I Have A List

Thursday, October 09, 2014

Confession is good for the soul, but is it good for motivation? I confess I've been doing horribly. There, I said it. I’m still floating just below 200 and still off track. I know what works for me. I know what doesn't. I know what to do.


I have a list:

Eat less or don’t overeat. Sort of the same thing.

Don’t eat peanut butter except in small amounts less than half a tablespoon. Don’t ask.

Move more, preferably on the treadmill for at least 10 minutes every day. I’d like it to be a whole lot more, but I've got to start somewhere. Hopefully, it will be 30 to 45 minutes every day at one point or another.

Go to bed before 11:00 p.m. Why is this so hard? I know I am going to wake up between 6:30 and 7:00 a.m. so I should be able to go to bed at 11:00 for a good night’s sleep, right?

Life happens, fit the stuff on the list in anyway.

See, it’s not a bad list. I can do these things.

I haven’t been sleeping well. My bedroom is a construction zone while my husband replaces the carpeting with wood floor so we’re in the guestroom. It’s nice, it’s just not my bedroom. (No, this isn't an excuse, it's just one of those things that happen that I have to work around.)

The new floor is coming along.

I also have to pick a paint color. I’m horrible at picking paint colors. I end up picking beige. Granted there are many different shades of beige, but it’s still beige. I can’t decide anyway. Do I pick the one with more green tones or the gold tone beige or maybe one of the darker ones? Arrgh!

I’m adding to my list:

Pick a paint color.

(Don't know why all the pictures are sideways. That's never happened before, but I have a new computer and a new phone. Who knows?)

    i'm redoing my home too but just a suggestion on paint. get a couple of paint colors and paint a portion of your walls with them. You'll be surprised what you might decide on.

    ps... Thanks for the support on 'a year of change' and wish you well wherever you are on YOUR journey. Have a great week... and if you celebrate...happy halloween!

    Your list is doable and I love the floors. Colors are beautiful. Show us the end result when all is finished. emoticon

    Well your house is in upheaval so of course it is bothering you! Construction is stressful.

    Color picking. What I do is eeny meeny mineey mo... and then if I land on one I might say OH NO not THAT one and know which I'd rather have in the long run. Anyway any of the beiges will work.

    I admit here I have soft yellow in living room, light sky blue in bathroom (we only have ONE bathroom!) and white everywhere else. Oh one wall in bedroom is light yellow since I had that paint anyway. But from now on I am sticking with white. It is so much simpler! I can staple up cloth if I want some color and it is changeable!!!
