If you're anything like me, you get super pumped to make lists for the upcoming year, all the ways you're going to improve and change and learn and grow. You're ambitious in your goals and for about a month into the new year, you are a rock solid new person. And then, you aren't. A couple months in, after several "I'll catch up tomorrow," "One miss won't kill me", and "crap, I missed it again" moments, you're back where you started, wondering why you just can't finish what you started!
For 2015, I had many goals and resolutions, most faded out before the year was half-through. But the one that I really stuck with was journaling. Every day. Two pages. Writing anything I want. It wasn't easy. But I finally feel mentally ready to tackle the blog goal that's been on my list for the past 5 years.
So, I'm going to kill two birds with one stone. I love multi-tasking! I'm going to keep a blog for an entire year and complete another challenge, which I'll use the blog to document. I call it my "52 in 52". 52 challenges in 52 weeks. Clever, right? Nope. After deciding on what I wanted my blog to be called, I googled "52 in 52 challenge" and got 694,000,000 hits. I decided I'm okay with that. I have no problem going with the flow if it's a good river. This year, in an attempt to learn more about real food and healing my gut, I'm going to make 52 sugar/dairy free dressings or dips in 52 weeks to spice up ordinary salads, wraps, and fresh fruits/veggies.
I'm also going to TRY and make some additional posts besides the one a week documenting my challenge to keep updated on my other goals and resolutions.
I'd love for anyone who decides to follow me to leave me comments and suggestions for challenges, and maybe join me on this adventure! Having accountability from friends and peers can be a huge motivator for avoiding the February Flake.
I know keeping up a blog is going to be a big challenge for me. I'm looking forward to it. Gotta start somewhere!
