Making excuses to not work out is definitely on my to don't list.

“I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings.”

Eating after 7 PM is on my "to-don't" list.

On my "to don't" list is to not eat ice cream every day. Instead, have one serving (1/2 cup) once a week.

I absolutely love ice cream. It is my favorite food. So far, I went five days without it! Always a struggle, but worth the effort.

Love this topic!
On my to-don't list right now:

-Stay online during weeknights too long, causing me to stay up too late!
-Taking work home from work...it gets done when it gets done.
-Wishing for more of anything--I have what I have when it comes to money, time, and energy...and it's enough. I just have to budget it right to make everything balance.

I had to step down from my quilting. I would get up and quilt before breakfast!

On my to don't is not to be negative about my MIL who is a sweet lady but getting old. I need to be more patient.

On my to-don't list is not to volunteer for anything. This is really hard for me to do since I love participating in music anywhere with anyone at anytime, (church, schools, plays, local singing groups or bands, musicals at the theatres). I also love to work with kids ( especially at-risk kids) in after school study clubs and/or in the Girl Scouting program.

However, after doing it all for 35 years, my husband put his foot down and told me not to do any of that until our home is tidy, organized, and cleaned. Since I hate cleaning, and want things organized, I agreed and so now am getting a lot of chores done at home, many of which I would rather not be doing! It is a struggle, but I am making progress.

1 - Waste time on the computer - surfing the net, playing games etc. It's my biggest time vampire.
2 - Looking at things as binary (good/bad). I need to appreciate the small victories to put less pressure on myself.

I have been reading several books lately so I'm not for sure which one it was from, but I think it was from a book called "Weird"

All the so called "secrets of success"will not work ... unless you do.

Great idea....

On my to don't list is spending too much time on the PC without thinking about it, and not to say 'yes' to people who want to meet with me unless I really want to...

Keep it simple.

I'm reading a book that suggestion you start a "to don't list" to help combat the all too familiar insane business in our day to day lives

I'm all too good at over committing myself for good causes. or spend way to much time online instead doing things that are more important.
