90 Day Success challenge! Organising my life

90-day-challenge Day 1

On Tuesday the 8th of November I started the 90 day success challenge inspired by YouTuber Analaigh.

My reasons for starting was that I need some serious motivation to get a million jobs done. The idea is that this challenge will help me to get things done at home, business, Uni and I would like to do more on a social and family level. I also want to be working out a bit more and really drop some pounds. I will be updating my blog and uploading some videos each week with updates and sharing some inspiration with you. Be sure to follow me here and on YouTube for regular updates. I love the idea of this challenge and sharing it with you all because the added support and followers motivate me to succeed.

My fitness journey begins this week! (Again!)

I decided not to put this as part of my 90 day challenge because my healthy lifestyle is a way of life and this should be the same for my fitness health and weightless. I want to kick off the week documenting my workouts, weightless and measurements. I have been so pre occupied and unable to find the time to work out but this is now top of my priority because I feel as though I am letting my self down.

From Monday I will aim to work out every other day even if it is just some sit ups. I will log into my fitness pal and note my food and exercise and I will blog my journey and do some videos with my progress and eventually my work out routine or what I am doing to drop the pounds. I am still weighing in at 13 and a half stone and wish to drop 2 and a half stones by March 2017 which is doable and then maintain.

I am breast feeding less and baby is now having more formula and on solids so no excuses “lets get it!”.

Okay let me be honest! I have not been doing as well as I would have liked this week I have been a little under the weather and had a private personal matter to attend to all week. But this is what challenges are all about life has a way of throwing curve balls at you and although this personal matter is a major set back which will be  taking up a little of my time each week for a while I will not let it throw me off track or get me down.

I can not solely blame my failings on this one of my MAJOR failing points has been no forward planning, I have not drawn up a plan of action, I have not noted the things, goals and tasks that needs doing. I have been working on a little bit of this and a little bit of that and while I can say that I am getting things done because I have not set clear targets things are not getting completed within a timely manner and I have jumped from one job to another which is so me but something I wish to change.

Having three young children including a 7 month old makes it a little tough at times but the last few nights I have been trying to get things done when they are in bed. I am now proud to say that I am getting some consistency with my course work and with my YouTube videos, writing and updating my blog. Sitting  studying, cleaning and de-cluttering and doing some repairs around the home.

So what I am going to do right now is set out some clear goals with some deadlines or priority and I will update and add to my list as I go along.

  1. Clear out spare room changed to clothing room = This month
  2. Made a start on de-cluttering my bedroom and will then prepare to finishes painting and add little touches =By mid Dec
  3. Make more time to study – Each week
  4. Work on my jewellery line and set weekly targets to create stock = Each Week
  5. Take time for me, pamper, photography, time to read explore and expand my mind and share my findings and experiences = Each week
  6. Blog more 2-4 times a week times a week
  7. Clear and de-clutter each room in my home before Xmas
  8. Find some exciting things to do with the children after School = Each week
  9. create one new meal from my many cook books gathering dust on the shelves and share them with you. = Each Week
  10. Explore some interesting facts and pieces of history = Each week
  11. Work on some new ideas for my YouTube channel and really set aside a schedule that I can stick to whilst introducing some new concepts. = Each week
  12. Paint home =Jan
  13. By more Xmas presents = Now till Xmas
  14. Sort babies passport = Done
  15. Book our holiday = Feb 2017
  16. Start adding to my gaming channel =Dec
  17. Three words D.I.Y I am a mum on a mission with my screw driver and tools, I have many repairs to carry out and this really has no deadline because the amount of work will carry me into late next year but making a start and planing and getting stuck in has made me so proud. You should have seen me and baby in B&Q this week I was lost but once I got my hinges, screws, expanding foam, sealant etc I felt like a BOSS!!
  18. Phone friends and family more a while back I cut down on my Facebook usage aside from my business and YouTube I rarely log in as much as I used to and now only log in maybe twice a week. So next steps is to really get talking more. Watch my Facebook detox here

Looking at my list I do not know if I will be able to get it all done within the time frames but it feels so refreshing to actually take the time to think and set some goals. If I can not get it all done I may just set another challenge and keep pushing myself to better myself, home and our lives.

The main thing is that I have finally taken these things seriously. I have set daily weekly and monthly goals and the weekly ones will keep me striving for a better me. I will update you on my progress soon.

Keep an eye out for this weeks update video
