Just finished watching (more like “crying through”) the first episode of Jillian Michaels new show that had the couple with the two kids and the third child who only lived a month. So sad. After the show ended, I cleaned up the kitchen – still crying. Finally to distract myself from negative thoughts, I began listing the things I accomplished today:
- Completed a project at work that I’d procrastinated on for a month. (go, me!)
- Worked out at the gym today – which makes it two workouts in two days!
- Cleaned the kitchen. It’s sparkling!
- Grocery shopped at lunch which saved time after work – so that I could work out.
- Tidied the bathroom.
Listing those accomplishments helped the tears stop flowing. Then I started thinking, why do I live with extra…things in my house…and extra pounds on my body. It’s because I don’t think I’m worthy to live in a tidy, spare house and live in a strong body without extra pounds on it.
I deserve that!!
So here it is, Day One. I can’t do this alone. Wanna join me?
My plan is to do the flylady basic morning and evening routines and include 15 minutes of decluttering per day. I figure I spend more time thinking about decluttering thand doing it. When really, I could just spend 15 minutes a day and NOT think about it further. There are deeper and sometimes more fun things to think about! (hmmm..like a bubble bath as a reward for cleaning the bathroom….. or a new LivingEtc magazine for bringing my lunch most days to work……. or walking around the lake with friends).
So (taking a deep breath). Here. I. Go.
