I just learned about The 37 Day Challenge and will start tomorrow morning. I invite you to do this challenge and would love anyone who wants to check-in/support me to do so. I will probably blog a bit about it and i *know* i will facebook snip-its daily. Here is my contract for myself:
37days challenge March 30 – May 5, 2009
I, Christy Putnam, being of kinda sound mind and body, have willingly decided to try to do one thing consistently every single day for the next 37 days. C’mon, self, it’s just 37 days. The one thing I will try to do every day is this: I will briskly walk on my treadmill (or outside, weather permitting) for 30 minutes each day for at least 37 days.
I’m not going to pick two things or nine things because that will dilute my focus –- just one thing. One. One simple action. An action, not a goal. An action, not a value. An action, not a wish. Something I can DO.
I’m doing this challenge at this time because: Since finding out about my Chronic Kidney Disease and the fact that no amount of fit-ness can change it, I stopped walking and I really need to get fit, regardless of changing my kidney function.
I’ve chosen this particular daily action because I believe if I do it consistently for 37 days with no (NONE, ZERO, ZIP) exceptions, I will: become used to doing it daily and it will become a habit I look forward to.
I also realize that this contract is solely with myself and carries no rewards, penalties or punishments other than those associated with the reflection of the strength of my character.
New things will happen for me.
