Kids: Do "gifts for Santa", on Christmas Eve, they get to pick which toys to give to Santa, & leave the sack out along with Santa's cookies & milk. This makes them feel good about giving, & makes space in their room for the new.
Adults: Remember FlyLady's rule, 1 New Item In, Take 1 Old Item Out. That's only if your house, closets, and shelves are already decluttered. If they're crammed full & you need to declutter, however: 2 Out for each 1 New In.

Woke up today with a pounding headache, no energy, and wanting to eat comfort foods and crawl back under the warm covers. Even skipped my morning workout - a very rare event : ( But rather than let defeat take over, I went for a nice brisk walk at lunch time with a friend, and then I signed up for my first OFFICIAL 5K run a week from Saturday! I will feel better tomorrow!!!! I need to run!!!!185
Always remember that today is just one day in your journey - so take the break and set a new goal for tomorrow!!
After long research and loads of diet/exercise regime startups (and stops), I finally realised that the one main thing needed is commitment, and more importantly, a reason to commit to a new way of life. My reason is health - and at my age (51) I can no longer afford to say I'll start tomorrow.
I also realised that if one doesn't put his/her money where ones mouth is, one is less likely to commit - because one is losing nothing (except his/her health - but that one will have become used to) 246 Visit my page to find out what I am doing - I will also be blogging as I go along.
