This weekend I started to sort out everything that was niggling me - I got my room properly tidy, did all my laundry, all my filing, joined SparkPeople & made a list of uni work which needed to be done. I feel like I have a clean slate now to really start with a new me - losing weight, getting more sleep, keeping up with work, saving money & being a lot more motivated!

As a mother of 5, we stop what we were doing when I call BLITZ. We enjoy working as hard as we can to clean quickly and beat the timer. Sometimes it is a quick blitz of 15 mins other times, an hour. At times, we compete in teams to get chores done quickly.
One of the things I do to enjoy life is to have fun! By making chores and exercise fun, I have a great time! my daughter makes sure we all have fun! I even have fun when I am cooking,too. Being positive every day keeps me motivated.
I find that when I make eating and other areas of my life more fun, I enjoy life and I have so much more energy! Energy levels stay high by having a positive outlook on life,enjoying a variety of foods in moderation and exercising daily with activities I love to do!
I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.
