Double Chai

Chai is the Hebrew word for life, and it has the numerical value of 18. So 36, my next birthday, is “double chai.” (“Ch” is pronounced like in Bach, not like in “chai latte.”)

As a reminder, my goals for the year are as follows:

  • No more than 18 soda/coffee a month.*
  • Walk at least 18 miles a month.
  • Pray at least 18 times a month.

I don’t have the inclination to look up how to embed a calendar here, so you get this:

Adar summary:

Soda/coffee: 14 definitely, possibly 16. (I forgot to log a few days, and then couldn’t remember what I’d drunk.) Either way, I came in under the 18 max goal I’d set. Given that I drank soda or iced coffee every day for at least the last eight days of the month, this surprises me. I feel like I must have counted wrong.

Walking to work: It looks like I only walked to work four times (well, three times TO work and one time FROM work). I’ll have to do a better job of this, since my goal is six times.

Praying: only 10 days; again the goal is 18.
