No Soda November -Day 277 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Affirmations

Today I make better choices where it counts for my life!
Today I sacrifice a little to improve a lot.
Today I accept the challenge to better myself and better my life!

Can you believe it? By the end of this week, we’ll be into the final two months of 2019. It’s been a whirlwind year for April and me. We started the year with no idea we’d be leaving Boston. Now a crazy cross-country move and a few months of acclimating back into life in Kansas City have caused this year to be a blur in some ways.

However, I’ve worked hard to keep focused on the goals I set back in January – this blog series and revitalizing The Affirmation Spot among them – and be as conscious as possible, while drinking from a fire hose. I’m sure you can relate!

Let’s finish the year strong together! Dr. Pepper is my coffee. I drink it in the morning to get going and usually with one other meal. That’s too much and I know it. Earlier in the year, I did a successful 10-day moratorium on it. Now, I’m taking the next step.

I’m completely giving up Dr. Pepper and all soda for the month of November. April enjoys a glass of wine at night. She is giving up wine for the month so we tag-team this.

Here’s my challenge to you.

What’s sone thing that you know you shouldn’t be eating or drinking as much as you do? What’s something you’d be willing to join me in giving up for one month to help you close 2019 strong?

I’d love it if you feel comfortable leaving a comment below to share what you’re willing to give up in November. If not, it can be your secret, but I encourage you to make a principled effort to accept this challenge.

Let’s do it together! We’ll be better. We’ll be a little bit healthier. We’ll demonstrate our ability to take control in our lives where it matters.

I’ll be posting throughout tNovember to share progress and insights. I don’t think I’ve gone this long without soda in decades. I’ve got the water and the tea and juice ready.

Our mission all year has been to expand our minds, broaden our vision, and live a better life. This challenge is a tangible way for us to do that!

In case no one else has told you today, YOU ARE AWESOME!

Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
