Becoming the best version of myself

Hey Guys!
I've been floating around this accountability section for a while and I've finally found the courage to start my darn own because honestly I can never find the motivation to exercise and eat and be the best version of myself

1. To drink 2-3L of water a day.
I have this horrible habit of not drinking nearly enough water
2. To exercise everyday
Monday, Wed & Fri - Weight training
Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday - Cardio
3. To stop eating chocolate and chicken nuggets
My comfort food...not together of course
4. To actually have a skin care routine
Ya girl neglects to moisturise her face
5. Do all my chores every day
Sweep the floor, Pack and unpack the dishwasher, put on a load of laundry, Make my bed and tidy my room
7. Study everyday
I have this bad habit where i sit at my desk and procrastinate by making study timetables and being on AN instead
8. Wake at 6 am
Get into good routine, and not rush around in the morning
9. Eat food!!
Have this horrible tendency to not eat all day and only eat dinner

but there’s only so much shrinking a girl can do before she disappears

MAN I FORGOT THIS EXISTED! Honestly, I've been getting good at the waking up at 6 am and studying everyday but everything else has gone out the window! I must make a note to work on these more!! Thank you Snow Leopard!

Hey!! Well done on waking up and studying; even if everything else disappeared in the blur of work and life, it's something. Also don't be discouraged if you drop the ball now and then - it's only human, and you can always pick it back up.

Can we get an update as to how you've gone in the past week? Even if it's all in red, I'd love to start pestering you about what you need to do :))
I will take responsibility for what I have done. If I must fall, I will rise each time a better man.

1. To drink 2-3L of water a day
I think over the last few weeks I have only achieved this like maybe 1 or 2 days
2. To exercise every day
I haven't been working out only the incidental exercise from work and volunteering
3. To stop eating chocolate and chicken nuggets
Been going well with this one...except yesterday, I baked choc chip cookies  8)
4. To do my skincare routine
yeah Ive been pretty much on top of washing and moisturising my face twice a day
5. Do all my chores every day
Not bad but not good - I've been remembering to do my chores on and off
6. Study every day
Was doing pretty well except for these last 3 days I've lost all motivation to study
7. Wake at 6 am
Been doing this ok, sleeping in a little too often though  :-\

Would I be able to do something crazy? I'd like to overhaul your system temporarily. Feel free to take on board anything or not.
Especially considering the fact that it's the gosh darn holidays (and you deserve to give yourself a lil bit of a break!!) here are my suggested revisions:

1. To drink 1.5-2L of water a day
(if you're not exercising a lot, 3L is a lot!! Then again, it all depends on your body, so whatever works best for you, do it.)
2. To exercise at least 2 set days per week
(Maybe Wednesday and Sunday? Space it all out.)
3. To stop eating chocolate and chicken nuggets
(yeah fair ok, same tbh)
4. To do my skincare routine
(this one is great, give yourself some love every day <3)
5. Do all my chores every week
(allocate days and times for separate chores so they're more spread out; eg. make bed every morning, clean out the dishwasher when required and clean up your room every Tuesday and Saturday)
6. Study 6 days per week
(give yourself a mental break and some breathing space! Maybe use this time to exercise and get out of your usual study space.)
7. Wake at 6 am
(I don't know your schooling situation or your reason for choosing 6 AM, but it's good to find a habit - you can sleep in for up to about half an hour a couple days per week but try to not mess up your sleep schedule too much)

1. To drink 2-3L of water a day.
2. Follow an exercise routine
3. Read for an hour before bed
4. Meditate for 15 minutes each day
5. Wake at 6 am and go to sleep at 10 pm

Alrighty so I have NOT been keeping myself accountable or doing anything to contribute to any of my goals which needs to stop. Particularly from just before my Bio exam i just fell into a hole of working, attempting to study and over organising to the point where i never got anything done.
Im going to start this again kind of as a branch of my atar goal. If you have read my VCE Journal you will have seen I have my atar goal and beneath that i have 3 sub goals with objectives
GOAL: 94+ ATAR
Mini Goal #1: Maintain physical and Mental Health
Mini Goal #1:
Maintain physical and mental health

Strategies
Follow an exercise routine
Meditate for 15 minutes each day
Read for an hour before bed
Drink 2L of water a day
Go to bed at 10 pm and wake at 6 am

Mini Goal #2: 97% Grade Average for Further Maths, HHD, Psychology and Legal
Mini Goal #2:
97% Grade average in Further Maths, HHD, Psychology and Legal

Strategies
Complete checkpoints and topic tests after every topic/AOS
Complete a practise exam a week (starting July)
Revise all notes every Sunday
Stay ahead and ask for extra work
Document mistakes made

Mini Goal #3: 95% Grade Average in English
Mini Goal #3:
95% Grade Average in English

Strategies
Write an essay a week and get it marked
Complete a practise exam a week (starting July)
Read texts 4-5 times: 1st Reading - Basic Understanding; 2nd reading - Annotate; 3rd and 4th Reading - Deep Understanding; 5th reading - Refresh Memory
Ask questions and get regular feedback from teacher
Document mistakes and weaknesses

So my first sub goal has got to do with health cause I aint gonna be at my best if im not physically and mentally healthy! So thats why it is my first sub goal! I definitely think i will find it a lot easier to keep myself accountable over the summer holidays then during school terms so hopefully, if i get into a habit now, with work it'll carry through!
Onwards and upwards!
