Woah, am I really going to do this?
I am wondering at this very moment if I will regret this and if I will fail. I have been using social media for a very long time now… since myspace and have not had a break..Social media is my everyday routine. It has taken over my life a bit. Sounds dramatic but it’s true. It can upset me, stress me out, make me happy, make me feel wanted, appreciated….etc. but what if I left social media for 30 days. Now, before I continue I do want to add I will still be blogging on here and upload my challenge videos on youtube. Why keep blogging and why keep uploading on youtube? Those sites are the two that keep me motivated at the moment. Youtube, I am now challenging myself and I announce the challenge to my supporters and it keeps me going. example: 200 crunches a day for a week video. (I would have probably quit by now if I wasn’t promising a result video to my viewers lol) but having my supporters there waiting for the results keeps me going and it makes me feel better and accomplished daily while I am doing this…I also will continue with my What I ate today videos because that helps me to eat better and create different meals that would be out of my comfort zone but are healthy for me and helping my lovely friends who are watching to try to get some ideas on how to lose weight as well. (ps. I will not be watching other youtube videos, I am just using yt to upload)
As far as blogging, it’s a diary. I can share food, fashion, lifestyle, parenting ..etc and its therapeutic to be honest. So Youtube will have challenges to push myself in my getting fit journey and blogging will be for me to express my feelings either about my life , or beauty products, or just to upload pictures for myself to look back at. I do have my daughters 7th birthday coming up on Jan 23rd and as much as I would love to post on instagram how I am happy she is 7 and our fun filled birthday celebration for her..I am going to try my hardest to stay off IG, facebook, and twitter. Oh man twitter I honestly think would be the toughest because I loveeeee looking at what is trending lol.
30 days. Maybe I will hop on here to also let you know how it’s going within the 30 days. I plan on organizing more and taking photos of my kids , my family, my experience off social media. I also want to read more books and write (not just type) but write down what I am grateful for and so on. I want to really clean my computer area too lol.
I am excited yet nervous to see this outcome.
I told my husband and my mom so far that I was planning on doing this. My husband said “There is no way you can go without insta and facebook” and my mom said “You are going to be grouchy…why not just try for the weekend?”
See, with me….if you tell me not to do something or I can’t. I do the opposite most of the time. So their responses actually pushed me to do this more and to prove to them that I can do it. If not I will Woman up to it and say “darn it, I failed!” haha ,but let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
So, that being said …(typed) Here I go ..I am about to deactivate instagram, the place where I see the perfect familes, perfect faces with no wrinkles or eye circles, bigger kitchens than my master bedroom, designer clothes, and so fourth. Also, see ya soon facebook and twitter!
Time To UNPLUG!!
