I've made a decision...but I'm bad at decisions so I may change my mind.
I am not doing Kendi's 30 for 30 challenge this time around. Many people are. I have already participated in three. I learned a lot during those three but feel like I waste most of my closet. The no shopping part is not why I'm doing it. The not using 90% of my closet is why (or mostly why). Then the seasons change and I miss out on a few of my almost favorite pieces.
I really enjoy the hits my blog gets by completing in the challenge but I do not feel that should be the motivating reason to participate.
Instead I'm going to challenge myself in a different way. I have entirely too many clothes in my closet that I have not worn in a long time. Each week I will pick out 7 things I haven't worn in awhile or that I rarely wore but need to wear more and fit it in during the week. I was debating doing 5 since I don't always get dressed out of my pajamas but realized I need to start getting dressed on telecommuting days. A friend suggested 10 but that would involve me picking things that I could wear together and I don't know if that would happen.
I think I'll come up with a name for this but I haven't thought of one yet... some way to use alliteration and the number 7...
Also we'll see how long it takes me to get a weekly weight average 132 lbs or less. I hit a high of 135 the other day. I've been above 132 for a few weeks and that's it so we'll see where it goes. (For comparison, 1 year ago I was averaging 125 lbs.)
