Pills are good. Pills are goooood.

January 2, 2013

It’s the first day of Healthy Habits January! (I know, this is so boring – other people’s basic needs always are – but hang in there. It will get better soon. I promise.) Since it’s fun and ego-boosting to cross things off a list, and studies (no, I don’t have citations) prove that if your goals are too abstract and unmeasurable you won’t do them, I made a daily checklist of quantifiable goals. What are they? Oh, I just happen to have them right here.

  1. Get 8 hours of sleep. It’s pretty much my life’s dream.
  2. Drink 60 oz of water. I’m in a constant state of dehydration because I hate peeing all day long. Grrrr.
  3. Take my vitamins. I don’t like taking pills. I just don’t. Yes, I need to get over it.
  4. Exercise for an hour. This also means convince someone to watch the chilluns for an hour. It’s harder than you think.
  5. Write three pages or 30 minutes in my journal. My brain needs the most help of all.

I was thinking of adding something about eating better, but I anticipate that that will happen organically if I do all the other things on the list. Right? Plus, five is a nice, not too overwhelming number, so I’m going with it. In fact, I’d like Brian to get up so that I get started on #1 and go back to sleep. Good times.
