The change I made last month (and what’s next)

Last month, I gave up eating any candy for 30 days (well, 28 days, actually). I have good news and bad. The bad news is that I forgot one night and had a small piece of chocolate. The good news is that I don’t really like chocolate and that’s the only candy I had all month, so I’m going to call it a success. I’ve decided to continue with the change and avoid candy from now on (though full disclosure: I had some this past weekend), BUT I’m going to allow for chocolate once a week. I do enjoy something sweet, but chocolate has never been something I crave.

Since the February change was pretty successful, I was pondering changes to make for March and one of my bad habits stood out far above the rest: movies and TV shows. I tend to watch stuff out of boredom, and it ends up robbing me of my concentration. I’ve actually cut way back from what I used to watch, but just like candy, it’s something that I have trouble stopping once I get started.

So I’m going to cut it out completely.

It just so happens that Lent starts tomorrow on March 9th, so I’ve decided to give up all movies and TV shows for Lent, which runs from March 9th to April 23rd. We’ll see how it goes.

If you made a change last month, post and tell us how it went. And if you’re making a change for March (or Lent), let us know in the comments.
