Day 90: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

Day 90. The Big Day! Which I spent doing none other than working from sun-up til sun-down again (although thankfully not as late as the day before!).

So what did I learn? Largely, that if you decide do anything for 90 days straight, as mad as you thought it was at the beginning, by the end of it it will feel like the norm.

This challenge has forced me to be creative, it has forced me to push myself to do things when I definitely did not want to do them, and I have learned a lot about myself.

I feel like if you give something your all, you can wholeheartedly say what worked and what didn’t work. Since a lot of my problems with decision making over the years have stemmed from a lack of experience and confidence (stemming from a lack of experience or experienced people to ask), that giving it my all was a really good thing for having confidence in my decisions.

It has also been incredibly good for my anxiety. A large chunk of my issues with anxiety stem from the overthinking that inevitably comes from this lack of confidence, as I try to figure out if I’m making the right decision. With deciding to give it my all for 90 days, I just had to keep doing it one day at a time until it was up, then I could worry about if it was the wrong decision!

There is an upside and a downside to focusing on one day at a time though. On one hand, it was easy to dwell on a bad day, but on the other, it forced me to be in the moment more, and enjoy the little things.

Some days it felt like 90 days was a long time, other times it felt like it would be over in the blink of an eye, but I made it.

What an achievement though. Proud of myself just quietly 🙂

Time to re-assess, re-focus, and settle in for the next instalment of this crazy life!

Day 62: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

Day 62 started by going in for an extra volunteer shift as they were understaffed for the morning. It’s such a rewarding job, that I don’t mind it losing my Sunday morning for it! And again this day ended uo with more paid work making it quite tight for time, but hey, I’d rather be busy moving forward than twiddling my thumbs!

I hope you’re on track to smash your goals today! (if not, it’s not too late to turn it around!).

Day 61: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

As has become the tradition on my Saturday’s, Day 61 was a physical grind, followed by a very busy night at work. 

It’s also a pretty satisfying day since I can physically see the fruits of my efforts. They’re small achievements to help keep me pushing towards bigger ones.

I hope you’re out there crushing it!

Day 58: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

Day 58 was a good one for my sense of current self, and knowing who I want to become. For those of you who have been reading my blogs or watching my vlogs for a while, you may know that I write my goals down every day. Yesterday I also started writing down what my ideal day looks like.

I started to write down how I would spend my ideal day, because this is really the first big goal that I’m heading towards, the freedom to spend my day doing exactly the way that I choose. This in turn will allow me the freedom and time I need to put full steam into my other larger goals, like funneling more time and money into the not-for-profit groups that I am passionate about, and making music.

I think this is going to be a useful wee addition to my morning goal-writing! It helps me envision the next big achievement ahead!

I hope you’re smashing it today!

Day 5: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

zen

I can hardly believe I’m only 5 days in on this challenge! I feel like I have learned, and gained, soo much from it already!

Yesterday morning I found myself in the middle of my second EVER yoga high at the end of my practice. I felt like I could have sat and meditated the rest of the day if I had the time, but settled for an extra couple of minutes to just breathe.

Was it the result of increased confidence from more committed and consistent practice? coincidence? or just the result of a really good Crown Chakra flow? Who knows… but time will tell!

I hope you’re smashing your goals today!

Day 3: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

gratitude

I feel that it will take time to get used to writing what I am grateful for each day! This is a new thing I have added to my schedule after listening to Danelle, and it is has definitely got me thinking! It’s not that I’m not grateful, but I’m usually soo busy getting everything done that I don’t have time to sit and contemplate the things that happened over the day!

I’ve found this has resulted in my filling whatever is left of my “10 grateful slots” with material things, which may not necessarily be the top things I have been grateful for throughout the day, but trying to remember these things is like trying to see shadows in the darkness.  It could be dangerous territory, with the potential to also think about what went wrong, so I will have to be careful not to put myself into a spin.

Other than that, so far so good! Onward and upwards!

Day 2: 90 Day Commitment Challenge with Danelle Delgado

Aside from new some wrist pain I currently seem to be experiencing during my morning yoga practice, Day 2 went SIGNIFICANTLY better than Day 1.

Note: If this is the first blog in this series that you are reading, you should read my introduction on my Day 1 post so you know what I’m raving on about!

I smashed out bare bones for lyrics for 3 songs in the 15 minute slot I give myself during the week, achieved all my morning tasks (eagerly snapping up my coffee stop reward on the way to work), and was UBER productive when I got there.

I felt light all day, and although I would usually practically chain-drink coffee at my desk, come lunchtime, I was very aware that I hadn’t made myself one yet (not that it lasted all day, but still a noticeable and unexpected difference!). I don’t know whether it was my elevated mood due to my songwriting block lifting, or Danelle’s words ringing in my ears, but either way I’ll take it! 88 days to go!

I hope your smashing your goals today! Why not try the 90 day commitment challenge yourself?
