Join Us for a Month of Motivation

June 25, 2006 @ 11:08 am | Filed under:

Jenny over at Big Slice of Life, Small Slice of Cheesecake is launching a project called Month of Motivation. Jenny’s goal: to lose ten pounds before the BlogHer conference. Stop by her blog and cheer her on!

Jenny is inviting others to join her in spending the next thirty days (starting Monday, June 26th) working toward a goal in daily increments. I’m game. What I need motivation for: a grand household decluttering. Closets, dressers, bookshelves, the works. Jenny’s right in understanding that publically announcing a project like this can help keep you committed to the work. If my enthusiasm flags, you’ll all know it. Eek.

I think what I’ll try to do for this thirty days is post a picture every day of any boxes or bags of Stuff I’ve managed to part with. I’ll make a sidebar photo album for the purpose. Ooh, just thinking about this makes me shudder. No, really, I can do it. I’ll do the FlyLady thing and set a timer for 15 or 20 minutes of decluttering every day. Starting tomorrow, because today is a day of rest.

How about you? Care to join us? Got a project you need to undertake? Or maybe it’s your goal to read poetry every day, or to make weekly menus and follow them, or to pray a daily rosary, or to listen to a particular symphony until you know every note. Leave a comment here or on Jenny’s blog with your goal for the Month of Motivation. We can all egg each other on.

    Count me in as I declutter our book and curriculum collection. 🙂 You’d think that I’d be rather naturally roped in to getting it done before the end of July, but … well, let’s just say I could write an entire curriculum in procrastination. 😉 Committing to the next 30 days ….

    Count me in too. I’m organizing the desk in my kitchen, including the FILES. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Thanks for posting this.

    I’ll be rooting for you and looking for helpful hints. We are drowning in clutter over here, and we donated ten garbage bags of clothes and toys to charity just last month.

    I guess it’s time for me to commit to decluttering my bedroom over the next month, or be committed myself. Okay. I’m in.

    I’ll join in too! Hope I’m not too late. My goal is to exercise with my kids! Baby is 9 mos. old now and its time for me to get back to my former self!
