30 Days

June 1st, 2007 at 04:02 am

I like Morgan Spurlock. He was the guy who made the movie 'Supersize Me' and then the series '30 Days'. If you haven't seen '30 Days' he resolved to do something for 30 days just to see what would happen. Once he and his fiance lived on minimum wage for 30 days then after that he found other people to do 30 day challenges and record what happened.

That's how I got the idea to try to change my life for 30 days--I think it is easier to set goals with a definite end date instead of some fuzzy "forever" date.

Thus, starting tomorrow, I resolve to:
--exercise for at least an hour every day (this is important but I never have time because I am usually so busy with work).
--no Starbucks or Baskin Robbins (I stop at one of these places almost every day for a high calorie whipped drink which actually is a big waste of money and is rapidly expanding my waist line Frown ).
--make a significant dent in my debt (starting point is $18,100).
--make a positive impact in my savings (starting point is $0).
--practice Spanish at least 30 minutes each day (I really need to brush up my elementary level abilities because my job basically requires that I speak Spanish to clients almost every day and there are a whole bunch of verbs in this language and knowing only one form of each verb is not a good thing).

That's it. I hope that reporting here each day will push me to stick to my goals for at least a month. At the end of this I would like to be thin, healthy, debt free, have lots of money in savings and speak Spanish fluently!

    I'm also a fan of Morgan Spurlock and his 30 days! Using that premise for goal setting is a great idea. Good Luck!

    At another site I frequent, they have a monthly "21 Day Challenge" that helps keep you on track. Check it out:

    June's thread has not started yet and I happen to know the Moderator has a family trip planned, leaving today, so she may have forgot.

    These are worthy goals, but how will you work toward reducing your debt on a daily basis? I also like the idea of a 30-day challenge.
