New Plan

After only one hiccup I completed the Bible challenge. The Bible is on its way – hopefully in time to be useful for the exams.

If I stick to the new plan till 1st July, I’ll treat myself to a hotel in London plus a bus tour. If I fail, I’ll give JF £100 in Amazon vouchers.

The rules:

  • 15 hours tidying (5 minutes must be done each day except when I don’t sleep both nights in my own bed)
  • 2 hours reading FlyLady
  • 10 hours learning C/AL, AL or the Visual Studio Code editor.
  • 5 minutes organising or doing items on my to-do list daily.
  • 5 minutes doing a weekly task such as French/German/Hoovering etc.
  • 2 pieces of fruit per day – e.g. 2 apples not 2 grapes!
  • no eating while reading
  • no eating while standing up
  • no eating while watching a screen

except when supervised by a responsible adult  or when eating fruit or veg.

Starting again

As I’ve lost track of the C/AL and tidying, I’m starting again today. If I cook a recipe from scratch, I can get the Latin Bible 5 days earlier. Otherwise I’ll get it on 1st May. If I fail, I’ll give a friend £70 in Amazon vouchers.

The rules:

  • minimum 15 minutes of tidying per day (though I can save it up and do a lot in one go)
  • minimum 10 minutes learning C/AL per day (again can be saved up)
  • no eating while reading
  • no eating while standing up
  • no eating while watching a screen

except when supervised by a responsible adult  or when eating fruit or veg.

 

Challenge with a reward on 1st May

If I do the following, I’ll buy this book on 1st May:

vulgata

I think it will help with learning Latin.

I love this sentence: animam meam pono pro ovibus.

To achieve this:

  • minimum 15 minutes of tidying per day (though I can save it up and do a lot in one go)
  • minimum 10 minutes learning C/AL per day (again can be saved up)
  • no eating while reading
  • no eating while standing up
  • no eating while watching a screen

except when supervised by a responsible adult  or when eating fruit or veg.

This all starts tomorrow as I am going to have a last hurrah tonight.

New Plan

I can feel my stomach getting bigger. The attitude has been “I’ve heroically cut down on the booze, so I can eat Ferrero Rocher and Krispy Kremes with impunity”.

Plan for Feb:

  • No eating and reading.
  • No eating and watching a screen unless accompanied.
  • No eating while standing up unless accompanied.

Reward: a day off before the 10th March.
