Media Fast

I think I am stuck in a rut and I cant figure out how to claw my way out.
For the past oh.. month or two(give or take a half of a year) I have been getting less and less motivated.
Less Motivated to get out with my kids, Less motivated to clean my house, less motivated to read my books, do my studies and read the bible. I have even had trouble getting motivated to pray.
I think I need a little jump start. I think I also need some accountability. So I am going to do something about it.

Now it is impossible to do a family media fast, because well Dustin would literally fall to pieces without his Internet and Satellite. So I am going to just do it myself.
I will resist the pressure to turn on the tv and instead pick up my Bible. I will resist the urge to cruise Perez Hilton and wondering why I even read that crap. I will instead grab the vacuum or other cleaning item and use it.
So from here on I am only going to allow myself to get on the Internet to blog about my experience.
We will try this for a month and see if I have more patience and energy than I do now. Not to mention a cleaner house, a more rounded spiritual life, more knowledge from reading and better eye sight ;)
So wish me luck and here I go to turn the tv off..

I agree with the internet. It sucks you in and your left looking at the clock wondering where the time went. I try to only get on in the morning and then only allow Ash 2 hours per day also. It's so hard!!!! must get off...... agh.

Wow - I can't wait to hear how this works for you... the internet is about the only fun I can have right now - since it's technically free. It's not, but it's in the budget so I don't have to pay extra.

I do agree though - I spend to much time doing it and not doing the other things I need to be doing... ummmm... like reading the bible, cleaning and working out!
