#100DaysProject Challenge

Hey everyone. I hope you are all having a great and easy day ❤

Here in Israel, the government started to open almost all the shops and letting people out which is nice but I’m also afraid that this will make things only harder health-wise and the Covid-19, but I guess I will have to see and hope for the best.

In my previous post, where I shared a bit from what’s going on in my life right now, I’ve also mentioned that I am starting the 100 days project challenge at the start of May and I’ve already dropped the ball on that, hehe, but not by a lot. I am doing most of the things but the working out part (other than yoga), I tend to miss so I’ve scheduled the workout by days of the week, and this way I won’t be overwhelmed and just do one or two things.

The idea is simple: Choose a project or a goal, and do it every day for 100 days. The second rule I will follow is by Matt D’avella and that is you can miss 1 day but not 2. Third rule (of mine) is to pick one day of the week – for rest 😉

So, the first step is to choose a project or a goal… I have lots of goals for this year but I would love to achieve 3 in this challenge. I know you only should choose 1 goal/project but hey, I like to complicate my life, lol.

I chose these 3 goals because they will impact my life highly and I know that even though it will hard and life is already hard, and even if I won’t achieve any of them, I will still make progress and for me, that’s great as well.

So here are my 3 projects/goals I will work on every day for the next 100 days (I started on the May 1st:

Finish editing my book.

I am trying to edit this book for over a year and I always let life, house chores, and everything else get in the way. This time it is different! This time with this challenge I will do it every day even if I will edit only 1 word or 1 paragraph that day. At least I am touching my book and trying to work on it every day.

I tend to let life throw me where ever and then I fall far from my own goals and I don’t like that. I needed to realize that life will sadly always be complicated, hectic, and stressful, so I needed to learn how to work with it and not fight to go through it. I hope you understand what I’ve meant (it’s hard to explain, hehe).

The second goal is…

Practice yoga/Workout.

Part of my workout goals and losing weight I wanted to get back to my yoga practice, so I set that as my goal for this challenge as well.

I always love the calm and stillness that yoga seems to bring into my life, I always feel like I can do and be anything after a good yoga flow, how weird is that? lol.

I also want to workout every day, and as I said at the start of this post, I started scheduling each day with 1 or 2 (short) workouts sessions. This way I am not burning out completely and I will still have the motivation to do it.

Road to minimalism. (and clean house)

Here I am cheating a bit as I put to things in one, but for me, they are so well connected that I always put them together 😀

This will be the hardest of them all to achieve, not the clean house part but my journey to minimalism. You see my husband is a bit of a “hoarder”, not a real hoarder but he likes things, and stuff and more things and it makes my life more difficult as we are both very stubborn and I have a hard time convincing him to put away some of the nicknacks we have all around the house, that not only makes cleaning harder but also feels to me very cluttered when I look around the house.

Don’t get me wrong we both like stuff, deferent stuff, lol, but I am trying hard to declutter my clothes, items, nicknacks, and even books. Books are very hard and I already gave many books away and I do love huge library of books but at the end of the day, I am not getting younger and healthier and it will get harder for me to clean everything and take care of all the books, I need to think of the future as well and my future is a more minimal one.

Sometimes, it’s hard to admit to oneself that we are not getting younger and after a lot of reflection on my life situation and everything that is going on in my life, I need to live in a place that is not crowded with stuff. So this goal had become more and more important to me as time goes by.

I read an article not long ago, and it was about overcoming negative thoughts and what I mostly took from that article is that I can fixate too much on my problems and that only create more problems, hehe.

“Negative thoughts often revolve around what’s wrong with your life. Your attention becomes fixated on and exaggerates the so-called negative aspects of your life. Here your mind will often downplay what is going well.” By Melli O’Brien

I don’t know why but this part of what she wrote in the article spoke most to me, and I think that is why I really want to finish my minimalism goal/project.

So I am trying to work on this a lot and see what is in front of me and not too much weight on my issues so they won’t become monsters in my mind. That is why I also picked up meditation again and easy yoga flows to help me remove most of the negative thought and anxiety, especially at these hard times.

So these are my goals/projects I am trying to work on through these 100 days. It may be hard but at least I want to try to see them through and maybe even achieve some of these goals 😀

I will see you all next time, be happy, and stay safe,

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

October Goals & TBR

Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a great start to October ❤

We are already two weeks deep in October and even though I didn’t accomplish much, I still accomplished a few things that were very important to me, however, there are still a few things I want to finish or start, so I thought why not share my October goals with you 😉 and see how I will finish this month.

October = Fall to me and soon winter will come as well (omg how I want winter to come). You can already feel the air cooling down a bit and the days are getting shorter, which for a lot of people I know is not a great thing but for me it’s amazing. It is a sign that winter is closer than ever and maybe, just maybe this heat will soon be over (fingers crossed). Fall for me is cozy blankets, yummy hot drinks, and lots of reading.

I accomplished a small daily routine that helps me get up early in most of the days and even in the evening, I have a routine that let’s be more organized and productive. How amazing is that?

If you want to know more of my new morning and evening routine, let me know in the comments or through my social media and I will post a morning and evening routine for you all to see and maybe it will help you if you are struggling. (wouldn’t mind any tips as well if you want to share) 😀

But for now, let’s start this post with my monthly goals.

My October Goals are:

  1. Re-organizing my summer to fall/winter closet.
  2. Re-organize kitchen cabinets.
  3. Finish outlining the series.
  4. Continue editing (2 chapters at least).
  5. Prepare for NaNoWriMo (oh yeah, this year I am all in).
  6. Finish all my commitments before Nanowrimo.
  7. Read 8 books (OMG, yes… 8 books, hehe) 😀

Books I’m reading this month

I haven’t read much lately, I was in a huge reading slump due to all the stress and this month I want to do 3 reading marathons to kick start my new reading 🙂

The week (14.10-20.10), I want to marathon read Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children Series By Ransom Riggs for the fourth book A Map of Days that just came out (I can’t wait to read it).

Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children Series, Coffee n' Notes

Next week (21.10-27.10) I want to marathon read The Boahim Series By Raven Oak. The first book was amazing ❤

The Boahim Series, Coffee n' Notes

For the last week of October (28.10-30.10) and for Halloween, I want to read 2 more books (why am doing this to myself, lol?)

Toil and Trouble, Coffee n' Notes Shadow of the Fox, Coffee n' Notes

These are my very ambitious goals and huge TBR, but I know if I will push myself I will be able to achieve most of them, and maybe even all 🙂

What are you reading? Any goals you wish to accomplish this month?

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤

Missed Home

Home Sweet Home

Hello everyone, I hope you’ll all having a nice day ❤

I am so happy to write this blog post and share with you, my daily plans. I know it sounds weird, but I’ve missed my home so much these past few months and now that I have two whole days at home, the feeling is amazing and I want to share them with you 😀

Today I didn’t do the much-needed house chores, instead, I’ve slept a lot and did some work. I wrote 3.5 chapters (my goal was 4, but it’s okay) and I edited 5 pages (my goal was to edit 4, so yay). Overall I think I did okay 😀 And I am very happy with this day. I am still working at a slow pace, enjoying my time and resting a lot. After the hospital and me being sick for a week now, I guess I’m taking this time to take care of myself and regroup, I love every moment of it.

My plans for tomorrow is to wake up early with hubby and start my day with some writing and editing, do the important calls I needed to do today but forgot, lol, and do some house chores, because our home looks like it could use some loving.

That is all for this post, I’ve tried to keep it sweet and short, what are your plans for tomorrow?

My current read: Caraval By Stephanie Garber and so far it’s… Amazing!

Thank you so much for reading ❤

Friday Musing

Friday Musing

Happy Friday to all my fellow bloggers and wonderful readers ❤

Hubby and I are still a bit buzzed from the Movie last night (Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens) 😀 All I will say for now, for the sake of the people who yet seen it is, OMG – Go see! ❤

Finally, after so almost 10 days, I am feeling a lot better 😀 I am still hurting a bit but at least I’m done with those antibiotics (that was too much for me), so happy to be done with them. Now I can finally go back to my editing/writing and my reading.

As there are only 2 weeks till the end of 2015, I feel even more inspired to accomplish all the things I want, not just as a writer, but also as a wife and a blogger. Each year I learn something else and this year I’ve learned so much and I am sure it will keep me motivated and inspired, but that’s is another post all together 😀

Well, my plan for today is to sleep. I feel so exhausted that I can’t wait to just sleep for hours and hours 😀

Whether you are going to see Star Wars, hang out with friends and family or just stay at home with a good book or a movie, I hope you’ll have an amazing Friday ❤

As always, thank you so much for reading ❤
