Starting Tomorrow: The 31 Days of Adulting Challenge
Do you ever just feel like you’re faking your way through life? I do all the time. I take full advantage of being able to make my own schedule and eat what I want and go to bed whenever I feel like it. I pretty much live the life my kids wish they could.
There are two problems to this though: 1) When it comes time to do something I have to do, I don’t want to. I mean, I really don’t want to. 2) I make horrible, child-like decisions (like this weekend, when my husband and I ate an entire box of Samoas).
So the time has come. I need to grow up, so for the month of March, I’m drying out. Experts say it takes a month to break habits. Plus, just one month doesn’t sound too bad for trying something new and if I hate the changes in the end, then back to my cookie-loving lifestyle I go (maybe).
So here’s the plan: For the entirety of the month of March, I’m doing grown up things: Waking up early (and maybe even going to bed early). I’m not going to drop off my kids at school while I still wear my pajamas (a personal favorite of mine). I’m going to eat Paleo (which means cutting out processed foods, another personal favorite). I’m going to go for walks a few times a week. I’ll make phone calls in a timely manner and not let email pile up in my inbox. And I’m going to declutter every day because a) it will help me keep my focus away from wanting to eat junk, and b) a decluttered house is going to feel great to live in and it needs to be done.
Here goes nothing,
