Adding Another Challenge to September


As if I don’t already have enough to do, I am adding a 30 Day Blogging Challenge to my “To Do List” for September.  I’ve already signed up for SparkPeople’s Countdown to Skinny Jeans 30 Day Challenge and am on day 4 of my Clean 9 detox.  My son is still at home as his college course doesn’t start until the 15th and I have to fit in work (employed plus 2 soon to be 3 self-employed jobs), learning support appointments, giving blood, talking to my husband – I guess he needs to fit in somewhere! – and I can’t even remember what else.

Anyway, I can do this.  All it takes is a little time management and wanting to do it.  I’m just going to have to start making daily to do lists, prioritise and carry stuff over.  Today’s to do list looks/looked something like this:

  • Exercise for Skinny Jeans Challenge
  • Ironing
  • Stay in waiting for the water board to carry out a survey for a water meter and, maybe, fit a water meter – will be here between 10 am and 12 noon
  • Create a Virtual Tupperware party for Tupperware York
  • Schedule Facebook posts for Be Youniquely You with Fiona
  • Complete the first challenge of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge
  • Make dinner
  • Speak to husband
  • Get through another day of Clean 9
  • Do bookkeeping work
  • Go to work for 3 hours
  • Find some time to relax, just 5 minutes!

I will make it, I may not complete everything on the list but I will make it through the day.

  1. Ooh – I just started a running blog – it’s literaly still steaming after coming off the press – cos I need to get running again (I got fat!) – is it too late for me to join you? Maybe mine can run on the extra few days into October?

  2. You sound like me when it comes to taking a lot on. I often find taking a lot on makes me more productive and keeps me busy. I really hate the feeling of having nothing to do. Good luck with all your challenges!

    • I love to be kept busy it keeps boredom away and keeps my fingers out of the chocolate box. Although I like to find time for reading and watching my favourite tv shows too. I try to fit as much in as possible between 8 am and 6 pm (dinner time) so that I can relax after dinner.

  3. Wow – an example of someone who knows how to fill their day. Good for you. Challenges really help me to get things done, that is why I am doing a 30 Day Blog Posting Challenge. Good luck to you. Have fun.

    Am off to find out what Sparkspeople is all about. 🙂

    • Hi Victoria. Thanks for visiting my blog.

      I love challenges and usually have a couple on the go for various things that I want to achieve. September is usually my busiest time for challenges to help me get back in the swing of things after the school holidays.

      I hope you like SparkPeople. They are a free health/diet/fitness website.

  4. That is a whole lot o’ challenges, right there, Fi! Good luck to you in a very challenging September!
