August 2017 Challenge 

I have 2 challenges for myself this month.

  • NO pork for the whole month. Only chicken, beef or fish. Given this, I need more options for food as the office cafeteria may not always serve chicken or beef or fish.
  • NO clothes shopping. This one, I am thinking until end of this year unless there is an item I need that’s not in my possession right now. I want to save my shopping budget so that I can go on a shopping spree maybe next year hahahaha.

It’s just the 4th of the month so let’s see how things will work out.

Update (September 3, 2017): 

Success! I was able to say NO to pork and clothes shopping last month yehey! Continuing on to this month. One month at a time hehehe.

Goals for March 2016

While I did not do well with my goals for the past 2 months, I’m still not giving up.

For March 2016:

  1. 10,000 steps a day or a total of 310,000 steps for the month
  2. Kick off C25K training
  3. Cut-off cable subscription by making daily follow ups with Sky Cable
  4. Complete The Project Management: The Basics for Success course at Coursera.org and pass the weekly exams
  5. Change blog theme
  6. Visit Pinto Art Museum

Update: Goals for February 2016

Update on my goals for February 2016:

  1. 10,000 steps a day or a total of 290,000 steps for the month – FAILED
  2. Kick off C25K training – FAILED
  3. Cut-off cable subscription. I seldom watch TV nowadays, plus I bought a TV Plus from a colleague last year and a DVD player, so that should be enough. – QUITE (Just because no one has replied yet to my email, and no one has been answering their hotline for ALL the times I contacted them. Today, I tried their Contact Us page in their website but it’s returning an error that’s not user friendly….hay naku! I also tweeted them. Hopefully, they will reply.)
  4. Read one non-romance book – FAILED (I was into reading personal finance and Frugality blogs for the past months)
  5. Complete The Project Management: The Basics for Success course at Coursera.org and pass the weekly exams – FAILED (and I suck.)
  6. Meet with insurance agent to process update of insurance details – QUITE (Since I’m still not decided whether I will have it fully paid up or not…but I will meet with her next week and hopefully, I’ll have a decision by then.)
  7. Plant pechay – SUCCESS (with the planting…growing it is another story…)
  8. Get back to the daily bible readings – QUITE (Started it but skipped some days. Doing better this month.)

I am not quite pleased with the results. Need to have a reality check with myself.

Goals for February 2016

What?! Second month of the year already? And after this comes my birth month again? Tatanda na naman?! Can we have a pause button for a while? Hehe.

Update: Goals for January 2016

Update on my goals for January 2016:
  1. 10,000 steps a day or a total of 310,000 steps for the month – FAILED (Had to prioritize getting better as I got sick at the start of the year)
  2. Kick off C25K training. Target 3rd or 4th week of January, in the hopes that my cough and colds will be gone by then. It sucks to be sick at the start of the year, but grateful that it’s not something serious. –FAILED (Because of weekend travels over the last 4 weeks, getting better took longer than expected)
  3. Cut-off cable subscription. I seldom watch TV nowadays, plus I bought a TV Plus from a colleague last year and a DVD player, so that should be enough. – QUITE (Already sent a request. Sky Cable’s hotline sucks. No one’s answering. Let’s see if my email gets a reply.)
  4. Read one non-romance book – SUCCESS! (Read Stock Smarts – Stock Investing Made Easy)
  5. Complete The Project Management: The Basics for Success course at Coursera.org and pass the weekly exams – FAILED (Too many things going on on and off work. I want to do this when things have settled down so that I would have full focus on it)
  6. Meet with insurance agent to process update of insurance details – FAILED (Too many things going on. I have to make a decision on one of my policies, but not until I do some computations.)
What happened with the first month?! Gone by too fast and I failed in most hehe. Well, February is here for another chance.
