Wink 21 day challenge #4

This challenge is working for some of us and I want to keep it going!! It started in the Support thread, and I noticed that there were fewer and fewer postings! But, since I've brought it over here, we've been having success and I want to keep it going.

Here is how it works. You choose something that you would like to work on and do it for 21 days. (to make it a habit) Such as drink 80oz. of water, walk a mile, or what ever else may come to mind. You do a count down. But if you miss a day...you start over to day one. And you can start over many times, but if you're constantly starting over.....well then....I would say maybe you should find something else to work on for 21 days.

Also, during the days you're sick and your body just doesn't feel good, we have what we call a "pause". You pause your efforts until you're feeling better and just continue from what day you stopped.

Simple you say.....believe me,,,,it's not as simple as it sounds...there have been times that I just had to start over.


Anyone want to join me??

Well I've had an interesting morning...I got to bed at *cough* 7:30am. So I'm quite out of it. However, I went out to breakfast which involved a long walk there and back which I'm going to count as my exercise for the day. So DAY 2!

Can't believe I didn't stop by yesterday..I thought I did. Anyway, I got my walk in both yesterday and today. So DAY's 13 and 14 are done. I also spent both mornings carrying and spreading huge bags of mulch, so I KNOW I got lots of exercise.

DAY 15 is in the bag. I got in a nice long walk and it was even cooler than the last few days. I am thinking I might actually make 21 days.

Day 15 is finished!!

James and I spent the afternoon mowing and cleaning up the yard! I relocated (not to far, just a foot ) a bunch of lumber.....that was enough lifting for me for the rest of the week! I still have more yard work to do but I will be doing that tomorrow.


15

Dropping in to say Hey and great job on all the success!

I'm mulling a new 21 day challenge to start on the 1st. It will be water or exercise. I know I'll be out of town the 15 - 16, so I want to pick something that won't be too hard to keep up while at the beach. Either of those should work. Will be back soon to get started.....
