50 Challenges Update

Back on the 30th of June I posted 50 Challenges I set for myself. Some of them are really big and won’t be done for quite some time, but I have done a few.




#17 – Write a letter to myself to open in 5 years. I wrote it at the start of July. It got a little decorated by my daughters because I didn’t put it in an envelope straight away and they are great at getting their hands on everything!



#27 – Do a proper 10 day detox. It was an interesting experience. Immediately after doing it I did not see the benefits, but I do now. It really helped curb my tastes in food, which in turn helped prepare me for news I received a bit later, I am gluten intolerant. I feel so much healthier now.



#44 – Donate blood. I have always wanted to do this, but for various reasons hadn’t e.g. low iron, no available appointments when I was free etc... 4 years ago my sister in law had a baby and lost a lot of blood. It was quite traumatic and she needed blood. It saved her life. I wanted to donate then, but couldn’t as I was trying to have a baby and you can’t donate if you are pregnant. You also can’t donate for 9 months after you give birth or if you are breastfeeding. Well, 9 months after my first daughter, I was pregnant again, so yet again, unable to donate for another 18 months.



After that I had some medical issues and low iron again, but thankfully at the start of August 2010 my iron was high and I was able to donate. I’m a good bleeder, with awesome veins! But I couldn’t donate fully, as I got really sick and dizzy. I will do it again though.



#45 – Be the host of a meme or blog hop. I have done this, but I’m not sure if it is something I will continue.



#50 – Switch to my own domain. I had to change my blog name to do it, but I like it so much better.
