Healthy Pony Motivation Round Sign Up
« on: March 18, 2018, 02:19:02 PM »
It’s time for another round of Healthy Pony!!!

This round is all about motivation. I see a consistent trend on healthy pony rounds. Posting goes by the way side when it gets closer to the end, and at times we throw in the towel. So we are going to work on keeping the gusto going for 3 MONTHS!! how are we going to do that? By having prizes at the end!!!

I will be donating custom Wings and small knitted items for prizes. If I come across other extras for prizes, I will add them too. There could be multiple winners, but it all depends on how well you keep your gusto going! If you want to donate a prize you sure can:) it will be your responsibility to ship.

You will rate your day from 0-5. 0 being you did nothing towards your goals. 5 is going above and beyond your goals for the day. It is your responsibility to calculate your numbers each day. It’s a great idea to post daily your number to help you keep track. Pony peeps here are awesome, so I know you will be fair and honest with your scoring, just don’t  be too hard on yourself.

You can sign up at anytime!

What are your goals for 2018?
I want to make an income with Music lessons and knitting. I also want to participate in a Holiday Swap. I would also like to loose some weight that I gained from my depression. I would also like to start writing a book, and finish my knitted temperature blanket.

What do you want to accomplish in the Motivation Round of Healthy Pony?
1. Get into a work out routine. 5 days a week is ideal, but 3 days would be a good progress.
2. Get 3 months of my temperature blanket knitted.
3. Have completed knitted items ready to sell.
4. Play piano ideally 5 days a week, but 3 would be good progress.
5. Save money. Some needs to go to a pony fund, and more needs to go to a safety net when life goes wrong.
6. Take a moment to post a positive comment daily on this forum.

It looks a lot, but tiny steps with all good habits :)

What Does a 0 day look to you?
I do absolutely nothing. I veg out and not even attempt a goal. This only applies if I have the ability to do something. If I am traveling or injured, super sick then I will not be so hard on myself, but if I have the time I should at least try, and if I don’t well then it is a 0 day.

What does 5 day look to you?
When I am supper happy with my day. I could get through all of my goals, or I could reach a 3-5 day week with my goals like piano and work out! If I feel super excited to tell you all I had a great day, it is a 5 to me:)

What can you do or use for motivation ?
The 35th Anniversary ponies are in my stores right now...I want them all:) hehe. I am going to record my numbers as points and have a number of points to get the opportunity to purchase one. It will be a challenge, as I did a bit of a spree earlier this year. If I sell a lot of items I will also get bonus points:) I used to wear a two piece Swim suit and I loved how I used to look in it. So I am going to picture myself to hope keep me motivated:)

Tell us your dream
I want to make a living income on music lessons, and knitting. It is possible, just need to keep working at it:)


**********

All you have to do is fill out the sign up form and post it here:) From time to time I will ask for you to post your total scores, just to keep them in mind for prizes. You can sign up at anytime, but adding scores will not count until April 1st...and that’s no fooling:P heheh I tend to make lame jokes:)

Since I allow anytime starters, the points towards a prize from me will vary. I will announce the point goals towards the middle of the round. A way to get motivated again.

This round will start April 1st and end June 30th.  Let’s be the best ponies we can be:)

*as you move along your goals and rating can change. That is a large part of the healthy pony process, is learning what works, and what directions and paths you need to go on:)*

What are your goals for 2018?
As of March 2018:
1.  Keep up the awesome work of meal planning/food budgeting to $150/person/week.
2.  Have some kind of yard sale so we don't have three rooms of clutter in piles.
3.  Develop a greenhouse that will extend our growing season so we don't have to wait until May to plant and only get until September to finish :D

My answer in Jan 2018:
What do you want to accomplish for 2018?
1.  Budgeting our food, no more than $150 weekly per person - yes, accomplished
2.  Some kind of exercise regime - nope
3.  Employment! - nope :(
4.  Have that yard sale I've talked about for years... -nope
5. Get the floor to ceiling bookshelves installed so we can have our manga back in the house!!! - nope

What do I want to accomplish in the next three months?
1. Seed inventory!  I have no idea how many packets we have, but it's fairly chaotic and all stuffed into card binders and recipe card boxes.
2. A regular login and practice of my Spanish on Duolingo...
3. Setting up *some* kind of social media presence since it appears to be hurting my job search that I'm not "creepable".  I shudder at the thought of someone Googling
me but apparently nobody respects privacy anymore!

from January 2018:
What do you want to accomplish in your first three months?
1.  Some serious meal prep and planning so we only have to reach in the freezer, no more "it's 9pm and dinner's nowhere to be found" - mostly yes
2.  Get the DH's LEGO collection sorted properly so we have the Man Cave  returned to us, instead of an avalanche of chaos waiting to happen, what with bins and boxes and Honey-Do projects :D - DH nixed this, he got very angry and pointed out that, "the lumber alone would cost $2000-4000 and we don't have that money just sitting around so maybe after we pay off the THREE trips to the USA we had to make for YOUR family, we can consider it."  yeah he is bitter.

What do you want to accomplish in the Motivation Round of Healthy Pony?
-the perseverance to KEEP GOING

What Does a 0 day look to you?
- NOTHING done but feeling sorry for myself

What does 5 day look to you?
- all daily chores done, plus a new project with a direction started

What can you do or use for motivation?
-I visualize my garden in full happy spring blooms, when it smells of candy and sunshine
-I put on music with a good beat and dance

Tell us your dream:)
- I am not sure if I have a dream... I have always struggled with this.  Career-wise, it has NOT been helpful.

I have been sewing mostly - sizing up DD's clothing with pieces of her other too-small clothing.  I disassemble using the seam rippers and then re-sew so it can fit her for a few more months.

Also meal prepping... I made a bunch of breakfast sandwiches and cereal/fruit bars.

What are your goals for 2018?
Getting a income from my art.

What do you want to accomplish in the Motivation Round of Healthy Pony?
Setting up a Etsy store with at least two products.

What Does a 0 day look to you?
I do no art whatsoever.

What does 5 day look to you?
I work on my art for a couple of hours.

What can you do or use for motivation?
I need to get into a routine. If I've been working on my art every day for a week I don't like breaking that routine but once I do, I have a hard time getting back to to it. What's skipping one more day when I've already skipped one? But that one day which became two suddenly becomes a week or more and gone is the routine and I end up doing other things instead. Every day that I accomplish my daily goals (I have four, working on my art being one) I put an X in the column for that goal next to the date in my bullet journal monthly overview. I need a long line of Xs in each column to keep up the motivation for all of my daily goals.

Tell us your dream:)
Having my own online store selling my own designs plus other things and being able to live off of it.

What are your goals for 2018?
This time I think it would be more sensible for me to focus on wellbeing and general mental health, making positive habits and sticking to them
Make more time to read, even if it's just a little bit each day
Carry on practising the guitar, 3-5 times a week
And still making more time to see some scenery, even if it's just a walk around the outskirts of town, a short walk is still time well spent!

What do you want to accomplish in the Motivation Round of Healthy Pony?
Develop positive habits and stick to them consistently - no more slacking!

What Does a 0 day look to you?
Lozzing around doing nothing and feeling rubbish, and/or totally ignoring the mental health goals I set for myself on a daily basis. Also zoning out every two minutes and not being aware of what's actually going on. I do that far too much and it's getting to be a problem. :/

What does 5 day look to you?
Getting up early to make the most of the day (lie-ins at the weekend are okay) Making time for my goals, even if it's just a small step for each one and generally being focussed on what I'm doing.

What can you do or use for motivation?
Getting back to tracking my goals. I could make a chart for each month and mark successful days, maybe capping off each successful week with a nice sticker (I've far too many stickers of stars, dolphins and cats sitting around unused!)

Tell us your dream:)
Feeling calmer and worrying less, being more able to take a difficult situation and work out a solution rather than getting in a flap about it.

I am starting a bit early, but I have a weekend off :shock: I have not seen that since October 2017!!! So I am making huge list of things I need to do. From cleaning to knitting to organizing! I get one point for each item.if I get 75% of my list completed, I will start off with my own personal reward points!!! I never get a weekend, so it will be great:)

Ok, here goes (although might get tweaked, I just need to get something written down).

What are your goals for 2018?
- church Christmas bazaar in November
- get through some books
- tidy craft room

What do you want to accomplish in the Motivation Round of Healthy Pony?
- get more stock made for the bazaar
- finish the current book I'm reading
- clear up loose papers and odds & ends in the craft room
- post a monthly Art & Craft thread to share new projects / shop updates

What Does a 0 day look to you?
Doing absolutely nothing, just vegging out all day. I'm having to accept that Tuesdays and Fridays likely will be low ranking days due to our schedules/family visits, but I'm hoping I might be able to give them a 1 at least if I read a bit before bed.

What does 5 day look to you?
I think I'm going to do 1 point for each hour of productivity. Probably would only be weekends that get up to a full 5.

What can you do or use for motivation ?
I have a pocket planner that I never use - going to use that to track my progress each day.

Tell us your dream
To boost my Etsy shop, and get more organized / clear out clutter I don't really need.
