The D is Done!

Sunday, January 20, 2013

The BLC21 is off to a fun and exciting start! emoticon When the first weekend challenge was announced to Just D.O.I.T., I immediately knew what I would do for my D. My family moved into a new place 4 months ago and I had yet to dig through boxes in the garage and pull out all of our photos. emoticon What's a new place if you don't make it feel "homey", right? emoticon
Well, as of today at 5:58pm, the D is done! emoticon I know this doesn't sound like a huge feat, but trust me, it was. DH had put all kinds of random stuff in various boxes with no labeling. So in order to find anything, I had to literally push, pull, lift, lower, open and sort through a gang of boxes! emoticon The photo gallery wall of shame is off to a great start emoticon. I know this is supposed to be a weight loss journey emoticon but it is so much more. Through SP we are able to attack our procrastination and fears, and challenge ourselves in so many ways! emoticon

    I think that's a great project for the D! It's so hard when you move--there's this big stress when you're moving, and you get everything unpacked you HAVE to get unpacked--and then you're so tired and burnt out on the entire process it's easy to keep putting off the final little details that really make a house a home. It took us ages to get the pictures up on the walls when we moved here!

    FFT...I can only share PART of that Marine word here on spark! emoticon As someone who moved here during the horrendous, nasty heat of this past summer - oh and a power outage, and having moved the big storage room, err garage around multiple, multiple times to find things and categorize things and do just what you did this weekend, I hereby emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (the last is for a bonus spin that wins you a trip to Azure Destinations for the next 11 weeks to enjoy each challenge that BLC21 can bring you) emoticon because no matter how overwhelming, it is THAT fulfilling too! Enjoy that gallery wall (pictures?) and the feeling you got at 5:58 when the "D" was emoticon Way to go Island Girl!

    Digging through boxes post-move can definitely be challenging!

    skeewee-- that is so dang awesome! boxes, unlabeled, are a big obstacle to overcome, really-- boxes are those projects that are so easy to procrastinate, keep at the bottom of the list, to the point that you move boxes that you never unpacked from the last move-- this is huge!

    I'm excited to hear about your trips down memory lane with the photos, too...

    spark is not just a journey of weightloss.... it is a lifestyle redux, and you just took a strong step forward with this "D". Fabulous job, blue.
