So for January I was thinking about what I should do. It is going to be the first challenge so I wanted it to be a good one. I think one of our most valuable assets is time. Imagine what I could do if I managed my time better. So I thought what do I spend a lot of time doing that is not essential or helpful. My answer.... TV!
January Challenge: No TV
If you know me, you know I love watching tv. I am up on all the shows. I can name all the Real and the Desperate Housewives. I can tell you what happen last week on Modern Family. I can recite lines from Roseanna by heart. So no TV for a month is going to be hard for me. But it just happens too often that once the kids go down for bed I sit down to watch one tv show, which turns into a night of tv with nothing down. Then I get up to a messy house and a cluttered mind. The decision seemed simple... terrifying, but simple. I am about to embark on a month with no TV. Although my hubby and I will still have our home date night which is part of his anniversary present.
I think this is going to be tough for me, but I am hoping it will force me to be more productive and maybe find a better way to unwind and not waste my nights in front of the TV. I will check in every week to let you know how I am surviving and what I am learning. By the end of 2013 hopefully I will feel more in control of my life.
If you are so inclined you can join me in taking back 2013 and getting in control of our lives. It doesn't have to be a month with out TV, although I would love some support. Just let me know what you are doing or if you have any idea for next months challenge for me. I will write weekly updates just to keep you post on my progress (but mainly to keep me committed and honest about the whole thing.)
So January.... A month with out TV.... Whatever with I do?
Stay tuned to find out.
