I had some really good news today which is going to really affect my lifestyle and its habits. My position at work will formally change from Housekeeper to Private Household Manager, at my request. My hours will increase to 8:30am-4:30pm and my salary will increase also. I am likely to improve my uniform to a formal suit rather than a cleaning tunic and take on a smarter, more professional appearance. This is from 1st April and all these changes are really going to influence and inspire me. They make me want to be slim and fit so I can look good in my new uniform. More money means I can make more dreams come true. I can honestly say this change is going to majorly influence any forthcoming habits and I am very excited.
NEW HABIT: Budget £75 towards costs to have a annual WordPress plan
I love my blog and believe it is the key to my success. It’s mentally and emotionally therapeutic for me to talk about each new habit and verbally commit to it. It becomes hard to not keep going because I feel like I owe it to the blog. I don’t really mind if no one reads it. Its main role is to be a journal of some sorts, to inevitably be an account of my success when I can look back on how I beat my lifelong procrastination. I blogged before, during my first test-drive on the path to perfection and had amazing success. I think I introduced new habits for about 4 months. It did fold eventually and I can’t really recall why but I do remember that I was a little rigid and introduced certain habits that I wasn’t quite ready for. I even deleted it after months of a return to procrastination. It got to the point where I couldn’t fix my problem again without erasing the blog’s existence. This time, I’m choosing the habit of the day based on what is presenting itself as the most important or the most pressing. There really is no point trying to do habits everyday that feel futile.
My blog is important and I want it to have a decent domain name and to be advert-free, to increase my chances of it being followed and if it did become successful, then at least it seems somewhat professional.
I don’t really understand the plans you can purchase and they’ve been going on about changes that are coming up. When the annual subscription arrives, the expense is always a little unwelcoming. I figure that if I budget £75 a year for it, when the times does come, I am ready for it.

NEW HABIT: Post a blog update every evening
I can’t believe I’m nearly sixty days into my commitment to follow the path to perfection. I feel like I’m really getting into the swing of it and there is so much to look forward to. If I keep going I will end up creating habits that really make a difference to my life.
Before I move on to the next habit or task I must get this obvious habit out the way now that I’ve found my rhythm.
I like to post once a day about a new habit, a habit break, a task, an update or when I level up. The evening is the opportunity and eventually I think I’ll make it an after dinner habit. For now, I commit to posting once a day as long as there is the opportunity to.
Saturday is an exception because there is sometimes an extra post about my weigh-in from that morning.
