Long time between blog postings. I don't know where my blog-energy has gone to ... between Facebook, Twitter and games, there just isn't much time for blogging.
Anyway, I have been on a new kick - I have decided that the best way to change habits is to do one small habit a month. Month before last, I decided that the one habit I needed to practice was to remember to wear my pedometer every single day. I've done OK with it - only missing one or two days in three months. I am now trying to add 100 steps a day every week. Eventually I'll be at the 7000 steps that will earn me more Virgin Health Miles.
Last month, I decided to really take care of my rosacea - to do the 20 minutes of care every night to try to get it healed up. It's looking better; not healed, but better. It's a boost to my self-esteem. I finally feel I can go out into the world without wearing a half inch of makeup.
This month I have tried to get on a better sleep schedule. This will also help the rosacea and my energy level - so that I *can* get a few more steps in everyday.
One small step at a time.
Project Order from Chaos helped change habits. By making it a habit to examine all the things in my life (coffee cups to doo-dads to worn-out clothing), I realized I've changed my attitude toward material possessions. I no longer put worthless things aside "for later" especially since later never seems to come.
Well, that's it!
