The first started January 1. I'm going on a spending hiatus. I've allowed myself $100 in spending money for them month. That includes any money for going out with friends, any eating out, MUNI fares, basically anything that I don't *have* to buy! So far, I've spent $7.00 on a burrito and taquitos (I was out with the family, but still didn't think that I needed to buy it) and $6.56 on carrier oil for some essential herbs. Neither were necessary and now, I'm slightly worried that I'll not have enough for the next few weekends. You see, I'm going to the Yoga Journal Conference next weekend and to a meditation retreat the following weekend. To make it through this challenge, I'll have to bring food from home AND refrain from buying stuff. Argh! What was I thinking?
The second challenge started today. I'm participating in the 21-day yoga challenge from Yoga Journal. I went online tonight and tried to watch the first sequence. Unfortunately, it was taking forever to load, so I abandoned it and did a short sequence from a Cyndi Lee book that I have checked out from the library. It felt like cheating because I know I didn't challenge myself. But, I did practice for 15 minutes.
If anyone out there is reading this, did you give yourself any challenges this January? How's it going?
