My heart is definitely a nerdy heart because I couldn't help but get giddy at this challenge!  Goal setting?  Check!  A specific period of time to meet that goal?  Check!  Group support by the most encouraging group of professionals out there (I mean teachers and no I am not biased...)?  Check!  Public shaming (I mean, accountability) to keep me focused?  Check!

So...what the heck am I talking about?  NerdLution (although I secretly call it NerdOlution in my head)!  NerdLution is a (dare I say it?) movement where you pick a resolution and work at it for 50 days.  Oh, and you blog and tweet about it - #NerdLution - to keep everyone motivated.  You can read all about how it started on Franki and Mary Lee's blog - or on Colby Sharp's blog or a zillion other blogs I tend to stalk.  The point is, a lot of amazing teacher-people are doing this and the support will be inspiring, motivating and probably hilarious!

My plan:
  • Write for 30 minutes every day.  Every. Day.  Even on days I claim I have no time...I really do.  I want to balance between personal writing and professional writing but that may be a Round Two decision.  Right now, I just need to write!
  • Move for 30 minutes every day.  I might go the gym, walk, take a dance class, whatever, as long as I am moving and exercising!
  • Read (personal reading) for 30 minutes every day.  I can read a lot of professional reading but I always short change myself when it comes to my personal reading...I think it's because as a teacher, my professional reading is both fascinating and quite personal.  But I do miss my historical mysteries!

Alright, so I have said it!  I am in!  Yes, I know that I am a couple of days late.  The old me would have just waited for Round 2.  But the new NerdLution-inspired me is starting right now!
