I have a 2 year old. "No" is an all too familiar word in our home.
Here she is in all her cute glory, she looks like such a sweet heart right?
This morning, like many others was full of "no's." No, I do not want my shoes on. No, I do not want to help you pick up my breakfast that I just spilled all over the floor. No I will not sit in time out. You get the picture right? I love her dearly though, and 99% of the time, she's a pretty good kid. I might be a little biased, but I digress...
This week, I'm taking a positive twist on "no". Each day this week, I'm putting into place a new "no." And here is how it is all laid out...
Monday - No processed foods. This was the start of an attempt to completely eliminate processed foods from my diet, so far doing ok with it. Aside from energy drinks, do those count?
Tuesday - No internet (at home.) I have to be on it at work....
Wednesday - No TV. Ok, so I probably can't stop my hubby from playing video games. But Wednesday nights will be no tv shows or movies.
Thursday - No spending. Yup, that's right. I challenge myself to a day of no spending. No stopping for coffee, no going out for lunch or running to the grocery store after work for a few last minute things for dinner, etc.
Friday - No chores - no housework. Yup that's right. Friday nights after work will be my night of rest. I've got all weekend to get that stuff done.
Saturday - No watches, clocks, or checking the time. Saturday is family time! No set time for being here or there, or doing this or that. Let the day take us where it may.
Sunday - No beverages - except for water. Sounds harsh, right? But if you knew me, you'd know I drink about 4 ounces of water per week, on a good week.
So wish us luck as we proceed through our week of "No"!
Oh, and I've got plenty of room on my sidebar for sponsors in July. Currently looking for swaps and have some guest post openings as well. Send me a message or comment if you are interested.
