Mountain 1: Physical Mountain
I headed out of Tokyo with a friend at the start of the month. We didn’t manage to find the initial mountain that we had planned, but we stumbled across another hike. The view of Mt Fuji from the top was spectacular and well worth the fact that we climbed over 300m in the first km! The hike did prove that I desperately need to improve my fitness!
Mountain 2: Mountain of Weight
3kg lost. Yay! I think the hiking may have helped!
Keep going- aiming for 4kg this month, so I need to increase my exercise levels even more.
I bought a FitBit last month and have been challenging my friends who have the app to various competitions. The competitive factor has definitely helped in the weightloss! I use the Fitbit Zip as I’ve found that the watches irritate my skin.
Mountain 3: Mountain of Paperwork
I managed found an organisation system that works for me inspired by The Sunday Basket by Lisa Woodruff, and now all my paperwork is in colour coded folders. I am so excited at the prospect, and all it took was a chick flick, a glass of wine and a Friday evening with hubby on another continent!
Mountain 4: Mountains of Photographs
This is mountain range is huge! I haven’t managed as much as I would like with regards to sorting my Vietnam photos, probably because I have been too busy sorting my paperwork! I will keep going, slowly but surely.
Same as last month- complete sorting the Vietnam photos, reducing the numbers to at the most
200 750! (200 became impossible when I struggled to get Day 2 to below 150 photographs!)
Mountain 6: Mountains of Creative Projects
I’ve had to buy another 2 weeks credit, as I didn’t manage to finish the Vietnam album. I did manage to scrap another page for the album, so I’ve managed 3/48 so far this year. CLG- how are you doing?
Have to, have to, have to complete the photobook as I need to get my parents copy out to them. It was after all their Christmas present. For 2016!
Mountain 1: Mountains of Books
Major fail! I did manage to listen to Girl on a Train through Audible, but actual reading? I suppose I did manage to read a couple of Non Fiction books on organisation and decluttering, but still no novel!
At least start one of these two books?
I am very chuffed that last month has resulted in some ticks and got me started on the path I would like to go down. Especially on the weight loss front. The challenge now is perservering. I have felt a bit flat this last week, probably due to me developing a roaring cold at the start of the children’s mid term break 10 days ago and now hubby and ‘K’ are fighting it.
But, I’ll keep going and let you know next month. How are your goals going?
