run the "sensitive" papers through the shredder, or maybe burn them in the wood stove in the basement. Haven't decided yet. It's cold enough for a fire.

This "old" topic is perfect for this time of year. Sometimes you do not have blocks of time to do something. However, just ten minutes of work can make a difference in a tidier home, finishing a project, etc.

Each day spend ten minutes working on something that keeps things better organized or tider. Share how you spent that ten minutes.

not doing much tidying on vacation, because my sister-in-laws plan every detail of everything and our room is small and not easy to keep 'tidy.' But we're still having a ton of fun.

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

Okay, the last two times I weighed in I'm at 200.5. Which doesn't seem like much, but it's under 300 and I am excited about that.

I also walked in a race today. I did a tad better than I expected. I did 2 miles in 38.4 minutes. I expected to do it in about 40 minutes, so that is a little better than I expected. The YMCA 4th of July race is something I've always wanted to do.

Now that I'm feeling better it's time to make a plan to tackle all the things I got behind on while I was sick.

I wish I could find 10 minutes a day - Hopefully things will slow down soon. I'm just trying to keep the house 'decent' until then.

I"m going w/ this challenge rather than the kitchen overhaul. Our kitchen is in DIY mid-remodel so all the dishes washed and counters 1/2 deep washed w/ stove and cabinet wipedowns and floor sweep seem ambitious right now until 2nd 1/2 of cabinets that are stored in kitchen but not installed (long story) are up.

I'm glad you feel better too. I'm just trying to keep up with the basics while things around me are spinning. My nephew put my sister in the hospital this week and went to jail and then my father-in-law had surgery. So, no projects till things calm down.

I've been sick, on medical leave, for about two months now...at first I was so sick that I couldn't do much of anything...I was doing well to keep dishes and laundry done, cats fed and litter cleaned. As I've started to feel better, I've been doing 10 minute cleaning or organizing bouts...it's amazing how much you can accomplish in just 10 minutes.

Why is that to organize, you have to have a messy room? emoticon

Oh, well, using this approach, I have cleared my bedroom closet. Next step, is putting back only what really needs to be there.

I got some letters and cards done - I use to love writing, but anymore it's such a chore. I sure hope that changes.

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

Just take it one day at a time. You'll get there, step by step.

Jayne, Thanks for you condolences, they are very much appreciated.

Changes are going well for the most part. I'm trying to be patient with myself, but it sure is hard. I started with changing some of my medication and weening off of some of it and adding some vitamines as a replacement. I'm seeing good results already but also some 'side effects.' I expected them, but that doesn't make them easy and sometimes its hard to be patient with the process, but I'm trying to keep my focus on the overall goal and the final outcome, not just how I feel today.

Sorry, I've been MIA again. I'm working on some major changes in my life. I started an exercise program that I love and am keeping up with fairly well as well as a new Goal approach / plan. I'm working on changing / quitting some of my medications - after some research I believe I'm taking so much medication that it's starting to do more harm than good. At the same time I will be slowly adding in soem vitamines. After that is under control I think I will have a clearer head to start on my eating issues. I've also given up some extra activities like the Wednesday Woman's Bible study class, Celebrate Recovery at church and we told my niece she had to leave. It was hard, but I believe it was the right thing to do. I still love my job, but it sure keeps me busy, but that's a good thing. On a sad note, I did have to have my cat put down yesterday. We had her for about 10 years and she was MY baby. I was the only person she liked and I'm gonna miss our nightly petting ritual and our morning petting ritual followed by my sharing my breakfast with her. So I guess I'm on to a new phase of life, or at least I hope so.
