2009… the year of discipline

Maybe it’s ambitious, as it is only Jan 7, but a friend and I are attempting to discipline ourselves in a new way every month. So in January we drink no soda.
Here are some of the ideas we have for upcoming months –
no alcohol
no eating out
no television
no internet (save work related necessities)
no purchasing anything new
no dessert or eating after 8pm.
exercising 5 times a week
no music
getting up an hour early for work everyday

We’d love the company if you’d like to join us. We also welcome other suggestions.

Denying my body the things that it desires helps me to rule my body with my will rather than the other way around. I believe that God created us to rule our bodies with our will. I look forward to the possibility of change in myself and in my friend.

    each day of one month write an email to someone important in your life and tell them how much you appreciate them and why. or each day of one month make one person you don’t know…smile. or once every two days enter a conversation with somebody and work the conversation in a way that they end up telling you their story.

    one time i ate nothing but lucky charms for a week. it was terrible. same theory but the repercussions were less spiritual and more gastrointestinal.
