Sloggin' on....

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I've been writing a private blog about motivation and weight loss, and the last few days I've been tempted to just say "Blah!" I'm not doing badly, but I'm not making a real effort either. The one thing that's remaining consistent is 10 minutes of exercise a day, while my nagging self is saying "you should be doing much more than this." Is that why I feel "blah?" Because I'm not satisfied now with what I'm doing?

Or more likely, in my opinion.... is this season and the fact that our whole family is coming in from out of town - 14 people in all - and I'm literally spinning my wheels. I have two craft areas in the house (yes, I know I'm lucky), which will be converted to sleeping areas, and I've got to figure out how to box my stuff up, and find a place to store it. This seems at this point to be a monumental task. Both my sewing area and my crazy quilt supplies have lots of "stuff" that, in my mind, should be organized as it's being stored so it won't be a mess when it's unpacked again. It's loosely organized now, but if we go in and just start throwing things in a plastic box to go to the attic, it won't be in a very good order. Some "like" objects take up a lot of room; other "like" items will only take a corner of the container.

I just heaved a big sigh. Getting this down into written form has already helped me to formulate possible solutions. Thanks again, SP friends (even if no one reads this! LOL!).

You've brightened my day already!

    i think if i had a separate craft area...a big studio at least 500 sqft, that my house would be immaculate! since that may never happen, reshuffling stuff is my life. i totally understand! hope you find solutions.

    You'll figure it out because you're one smart cookie!! Take it in small steps and just keep at it. It really does work even for me (if I'll ever just get up and start)!!!

    Be blessed!

    Haha - I read it and I know you're going to figure out a way to get it all worked out.

    Letting us know you're keeping up with the 10 minutes of daily activity is a real motiviation for me. I was doing so good and then one day I didn't get my activitiy in and said "forget it, I'm not doing it now." I know I cut my nose off to spite my face and I'm going to get back to it!

    Thanks for sharing and allowing me to share with you!
