I need to do some cleaning.
And not just in the kitchen with a little “help”.
I mean I need to do some major cleaning (and organizing).
(By the way, I know the scary green room doesn’t look any different from the old pictures. But wanted to share that the table on the right is filled with my pregnancy scrapbook that I never finished. Um, hello. It’s been two years later. I have problems. Please don’t judge.)
It’s not just these two rooms either. It’s everything: finances, closets, this blog, STUFT Fitness, my diet, marathon training, purse, diaper bag, car, etc.
I’m in a bit of a slump. And I better find my way out soon.
This past week has flown by. I can’t believe Andrew’s staycation is over. Hey look, he had some cleaning to do too.
His helper wasn’t as involved as my two were.
I know the next month is going to be crazy.
I’m not sure if I’m quite ready for it.
Not only has this past week flown by (without getting anything done that I thought I would), but I’ve also eaten more than my fair share of food (and desserts).
I’m very stubborn person. I’m good at making specific goals and working hard to reach them, but I’m not good at prioritizing daily tasks and dealing with big life issues/decisions.
I like to block things out. Instead of dealing with pressing issues (or things I should be doing), I create other things that take up my time and attention instead.
Isn’t that lovely?
I also tend to let things pile up (if you haven’t noticed). Then I reach a breaking point where I feel overwhelmed, stressed out and have no idea where to start.
Time to clean it up Kristin.
So, here’s to a new start. A focus on cleaning up all over the darn place, being healthy, taking care of myself and my loved ones, getting enough sleep, finally tackling my MO, figuring out how to add a few more miles each week for my upcoming marathon to my already hectic schedule and to live life the way God wants me to.
Should be a piece of cake right?
Speaking of cake, my plan of attack the next few weeks is to stick to healthy options I can make at home instead of indulging on high calorie desserts (since I’ve had quite a few the past week). I wrote a couple of my “go-to” sweet snacks for the SunButter blog last week. Come to think of it, I haven’t had my dark chocolate fudge for awhile either and that always takes care of my rich chocolate cravings. It’s easier for me to stay away from all those other not so good for you sweets when I know I can make my own versions at home.
One day (and one task) at a time.
And, just to make sure I leave you on a light note.
Did you see the Biggest Loser special from last Wednesday?
I did. I watched it last night with my friends.
I know Bob, I’m upset we haven’t had another Bob Club date too.
Happy Cyber Monday!
What exactly is that anyway? Or is it better that I don’t know?
