On the day I ate my frog {part 1 of 52... maybe}

17 January 2012

So today I ate my frog.

This is the first project from the lovely ebook "One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler" by SimpleMom herself (her friends call her Tsh, but I call her "Amazing Lady who Has it all Together"). And I nailed it on the first day! Oh wait, what? You don't eat frogs? Keep reading...

  1. Hey jackandellasmum, I love this post! Brilliant writing that I can relate to. I love the simplemom site and have been wondering about getting Tsh's Organized Simplicity book or the 52 bites book. So I loved reading about that first bite.

    Good for you!

  2. Good stuff! I've only read the 1st couple chapters of this ebook & I'm trying to eat the frog too. Some days I just don't want to!!

  3. Thanks ladies! So Nicole, what's your frog?

  4. This is good stuff and a really good reminder...I seem to keep coming back to just that...just doing it instead of complaining...starting a habit instead of wishing I did...last week I ate the frog of exercising...p90x (no, I'm just kidding, but I wanted to say that because I saw your facebook post yesterday). Nothing special, just exercising every day without complaining about it. I still complain internally, but I know someday I will get to the point where I know the fruit is worth all of the toil...I know this because I have seen it in other areas of my life...so tomorrow, I might add another frog...going to bed at a decent hour. We will see. :) Thanks for the encouragement.

  5. Katie, haha! oh, p90x. I'm intrigued by it, but not at all interested in inviting it into my life. Me and Wii Fit and the ocassional walk to the library are doing just fine! :)
