Key Quotes:


“I became fascinated with habits after my own personal challenge of a year of monthly resolutions in 2015 which lead to many positive shifts in my daily life that I am working really hard to maintain.” -Jenny

“I want to be a better human being, to create consistency and discipline in my world.  I also want to inspire you to take up the challenge with me so that my adventures may be helpful to others” -Peggy

“I’m looking for a way to stay engaged with the power of habits and share my excitement with others that might be curious” -Jenny

“You can expect that I’ll occasionally resist, I’ll mess up and I’ll downright fail.  I am a human and this is what happens.  If it was easy, everybody would do it without any problems.  If you are playing along, expect that this will happen to you too.  The beautiful thing is we can help to pull each other back up, give each other a kick in the pants and get back after it” -Peggy

“You can expect me to get overly excited about topics related to planning organization and all things self improvement.  It will be nerd heaven.” -Jenny
