Update on me and I ordered PiYo:)

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Well as far as my goals from July go I did not do well at all.

Goals for July
1.) Basic-Drink 8 cups of water a day
2.) Basic-Log into SparkPeople everyday
3.) Wear my pedometer everyday to gage my activity level
4.) Organization: Use to-do book again
5.) Organization: Organize bill book/create budget
6.) Take pictures each week to record pregnancy and do weekly weigh-ins for accountability

I try with water, I really do but no where near what I should be drinking. I still haven't gotten my butt in gear and looked for an internet provider so logging in everyday is not that easy and doesn't happen. My boyfriend washed my Pedometer and since then I haven't even plugged it in to see if it works. I haven't used my to-do book even though it's in my purse nor have I done anything with my bill book or budget since the day I wrote this. My daughter and I did go to the park to test out a remote I got for my camera so I can take mine and my families pictures but as for the weekly pic updates that I wanted to do I haven't done a single one which is pretty disappointing since I monitored each week with my daughter.

I have gotten a better hold on the clutter in the house. When I moved we put two households into one without getting rid of as much as we should have beforehand which has been a struggle but it's getting closer to where it needs to be. This week I have made a big impact with clothes and I continue to work on it each night since Sunday (I know it's only Tuesday but I've done wonders). We've all held onto things for too long, gotten behind on laundry and we have a lot we could donate to Goodwill to get it out of the house and make laundry more manageable each week.

Bills..ugh. This last half of the month is where I am now paying bills in two place...my condo and of course my actual house. I am preparing to get things up and ready to sell this month and praying a sale happens fast so that not only can it be over with but also so I am not paying bills at two homes for too long. It'll be nice to have money from the sale but at this time I'm not sure what it'll even be nor do I have much of a guess as I'm not sure if we are using a realtor or not.

I feel so busy all the time and when I'm not I just want to rest. I did order PiYo from BeachBody though. I've hadmy eye on it for about a month or more since it came out. I've done research and it looks safe during pregnancy with common sense of course. I won't be doing the ab video though! I just want to feel good now and have less work to get off what I have and will put on until I have the baby.

I've picked up reading again. I read almost every night before bed, on my lunch, whenever I can really. I'm reading My Sister's Keeper right now. I need low stress things to do in my time and I thought this was a good habit rather than watching TV that I should get back into. It's done me well:)

I'm going to get started on my goals I set for July in these last few days and will be back at the first of the month with my set of goals for August

    Congratulations on getting back to reading and making some progress on decluttering.

    When I moved last summer I was combining three households! We would carry at least one carload full of "stuff" to charity or to the dump every day for well over a month. We also had the charity bring their big truck to pick up furniture twice. We still have too much stuff, so I feel your pain as you go through your own decluttering.

    Wishing you a wonderful August!

    Things may be looking bad to you, but never give up. Try cutting down your goals to maybe two or three and work on them. When you reach your goals, add two more. That way it is not such a hard struggle and little steps forward is better than one step backward.
