This is my first blog and the first day of this whole health and fitness journey. I want to change so many things about myself and what I do. I know procrastination is a huge problem of mine and if I can overcome that, all my other bad habits will be a lot easier to change later on.
I procrastinate everyday and I've always have my whole life. I know I can do so much more and learn so many things if I had more discipline and self motivation. I'm the kind of person that has journals full of ideas and things I want to achieve, but never end of doing or finishing any of them, simply because I get distracted and procrastinate, then forget.
I've never had much discipline growing up, my parents never encouraged me or told me to do good in school. When ever I actually did good in something, they never said they were proud of me or told me "good job". I think part of that reason is that I'm the step child of the family, and my real mother didn't know how to be a parent.
Anyways, I'm ready to be my own parent and teach myself discipline. Sometimes I know I'll want to flop on the couch and watch Netflix all day or play Plants Vs Zombies for a few hours, but that isn't acceptable anymore. I need to grow up and learn whats more important in life, and this is my plan to do so.
Do's of this challenge:
*Uninstall all game aps and computer games
*create a spending budget
*Make a "to do" list every day

Don'ts of this challenge:
*watching TV, unless I'm going to be working out to a workout DVD (can watch movies at a theater)
*re installing any games and playing them
*looking at random clothing websites just to "look" -or any other website (If i'm actually going to buy something, then I can)
*Watching YouTube videos (I'm such a sucker for YouTube!)
My Everyday Goals:
*Regularly do Spanish Rosetta Stone classes
*Walk the dogs
*Workout (or have an active rest day)
*stretch/yoga for at least 30 minutes
*Eat healthy (one cheat meal a week)

*Look at my list of things to do if feeling bored or "have nothing to do"
