My Habits

21 Day Challenges

The 21 day challenges focus on short term changes that I may or may not continue.  This gives me an opportunity to experiment with habits that I could not or would not want to sustain.  I started the year with a little break from alcohol.

100 Day Challenges

The 100 day challenges are for progressed-based challenges.  These are things that I’ve wanted to do, but didn’t think I had the time, energy, or motivation to do.

3 Day Challenges

The eat healthier challenge was an interesting one for me.  I had never tracked my food intake before and it was a great way to become aware of my eating habits.

    Reading about why you started this is like reading my thoughts. I gave up alcohol all of January cus I needed a change. I’ve started knitting… Was painting a little… I need to commit and do it… I’ve been so bored I needed motivation! I just stumbled upon your post and clicked on your website/blog. It is great! Thanks for the ideas and motivation!!
