Stick to a Budget - I believe in retail therapy. Not just a little bit, and not saying it in a joking way, but going way, way back, the way I learned to deal with things - good, bad, devastating, whatever - is by shopping (thank you, Mother). With the past two years of my life being such a roller coaster, I have been spending ridiculous amounts of money on things I don't really need. This was especially a pain in the rear when it came time to move all of that stuff last week. It's time to get a budget, and actually stick to it. I'm not really anticipating this is going to go very well, but we'll see.
Bright Someone's Day - I was in line at the Sonic drive-through the other day (I will choose drive-through over drive-in 100% of the time there), and when I pulled up to the window, the woman handed me my drink and said the guy in front of me paid for my order and said to have a nice day. It was something small, but it totally made my day. Not many people take the time to do something nice for strangers, and I'm making it a point to change that in my life.
Blog Reading / Commenting - I kind of stink at this. I'll do really good for two or three days, and then I'll go a week without doing it. I don't comment on nearly as many posts as I'd like to because I get so far behind. I'm actually blocking out time during my week to do this at least 4 times a week. It's hard to stalk the people I want to stalk when I don't check up on them daily.
Water - I suck at drinking water. I mean, i drink it, but I just don't know how I'm supposed to drink the recommended 100 oz per day. I can drink nothing but water all day, and I still can't seem to do it. It's like I have to force myself to drink that much. And I feel miserable. But, I want those benefits, and I figure if I can force myself to do it every day this month, I'll be good to go with it daily in the future, right? **For those of you who can actually do this, please do share how you make it happen without feeling miserable**
Chik-Fil-A: Just Say No - My walk of shame is carrying the Chik-Fil-A bags / cups from my car to the trash can. Seriously. It's a problem. First of all, I love a good fountain drink in a styrofoam cup. And they have it. Also, their chicken minis are crazy addictive. And have you tried their grilled chicken nuggets? I die. I have to stop this. It's not going to be easy, and I imagine there will be more than once I'm going to hate myself for this, but I *will* succeed.
Organize Blog - I don't know how it happened, but some stuff disappeared from my information and side bar a couple of weeks ago. It's time to reclaim my blog and get it back to 100%. Blog neglect is a serious thing, and I no longer want to be a part of it.
The J - I am not even going to attempt to pretend like February was anything but crappy when it comes to working out. I only went a handful of times, and I can tell. I feel like crap. So it's time to re-focus and get back to the gym on a regular basis. 12
What are your goals this month?
