder that never wants us to accomplish a task that would help us. So this angry monster was all over me today. ‘IT’ even tried to tell me not to do my 10k steps. HA what a joke!
I am writing this post at 11:16PM on June 17, 2020. I am currently at exactly 9500 steps! YAAY! 500 steps away, not a big issue at all! I’m going to hit those other 500 steps in the next 30 mins. If that means I am writing this blog post while I walk then I will do that. I’m not giving up and I want to challenge ALL of you! No matter how big or small your goal is, just know you can accomplish anything that you put your mind to. It only takes 21 days to make something a habit. (P.S. I wanted to let you know today June 18, while I edit this blog post, I hit 10,162 steps!!)
I am not telling you it is going to be easy, I am telling you it is going to be worth it.
My summary of the day overall today: I got to spend a huge amount of my day outdoors just doing activities and walking and spending some good quality time. I am learning to put my phone down more and more. It is a great feeling, try it. Try to go outside and not touch your phone. I did that today. It is so good to be in the moment everything else can wait. I’m not an expert or anything I’m just telling you my experience.
Leave a comment about one of your goals or challenges you are working on below.
Fitness Challenge: My workouts seem to be a 3 days on schedule, 1 day off, 3 days on. So I switched my day off to today because my body needed to rest. Remember, during this fitness challenge I never mentioned not listening to your body. So I am listening to my body but that does not mean you shouldn’t move your body. I still had my goal of hitting 10k steps and I am getting there.
Happiness Challenge: My happiness today was high. I got to do some things I love! I worked, I spent quality time, and I was outdoors! It was pretty great. One thing that brought me down a little was my morning meeting just because it had some sensitive information that I’m not sure how I should feel about it.
Physical Goal: I feel so much leaner and not bloated. I am getting my 70+ oz of water in each day for about 2 weeks now and it is making me feel great. I try not to touch other drinks like juice and soda. So we are on a good path.
Food Goal: I would say I got my calories in for the day but probably not my macros. At 1:30 PM today I realized that I had only had my coffee. I was so caught up putting up my YouTube video, doing my meeting, and all my actual work that I totally got so caught up and then I had lunch at like 2:30. But I didn’t eat a bunch of junk.
Blogging Goal: Seems like reflecting on my day is such a good thing. You forget what you did each day if you don’t document it. I’m looking forward to reading these back at the end of my 30 days.
It’s not a goodbye, it’s a see you late!
