30 Day Challenge.............8 months later.....

Last summer, I set up myself up with all sorts of goals.  Goals to read my bible daily.  Goals to blog daily.  Goals to walk daily.  Goals to detox my diet for 30 days....

I love goals.  I love writing them down.  I love posting them for the world to see.  I love starting them.

What I don't love, is not finishing what I start.

...and I do this...A LOT.

I can however,  proudly say that last summer I ate "clean" for 30 days.  Eating clean for me meant giving up caffeine, sugar, white bread and rice, gluten and all processed foods.  I was so proud of myself.  I looked better.  I felt better.  I acted better.  I was nicer.  REALLY.

The problem is on day 31 I went back to the old eating habits and haven't looked back yet.

Today, my first official day of summer -- meaning no office work until the kids go back in August and I have already set up my new summer goals.  I hope I can finish them. I really want to.  I know I can.  I just have to put aside "time wasters" and focus!

Today's post takes me back to June 2013 -- specifically Day 18 of the 30 day blog challenge.

Name the TV show I am addicted to.

This one I don't even have to put any thought to.  Seriously!  I have all sorts of TV shows I am addicted to.  Thanks to Netflix, I have favorite TV shows that are no longer running or that anyone remembers.  My family will tell you I get much too attached to the characters of my favorite shows.

Also, I'm not ashamed to say I cry when each one ends.  What can I say?  I appear tough as nails on the outside, but I am a crier.

These past few months I have watched every episode of:

Breaking Bad
Friday Night Lights
Ugly Betty

Notice I said EVERY episode in the past FEW MONTHS.

No wonder I don't finish my goals.  I am too attached to Walter White, Tami Taylor, Olivia Pope and Betty Suarez.

I was just about to start House of Cards, but I think I'll put it on the back burner.

On hiatus until my next post....
