My Day: Has just begun. Drinking some coffee, updating my Cozi Calendar and finishing up my menus going out 14 days. I’ve let emails lapse, so I dug into a few today.
As I said yesterday, today is my son’s move out date. I am going to offer help when needed and work on my resolution the rest of the day. Biggest goal today will be to shut the computer off as it is a major distraction from me getting things done.
Change can be scary, but I am going to make it positive!
A picture speaks volumes. I am finally living in the 60’s according to Wii (Though my doctor’s scale says about 3 lbs lighter usually). I have lost 1.5 lbs in 10 days.
But look closely. Goal: 170#.
I remember the day I made that goal. January 3, 2011. I was 225# that day, had major surgery 3 weeks before, I wasn’t allowed to drive a car or even lift a gallon of milk. I was really depressed and it wasn’t just the hormones that were doing it.
I was in a dead end job that I despised. I wasn’t speaking to most of my family over something that seems so minute now. Both kids had left for college. My house was also at it’s worst. I was in the middle of organizing photo albums and every picture I saw was a reminder of how much I had let myself go and excuses I had made for it.
It was the day I joined SparkPeople.
They told me to set a goal I thought I could reach. I figured that if that little lady in the bottom corner of the screen stopped screaming YOU’RE OBESE, I could live with that but doubted I would make it.
That picture is a beautiful thing to me. It reminds me of where I started, where I am at, where I am going, and where I will never return.
The Dr’s goal is 160, my personal goal is 149 (I just like the number). I’m thinking the next step should be (when I have some available cash) a pair of Levi’s, size 12 long that I will hang visibly in my closet.
(FlyLady) I am resolute to do the“Weekly House Blessing” for 60 minutes.
• Toss old Magazines
• Change Sheets (Every week? That will be a change)
• Empty all trash (done)
• Vacuum all rooms in the middle, no corners or moving furniture
• Mop kitchen and bath (just need to do bath)
• Shine mirrors and doors (I’ll throw in a few windows)
• Feather Dust Furniture
As soon as that is done, my house will officially be out of CHAOS (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome) as long as they stay out of my bedroom and don’t open any closets :D It’s a beautiful thing!
After that I am going to keep at the decluttering for 15 minute intervals and get as much done as I can.
Time to “Dress to Shoes” ….”I can do anything in 15 minutes”
