In November I stumbled onto the Blogher 30-day challenge. I had been trying to motivate to publish regularly on this blog and the challenge really got me moving. I did 30 days of posts – but I stopped doing everything else. I stopped updating my family blog, stalled on my youngest son’s baby book…. After November – I haven’t posted again. I also haven’t been able to get moving with my other projects that fell by the wayside. I don’t think my answer is posting every day. I am going to try twice a week and go from there.
I have a long list of things I want to do on a daily-basis that I want to be part of my routine. My brother told me that he read if you do something everyday for 30-days it becomes a habit and then easier to keep doing moving forward. With the new year, and my kids finally back to school from school vacation – here is my list of things I am going to try to do every day for 30-days – hoping they will become a habit and then I can keep them up without as much trouble.
- Daily Excersie – on busy days this can be 5-10 minutes of yoga in my house
- Daily face lotions – last summer I went to an expensive dermatology practice and spent a ton on a face regime.
- Update family blog
- Drink water
- 52-week declutter project – I am following this blog which has daily decluttering and organizational projects for the whole year.
- Food logging – I use myfitnesspal.com on my phone. I know this is the only way to achieve my fitness goals.
