Day 44 of the M&M Challenge… Before I spill my guts ~ I feel a little self-conscious about this post. I have no earthly idea if anyone will even remotely relate to this. But for some reason, here I am, digressing way too much… Here are my latest, new discoveries: 1. Oh man, it takes a village. A village of apps and notifications, alarms and … Continue reading Day 44/365.
I’ve tried to write this post for five days now, and every time I start, I get lost in a million thoughts. I don’t want these to be too long and laborious, and I definitely don’t want them to be a play-by-play of all the amaaaaahzing things I’ve learned and accomplished ~ brag brag brag, or even worse, all the crap things that have happened … Continue reading Day 34/365.
Rough week for the good ole M&M challenge. M&M’s…I hardly knew ye. I won’t bore you with the ugly details of my week. Let’s just say that I was too sick to lift the remote, so I watched back-to-back episodes of House Hunters International, until I was 100% convinced that packing my bags and moving to sunny Croatia was my only option. I came to … Continue reading Day 22.
Day 15 of the M&M challenge, and here’s what I’ve learned so far: 1. Crossing those four M’s off the list is probably never going to be a routine that looks the exact same way every day for me. My life is so incredibly different every day, and I’m the reason why. I mean, DUH. I’m a musician, an online voice teacher, and a real … Continue reading Day 15
Sheesh! The days are flying by! Each day of this challenge has been totally different. Some days, I accomplish all four M’s like a little soldier, and all before 10am. It’s as if they are the easiest four habits in the world. Other days…well…it might take me all day, or I might not even get one accomplished. But the fact that those four M’s have … Continue reading Day 10.
Day 5 has been ROUGH. Not rough because the M&M’s are hard ~ rough because LIFE IS HARD. And the M&M’s are supposed to help buffer that difficulty just a bit. But it’s pretty hard to get those M’s in when you’re at rock bottom. (Except actual M&M’s, of course). But these wonderful M’s might help you out of rock bottom, Pixy! VICIOUS CYCLE. Anyone … Continue reading Day 5.
Here we go, kids! It’s August 1, and I am so ready. I’m nervous, I’m unsure of myself, and I’m definitely feeling that discomfort that comes just before I say negative things to myself, and quit. NOT THIS TIME! I’m going to push through this time ~ to the NEXT LEVEL! I’m treating this day, August 1st, as a new year. One year of … Continue reading Day 1: M&M’s
Oh friends, I TOLD you. I TOLD you I would add more to the list. The three M’s are about to expand to four. I forgot. Forgive me. I almost didn’t want to bother you all with this, but my friend Liz (Hi, Liz!) just told me she wanted to add an M! Then I thought, “Well, now I’ve gotta do it!” It was a … Continue reading ONE MORE M?
Dare I share this? I am notorious for starting something, blogging about it, and not following through with it. How many Whole 30’s, or Whole 21’s have there been? UGH. I hate not having any follow-through. But here I go again! Back on the horse. Here goes… I’ve been reading Julia Cameron’s life-changing book: The Artist’s Way. I have one more chapter left, and then … Continue reading THE THREE M’S.
Okay, I’ve got an idea. Can I run this by you? What if…instead of focusing on eliminating certain types of food, counting calories, and depriving ourselves of the things we love…we merely ADDED the things that fuel us and make us sing? And if that list is a big list ~ and oh honey you know mine is ~ we would literally run out of hours … Continue reading lightbulb moment: my healthy additions.
