Monthly challenge: Recap + what is next?

Each month I’m challenging myself. For January I’ve chosen the seven minutes challenge, which meant that each day I had to do a seven minute workout . What a month it has been!
Seriously, I thought that this challenge was going to easy. That was definitely NOT the case for me. I’m not an active or sportive person, so I thought that a seven minute workout would be a nice and not too difficult way to become more active. Apparently a seven minute workout is very intense, but besides that I had to do push-ups and I can’t do a proper push-up. So I had to look it up and learn how to do it. Nevertheless, I did it! I didn’t miss a day, even though I often didn’t want to. It helped that you get badges as a reward to keep going and not miss a beat. I’m happy the challenge is over, but at the same time I’m really considering to finish the seven months challenge. What about you? Did you do the challenge?

Anyways, it’s a new month. So time for a new challenge. It took me a while to figure out which challenge I would take on this month. But after this first (hard) challenge, I decided that I could reward myself with a fun and relaxing challenge. I found one on neoseeker : 2017 Movie Challenge (see below the full challenge). I know it’s a year challenge and that watching 52 movies in 28 days is hard. So to make it a bit easier, I’m allowing that a movie can cross of multiple prompts. What do you think?

As always, if you have a challenge for me let me know! And if you’re taking on the challenge with me, don’t forget the hashtags #monthlychallenge & #asimplesmileblog
