Updating my progress. I missed a couple days but managed to make them up. At 33 words a day, letting things snowball would be a disaster.

I am slightly ahead of schedule, being about 30% of the way through the challenge and about 28% of the month has elapsed. So things are going well though I shouldn't get complacent. I am doing 30-40 words a day on average, a little higher than before the challenge.
My FSI Greek study has stagnated a bit but I will pick it up when the challenge finishes.
