About 3 weeks ago I got a new book from the library that I need to read for a book club that I am going to attend. It ended up sitting on my night stand for about a week before I even picked it up. Mostly because after the kids are in bed I find myself plopping down in bed and turning the TV on. I do this not because there is all that much on TV that is worth watching, mind you, but more for the mind-numbingness (totally not a word) that it brings along with it. One night after watching "Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami" for the hundredth time I got so frustrated that I turned the TV off. I haven't turned it on (for myself to watch) since. That was two weeks ago.
About the same time I realized that I have been starting to feel sluggish and out of shape. I attribute it mostly to the fact that this summer I have been struggling with this not eating meat thing. Mostly because of poor planning and complete laziness. In doing so, I have noticed a big difference in my energy levels and how my body feels when I don't stick to a mostly vegetarian diet.
I got to thinking...I need something to get me back on track. So, I am going to do a 30-day challenge in the month of September. No TV (except for movies with hubs once a week), No eating meat and I have to get to the gym (at least) 3 times a week.
And trust me I realize that September is the month when all the new seasons of shows start. I have a knack for planning.
Here's to day one.
