The 30 Day Challenge

Well, the 30 Day Challenge has ended without fanfare. My goal you may remember was to go compulsion free on the neighbor's garbage cans. Did I succeed? Kinda, I guess. I certainly did better than the early days when I put one of their garbage bags in my can to ensure that it would get collected (and got busted doing it, no less!)

I still expend more brain power thinking about garbage than I want to, but I'm getting there.

My next "no compulsions" goal centers around my fear of getting sick and passing along the illness to others at inconvenient times. My boss is on vacation next week, and I worry about being sick before she goes. But I'm not changing my schedule or plans in any way to try to keep healthy.

How about you? How'd your 30 day challenge end up?


  1. Congrats to you! And good for you to start on another no compulsion goal.

    I did OK with not checking the light in the closet. I did a couple of times out of habit, but quickly closed the door. But that wasn't one of my bigger compulsions, so I have bigger ones to slay.

    Thank you for encouraging us to join you in the challenge!

  2. Still working on my "hit and run OCD" 30 day challenge for another week. I was out of town for a week and didn't drive at all so I have to make up for it. Some of it has been good, some not so good. I have looked in my rear view mirror a bit compulsively, though I'm fighting it. Until this 30 day challenge I had absolutely no idea how much I was checking my rear view mirror. If nothing else, this challenge has made me very aware of something new. I'll let you know next week how it continues.
