Day 121?

Yesterday I achieved 120 days in a row of doing a certain WebWhore task. Not to be confused with the thing I've blogged about abstaining from for 120 days. This one I'm recording as an accomplishment today is an active daily achievement of actually DOING something, as opposed to NOT doing something. I considered giving myself a day off from it, but I don't want to break my streak. I like doing it! And I love the number...

Since then I’ve been looking out for other “gritty” things I can do. Stuff that is rough on my skin. Stuff that I kind of grit my teeth to try and get through, especially stuff that is physically challenging. Opportunities to engage my whole body or at least be aware of it in a different way. Like finishing off my shower with a few minutes of cold water, but NOT calling back a bill collector or other sedentary tasks. Switching gears is hard for me. I have a very difficult time transitioning from one task to another. Even when I switch from one sedentary task to another sedentary task, it definitely helps (but adds more of a gritty challenge) to PHYSICALLY switch things up. To move my body in between the task I am finishing and the new task I hope to...
