My 28 Day Challenge


The first......



-Don't touch the cartilage piercing for 28 days.  I have the "Forward Helix" piercing that I got last August.  I love it, but I'm obsessed with playing, touching, or turning it everyday.  If I'm talking on the phone, watching TV, or reading your blog I find myself subconsciously taking my hands up to that ring and fiddling with it.  There are consequences for playing with your piercing, an inflamed and irritated ear.  I'm trying to break myself of this habit so for 28 days I'm not allowing myself to touch that silver ring.

The second.....


-Add spinach, romaine lettuce, or kale to my smoothies.  Thanks to my girl at runtothefinish and the green smoothie challenge I've decided to include more green leafy vegetables into my morning smoothie.  This morning I had my own recipe of including green spinach to my smoothie.  The estimated calories for this breakfast smoothie was 360.  Looks gross but it was delicious!!! 

Green Protein Smoothie
-1 large handful of organic Spinach
-1 organic apple
-1 scoop muscle milk light
-1 cup 2% organic milk
-1/8 cup oatmeal

Since I am ALL about the veggies these days I must try it. My family will think I have lost my mind for sure :)

My motto is if it tastes good, eat it! not sure about THAT though ;-) Now, if you put some gin in there... ROFL...

Missy said...

YOU ARE LYING...nothing that looks like that can taste good. I think my dog did that on the carpet yesterday...grrroossss.

I'm with Wes (except Bourbon Please) :-0

woot woot, let's hear it for the greeness! Hmm haven't been adding any protein, maybe I should... though they are snacks for me so i want to keep the cals kinda low

I've been sooo tempted to try these veggie smoothies. They look pretty yum.

I just got my cartilage pierced last weekend!! I don't play with it.... yet haha. It's healing nicely though!

O, I think I'm with Iron Missy on this one! That stuff looks like I tried to "enjoy it" about an hour ago, but it was too much "enjoyment" for me to keep down!

Marcy said...

LOL thanks for posting that diagram! I had NO idea!

My wife has the helix and has been known to fiddle with it (along with the various earlobe ones). Sure does make healing a lot slower..

I am so glad she's not the only one. :)

I don't think i could force myself to drink something that looked like that. LOL

Good luck with your 28-day challenge! My downfall would be when I'm sleeping, for sure. My husband says I do all sorts of things I have no idea I do (or so he says ...).

teacherwoman said...

Geez, everyone is talking about these green smoothies... hmm...

Nicole said...

I think you should get all those piercings posted in the diagram then take the challenge! Good Luck with the challenge, but knowing you and how you like to pick, doesn't look good for ya! LOL

I have found that it takes about a month to break bad habits or make good habits, so hopefully it works for you.

morgan said...

you are not putting ALL those holes in your ear are you? although, perhaps it would help me...

thanks for the recommendation on the headphones - I've never tried the ones behind your head. They don't look so comfortable though - what do they feel like? AND, I've only tried spinning once and it left me with feelings similar to running. The instructor had to get off his bike and assist me with my foot pedals 3 times. it was mildly embarrassing to say the least...
