My friend, Tania, and I decided that we were going to work on some projects together to try and have someone to hold us accountable.
One of the things we decided to do was a book challenge. I love books but I've noticed that I keep picking up my iPad to play games instead of reading a book. If you're on Goodreads, you know they have a 2014 challenge you can join, which will make the tracking part very simple.
If you are still searching for some way to change your life in an easy but awesome way, check out this Lifehacker post. It has seven 52 week challenges. I'm going to try two of these ... the Organized Home Challenge and the Money savings one. One of the tips I picked up from the comments for the money one was to try going backwards or alternating between a low money week and a high money week. Another person recommended starting in August so that you aren't strapped for cash during the holidays.
I also found a cool challenge on Pinterest that is basically meal planning your brains out and then spending only $25 at the grocery. Here is the link to the actual site. The idea is good if you are already in decent shape, exercise and have some sense of portion control. I'm not the ideal candidate. I am trying the less meat a week bit so we'll see how that goes.
If you're reading this because you like my crazy and have the perfect life, cheers to you :D
