It may be a bit early to declare the mini-habits a massive success but I'm an optimistic believer. During the first week of January, I kept up with my bible study, ran 9 miles and managed to write my minimum number of words per night. Thankfully, the nine miles weren't run entirely around the shop, though at least a couple of nights I raced a child or two around the shop and they found this hilarious.
So goals number one and two are totally working. The writing, though, is hard. On more than one occasion, I have dragged myself out of bed at 11 PM to pound out fifty words and crawled back into bed as quickly as possible.
Some theories that I have about my inability to write more than the minimum:
1. I am way out of practice.
2. I would rather read something someone else wrote or (better yet!) look at pictures someone else took.
3. My other two goals tend to take place in the mornings where I put the writing part off until the last minute and the result is pretty lack luster.
I still love January. Hope you are loving it too.
