30 Day Challenge: Day 15

Woo hoo!  We're halfway.  Yup, it's all downhill from here. Take a moment and savor the last 14 days.  What did you learn from your experience?  Was there a surprise or two? I learned some logistical things about meditation and what works best for me.  Something as silly as "blow your nose before meditation,"  (allergies, natch) to bigger issues stuff like "make sure you family is onboard with what you're doing." Now that you've had a while to experience the small change is it everything you wanted it to be?  Are there tweaks to be made?  If you were going to start over on Day 1 what would you change? Please share below and I hope everyone is doing well! Lisa

    no real changes here since I live with just my teen daughter and dog I dont have to really ‘schedule’ my challenge around much seeing how neither she nor the dog are usually up early as I’m doing my challenge! LOL
    If I were going to start over, I’d probably make it a bit more challenging… like 50 push ups consecutively then 75 working my way to 100 rather than 100 in one day.
    think that’ll be next phase of challenge :)
    Then again if I weren’t doing rev abs challenge at same time maybe I’d already be doing 100 at a time..who knows….

    I have been struggling! Although I think about writing in my journal every day, I’m often not where I can do it! I’ve been in a store when I’ve had something to write about, in the shower, around too many people, etc. By the time I’m home or at a point in my day to be able to jot my thoughts or feelings – and lately, it’s been a lot of runs of emotions – the moment has passed and it’s difficult to recreate it to write it down hours later. Sometimes, I just don’t have any private time to do it, especially if I’m at work.

    So, I have written twice, but even after this 30-Day Challenge, I’m going to continue at whatever interval I can muster!

    Still going! And I’m in the same boat as Tara, where I should’ve made mine more of a challenge in the first place (tho I added a daily cup of green tea to my challenge, and that’s needed a reminder–tho I’ve done it!)

    Since I feel I can always improve on myself and on my life, I’m trying to think of what else I can add: I guess I can attempt a minimum of 20 minutes of piano playing daily? I’m always happier about myself when I do it (feel like I’m improving my skills, plus it’s a release) but there are so many weeks that go by where band rehearsal is the only time I play… for shame.

    I have to wait until my first post-op PT appt (yes I’m 2 months out, but it’s a workers’ comp approval nightmare) before I can add a daily physical/workout commitment. Hopefully I’ll get that worked out before the end of the week.

    Keep at it! :)

    You know you could add in another 30 day challenge at this point … I just dumped Diet Coke today (hopefully for good). My studio manager dared me and I went for it. :-)
