Good habits…

I wrote back in February about how there is a lot of talk that it takes 21 days to form a habit.  You can Google “21 days to form a habit” and get a few dozen results.

In fact, I found this, MamaJenn has a great blogpost about using the 21 days to change your life.  She created a lovely printable to help you keep track.

Mamajenn’s printable –  21 Days to Becoming {Habit Forming Printable}

 

 I’ve thought about my June +1 activities and came up with five things that are important and that I really need to work on.  I’ve got 21 days to make them habits. If I make it through the 21 days having done all five things everyday then I am going to reward myself with something nifty*.  

 Here is my list…

 1.  Drink 3 – 24 oz. tumblers of water EVERY day.

2.  Watch and dance/exercise to an episode of Shimmy, EVERY day.

3.  Write, edit or plan, but work on my writing, EVERY day.  (See the recurring theme?)

4.  Keep up with the weight and strength exercises, EVERY day.

 5. 15 minute project – set timer do as much as I can in 15 minutes.  EVERY day.

Everyday I will report on my daily results.  I’ll keep track of the day and progress below the “21 Days for Me!” banner.   I think I have picked the right combination of activities, health, fitness, personal, and household stuff.  It’s the usual stuff I have to deal with every day, this is more manageable.  I’ve got a plan, now it’s time to get started.

*To be determined later.

Day 1

 1.  Water –  3 – 24 oz. tumblers

2.  Shimmy –  Episode 1  

3.  Writing  –  Outlining

4.  Exercises – Abs/leg workout

5.  Project –  Craft room (15 minute timer)

 

***** I had a difficult time getting the Shimmy DVD to play.  I didn’t give up though and found a solution.  Yay me!
