January’s habit was: Daily Bible study.
How I’m doing: I suspect this is probably the hardest habit to keep up. If I miss one day it’s so easy to get out of the habit. I’ve been doing really well though and I’m pleased at the results.
February’s habit was: Exercise daily (even if it’s just 10 minutes).
How I’m doing: Not too shabby! Here’s how I did in August.
March’s habit was: Drink 8 – 10 glasses of water daily.
How I’m doing: I think this is the easiest of the habits I’ve started this year. I definitely drink more water than any other drink… unless you count coffee. And that’s water too. Double score!!
April’s habit was: Be early or on time for everything.
How I’m doing: Other than the doctors appointment I completely forgot about until the next day, I think I was at least on time for everything this month.
May’s habit was: Less procrastinating, more doing!
How I’m doing: I still struggle with this but when I realize I’m procrastinating I try to get it done or at least figure out why I’m procrastinating about it and take measures to combat that.
June’s habit was: Plan and incorporate a morning routine.
How I’m doing: My morning routine is starting to shape up a bit since we’ve started homeschooling. I have more of a structured time to do everything and I think that has helped.
July’s habit was: Plan and incorporate an evening routine.
How I’m doing: Some days are better than others but for the most part I have a pretty well run evening routine. Most of it is autopilot now. (Yay!!)
August’s habit was: Eat a healthier diet.
How I did: Overall I am pleased with the strides I made towards eating healthier. There were some instances when I had to eat fast food (one day all three meals were fast food) but I know I still made better choices than I would have done in the past. My fruit and veggie intake definitely improved and the amount of processed foods I consumed was down. As long as I continue to be mindful of what I’m eating and do what I can to improve myself I think I’ll do well with this habit.
September’s habit will be: Get dressed to the shoes each day.
My plan: I already kind of started on this habit without realizing I was doing it. I had been fighting this habit because I felt that it constrained me (I love to go barefooted). However, when I have put my shoes on I am more productive and have seem to have more energy through the day. I recently realized that if I wait until after breakfast to put on my lace up shoes I still have a productive day. And since I have some time to go shoeless every day I feel less restricted. Win-win. Now I just need to carry on doing this to make it a habit!
