Bisi and Toby are good friends.

#2 son got home safely and we had some time to talk. We had some trick or treaters, too, and I enjoyed them. My husband and I had some quality time together and #1 son and I got the editorial calendars done for just about all the clients. My record for the Rich Habits:

  • Exercise aerobically 30 minutes a day, 4 days a week.
  • Track your eating.
  • Eat less than 300 calories of junk food per day.
  • Avoid fast food
  • Floss daily.
  • Sleep at least 7 hours a night.
  • Set daily goals, in writing.
  • Spend 30 minutes each day reading for self-improvement.
  • Do everything in moderation.
  • Think before speaking.
  • Work toward developing relationships every day.

Thus far, all I’m really having to work on is laying off the sweets. Most desserts are over 300 calories, so while having dessert each day doesn’t seem immoderate, it does mess up the Rich Habits. Smaller desserts may be the solution. šŸ™‚ Tracking meals? I just have to do it.

However, this new list of the Rich Habits to work on doesn’t seem very inspiring or enriching:


  • Track your eating.
  • Eat less than 300 calories of junk food per day.

I also know that good habits can easily fade away if I don’t continue to work on them.

The CD which actually made the Rich Habits seem appealing had this list of things to do for 30 days:

1) Clarify and write down your long-term goals.
2) Read success materials for 30 minutes a day.
3) Listen to success materials while you drive or are mobile.
4) Less than an hour of TV a day.
5) More than 7 hours of sleep a day.
6) More than 30 minutes of vigorous exercise (not walking) 4X/wk.

Not walking?
