Guess who doesn't want to do anymore homework today? This kid, that's who.
Instead of diligently reading my book on the quality of life, I will tell you about my assessment of my own quality of life. We have to create little activities for ourselves throughout the book to help us understand the context better. Genius, I tell you. I totally get it now. (HA.)
The topic of behaviour patterns is examined in this book, so I decided to look at patterns, habits and behaviours I have implemented into my own life. And do you know what it made me realise??
I am kind of a geek.
Yup. That's right. The habits I have changed/developed/scrapped/etc/etc over the past few years have not been drastic or fun or really even blog worthy (yet here I am blogging about them.)
This is me in a nut shell.
In 2003 I decided no more red meat for me. I'll go with chicken. And pork -- the other white meat!
In 2004 I decided I was no longer going to watch TV after 10pm. Still stickin' to that plan.
In 2005 I decided that I was going start having a morning coffee at 10am. Yes, specifically 10am. It took about two months for the extra caffeine in my system to adjust and not affect my sleep. From here stemmed the "no caffeine after lunch time" rule, because it would keep me awake at night.
In 2006 I realized that dairy and I were not friends. I stopped eating yogurt and ice cream. I still dabble in cheese and lactose free milk.
In 2007 I decided to ban myself from the mall. HA! Like that one stuck!!!
In 2008 I decided to join the gym. I stuck to it for almost a whole year! Then I moved to the town with a crappy very expensive gym.
In 2009 I decided to ban myself from the mall again. No such luck.
In 2010 I joined the gym again. And cut out tomatoes. Those red little morsels are good for my soul, bad for my stomach.
Look at that list. Sigh. I am not cool, am I? Or, as my friend Laurie says to me "Wow. You live with a really mean lady!" I am just too strict for my own good. How is this impacting my quality of life???????? Actually....pretty damn well ;) I am a happy lady, albeit, a boring one.
Well, I wrote this faster than I planned. Guess it's back to reading homework....I hope you can think of exciting things you implemented in your life!
