Admitting a Wrong Decision
Saturday, October 10, 2015
When I joined the 5% Challenge, I was hoping that following the LTGL challenges, tracking my exercise minutes (which I do anyway for a different site), and participating in chat and challenges would really motivate me.
I know we're only two weeks in and it's been an abnormal two weeks for me, but ... it's not. I'm not chatting, partly because I'm having enough trouble keeping up with the chats on a different site I frequent, and partly because I just don't have much to say. I post my exercise minutes when I remember, but I'm sure there are days I've missed. I haven't really cared at all about the LTGL challenges ... even the water one, which is normally super easy for me (I regularly have 8-10 cups a day), I rarely reached the goal.
Ultimately, I think the 5% is a great challenge. I've enjoyed it a lot in the past. But I think it's not for me right now. Maybe I can go back to it when I'm less distracted and can remember to post. But for now ... I'll try to remember to post every day, I'll do the best I can, and that's it. In doing this challenge, I made the wrong decision. It happens sometimes. I'm glad I tried, because if I hadn't I'd still be wondering if I should have. But I think it's an unsuccessful experiment (for now).
