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 was: Less 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 was: Plan 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…
