Are You Ready to Change Your Life?

[Updated March 2nd; changes in dark red.]

At the risk of sounding like I'm selling snake oil, this challenge is seriously changing my life.

In January, before I knew about this challenge, I decided on my slogan for 2011. I don't really like to do New Year's Resolutions because I tend to fail at them.

And then I get depressed.

And then I have to go eat a bunch of chocolate, which makes me fat.

And then I get more depressed. And then...


Better now.

Okay, so my slogan for 2011 is:
If it doesn't change your life, why bother?

Meaning, if what I'm doing doesn't in some way change my life for the better, then it's not worth the time, effort, energy I'm expending. And that doesn't mean it has to be a hugely, life-shatteringly, earth-shakingly awesome change. Just a change. For the better.

And then I heard about and took Chalene Johnson's 30 Day Push Challenge. And it was awesome. Read a tiny bit about what I learned here and here.

I'm taking it again, starting March 1st and as I said before, I can't do anything without turning it into a party. So here we go...

Drum roll, please...

I already signed up - right after reading your first post about it. I have to admit, I am a bit nervous...

I am so ready to make some LASTING and positive changes in my life. Sure hope this works as well for me as it has for you!
