On October 3rd of this year I will be entering the last year of my 30's...I'll be
The number doesn't scare me in the least but it did make me reflect on some things that I might like to do that would make me a healthier and more well rounded person.
I had a fleeting thought that I would like to spend the year doing 30 day challenges...so 12 challenges over the course of the year. But then I was immediately stymied by wondering what to do for each month.
I knew a few things I wanted to do such as meditate for 10 minutes everyday and run a 5k everyday for a month...but then the ideas dried up.
So I turned to the almighty Pinterest.
Most of the challenge ideas they had were exercise related...and whereas I would like to get into better shape again...I didn't want to spend the entire year working out.
I was able to find these two blog posts with 100 ideas each and from there I narrowed it down to the 12 I wanted to complete.
The twelve I decided on, and in order that I will be completing them are:
October 2016: Sell/donate 1 item everyday
November 2016: 100 push-ups, 100 crunches, and 100 squats
December 2016: Send a card a day to a friend
January 2017: Take a photo a day of something that makes me happy
February 2017: Play a game with the family everyday
March 2017: Do an act of kindness everyday
April 2017:Spend the month learning Italian
May 2017: Average a 5k everyday
June 2017: Go Vegan
July 2017: Meditate 10 minutes everyday
August 2017: Drink fresh juice every morning
September 2017: Make a new recipe everyday
I've also decided to start a new blog to chronicle the months...so come join me at The Challenge to Forty.
