This is that last task of the 30 Day Health Challenge 2014. It was a great challenge for me. 

Now this task is to learn something new for the remainder of November.

What Did I learn today?

I learnt the chords on the piano for Silent Night! Not a shabby job at playing it, if I might say so myself.

Here are some ideas for things you can learn







~ mechanics

~ tiling

~ building

~another language

This are just a few that were and still are on my list.

What things have your learnt today?

What are some of the things on your list of things to learn?


Benefits of Fresh Air

Yesterday was the start of

Task 8: Get out in the fresh air

I know that:

– Some places are extremely cold.

– Some places have several inches of snow.

But fresh air is extremely important. Even a few short minutes will do.

Task #7

This is day 2 of Task #7- do Something fun everyday!

You might be surprised to find that this challenge is extremely difficult to accomplish in this high stress, time consuming world.

What fun thing did I do today?

– I made chocolate mousse! Yum!

What do I plan to do tonight for fun?

– I plan to cut out some things to sew for a little baby. Sewing relaxes me when I am not rushing to get something done. And even then, I still enjoy it tremendously.

– I plan to watch a “chick flick” as my husband calls it- you know the ones that everything goes like a fairytale and there are no tears in the picture and you can just watch the picture without any overly negative emotions.

Now for my check-in:

With 7 tasks started I am finding that there are 2 that I am struggling with (beginning with the most difficult one)

Task 2
Drinking enough water has always been a challenge for me and it is hard. But I am working on all the tips I shared so that I can get adequate water daily.

Task 1
Getting adequate rest is hard with trying to complete my thesis after the children have gone to be since they leave me no time to do it during the day. But last night I was in bed by 9:30 p.m. It is almost 7 and I will work until 8 then sew while I unwind with the picture playing. I plan to be in my be by 10 p.m. the latest.

This is check-in #3 for the 30 Day Health Challenge 1-30 November 2014

If you are now finding this challenge, here is a link to the schedule for the challenge.

So far the challenge has been going great except for one major thing- I am finishing my theis. But unfortunately I do not have time to do it during the day, so this means I haveto be up later at night.

So I m not getting enough rest at night, but I try to make up for it with a nap during the day. Let me say that this is not the same as a rest at night. So tonight, I plan to get my rest no matter what!

Wish me luck with getting some work done today so that I wouldn’t feel the need to be up lte tonight.

How has your challenge been going?
