30 Day Challenge

I'm all about challenges to better myself. Whether it's the challenge to drink more water, or be kinder, or wake up 30 mins earlier every day for a month (that's what the challenge is this month), I'm there. I usually have more than one that I'm working on simultaneously!
I follow religiously and LOVE all of the posts/ideas. This month they have a thirty day challenge to wake up 30 minutes earlier than you usually do, to do well...whatever it is you want to do. Some people use the thirty minutes to play with their pups, make amazing breakfasts, or workout. It's fun to search the hashtag #teg30daychallenge on Instagram to see what everyone is up to!

I didn't actually work out if there's not a picture to prove it right?

After missing the first two days of the challenge (oops) I decided to tackle it today. I almost didn't make it. It is so hard to get up even earlier than usual when I know I still have to put in eight hours at work. And it's not like I was just relaxing. No. I was sweating my butt off trying to run a mile. But, I made it. 

Currently, I'm very proud of myself for dragging my lazy butt out of bed and accomplishing a mile before work AND before it rained. Talk about perfect timing. However, that pride is mixed with the feeling of ohmygoshimsotired. 

Keeping my eyes open at work is going to be the next 30 day challenge!


  1. I need to join this I used to get up and run every morning and then I stopped for some reason I cant get up that early anymore...or im lazy.

  2. 30 minutes is all you need to get your day off to a great start! :] // ☼

  3. That's awesome! I should really try this because I'm so bad about getting up in the morning

  4. I definitely need to be getting up earlier! It's HARD, especially when the husband is a night owl and I have trouble sleeping until he comes to bed.

  5. Good for you!! I am just now checking out - looks awesome! I am definitely going to attempt to get up earlier this Summer... and perhaps get up earlier to work out- two birds, one stone, right?! :)

  6. Great idea, I need to start this!

  7. Girl, I love working out! Once you start it you'll want to continue to do it and plus you'll want to eat healthier because of it! Good luck! :-)
