Shame on me...


Tuesday, January 18, 2011

I was so gung-ho. So into P90X. So singing the praises of SparkPeople. I bought The Spark. I was practically dating Tony Horton. Then suddenly I got sick. Like really sick. Not disease-sick, fortunately, but that utterly horrible cold that comes like once every three years and you-just-can't-shake-it sick. THAT sick. I was dizzy, nauseous, tired, drained, sneezy, coughing, achy...miserable. I couldn't move. The holiday season was a drag because I was dragging. I lost all my motivation. Even to get out of bed in the morning.

Then when New Year's came around I knew I had to start with something so that 2011 could look somewhat bright. I wasn't ready for the physical part yet so I tackled something else: I decluttered my ENTIRE house. Every box, shelf, bag, cabinet, cupboard, drawer, cubby hole, and file was dragged out, inspected, searched, cleaned, and organized. Hubby and I chucked boxes upon boxes, bags upon bags. My house is now spotless and an absolute pleasure to be in. I'm just now starting to get back to the point where I feel like I can be physical and not pass out. I hope that I am able to keep with my food and exercise routine as well as I'm keeping with the cleaning and tidying resolution I've kept so far.

But shame on me for not even coming to SparkPeople to check in and see my friends. Shame, shame, shame. Don't I know that it's the camaraderie of this community that keeps me going? I should know that. It's what's gotten me to return, after all!

Missed you guys! Jenn and Anna...I'm so totally back!!!!

    Welcome back to the "land of the living!" Those kind of colds can really be a drag... SO glad you're feeling better! I WISH I could get into de-cluttering mode! WOW! The idea of a clutter free house is SO fabulous! Good for you! Great way to begin a fresh start!

    Decluttering frees you in a way nothing else can. Good for you.
