12 Habits for 2013 {September Recap}


12 Habits for 2013

January’s habit was:  Daily Bible study.
How I’m doing:  I’ve been pretty faithful with this during September.  And I can tell — it’s making a difference in my life.

February’s habit was:  Exercise daily (even if it’s just 10 minutes).
How I’m doing:  I missed two days in September… I can live with that!  You can read more about it here.

March’s habit was:  Drink 8 – 10 glasses of water daily.
How I’m doing:  Still doing great with this one.  It’s my preferred drink now… well, other than coffee.  But I believe I may have mentioned that before. 🙂

April’s habit was:  Be early or on time for everything.
How I’m doing:  I’ve been doing pretty good with this habit.  It does make it a challenge to be on time when you’ve got a couple of kids in tow, but it is possible!

May’s habit wasLess procrastinating, more doing!
How I’m doing:  I’m sure this will always, always be an issue I have to guard against.  But more often than not I take the “just suck it up and do it” approach now… it seems to work for me!

June’s habit wasPlan and incorporate a morning routine.
How I’m doing:  We’re doing pretty good with our morning routine.  Unless Mommy is sick, and then all bets are off.

July’s habit was:  Plan and incorporate an evening routine.
How I’m doing:  After I got a new dishwasher towards the end of the month (after having been without one for a few months) my evening routine got a lot easier.

August’s habit was:  Eat a healthier diet.
How I’m doing:

September’s habit was:  Get dressed to the shoes each day.
How I did:  This is one habit I feel like I’ve embraced and will continue.  I can’t think of a single day that I didn’t get my shoes on… the “getting dressed” part may have consisted of yoga pants and a tank top, but at least they were clean clothes.  That totally counts.  🙂

October’s habit will be:  Declutter 15 minutes a day.
My plan:  I really need to get a handle on this.  Not that I have a gross and cluttered home, but because I don’t want it to become one.  (Ok, sometimes it may be a bit gross.  But cleaning is a never ending battle too.)  So if I can just take 15 minutes a day (or even 5 tiny minutes three times a day) to stop the chaos before it really starts I’ll be in better shape.  I suspect 5 of those minutes will be spent in the office everyday…
