Spring Cleaning In January!

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Today I was off work and spent most of the day finishing my task of getting organized! I was actually up by 9am even though I didn't go to bed until after midnight. For me, that is AWESOME! I find I sleep too much when I'm not on a regular schedule. And, since I never know what my schedule is going to be like, I tend to sleep too much. Lol! But, I was rather proud of myself today. I got up at 9am and had a grapefruit. I am so happy I am not taking that medicine that wouldn't let me eat Grapefruit because it is so YUMMY and healthy! I worked on my room and cleaned while I watched a movie...or more like listened to it because I'd already seen it a million times...but it was noise to keep me busy at least! Lunchtime was leftover lasagna which wasn't exactly healthy for me, but it needed to be eaten and it was a small portion so hopefully it wasn't too bad. I think the only thing I really overdid it today was on the Mountain Dew. I won't even tell you how many of those I had. But, small steps right? And, its gonna be a slow process weaning myself off soda again. But, I did add 40 oz. water in the mix so it wasn't all bad.

I ended the day with having sorted out all the bills and they are ready to be put in the new file foldres I bought tonight at Wally World. Walmart has these really cool file boxes that are purple and kinda like cardboard. Very cute and perfect for what I needed. And, of course, I had to buy the striped purple hanging and file folders to accompany it. Now I just need to get off here and sort all the bills into the right folder. I did about 6 loads of laundry, swept the kitchen and dining room, and even cleaned the bathroom today. And, I'm about to go clean the kitchen before I go to bed! Wow! A busy girl I was! My aunt asked her boyfriend if he gave me some speed today....joking of course!

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you are awake and filled with energy! I think my extra energy today came from being at peace with myself inside. Knowing that I'm on the right track and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel after all. It's just gonna take me to walk through it before I can see it completely! Tomorrow is Payday at work from 2-10pm so here's hoping for another great day! My next goal is to get my eating on track. Healthy foods and logging my calories every day. That's one goal that is harder for me to stick with so I'm gonna take it a little slower......otherwise I just fall behind! :-)
