I came across this 52 week challenge on Life or 30 Something Like it some time in September. So, I decided to wait until the new year to start it. I’ve always wanted to do one of these. I see them on instagram all the time but I always feel like I wouldn’t be able to keep up. I’ve decided to stop making excuses and just go for it. So here it is, week 1 of 52.
Why am I starting this challenge?
Well I already said I’ve always wanted to do one of these challenges but on a deeper level, I want to do this challenge because it lasts the entire year. I want to push myself to do something on my own without quitting. It’s like exercising for me. I want to do it and I’ll be good on day one. I’ll eat well-balanced and proportioned meals, exercise, stretch and do everything by the books. But then day six rolls around and that pizza, my bed, and tv looks a lot more appealing.
I’m taking on this challenge because it’s once a week. I think that’s manageable. I post at least once a week anyway, sometimes more. This challenge is also a great writing exercise. Anytime you have a topic that you didn’t come up with on your own, you push yourself to dig deeper, especially if it’s a topic you don’t want to talk about or have any interest in. I can already tell there will be some difficult topics that I’ll have to put more effort into. I’m excited about this challenge because it’s something I can work for, another goal, I guess. But why take on another goal when I already have so many for 2016? I say why not?!
So let’s see where this take us. I’ll try to post these on Sundays. I welcome you all to join me on this challenge.
Happy blogging and happy new year!
