Streamlining things ... simplicity

Monday, August 08, 2016



I have been on a hiatus. I think I wrote about my staycation last time I wrote. I really got a lot done; Things I've wanted to get done for years.
That was good and it also provided me with much reflective time.

I thought quite a bit about how I am so sick of diet plan after diet plan that I just can't stick with. My summer has really been pretty bad with not watching my food and not exercising enough. I defend myself with my injuries. IT Band pain and then falling down those stairs on my bad shoulder and injuring my tailbone. Luckily I think I only gained 2-3 lbs.
Really.
Not.
The Best.
Summer.
I've had.

I found a new directions to go to.
I am not going to share this just yet, until I see how it goes.
But I will eventually.

What am I working on right now
I am working towards getting rid of our humongous entertainment center.
I found a grand old buffet type piece of antiquity that will replace it. We don't need such a huge piece of furniture anymore. The T.V. is not even in it. I am digitizing our extensive CD collection and plan to use a wireless bluetooth speaker. so tiny compared to our big rack stereo system and the big speakers.
I am also going to sell our big computer closet that used to be a free standing linen closet. I am replacing that with just an old, refurbished library table.
I am taking books that I stored in my sewing room and haven't looked at in 10 years, to the half price books place and getting a little cash for them.

That Marie Kondo book has really changed the way I look at space, what we store and how I think. Trying to simplify. It really is life changing.
This way of thinking is what has me going off in another direction with my health concerns and the time I spend trying to work with diet programs.
That is not in the book, but that way of thinking changes you ... well anyway it did for me.

Be Well My Friends,
For The Love Of Health!
Laurie

    We sold 90% or so of our stuff when we retired and took off travelling. VERY freeing feeling!

    And I hope you can figure out what kind of eating plan works for you. I know that for me, I can feel deprived really easily. So my plan is to eat my favorite items, in moderation. And skip the stuff I don't like, or think is mediocre.

    Saves calories, and I'm happier with less.

    Just a thought.
