January started great for me, but mid month I started to go back to my old habits. We've talked about doing little things. I know what I want in my routine:
- Meditation (God time)
- Food that helps me achieve my goals
- Taking my Advocare MNS 3 Suppliment
Yet, for some reason, I'm not doing all of these and the one that is mind boggling is taking a supplement. Really? how hard is swallowing a pill? The MNS 3 has a few pills you need to take at certain times, and yet at the end of the day, there is always one package I forgot to take with my lunch.
I decided I would write down all of the things I wanted to accomplish each day into the Way of Life app. I was determined and decided I would start on Sunday.
Here it is Monday, and I didn't do it. I was so pissed. Do I need to make a checklist to remind me to use my checklist? UGH! So my initial reaction so that I could get a perfect week (my goal) was to try again next Sunday. Wait, what?
Yep instead of getting on track on Tuesday, in an effort to have a perfect week, I would wait until Sunday to try to get hyper-focused.
I was being poisoned by the thought of perfection. I noticed how this idea made me waste sic days where I could work on improving my efforts. Why wait until Sunday when I can take another crack at this tomorrow? So I did, and I did.
Don't start “tomorrow” or “next week” or ” (insert day/event, etc) you can start improving

Thanks to Josh from www.onthebubblepodcast.comhttp://www.onthebubblepodcast.com and www.punchingsideways.com for recommending the book, “Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones.” You can get this as an audiobook for free by going to www.logicalloss.com/audible
In the book, the author James Clear talks about how little things can add up to big results. Think of it like compound interest with money. This is what inspired me to create my checklist of atomic habits I want to create. I'm only through three chapters and so far I love it.
One easy step you can do is to ask, “What would a healthy person do?” Then do that. Eventually, YOU will be a healthy person. The other thing that really struck me is when we start doing these small steps, in the long run, they can change how we feel about ourselves.
