I open my eyes and grab my phone to check the time and check-in on Twitter. That is the beginning of my morning routine. However, in the past 3 months my morning routine ended there. I have “fallen off  the wagon”. But yesterday, while checking Twitter, I stumbled across a post from Cindy Minnich describing the #nerdlution invitation and her #nerdlutions. #nerdlution is like a resolution-set a goal and Tweet your progress using the hastag #nerdlution for 50 days beginning December 2.

As soon as I read her post, I knew I was in! I, too, was accepting the invitation because as I have stated above, I have “fallen off the wagon”. I need the challenge of publicly stating my goals and being accountable to a community of supporters to help me get back on the wagon. So here are my #nerdlutions:

  • Exercise-I love to walk,however, it is cold now and I don’t like to be cold. But when I exercise I feel so much better…about life, work, family and friends. I am a better person when I exercise. Actually, after reading Cindy’s blog, I did 30 minutes on the elliptical! Go me!!
  • Writing-I am working on a book with a colleague and need to write everyday. Now, I know this is what I need to do, but, being the slacker that I am, I put writing off until the last minute. Then I am stressed to get the work done. The pressure of having to post my progress daily will get me going.

I am going to stop at two #nerdlutions! My nature is to bite off more than I can chew and then I have to let something go. I know that these #nerdlutions are very important to me and I do not want to do anything that will jeopardize my ability to accomplish them, so I am going to stop at two. After the 50 days, I can take on new #nerdlutions for the other things I want to accomplish.

Have you “fallen off the wagon”? Do you have something that you want to accomplish in the next 50 days? Accept the invitation! You will be so glad you did :).
