2011 was A Year of No (or Few!) Challenges for me. And I met that goal head-on! :)
2012 will be A Year of a Select Few Challenges (I’m getting bolder).
I’ll continue a few of the perpetual reading challenges I’ve committed to – these are basically reading through the imprints (Reagan Arthur and Amy Einhorn). I may add another fun challenge that I did for a few years, but stayed away from during 2011′s self-imposed challenge ban (can you guess which one?!)
And, I’m joining the Get Moving Fitness Challenge (the challenge formerly known as the 100 Mile Fitness Challenge). It’s a set-your-own-goals type of challenge – you can measure miles, hours, days, laps, depending on the type of movement and your personal goals. I’m sticking with the original plan – my goal is to walk 100 miles during the first quarter of 2012.
I’m seeking ideas on how to motivate myself. I do well with visuals (yes, I’m making a graph/grid, and will be coloring in boxes for each mile I complete), and I do well with rewards (I really am a simple woman!). But what carrot should I hold out in front as I walk (and walk, and walk)? Because, let’s face it – a literal carrot is not going to motivate me!
