Now, the moment you've all been waiting for... Wait! What?! You mean no one has been waiting for this?! Wow, well this is awkward now! *DOH*
Well anyways, the moment that *I* have been waiting for. It's almost time to streak!
I am so excited about this! I had an awesome group join me last month for a 14 day streak! The best part was, everyone's streak was different. They thought about what they needed to focus on and they put their plans in motion! Some people are doing so well, they might even still be streaking! I know the point of the streak is not to break it, to have it be a set amount of time with no mess ups, that is the point of the streak. With that said, I make mistakes and mess up ALL THE TIME. I strive for progress not perfection... if I was striving for perfection, I would have given up a long long time ago.
With that said, I think if we set out to do something for 14 days, and we fall short, maybe we did 9 or 10 days (maybe even less).... we are still successful because we are trying something! 9 good days is way better than 0-1 good days! So with that in mind, let's do what we can and push ourselves! If we fall down, we will dust ourselves off and keep on going!
So are you ready to streak?! The goal here is to do a 14 day streak the last 14 days of a given month. So for March our streak will run March 18th - 31st. That gives you a day to think about what you want to work on that needs improvement, or maybe a good habit that you have been doing that you want to keep up with! The possibilities are endless. So comment below and let us all know what you are going to do for your streak. I will post a blog on the 1st with my results, and more importantly I hope you will share your results!
My streak has been brought to you by awesome Sparker NANCYTUNBERG64! She shared with me that she would be cutting sodium for her streak, and I had to hop on board! That was such a fabulous idea, and I wouldn't have thought of it on my own.
I have been over my sodium allotment FOREVER! If there is a day where I was in range for sodium, it was probably a day I didn't eat much because I was sick ha ha! I am just looking to be "in range" so anything under 2300mg is going to count! I will say that I am going out to a very late B-Day dinner on the 29th, and that will definitely be an "over sodium" day... but it is planned, accounted for, and I am going to do my best to get 13/14 days!
I am also tacking on an extra habit kicker for my streak... to kick the diet soda habit! Diet Orange Sunkist and Diet Dr. Pepper being on my list of favorites. I don't drink soda when I'm out to eat, just at home. So if I stop bringing it into the house, that solves the problem, right?
So it may not be THAT easy to do, but I am on day 2 of the no diet soda thing, so wish me luck!
