I Did Stuff for 30 Days and This is What Happened!

My Facebook and Twitter feeds are currently flooded with titillating headlines of “I Did This for 30 Days and You Won’t Believe the Results!” Well, I clicked on a few of them and learned that simply adding or taking something out of your daily routine apparently will yield life-altering results.  Given the near 100% success of these testimonials, I thought I would try out some experiments of my own.

 

I Quit Coffee for 30 Days and This is What Happened:

 

Day One:
Massive Headache.

 

Day Two:
Replaced Coffee with 100 Cups of Tea.

 

Day Three:
Was so busy, I didn’t even think about coffee.  Or this test for that matter.  No notes from Day Three.

 

Day Four:
No coffee.  I’m obviously amazing.  I gave up coffee cold turkey.  Everything is possible now!

 

Day Five:
Almost a week!

 

Day Six:
No coffee at breakfast is getting easy.  Everything will be easy now!

 

Day Seven:
Coffee at breakfast.  Coffee at lunch.  Coffee at 2am when I couldn’t sleep.


I Did 50 Sit-Ups Everyday for a Month and This is What Happened!

 

Day One:
50 sit-ups is hard, but doable.

 

Day Two:
50 sit-ups. Done!

 

Day Three:
Does 50 everyday, mean I don’t get a “rest” day?  I think I read somewhere that even Olympic athletes need a rest day, so today is that day!

 

Day Four:
Sometimes even Olympic athletes take two rest days!

 

Day Five:
50 done!

 

Day Six:
50 sit-ups really means 50 times sitting up, so I’m sure I did that at least 50 times today.

 

Day Seven:
Why did I decide to do this?!?!

 

Day Eight:
Ok, I’m a superstar.  I not only did my 50, I did 51!!!

 

Day Nine:
Did 49, I did an extra one yesterday.

 

Day Ten:
Should I be noticing something different by now?

 

Day Eleven:
A 50 second plank counts.

 

Day Twelve:
Walked 50 steps, it counts.

 

Day Thirteen:
Sat for 50 seconds and thought about my abs, it counts.

 

Day Fourteen:
Laid in bed for 50 extra seconds and thought about abs.  That counts too.

 

Day Fifteen:
Abs looks same. Stopping stupid experiment.

 

I Used Coconut Oil on My Hands for 30 Days and This is What Happened!

 

Day One:
This is super greasy, but ok.

 

Day Two:
I smell like a macaroon.

 

Day Three:
Hands are definitely greasier!

 

Day Four:
Can I still cook with the jar of coconut oil I’m dunking my hand of questionable hygiene in daily?!?

 

Day Five:
Ummmm….  Random dogs on the street keep trying to lick my hands…

 

Day Six:
Laundry day!  Why do all my clothes have finger print grease stains on them?

 

Day Seven:
Buy new clothes to replace ruined ones from coconut oil.

 

I Took a Nap When My Baby Did Everyday for 30 Days, And This is What Happened!

Why are there still dishes from four days ago in the sink.  Oh well, off to nap.

 

Day Six:
Why are there still dishes in the sink from five days ago.  Oh well, off to nap.

 

Day Seven:
When did I shower last….

 

Day Eight:
I can’t answer that email yet, cause I need to nap.  It’s for science.

 

Day Nine:
Why are there still dishes in the sink from seven days ago?  I’ll get to them after this nap.

 

Day Ten:
Napping is amazing!!!

 

Day Eleven:
I have no clothes.  I’ll nap in between laundry cycles.

Day Thirteen:
I did all the things yesterday, so I deserve a nap!

 

Day Fourteen:
Up until 2:00am catching up on work ’cause I napped for 2 hours yesterday.  Napping today but only for 10 minutes.

 

Day Fifteen:
Nap was 3 hours yesterday, so can’t nap today, too much to do.

 

Day Sixteen:
No nap.  Still catching up on jobs.

 

Day Seventeen:
I will take a NAP!

 

Day Eighteen – Day Twenty:
Naps are great!

 

Day Twenty One – Day Twenty Seven:
Catching up on jobs missed from napping days 18-20.

 

Day Twenty Eight:
Power NAP!!!  I get sleep and I can get things done.

 

Day Twenty Nine:
I’m a genius.  Power napping is the answer to all of my problems. I have finally figured out life!  One more day of power napping and I can honestly say I did something for 30 days and it changed my life!!

 

Day Thirty:
Baby stopped napping.  Shit.
