Try, try again and again


Already four days into my two-week plan on how to change my life, and I’ve run into a few speed bumps. For instance, day one I wanted to eat leftover Halloween candy, yet I committed to a healthier lifestyle. So what? I ate the candy, enjoyed it and recommitted myself. I’m also still trying to get a handle on how many “free” hours I have each weekday—not including work and sleep (eight hours) and how best to use this allotted time. But once I add in everything I need to accomplish (for a happier me and a smooth-running household), I’m left with a total of one hour before I need to get ready for bed. That’s where the weekends come in—extra hours I can use to pick up the slack. I may take a day off from work on occasion, too, to play catchup or one where I can enjoy the fruits of my labor.

What are some of your challenges when it comes to change?
