Will not waste my time thinking about yesterday and what I didn't do right, fresh new day to make sure it's an on track day for me.

I will NOT waste time being concerned about things that happened in the past, they are done, and I will just move forward with a positive attitude knowing today is a new day granted to me.

Don't waste today...whether it be your time, your calories, your thoughts or feelings, or something in your home that can be recycled or donated.
***************************
For me, it is recycling books by dropping them into a donation bin that provides financial support to the schools in my town.

What will you not waste?

Don't WASTE energy or time on negative things today. Is it a person who is a challenge? Sticking to your exercise or nutrition plan hard? Weather got you down?

Turn it around.

If it is a person (as mine will probably be - a co-worker), smile & speak kindly, sending unspoken blessings to him or her.

If you feel like a failure because you slip on exercising or food today, forgive yourself & correct it at the next meal.

If it's rainy, stormy, hot, humid, or something else, remember that we wouldn't enjoy those comfortable, sunny days...and believe there is one ahead of you.

Just some suggestions for not WASTING the day away with negative thoughts or feelings.

I will not waste the precious time I have to move forward. No NEGATIVES .. celebrate each small accomplishment and celebrate at the end of the day! Today .. added 5 pounds to my strength training .. a good feeling.

Thanks for getting today's challenge started. I saw it in my inbox this morning when I signed on to post today's challenge.

Today I will continue cleaning my office, recycling as much paper as I can.

Today, I resolve to not waste time or energy worrying about my health. I'm doing all the right things according to my onco, and I just have to let things take their course and wait for results.

On the resource front, I resolve to spend 30 minutes cleaning out my office and sending things I don't use back to supplies so they're accessible to my co-workers.

Simply being thankful makes life easier.

I am who I chose to be. Stronger. Leaner. Further. Fierce.

It's about taking my power back.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right.

for drafts of letters I reuse paper - turn it over put it in the printer and print on the unused side. Then I shred it when it's finished so that also allows more paper to get in one garbage bag.

I recycled a rubber stamp at work rather than buying a new one. I was able to cut out the piece that didn't work with a small knife and voila! I have a stamp that works great for what I need.

I have a bedspread that has a few spots on it that need mending, plan on doing that today and then I can laundry it and donate to the clothing bank.

Won't waste time beating myself up for not being on track like I should, will just push on and keep trying till I get back to full steam.

Will take the gift of today and make it the best day I can.

Thanks for the challenge Mauri. Wishing you much success with dealing with the co-worker.

Don't waste today...whether it be your time, your calories, your thoughts or feelings, or something in your home that can be recycled or donated.
***************************
For me, it is recycling 3 items this morning...and I am going to work on not wasting feelings on negative things that may happen - particularly on one co-worker that is a challenge...

What will you not waste?

As it happens, my walk to town today was anything but a waste of time. Not only did I manage to get loads of pics for a walk blog, return my library books, get one out for Tara, and get the shopping I needed, but I also discovered the possibility of TWO jobs that may come my way. Thrilled? You betcha! :-)
Happy Hump Day!

I did not waste time with negative thoughts, but instead focused on the healing that is taking place in my body and getting through the day at work in a positive frame of mind. (I think I did pretty darn good!)

I did not waste my money today. I was tempted to buy a set of tea, coffee and sugar canisters, but walked away for a while. When I came back and looked at them again I could see that although they were pretty, the quality of the seals was very poor and unhygienic. So £12 saved for another time. :-)

What do you believe you've been wasting - time, money, calories, exercise?

Waste not today...What will you not waste today?

For me, it will be the time I spend at home today. I will use it to sort through a pile of denim skirts and pants I pulled out of my closet - trying them on and donating those that do not fit or that I don't like.

May 18 Waste not Wednesday

Today's challenge to is take stock of how much time you are wasting in being "unhealthy". Are you living the life you want to live? Are you procrastinating? Is your mantra " someday"?

Take today and take stock of your dreams, your choices and how you see your life being lived. What changes can you make starting right now to live the life you want?


Have an awesome day. Remember, it only takes one step at a time to get to where you want to be.

Wanda

Oh this one is right up my alley today. I have been sorting and putting stuff aside for our church 3 day basement sale and lots of things are going, all our proceeds from that sale goes to missions. I am getting rid of lots of things I've just been holding onto for no good reason and it's time it went and somebody else will hopefully get some good use out of it all, and it's making me feel good to see it go.

May 4 Waste not Wednesday

Okay spring is upon us. Many of us have been doing clean-ups and clean-outs. Now is a great time to "recycle or repurpose" things. What have you got that you can find a new use for or pass along to someone else to use?

Here's a couple of links that might give you some ideas:

Well my youngest DD brought me some magizines and I need to place them out in the lobby and laundry rooms for other residents to look at, also some AARP papers, so I guess that's recycling them in a way. Can't think of anything else at the moment.

I seem to be helping others do this today, rather than doing it myself!

1. My daughter took some newspaper out of the recycling bin this morning for an art project.
2. I helped a coworker "recycle" some leftover pizza that she was going to throw away (In other words I ate a piece for my lunch).
3. ??? The day is still young, give me time. :-)

Just realized I didn't post what I'm doing:

1. Leaving some clothes for my landlady to sort through for two friends of hers.

Yay...already this morning (before even heading out the door for work) I've recycled the newspapers, I've washed some jars to be re-used for canning, and I'll work on the third thing later today.

Have a great recycle/reuse day.

Hugs,
Wanda

Oh great challenge Mauri:

1. I've recycled all the contents of my fridge to a lovely cardboard box and have stored it in my garage where the temperature is much cooler than my non functioning fridge. Anything that won't keep is going to the neighbors for them to use.

2. I'm a great re-user...I've washed the plastic containers that store bought things arrive in and I re-use them for items that I bulk buy.

3. I've gone through my books and decided that there are some that I'm not going to use again, so they are being donated.

Hugs,
Wanda

Thanks for the challenge, Mauri.

1.I was on the phone with my friend today and she started talking about how she needs some flannel sheets for her new queen sized bed. I have flannel sheets that are gathering dust because I don't really like them. They are soon to be hers.

2.I have a coffee can that I am recycling into an "Angry Letter Incinerator" for my sister. I am decorating it today to get ready to send in the mail.

3.I have a skirt that belonged to my daughter. She never wore it. The material is really neat. So today the skirt is becoming change purses and toiletry bags for Christmas.

Today I challenge you to find 3 things you don't need and find a way to recycle them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. An old dairy box...using it to store small items in my closet.
2. A lamp in my closet...bringing it to work to use for soft lighting instead of overhead lighting.
3. 3 denim skirts I bought awhile ago that didn't fit & didn't return...gave to my landlady to donate to secondhand store at her parish

Lots of good ideas here. I'm not sure how I missed this challenge...

1. I eat lots of leftovers. Typically I plan leftovers for the next day's lunch - saves time and money.

2. I recycle my bottles and cans at work and home. I also take the pop can tabs off first and give them to Ronald McDonald house.

3. I try not to waste an opportunity for anything - and that ties to my word of the year NOW - No Opportunity Wasted.

4. I try to recycle (or at least not waste) good ideas. As the saying goes, why re-invent the wheel?

5. I try not to waste good advice. I have a couple of friends who are always spot on with advice.

Since we are moving from a 3200 sf office to a 1300 sf office, and our building does not recycle, I am bringing home a lot of paper to put into our recycling bin.

Today is Waste Not Wednesday. Here's a couple of ideas.

1. RECYCLE paper, cans, bottles...if you don't recycle at work, bring something home & throw it in your own recycle bin.

2. Use your leftovers.

3. Feel like you have extra energy today? Do something with it.

4. Don't waste your time. Use it to do something worthwhile for yourself or for another.

Any other ideas?
