In With The New

Thursday, January 07, 2010

I have always been big (no pun intended...lol) about trying something new...but there is also a limit, due to allergies, on new things i can try...but this year, we are going full throttle ahead...with caution of course...lol. due to finances, i really needed to find a cheaper detergent...but Tide was the only thing i was not allergic to...and knew it...but we had to try...so i got this detergent called sun...soooo much cheaper...and i've been using it now for a week...and love it...no allergic reaction.... hair conditioner is one of my things...i'm picky... but...had to give a cheaper brand a try... i'm learning what i like...and what i don't...this one stuff, General Dollar brand is pretty good stuff..and a keeper in this home :) we have been trying a few new recipes and even one i totally just made up in my own little head.... and you know what...we loved most of them...and the one we were not too keen on...i am thinking of ways of adding other things to make it more tasty.... i also tried a new dish soap (or new to me) and again...loving it...yea...there are things we have tried that...ewwww...won't use again....lol...but you know...you don't know until you try... my goal is to get us to try something new at least once a week, whether a new product or new recipe...or even a new way to get somewhere...or new whatever... it's all about experiencing life, not just going through the motions. Don't know if you don't like something unless you try try try :)

    That's great Kitty, I think trying new things is the way to go, it adds variety and sometimes we find things we like even better than what we were using. I am glad you have been able to find cheaper versions that don't cause an allergic reaction.

Challenges

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Well, yesterdays bonus buddy challenge was to blog about the new buddy challenge... and came home from work with full intent on doing it, to find no internet....uhg. talk about challenge...lol. As for the buddy challenge (in the Losing And Playing team), i will say, it is going to be a challenge...but i think not too overwhelming but enough to keep us interested and to actually challenge us. What a great way to kick off the year also...getting us focused and hopefully, ready to hit the rest of the year with gusto. Now...just hoping the internet comes back soon :)

What I'm Leaving Behind

Thursday, December 31, 2009

Wow...where to start. Ok..first of all...i have been trying to quit smoking now for several months...it's time to say good bye... so that is being left in 2009... my unhealthy eating... i was doing good and got off track..well that is staying in 2009... my lazy self...i've been really bad about being lazy..not exercising and not keeping up with my chores...that stays in 2009...bad debt...yep...that stays in 2009 also... and most importantly...my need to be everything to everybody and to do it all...which is part of the reason for all the rest of the list of things i am leaving behind....

My goals for 2010...
Jumping back into my Flylady routine
Jumping back into my Sparks routine
Making freezer meals-healthier and to save money on buying fast food
To get that hernia surgery i have been putting off for 10 yrs
To ask for help when i need it

    Yes, Kitty that's is a fabulous plan for 2010. Out with the bad in with the new and improved. We can do it this year. I can feel it.

With all that you have had to deal with this past year, to me you are still an amazing Team Leader! You keep me going, you motivate me. I wish you all the best for 2010! May you have success in reaching your goals, may your health improve and may prosperity find your doorstep and stay awhile.

Happy New Year to the best Team Leader! emoticon

    I've been catching up on SP and have read quite a few blogs in which Sparkers are anxious to put 2009 behind them. It hasn't been a very progressive or kind year for me either, and I look forward to making 2010 a better year with you and other Spark friends.

Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm, my friend. Let's go!

    I'm right there with yah JoDee! Funks unfortunately are a part of a lot of our lives - they happen and we just have to get through them. Luv your honesty in this post and am glad you're on the other side of the funk.

Here's some wise words from SP:

"A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson is telling:

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

Move on with your life. Keep reaching for your goals and you will achieve them. One minor setback is nothing if you really want something and are willing to work for it.

Yesterday is gone - today moving forward is what counts. We CAN and WILL do this!! Best Wishes as we get back into the game!!!
