Last week I was in a particularly sour mood and complained to The All-Star that I was feeling uninspired. Being the problem solving kinda of guy that he is, he suggested I do another challenge.
You may remember my last two challenges. The first was my Turning 30 – 30 Day Fitness Challenge, where I had to partake in some kind of physical activity everyday for 30 days. (Yup, that’s how I handled turning 30.) I started off strong with jogging and yoga, but failed miserably due to injury, and laziness.
The second was a 30-day Vegan Challenge in which The All-Star also participated. This challenge was a lot more difficult so it was good to have a buddy. I’m proud to say we were strict with our choices and the challenge was a success!!! And as soon as it was over, I was ready for some carnage (sorry PETA folks – we all have our weaknesses).
I definitely see the benefits of these challenges. Even when I fail, a lesson is usually learned. It keeps my mind focused and I enjoy them…somewhat. So what kind of challenge am I due for this time? I’m really not in the mental position to start omitting things, so it’ll have to be something of addition and, of course, action. I could do something related to the blog but I’m looking for a little more substance.
I’m kinda stumped so I’m turning to you….
Got any ideas? The winner gets do the challenge with me. 😉

LAURA! You amazing woman, I LOVE your blogs. It something that I greatly admire in people who are able to do it, it’s just one of those things that I am not sure I could sit down & commit to every day…
(I LOVE the Morrocan Stew…I have to go search out that veggie slowcooker book!)
Anyway, my suggestion for your challenge: Do one good thing everyday that makes someone else feel good. Totally feasible. Ideas: volunteer to walk dogs at a local shelter, donate to a soup kitchen, buy that homeless-looking guy that walks down the road every day a cup of coffee, go out of your way for someone, do something super-unexpectedly special for your fiance…get creative with it, the possibilities could be endless, but they could also change your perception of ‘living’–for one another. I slipped into too much thinking about my ‘self’ for a while & felt miserable, this mind set helps me sunrise through sunset!
Thanks Lori! Thanks so kind of you to say.
That’s a great challenge idea. I think everyone should try to do stuff like that everyday all the time!! 🙂
