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:
Replaced Coffee with 100 Cups of Tea.
Was so busy, I didn’t even think about coffee. Or this test for that matter. No notes from Day Three.
No coffee. I’m obviously amazing. I gave up coffee cold turkey. Everything is possible now!
Almost a week!
No coffee at breakfast is getting easy. Everything will be easy now!
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!
50 sit-ups is hard, but doable.
50 sit-ups. Done!
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!
Sometimes even Olympic athletes take two rest days!
50 sit-ups really means 50 times sitting up, so I’m sure I did that at least 50 times today.
Why did I decide to do this?!?!
Ok, I’m a superstar. I not only did my 50, I did 51!!!
Did 49, I did an extra one yesterday.
Should I be noticing something different by now?
A 50 second plank counts.
Walked 50 steps, it counts.
Sat for 50 seconds and thought about my abs, it counts.
Laid in bed for 50 extra seconds and thought about abs. That counts too.
Abs looks same. Stopping stupid experiment.
I Used Coconut Oil on My Hands for 30 Days and This is What Happened!
This is super greasy, but ok.
I smell like a macaroon.
Hands are definitely greasier!
Can I still cook with the jar of coconut oil I’m dunking my hand of questionable hygiene in daily?!?
Ummmm…. Random dogs on the street keep trying to lick my hands…
Laundry day! Why do all my clothes have finger print grease stains on them?
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!
This is awesome. This will be so easy to do for 30 days. I can’t wait to see how much my life transforms!!
Why are there still dishes from four days ago in the sink. Oh well, off to nap.
Why are there still dishes in the sink from five days ago. Oh well, off to nap.
When did I shower last….
I can’t answer that email yet, cause I need to nap. It’s for science.
Why are there still dishes in the sink from seven days ago? I’ll get to them after this nap.
Napping is amazing!!!
I have no clothes. I’ll nap in between laundry cycles.
I have to nap ’cause I was up until 4:00am doing 11 days worth of laundry and dishes.
I did all the things yesterday, so I deserve a nap!
Up until 2:00am catching up on work ’cause I napped for 2 hours yesterday. Napping today but only for 10 minutes.
Nap was 3 hours yesterday, so can’t nap today, too much to do.
No nap. Still catching up on jobs.
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!!
Baby stopped napping. Shit.
