Last year a bunch of Nerdy Book Club friends started #Nerdlution. A nerdlution is basically just a resolution. I think the “nerd” in front shows our desire to become nerdy about our goal. We can be super nerdy about our books, about teaching, about our families, etc. I think of a nerdlution as a chance to take something that is missing from your life and make it something that you kick butt at. It might be a fitness goal or it could be a writing goal. I’m sure that you have an idea of what you want to work on.
There are two things that I am going to work on for my nerdlution. I’m hoping that after 50 days these two things become a part of my life, and that they no longer are a goal. They are just what I do.
1. Limit my soda intake
I drink a lot of pop. A lot. It would be embarrassing for you to learn how many days I go where the only things I drink are soda and coffee. Yuck. I’ve tried cutting out soda before.
I like soda. I crave soda, so cutting it out completely probably isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
My goal is to limit myself to two glasses of soda a day. One during lunch and one during dinner. No more drinking soda outside of meals.
I can do this.
2. Workout 4 days a week
I’m am doing great with my workouts over break. It’s easy for me to get out and run 3 or 4 miles when I don’t have the demands of my job on my plate.
I’ve had a really hard time working out this school year. During football, I didn’t get home until 6:30 each night, and we just had a kid, so working out the last couple weeks before break was almost impossible.
I know that I can do four days a week. Two days during the week and both weekend days.
I got this.
I hope you’ll think of joining us for this year’s challenge. Set a goal and work the next 50 days to turn it into a habit. We’ll be tweeting about our progress using the hashtag #nerdlution15.
We really hope you’ll join our little Nerdy support group.
Nerdlution starts 1/1/15.
