In yesterday’s post I shared that today is the first of 100 days I’m going to use to take back my life. Today I’ll lay out my goals:
1) Write 200,000 words.
With all the recent emotional turmoil, I haven’t been as productive as I’d have liked and it’s weighing on me as another “failure”.
I know that for some people this would be a piece of cake. 2000 words a day for 100 days. Easy math.
Except life is never that clean. For one thing, if I wrote for 100 days straight I’m pretty sure my brain would explode (and there’s no amount of Bounty towels that could clean THAT up). For another, some of those 100 days will be filled with other stuff, like family visits and a really cool writers conference. SOOOOO 200,000 words in 100 days is a pretty lofty goal.
2) Train for a half marathon.
I’ve signed up for a half marathon training program with an amazing group for a race that begins later this month so that I can hopefully complete my fourth (!) half in November. Unfortunately I’ve been plagued by old injuries recently, but I’m going to try to power through them and cross that finish line. I need a new medal. 😉
3) Lose 25 pounds.
I’ve been guilty of self-medicating with food to numb my misery. No more! (Of course this means that my grocery cart may be loaded with even more Kleenex, but that’s okay. I’ll get through it.)
4) Meet new people.
There are many wonderful things about working from home, but it does make it a challenge to meet people and since I’ve moved to a state where I really didn’t know anybody, I’m sorely lacking in face-to-face contact. My virtual friends are awesome, but there are days when I wish I could speak out loud to someone other than my dog.
5) Do things that make me happy
I don’t even know what this will include, but I’m open to suggestions!
What would YOU like to accomplish in 100 Days?
It doesn’t have to be on the same schedule as my 100 Days…just what kinds of things would you like to make a concentrated commitment to at some point?
BUT if you want to join me, today, or at any point in this journey, please do. I’d love to cheer you on.
