Here is my Week 2 check-in of my 30 day personal challenge for the month of April.
“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.” ~Zig Ziglar
To say these last two weeks have been difficult is almost an understatement. And I am not referring to my 30 day challenge. That has actually been the easy part! My husband has been gone on two different trips. Work has been particularly busy and difficult. I have been extremely busy with my volunteer work. And, oh, there was that little flare of fibromyalgia along the way.
So this week’s entry will be short, sweet, and to the point!

Week 2 Results
Where I am still falling short is on my sleep. This has always been difficult for me. Never enough, not refreshing enough. Even Saturday night when I was completely exhausted I didn’t sleep through the night. It didn’t help that one of the dogs was barking incessantly at a squirrel she had cornered in a tree!
As far as my daily gratitude, yoga, and logging my food, here are my results:
- Workouts: I have practiced yoga every day. Even the day I overslept and then had a fund raiser after work, I made sure to come home and practice a relaxing session before I went to bed.
- Weight: So far down 2.5 lbs. and 1.5% body fat 🙂 (happy dance inserted here)
- Food: Logged every day, and haven’t gone over my calories. My next challenge, however, will be to work on the proper balance of calories between Carbs/Proteins/Fats.
- Gratitude: Haven’t missed a day in my journal, and am thankful I have been so successful thus far!
- Sleep: Still struggling here. I have had a few good nights of quality sleep, and a few not so good nights. Six straight hours of sleep is remarkable for me. 😦
This week’s goal: Better quality sleep!
This should be easier to accomplish, since I don’t have quite as many after work activities planned, I am hoping to take a couple of half days off of work, and I have a Saturday morning date planned with my husband for breakfast and a trip to the Farmer’s Market!
Do you have some bad habits or issues you would like to work on? Consider challenging yourself for 7, 14, or even 30 days!
