Last week I was pretty down about all of my failings. But a failure one day does not need to be the nail in the coffin on your goals. Instead, I used my frustration with those failings to motivate me to have my best week yet. Thursday I followed through and recorded not two, but three videos. I recorded the rules to card game Exploding Kittens, redid my video for Mascarade, and a video on how to buy, sell, and transfer cryptocurrencies on the crypto exchange, Coinbase.
Friday I had a pretty busy day after work and was only able to make one video. But overall that still added up to 4 total over just two days. Then, to add to this success, I made a “What is Blockchain” video, “What is Mining” video, and a “How to Play Blend Off” video. Adding three more videos for good measure. In addition, I started setting up my youtube channels so that I can actually post these videos and hopefully start getting some youtube followers. (The videos are not live yet, but will be soon).
As for my fitness goals, I bought a weighted jump rope and added it into my workout routine. I now have been doing 100 jumps with the jump rope in addition to the rest of my workout. Thursday I did an extra workout, which allowed me to get to my new goal of 4 workouts a week with my Friday workout. Then, this weekend my volleyball team that I play volleyball with on Fridays decided to play some pickup games at the beach, causing me to spend almost 3 hours playing some very intense 2 on 2 and 4 on 4 games of volleyball, which were intense enough for me to consider it almost a fifth workout.
Not only did I succeed with my workouts, but I turned down cupcakes and bagels this week at work. All of this seems to have paid off as today when I weighed myself I am down 1.4 pounds! It was extremely exciting to hit so many goals and then also see my weight drop a little extra from what my weekly goal is. My hope is that I can keep this momentum up and continue this success long term.
