Often people write Bucket Lists with the goal of achieving the things on the list by the time they die, others like me write a Bucket List to complete before their next birthday or next major birthday like 30th or 40th.
This one is part of a specific exercise rather than something I’m working on myself (if that makes sense).
It’s called The Better You Movement (#betteryou), and it focuses on people making these small, 30-day bucket lists of things they’d like to accomplish in order to better themselves, their community, or to give back and help others.
So here are my goals, on this occasion they are all to do with me bettering myself. When Jaxon is a little older or a little more settled then I might be able to get back into volunteering and serving at church.
1. Lose 5lbs towards target.
So far, this hasn’t happened. In fact at weigh in on Thursday I had put on 2lbs. I have weigh in on Tuesday this week instead of Thursday. Hopefully it might have made some difference.
2. Finish crocheting current Christmas present and start next.
I haven’t even picked up the current Christmas present. I got distracted with the Adopted WIP and then picked up a different Christmas present. So I guess I’m working on a Christmas present even if it wasn’t quite the one I had been meaning to do.
3. 31 days in October meet step goal on at least 10 days (10,000 steps per day).
This in theory is fairly easy. Especially while we are having unusually warm weather but actually it’s not. I walked 13 miles earlier this week when I was in Blackpool with Chris and Jaxon but since I got back hitting the 10k steps daily goal only happened once (and only just!). I have to stay in on Monday to help out my brother with something but I figure walking home from church today might work.
4. 31 days in October meet water goal on at least 20 days. (2 litres per day)
Again another one that should be easy. I have a litre plastic bottle with a sports cap and so just have to drink two of them each day. While I was pregnant and since I’ve been breastfeeding I often find that I’m really thirsty. If I can do it for at least the 20 (actually 21 as that creates a new habit) should be enough to rewrite it as a habit and I will remember to do it.
