Finally....sort of...

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Okay, so it's quite a bit late today. I just couldn't get to it until now, but here I am, blogging away. I'm excited because I actually stuck to my vagueish goals I set yesterday.

1. Blogging every day. Well. I consider this a success because I wasn't able to do it at my normal time, but I still got on here to do it at the first opportunity. Yes!

2. Decluttering my house. Okay, now obviously I did not get my whole house decluttered last night. But I did pick up one whole room so it no longer looks like a tornado swept through. Yes!

So, here are my goals for today.

1. Keep blogging, Mon-Fri
2. Keep decluttering by picking up an additional room. Listen. I don't have much time and this is not meant to be a deep cleaning. 10 minutes is all it takes, as fast as I can move.

I can do that. Now. I want to tell you something else. Last night I *gasp* thought about exercising. I thought about it. I didn't do it, lol. But I haven't thought about exercising in a very long time so trust me when I say this is good news. It is good news because a week and a half ago I didn't want to even be here blogging. Phew.

Also....and I'm really proud of this. My work had a cook out for us today. I had a hot dog, a bag of chips, a water, and a very small thing of ice cream. I said to the people I was sitting around "that hot dog was wonderful, I could use another one". I sat there visiting so long that everyone was done and they had left over hot dogs. Several people tried to get me to go get one and I kindly refused....over and over again. This. Now's a BIG deal. Huge. Seriously. Now I am sitting at my desk munching on my yellow pepper strips. Yum.

Thank you for sticking with me while I work through my nonsense. I swear I can feel myself getting strong and more ready every day.

    That is freaking FANTASTIC! I know how hard it is to say no to something that sounded DELISH and you want it, and they are right there, but you aren't really hungry, etc. It is so hard! You did great!

    And to even think about exercises when you are in the frame of mind to not want things... That is fantastic. Maybe it isn't getting it done YET, but it is putting you in the frame of mind to get there, and I'm so proud of you for that. It is so hard.

    I think you should invest in a fitness tracker. It doesn't have to be a pricey one, something small, they have some inexpensive ones, because I think you could really go far with a smaller step goal and up it gradually to help you with fitness. That way it is as you need it.
