Taking inventory

That was an interesting blog I was reading this morning...maybe I found it interesting cuz I really need to take inventory in alot of things that I want & need to do in my own life.

Now very recently I was in a crappy mood~maybe it was caused from my absess tooth, or recent financial problems, or the fact my weigh-ins aren't going the way I wished they had, or the possibility of inheriting family health issues or some annoying work related thing, or my on-going habit of procrastination in EVERYTHING and being such a scatter-brain that no matter how much something needs to get done.......it won't be done until its long overdue.

Then this week I found a new group here on sparkpeople https://sparkpeo.hs.llnwd.net/e1/mys
park/groups_individual.asp
?gid=4578.
I figured maybe I would find new tips on how to fix something in myself besides just my weight. Well the first day of checking out the group I noticed something about organizing a home office. OMG! that thread with all the links and pics has inspired me to throw stuff outta my closet and turn it into my home office...today! I wil post pics of it later tonight or tomorrow in the group.
And its a perfect excuse to take inventory of all my clothes, magazines and misc boxes full of junk.

you know, I can say I have goals just like everyone else. But are they really goals or just daydreams. A daydream is something you're interested (part-time) in when its convenient and a goal is something you work towards NO MATTER WHAT and except no excuses.
I found a quote on someone's sparkpage that I heard yrs ago and agreed with.
" Successful people DO what unsuccessful people say can't be done - EVERY DAY!"

Some people may say that dieting & losing weight, and alot of other things might be harder without a significant other or just a group of buddies to encourage you along. Well sparkpeople help me along, push all you want...PLEASE. I don't want to just spark, I want to GLITTER & shine brighter then the full moon thats out this week.

I guess without realizing it or also not wanting to admit it...I stopped caring and took myself off my own "to-do" list years ago. Well now I am ready to jump back on to the top of my priority list.

    You go Girl!! We all have a tendency to put our husbands, children, work, household etc before ourselves. When all of a sudden we wake up one day and we wonder who we have become because we don't recognize ourself anymore.

    Trust me doing it alone is sometimes easier. Over half of my weightloss battle is not having my husbands constant bantering keeping me down. When we were seperated (do to where I was working) I lost 20 lbs without dieting. I was just being active and not a couch potato. He complains about how fat I am, but then when I try to do something about it he knocks what I am doing or he teases me which I do not take in the correct way. We got into a heated discussion last not which I went into a eating frenzy. Thank goodness I had made the pumpkin brownies yesterday. Instead of eating 1 with a .5 cup of milk I ate 3 with probably 2 cups of milk. When I am alone I can concentrate on me and I make better choices.

    I know both alone and with someone is tough. The Bottom line is SP makes us do better. The tracking and the SP Teams are certainly motivational and will make us what we want to be. I just have to remember it cannot happen overnight..... :)
