30 Day Challenge!


I think we might be finally hitting a bit of a stride with some of the tenets for my path to getting better. Writing has been going well, and I feel mostly proud of what I've have been producing lately. I am flawless on the coffee front, but losing the battle for sleep and exercise. So, time to laser focus on these areas in the week ahead.

Day Nine saw me waking up earlier than I have been all week, which is great.. but I work earlier on the weekends as well, so that is probably why. Also, I was a mindless zombie as I ambled around the house getting dressed and organized as I waited for the caffeine to kick in. This is a clear indication that my sleep cycle is in shambles, but we already knew that.

I didn't wake up with enough time to get out and exercise, but I also didn't snooze the alarm to wait til the last minute to pop out of bed, so... progress?

I've been thinking about starting a new campaign under this challenge, based off of the suggestions I have been getting in the comments. I want to undertake a "SAVE THE SLEEP" campaign, which would be an all-in effort to set up and fiercely protect a sleep schedule at all costs.

This is the area that has proven the be the toughest to tackle at the moment, so I'll need to shore up energy to wage war on this battlefront. Invariable, this may or may not mean slackening the attacks on some of the smaller struggles, like diet, or exercise, for now to keep the necessary willpower in reserve when the inevitable push back comes during the twilight hours.

Perhaps it would help to come up with effective slogans for this campaign that I could jot down on bedside post-it notes, or recite aloud to rally my forces when the Resistance rears it's incessant head.... If you have any good ideas or one-liners for getting to or out of bed, I'd love to hear in the comments. Thanks for your continued support!



Unsurprisingly, the going to bed motivation will be the most important one.

If you get enough sleep then getting out of bed isn’t an issue.

“Make sure you get 8, mate”. :P

On another topic, how are you getting these constant whale votes? My motivation for writing wouldn’t be an issue if I saw those votes coming in every day. :)

Although I really only seem to have time to write once per week at the moment.

haha "Get 8, mate" nice ring to it.

Honest to god, I wouldn't be able to who decided to back me or why, but I feel blessed that they did. I can understand the sentiment about the motivation for writing, but hey.. only way to get the votes is to get it out there, right? Even one a week is fine.. im still struggling to get in the groove, and that was another reason for starting this challenge.

How's your goal, btw?.. debt free in two, right?!

That’s incredible that someone decided to back you without at least commenting on one of your posts.

I posted about where I am at with my goal yesterday actually. It’s extremely hard to sit behind my personal computer at the moment so I ended up writing the post on my phone while I was supervising a contractor yesterday. I still need to review the post and make some edits when I can find some time. I’m not completely happy with it.
