After completing the 4 week game, I thought it would be great to play with my family. We are spread out from coast to coast and I hardly ever get to see them. I thought this would be a fun way to connect and encourage each other to be healthy. OK, I'll say it: I wanted to lose a few pounds after a summer of copious snacking. (But I only snacked like crazy because I knew I'd be working it all off come September!)
Part of the game requires you to choose one bad habit to get rid of and one good habit to adopt.
My bad habit is spending too much time on Facebook. So I am giving it up for 4 weeks. It's going to be hard because my little fingers sometimes have a mind of their own as they fly across the keyboard. I made it yesterday without checking Facebook once, but I had to catch myself several times when I just reverted to my habit.
My good habit is going to be writing 2 hours a day. Writing has been a goal of mine for a long time and now that all the kids are otherwise occupied for about 7 hours a day, I think it's time to stop making excuses and get to work. Ideally, I will be writing things that could eventually be sold for money, but this blog should expect to see a little more action too.
So, gentle blog followers and readers, I hope you enjoy the increased postings here at OMM. Feel free to leave comments telling me how awesome I am, because, you know, that would totally help me out with this competition. Did I mention there is cash prize at stake? Cash!
