28 Day Challenge

I’ve decided to start a 28 Day challenge to make some habit changes and improve my general physical and mental wellbeing.

So, what is it that I want?

I feel like over the past almost 2 years I have lost all of my good, healthy habits and that this has contributed to my increase in anxiety and listlessness. In undertaking this journey, my goal is to primarily focus on improving my mental health. My hope is that by improving that will lead to an improvement in my physical health. My three goals are:

  1. Exercise everyday for 28 days staight. For the purpose of avoiding letting my laziness get in the way, walking the dog doesn’t count.
  2. Actively practice mindfulness 2 days per week.
  3. No take-away for 30 days – includes ‘traditional’ take-away s like Maccas, KFC, etc. but also includes nachos, sushi, noodles, etc. No only will this be healthier for me, but it will save money.

I intend to hold myself to account my posting weekly updates to my blog. I’m not sure what exactly these will look like, perhaps a summary on my progress under each goal?

Hopefully you will be able to join me on my journey.


Week 1

Well, I think its fair to say that I have not had the best start to my mini challenge. I started strong on Monday with prepared meal plans for lunches at work and the intention of continuing my 16:8 fasting schedule. I even went to the gym. Unfortunately everything went to Hell in a handbasket on Monday night when my bad hayfever turned into a head cold which took me out of work for two days. I felt better on Thursday so returned to work only to develop laryngitis and completely lose my voice on the Friday. I’m writing this on Sunday curled up on the couch nursing a warm tea to sooth my throat. Let’s hope for a better attempt next week.
