The One a Day Challenge

For those of you who follow me on the social media platform of your choice I’m not referring to my (attempted) daily post of something interesting. Instead this is a little challenge I dreamed up and considered a while back, but finally decided to do the month of June. Being the type who likes confirmation before proceeding, I’ve been following the challenge with great success since the beginning of the month so now feel comfortable talking about it.

So you’re probably asking by now, what is it? Simply put, pick something (or in my case 3 somethings) that you want to limit to 1 or less a day. The 3 that I picked are…

1) No more than 1 cup of coffee a day
2) No more than 1 alcoholic beverage a day
3) Spend less than $1 a day directly on myself (primarily eliminates “fancy coffee” and numerous non-brown bag lunches)

Why do I do these things? Primarily to keep myself sharp and to help build willpower. Plus, I like a challenge of my own choosing.

So what about you? Have something you’d like to challenge yourself to limit to 1 or less a day? Tell me about it in the comments below.
