DOING

Plant-based: 4/312 days
Exercise: 14/260 days

GaaT: 0/365 blog posts

I read Start by Jon Acuff and Queen of Penny Pitching by Kate Singh

Mini Tweet-Sized Review: Start by Jon Acuff will inspire you to just START down the road to awesome. There are 5 lands in the road of awesome usually dictated by ages 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s+. But this book will help you accelerate the process to get to the next phase quicker. Then you can start again.

The Queen of Penny Pitching doesn’t deserve a review.

LIMITING

(the habits I want to stop or limit)

No Spending Extra Money

  • We are in the swing of this and going strong!
  • However, we slipped and bought breadsticks one night. NEVER GO OUT WHEN HUNGRY!

No Soda, Chocolate, Processed Foods

  • No soda has been consumed
  • The week before I bought two chocolate bars. Only one has been eaten.
  • Processed foods were kept to a minimum this week!

No Wearing Brandon窶冱 Clothes

  • I’ve been wearing only my clothes. Easy peasy.

No YouTube / Netflix / Streaming Shows and Movies

  • I’ve been streaming tv and YouTube a lot.

Limited Social Media

  • I have not opened Facebook except to message family
  • I窶况e been spending less time on Twitter too. I窶冦 just throwing status updates on there whenever

Limited WiFi On Phone

  • I have failed this week. I kept Chrome and Gmail on my phone with WiFi all week.

I M P R O V E M E N T S

WHAT CAN I DO BETTER?

  • Meal prep a lot of plant-based food to force me to eat them before they go bad.
  • Use an Internet blocker on sites that I stream shows and movies. Remove the WiFi connection from my TV.
  • Disable Chrome and Gmail from my phone for good.
  • I窶冦 only allowed to have wifi on my phone during the morning to sync. That窶冱 it.

U P D A T E S

As you can see from my improvements section above, everything has been copied and pasted from last week because I HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING TO IMPROVE MY SITUATION.

I need to actually take the advice above. No more excuses.

But, this week has been much better. I spent 3 days working and being productive and that is such a good step in the right direction.

I am proud of myself.

So, I need to actually go and take my own suggestions before I forget.
