#MasterMyWebsites Day 7

The last day of #MasterMyWebsites, day 7. What did I learn from this past week about myself?

Day 7: 2/16/15

Its Only The Beginning

Though this is the last day of my 7-day challenge, the mission is not finished. My challenge won’t be over until my website goals are completed. I had a health setback mixed with procrastination. No matter how you slice it, one has to always prepare for setbacks and disappointments.

Today was a good day though. I got a late start but managed to get a few things done.

I cleaned my room and did some laundry. I didn’t finish all my laundry as I had 5 loads, but cut it to 3 left. I also did some WordPress development on my client’s website, CurvesSouthOzonePark.com. It’s not much, but there’s only a handful of tasks left to complete before I can launch the website.

Physical Observations

Still feeling week and dehydrated. Not drinking enough water although I’m drinking plenty of Crystal Light juice. I’m not eating as healthy as I should but I’m not eating big portions either. I’ve been mostly sleeping for the week.

Emotional Observations

Mostly satisfied today except for getting sick. I was definitely having a good time this weekend although plans got changed since I wasn’t feeling 100%. Once I get back into the groove later this week, I’ll have more energy and confidence to continue my challenge.

Upcoming Tasks

  • Finish chores
  • Complete my client’s website
  • Write posts for cutiedddgamer.com and delightfulcritics.tumblr.com

Challenge Accepted

I did not complete my 7-day challenge. I realized I set an unrealistic goal for my usual lifestyle and ended up failing before I even start. However, its good to know your shortcomings. I still accept this challenge for the rest of the month – Saturday, February 28, 2015, to complete my web development project. I will still blog everyday about my progress. I learned that I have to be honest with myself and what I think I can handle. If I bite off more than I chew, it doesn’t go well when trying to talk and chew. I have to learn how to distinguish a reasonable goal versus a dream goal.

#MasterMyWebsites Day 3 & 4

Day 3 and 4 of #MasterMyWebsites 7-day challenge

Day 3 and 4: 2/12/15 – 2/13/15

The Unexpected

Yesterday morning  while getting ready for work I nearly fainted coming out of the shower. I sat on my bed to collect myself and realized I was abnormally shaking. I had to go to the emergency room.

All this week my health has been deteriorating. Fatigue, lightheadedness and lack of energy plagued me. While in the emergency room, I took 4 tests and the doctors found nothing wrong except for a slight high reading for blood pressure.

The physician told me that I was most likely dehydrated and have a minor iron deficiency. That makes a lot of sense because I haven’t been eating my usual 3 meals a day and not drinking enough water. I was told to get plenty of rest and take the next day off, which meant I have a total of 5 days off. However,¬† yesterday was like a workday since I was in that hospital for 8.5 hours.

Day 3 Epilogue

Clearing clutter from my mind, body, spirit and room. Can I finally get some exercise and meditation in for a better chance of progressing through the project?

#MasterMyWebsites Day 2

Day 2 of #MasterMyWebsites Challenge

Day 2: 2/11/15

I told myself that I would stay accountable no matter what happens and that I should document my challenge everyday.

This week so far has proven to be difficult physically and emotionally. Not with the challenge but in my daily life. I’m pressing on as trying not to take off any more time at work. But my body is slowly shutting down.

#MasterMyWebsites Day 1

Day 1 of #MasterMyWebsites challenge

Day 1: 2/10/15

The Unexpected

I had an appointment with EAP that helps city employees with a range of personal issues such as mental health, fitness and hygiene, work life, home life, and more. Getting home from Manhattan on the 2/3 train lines proved to be a painful journey. By the time I arrived home, my right foot was swollen. No laundry for me.

Earlier today I suffered a thigh injury with the subway turnstiles. I laughed at a young girl whose MetroCard wouldn’t swipe right, and then the gods punished me with a thigh poker made out of the turnstiles poles. I limped in pain for the rest of the day.
