Are you a rule maker. Someone who says I’m only having one coffee a day and goes about doing just that? Or are you a believer that rules are made to be broken type? It occurred to me the other day when I was talking about my self-imposed alcohol cut down that not everyone is like me.

I know, shocker, right?

I often decide to make a rule about something I’m doing that I’m not overly impressed about. Like drinking too much booze, too many coffees or skipping the gym. I decide what the ultimate is and then slack off on that a bit. Want to give up coffee all together? New rule: One a day max. It goes a little like this with everything.

  1. Don’t bite your nails unless they break first.
  2. Go to the gym at least 3 times a week. More if only running.
  3. Two alcoholic beverages a week.
  4. Don’t hit the snooze button more than three times a morning.

Hold on, when you say it out loud like that I sound like a total weirdo. Am I? Which category do you fit in, if any and are you one of those smarty pants who are normal, middle of the road types?
