The whole week at work over all was not bad. Today I promised myself that if I could get my pallets unloaded before 11:30, I would not exercise tonight. To do this, I would have to work very quickly. Done at 11:22! I’m relieved because I just don’t have the energy tonight
Eating sensibly, sneaking a cookie here and there, exercising, logging in, spinning the wheel, blogging, huddling. You name it, I’ve done it. I’m looking forward to hitting my goal weight. I’ve even started writing the blog for that, complete with horrifying “before” pictures!
I have failed this miserably, or my perfectionist self says I have. My sink is shiny, I’ve swished and swiped and taken care of hot spots. However, I have not spent 15 minutes daily, decluttering or the daily missions.
Exhibit “A”, also known as my “Molehill that became a Mountain” – I started this declutter mission a week ago. It seems so simple but for me it is overwhelming. I’ve tried spending 5 minutes at a time on it. I’ve tried the “Give away, Throw Away, Put Away.” It’s a mess of game CD’s, that somehow got mixed up with Picture CD’s, that somehow got mixed up with blank CD’s.
“4th Grade Adventures” It was my daughter’s and she is in college now. It needs Windows 95/98. Does it work with Windows XP? No idea. Do I keep it for her? Do I give it to Goodwill? Do I throw it away? Seems like such a simple decision, yet I am torn.
First, I need a good night’s sleep. I’ve been sleep deprived for about 10 days now. I’m not sure if is that I am not sleeping soundly enough, but my cats are keeping me awake or waking me up. They are pouncing on me, running through the house, and fighting with one another. So, it is a Lunesta night.
Second, I am going to repeat “You are not behind, okay? Just jump in where we are at,” over and over until I get rid of the “Overwhelmed,” feeling. I can do anything in 15 minutes.
I’ve already started “Third,” Pavarotti is singing in the background, sipping Pumpkin Spice coffee, and writing.
P.S…. The Secret has continued to work. Not one bill or surprise came in the mail. Smiling at every living thing, makes others smile. Spending so much time improving myself, I do not have time to criticize others.
