So in an effort to "clean house" as it were and get things in order, I have been cleaning out our dressing room. We call it a dressing room 'cauz it's 10'x11'. Yes, that's the size of a lot of bedrooms. Our house isn't that big ... but our bedroom is in the basement and we started with a 22' long bedroom and just basically cut it in half ... the rest of the room has a bed, 2 side tables and a vanity; 'cauz really, how much more room do you really need in a bedroom when you don't have kids and need an escape. (just a totally off-topic note ... I have one very yappy, sucky cat who's trying to get some attention and driving me batty in the meantime). Anyway, I digress.
I've finally disciplined myself enough, through watching my favourite shows, to purge, purge, purge the clothes. If it doesn't fit well and flatter my figure and/or I don't totally love it ... out it goes ... normally donated ... occasionally in the garbage. It's really quite liberating. And it also forces me to make sure I stay on the straight and narrow and continue my weight loss 'cauz I don't have any fat clothes left. I even donated my "fat" pants ... you know, the ones you keep to remind yourself of where you were and don't ever want to return to ....
So I'm not working tomorrow but unfortunately Barry has to go in for a few hours. My chance to do some stuff I meant to do before I got sick. So it's time to do laundry (normal stuff), clean out the fridge (find some interesting science projects I'll bet), make a fruit salad, clean up my office and take care of some paperwork and budgeting items (scary stuff).
Gotta take the tree down ... it's been up abaout 7 weeks now ... I want my house back ... just in time to be decorated for the tiki party ... can't wait!
Then there's the prep to get back on track with my workouts. Being sick sucked the life and energy out of me. I'm almost there. I haven't done too badly with eating although I might just blow that out of the water this weekend ... but I'll have to keep it under control. But it's time to plan some workouts and organize meal plans and my diary pages. I'm going to do some circuit training for several weeks ... just have to remind myself what I used to do. Less than 3 months to gardening weather (yes, I start VERY early ... I have to ... LOTS of gardens) which means tanning and shorts weather is closing in. And THAT means I need to get my rear in gear. But I do have to ease into it a little since I've been off for 2 weeks and don't want to get sick again ... can't afford to ... my manager will have my hide!
OOO! did I mention I came across some skirts I haven't been able to wear in probably 3 years .. AND THEY FIT!!!!!! YAY!!!!
So lots of stuff to do to prep for the new year. Barry and I just spend quite NYE's ... too much craziness in going out and way too expensive.
So I hope everyone has a wonderful new year's eve, however you like to spend it, and I wish everyone an AMAZING 2010.
These are forget-me-nots from my garden ... thought they were rather fitting.
