I am about to embark on a completely crazy project, and the only way to do it properly is to put it out to the world so that I have nailed my trousers to the mast (“don’t you mean your colors to the mast?” “No, trousers; that way I can’t crawl back down”)*
I am starting a project that I’m calling “100 Days of All The Things.” From March 1 until June 8, I am committing myself to:
- Go to the gym daily
- Cook healthy meals (except for days when we are specifically going out or doing something that takes me away from the kitchen, but no, “Eh, don’t wanna cook; let’s get Chinese.”)
- Practice Italian
- Journal (and not endlessly about this experience; actual, substantive journaling)
- Do something crafty
I fully expect that by day 2 I will be wondering what the hell I was thinking. But if I can do this, I hope that I will develop some good habits that will stick. I feel like I’m doing too much “drifting” through my days. I want to live more intentionally. I will also continue working, and keeping house, and having time with Ferrett, and walking my dog, throughout this.
And now y’all know. So you can help keep me honest. Wish me luck.
