Love this song! "Brand New Kind of Me" Alicia Keys- youtu.be/wOSv1TIa58M
I was contacted by Geralin Thomas a few months ago about growing up as a COH (child of a hoarder). She graciously offered to let me be a guest blogger for her Metropolitan Organizing "Managing Modern Life" blog. One of the things we talked about was how tackling the clutter really helps when you're trying to lose weight. For me clutter has always been a stressor that went right along with the constant struggle to lose weight and get healthy.
Click on the link below, check out my thoughts on the clutter/weight struggle connection and how de-cluttering made a huge impact on my efforts to lose weight!
These past few months have been spent dealing with the situation with my mom. She's ok and now in permanent long term care, quite an emotional roller coaster in itself. I'm really trying to focus on the positive and beautiful in her life and what I can do to remind her of how blessed and loved she is. The rest of my time has been taken over by a rockin new job, a big move, and huge life and family changes.
I'm settling in to the new stage of my life, God has been so amazingly good to me through it all! Meanwhile I'm working on my new "baby", it's a blog dedicated to those who struggle with self care. It's also for those who maybe grew up without that mothering connection to learn how to take steps to nurture and truly take good care of themselves.
I weigh officially next week, but so far I've lost over 3 pounds, woo hoo!
