Even if we organize, zip tie or tape wires, they seem to always become a mess and you can never figure out which wire goes where. We bought a package of multi-colored electrical tape & put a piece of tape around the wire at the end that goes into the TV and then put a matching piece on the back of the component , this cuts down on confusion since we have Blu Ray, stereo, a VCR & kids that pull out the wires to play video games

Every day I plan for what needs to be done and then tick it off my list. That list can be in my head or on paper. Items on list are shower, clean and tidy house, eat 3 meals and 1 or two snacks, drink 8 cups of water daily in any form(herbal tea, water with lime or just water) walk the dogs, deal with interpersonal relationships, budget and pay bills, talk to my soul and pray.
give myself a break when necessary after all I cannot be all things to all people and I am not a machine either.
In October 2011 I was not able to complete a 5K walk that incorporated walking up 1000 steps (the annual Bisbee 1000, AZ). The next day I set out to lose 65 pounds and increase my strength and endurance so I can go back in 2012 and complete the walk. That is my motivation to "train."
I am already registered for the 2012 walk in October and am well on my way to being fit to finish!
