Challenges Day 2

Challenge 1: Cold Shower Therapy

Wasn’t even close to a struggle here today. I really am flogging this, but I am going to add in that I need to jump out of bed immediately my alarm goes off to get the benefit out of this. Aiming for a all of my workout, shower and to be dressed by 0630 every morning for the rest of this challenge – just to toughen it up a little.

Challenge 2: Spanish Vocabulary

Moving through Spanish at a fairly high speed. Learning how to tell people where you would go to do particular activities today. When I do my next run through of all of the lessons I will attempt to write this paragraph in Spanish to make it more difficult.

Challenge 3: Teeline Shorthand

Still waiting. Used some of this time to work on my Masters study.

Challenge 4: Lumosity Training

Another session of Lumosity training complete. The statistics are starting to show that I am improving already (I did a few days before starting this challenge). I would really like to bring myself into the top 10% of every category. I am not sure if this is possible but I will definitely be trying.

Challenge 5: Journal

I really enjoyed today, especially recording how each of the challenges is going. It doesn’t take much to spend a tiny amount of time both doing the challenges and coming up with a quick spiel about how they are going and how they feel. I don’t know if anyone else would ever want to read it, however it is out there and they are welcome to. If anyone does read it I would love to hear some comments. Perhaps by the end of my challenge I will actually be writing articles that I feel actually have some semblance of logic and may merit and actual readership.

Challenges Day 1

Challenge 1: Cold Shower Therapy

Got up, smashed out my push-ups, sit-ups and squats no problem. Jumped into the shower for the full 5 minutes of freezing and loved it. This is barely even a challenge anymore, I might have to do a couple of days of 10 minute cold showers to build up the challenge. Accordingly I will be focusing on achieving the other challenges a little more, just maintaining this one.

Challenge 2: Spanish Vocabulary

One more lesson on Spanish Dict complete. I think that I will repeat all of the lessons in 1. I should be able to do each lesson twice within the 30 day challenge which should cement the vocabulary in my head. I will also be trying to ‘think’ in Spanish a little during each day.

Challenge 3: Teeline Shorthand

Still waiting for the Teeline books to arrive in Peterborough so that Mum can bring them down. I will study them at that point. I think it is good that my challenges will become staggered as this will allow me to introduce new ones. I am aiming to have five challenges per week going, but one finishing each week and a new one beginning.

Challenge 4: Lumosity Training

Another session of Lumosity training complete. There isn’t much to write about these sessions except that I anticipate being able to feel a difference in mental aptitude at the end of 30 days.

Challenge 5: Journal

Well the evidence of this challenge is the above blog post. Work was killer today, all inductions and went forever. Hopefully it will be a little bit less hectic as the week progresses. I am also looking forward to getting the study all over and done, with the first assignment due next Monday and the last due in October.
