Organization is a wonderful thing!!

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Man I have to say that getting organized is a beautiful thing....for real. Seems like it was going to take me forever and a day to do this. It was a lot of blood, sweat, tears, arguing, cursing, and praying; but it finally got done. Now I am no where near done, however I can say that going back to the basics and just throwing stuff away did some good. I seem to have more time to just sit and THINK about what to clean up next other than having 1 million things to clean and not wanting to! I am not yelling at the kids as much, I can walk into a clean room and just walk out without being upset or disgusted. Now I feel like I can finally focus on myself and my weight loss.

This too is going to take some time to adjust too AGAIN. For I have been behind so much that it not only affected me, but my whole family. For the past month and a half I have lost and gained the same weight because of being unorganized. I really don't have any excuses for it and even if I did they would be totally irrelavant because I know how to do better. I read everyone else's blogs and I comment on them, I even read other people's pages and wish that I can be a success story. I used to do all of this while there were other important things that I should be doing. Um um not anymore. It is time for me to be a motivator for myself and for other people who read my blogs and personal page!! I kind of feel like I have let down my team members because all of them are doing so well and I am stuck at the same weight or even increasing. For that I do apologize Divas and I promise to do better starting right now!!!

Just this morning, I rolled out of bed and immediately started talking to myself. See apart of my getting organized and in control was to put my workout clothes out the night before and write out my whole day and menu on my Pda. I did that last night as planned, but this morning I didn't want to get out of bed. So after hitting the snooze button like 100 times because I set an alarm for every event on my planner, I finally hit the floor with better health and exercise on my mind!!! I didn't even brush my teeth; I immediately put on my clothes, put in an exercise dvd without debating on which one to use, pushed play and got moving for 46 min. It took me a minute to really get into it, but it got done emoticon So now I just need to make sure that I at least try to follow the rest of my plan and just maybe it will become as natural to me as waking and sleeping!!!!

    I am going to need tips from you. I let things get away from me and they turn into a pile of "You've got to be kidding me." I admire you for doing what you have to do to get organized.

    You are doing a great job!!

    Good on ya!! I'm proud of you for taking those steps. Keep up the good work. Some days 15 minutes is too much for me so I'll do 5 or 10 and just DOING anything is enough to get me started for the day.

    Good for you.....sounds like life has kept you awfully busy for awhile, but now you're on your way back up. We ALL get sidetracked by circumstances, sometimes. The important thing is to recommit to getting back to where we know we need to be, which is exactly what you've done, so you're ahead of the game! I used to admire the way my son always stuck to his workout program..finally asked him one day how he managed to do it, and he told me that he just made himself do it each day in the beginning even when it was the last thing he felt like doing.....and after he did that for a certain amount of time, it developed into such a habit that he felt odd if he DIDN'T do it...he said, "Mom, ya just gotta make it a habit". Darn kids are so much smarter than I am.......!!!! You have a lovely family, btw! But kudos to you for hitting the ground running!
