Yep, yep…it’s that time!! For all of you brave souls who took the Good Life Challenge it’s now time to fess up and tell us how you did!! And the person that WE think had the most success (which doesn’t necessarily mean completing the most number of things….but it is so much more about what you LEARNED about yourself in the process!) will win a free seat to the Spread the Love of their choice!
So how did *I* do? Read on to see!
Get 8 hours of sleep 3 nights in a row
First thing I thought: I totally need this!!
How I did: I did it!! Of course a lot of that may have had to do with ALL the cold medicine I’m taking since I’m getting sick :(….but I did it anyway. And it was great! My body definitely needed some catch up rest! It was all, “why don’t we do this all the time??”
Cook a real dinner like you’re on the Food Network
First thing I thought: hmmm…does frozen Kashi pizza count?
How I did: Check! Salmon stuffed with crab meat over a bed of baby spinach, to be precise.There was wine, there was garlic, there was Legend. We DID stop in the middle to book a wedding, but I figure that’s just icing on the cake! :)
Take a shower and go through the whole process of getting ready. Put on REAL clothes
First thing I thought: what are real clothes?
How I did: This was a HUGE one for me considering I live most of my days in yoga pants. I did manage ONE day to pull off the getting ready process from start to finish, without interruption. But as for the other nine days….well let’s just say me & multi-tasking are gonna have to sit down and have a talk.
Start the day with one half hour of quiet
First thing I thought: I know I should do this….why don’t I do this everyday??
How I did: The days that I did this were SO different from the days that I didn’t. The whole day through! I just felt calmer and less overwhelmed and better about everything. Like I had it all under control. Which of course left me thinking “I KNOW I should do this….why don’t I do this everyday??”
For just one night go to bed in a peaceful environment
First thing I thought: Wait, no Fraiser re-runs at 1 o’clock in the morning??
How I did: You win some, you lose some. And on the ONE night i did this I got more rest than all the other nights combined.
Start the day with 25 crunches
First thing I thought: ugh…I HATE the Good Life Challenge :)
How I did: This one as it turns out was super easy…which of course leads us back to the question: Why don’t I do this all the time?
Final analysis: Like I said at the beginning….I’m a work in progress. But, hey, at least I’m working on it! :)
Soooo…how did YOU do???
