February is the best month for month-long Challenges.
We here at Grumpy Rumblings have decided upon two challenges: one for each of us.
#1 is going to do a boring challenge. She will write for 30 min for work each and every day, including Saturdays. There will be no failure. No excuses. (Barring things like hospitalization, of course.) The hope is that after 28 odd days of that, going back to 5 days/week will seem easy. Hope.
#2 will be doing the Steampunk Challenge. My plan is to read 3 steampunk books during February (maybe ambitious?) and post brief reviews of each.
#2 is also considering doing different challenges each month. These are instead of New Year’s Resolutions because I feel capable of keeping each one for a month, but not for a year.
Jan.: Figure out list
March: inbox zero at work
April: Floss at least 4 times per week every week
May: write every day for 30 min., without fail
June: Eat less junk, more veggies (#1 suggests joining a CSA)
July: get-a-handle-on-my-money month
Sept.: Get at least 7 hours of sleep every night!
Oct.- Dec.: TBA
Hm… #1 is intrigued by this idea, but is not sure that she has enough willpower. Except for floss. #1 is totally up on the flossing every night, but she does that already. She’s awesome that way. #1 is going to have to make a decision at some point about whether or not she’s going to go back on metformin this year and begin the long slow vomitty process of getting her body ready to reproduce, which would mesh with #2′s June goals since #1 has to eat like a perfect eating person in that situation. More on that in an unfinished post that will probably appear sometime in March.
