I am one of the folks who recently fell in love with Rachel Hollis. As I was watching Instagram storiesrecently, I saw this picture. Then I started seeing Rachel post about the challenge and the thought behind it.
The concept of ending the year like we go into the year was a novel idea to me. I think we all can own up to that this time of year just kind of takes over with all the things, and we often forget to take care of ourselves.
Since school started, I have slid a little on getting up without hitting the snooze button no less than 5 times. I drink soda way more than I should. Even this week I missed a couple workouts when I had been so good for months not missing even one.
So I want to do this challenge, because I love challenges. I love challenges because it keeps me accountable. Challenges are like to-do lists to mark off. And doing something for 3 months will hopefully make a big impact.
- I am going to get up at 5am on the week days and 6:30 on the weekends because I am a realist) to walk and do a devotional. I honestly can’t remember the last time I was consistent on a daily devotional.
- I am going to give up gummy candy and soda. Peach rings and Dr. Pepper are my weakness. I ate almost a whole bag today, and I have had soda almost every day this week. Yikes.
- And when holidays tend to be more stressful than necessary, what a better time to get a new journal to write my gratitudes down.
- I am going to work out every day. Repeat…I am going to work out every day.
- I am going to finally read Rachel’s book. I have had it on my wish list for months, but reading books is hard for me right now. I just cannot keep myself awake! I have time at George’s gymnastics practice, so maybe I won’t fall asleep while I am reading in the stands.
Now does anyone out there know of a Snooze Button support group? I am going to need it.
I may share more of my progress (and struggles) on Instagram because blogging is increasingly more difficult for me these days.
Have you heard of this challenge? What would you commit to for your last 90 days?
