Life Organization

Short update as I never seem to get around to it. I always forget lol.

Enjoying a lovely four day weekend.

Having just settled from a lot of changes. Moving. New job and moving again, it's time to re-organize.

I've decided this is the perfect weekend to map out chores about the house and un-pack whatever we haven't yet and actually find a place for everything. Look through finances and re-do long term and short term plans. Organize my work plans.

And of course cemen my health and fitness plans. I've finally started using Coach Nicole's 28 day Bootcamp DVD. Each morning and it does break a sweat.

Planning on walking to the subway and home again after work starting next week (instead of taking the bus) and using the stairs instead of the elevator. Not exactly looking forward to the stairs but hopefully it will be a breeze in a month or so. Also doing BLC here on Sparkpeople and plotting to do C25K finally in a week or so (false start a week or so back).

Been keeping up with the exercise and Ayurvedic morning routines but dragging my feet on getting started with the organizing. But it's the second day. Maybe a nap and a snuggle with my honey bear and I'll get the Home part of my organization done. That will be the hardest part I think.

But I got a present for myself. A lovely new workout outfit and I look gorgeous in it. I will take pictures soon.

Til next time :-D

    Thanks for all of the comments everyone. You guys are wonderful!

@LadySmithC - That's why I can never seem to post often enough! Too much to do offline!

@FLAMENM - Wake up, take a moment to fully be aware, say a little prayer, get up and "evacuate/eliminate" (you know, number 1 and 2), wash face, brush teeth, scrape tongue, use the neti pot to clear nasal passages, clean ears. Do exercise (from my boot camp DVD for now but I have others), rub down with sesame oil, take a shower. I'm supposed to incorporate yoga and meditation but haven't yet. Then you go about your day. Eat breakfast etc. Light breakfast, large lunch, light dinner. Healthy snacks in between.

The house looks great and I got to the Y for the first time since moving today. Spinning was crazy. But goooood! Thought I could do an hour of Zumba afterwards but it soooo didn't work out. Only managed 30 minutes plus I didn't like this instructor's somewhat frenetic style.

    Great way to start. I know when I have lots of "stuff" in the way, I am totally distracted!

    Life organization covers so many things - the physical, the mental, the activity, the emotional. Sometimes, when one area gets organized, everything else starts to fall into place.

What is your Ayurvedic morning routine?

    Good topic: LIfe Organization.
I should spend some more time doing this. Once in a while is not enough time...and it beats sitting in front of the tv, pc, or screen!
Maybe that's what I should go and do now!
