March into Spring

It's that time again! Can you believe February is over already?

So here are March's resolutions:
1. Pay only in cash. Now for me, I'm going to still pay rent and those bills that are automatically deducted as I normally do. However, those everyday purchases are going to be paid for in cold, hard cash (or in change.)

2. I am going to read two books during the next 31 days. I oftentimes decide it would be easier to watch TV than to read. Not this month. Booky-wooks will be my friend. The books I'm going to be reading are Die Trying by Lee Child (disclaimer...My buddy Tom let me borrow this book about four months ago but I haven't given it the time) and Travelling Mercies by Anne LaMott.

Are you in? Maybe one of these tickles your fancy? Maybe both? Neither? Let me know!!!

Water's my friend in Two-Thousand Ten

Photos everyday? Who needs 'em? I have failed miserably at taking a photo of something meaningful every day. There...I admitted it. How have you done? Any success? Has it taught you anything?

I have been drinking water like a champ. I have gone two weeks without a sip of anything but H2O. It's been pretty awesome and I can report I've had no headaches.

How have February's resolutions been treating you?

8 Crazy Nights

So I've done the water thing for about 8 days (save one half glass of Diet Coke during the Super Bowl.) Let me say that this headache sufferer has not had a headache in the past week except for one when I hadn't eaten for a while. I find myself drinking way more water than before. I fill my Camelbak up 3 or 4 times a day. I also find myself eating less. So maybe there will be way more benefits than I realized.

The photos of something meaningful have been way harder to come by. The idea behind this resolution was to take time to see the things around us that are meaningful. Unfortunately, I let most of the day get away from me before I remember to take a picture. So if you follow That's What She Said you've seen the photos I've taken. Enjoy.

Drink Up!

How's the water going? I've found it easier than I thought and I also find myself drinking way more water. I also noticed that I don't eat as much. This could be good all the way around.

I've posted 4 days of photos on That's What She Said. If I am being honest, this has been a hard one. I often times forget to take the pictures. But I think if I keep at it, I'll be good.

How about you? Tell us about it!

So how's it going?

Day 1 is down. I posted my photo of something meaningful on That's What She Said. I was so tempted to drink a glass of apple juice this morning because I bought some last week at Trader Joe's forgetting that this week is February. So there's that. But I am water only so far. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to crave a carbonated beverage at some point in the next few days. And even though I have only been drinking decaffeinated drinks for the past few weeks, I'm suffering from caffeine headaches.

How are you doing so far? If you're taking pictures and are posting them online, where are they? Did you find it hard to think of something meaningful to take a photo of?

Are you feeling any effects of only drinking water? Which of these two challenges is going to be the hardest?
