Every single week I say I am going to absolutely try to flip my life upside down. Change my every day crappy habits around and make some good of my life.
Don’t get me wrong I am not a bad person with deep dark secrets in my closet. No, you won’t find horrible things there, what you will find is…
A super messy house, clothes that seem to multiply like gremlins, toothpaste spattered only on my side of the sink. I can’t load the dishwasher for this clean up time because I forgot to turn the thing on last time! UGH! And don’t ask me where my keys are. I have 5 pairs of shoes piled up at the front door always. And I can’t remember the last time I made my bed. Did I mention that bunnies live here? Not not the cute little ones but those dusty ones that seem to find their way out even if I have just swept! That is just my home for starters and only a few examples of my messy habits.
However I am all caught up on my shows, and I know everything happening in Facebook land. And I have spent plenty of time soaking in a hot bath imagining this organized life I want to live. Only to get out and plop down on the couch with the computer and t.v. This.is.sickening.
My health… hmmmm let’s see here…. I have every workout video series known to man, Walk Away the Pounds, The Firm, Body Bump, Zumba … Biggest Loser etc… the list goes on and on. And are you ready for the whipped cream and cherry on the top?
I pay for a gym membership AND own a total gym machine.
And here is the kicker I am so out of shape and overweight it is ridiculous! We eat out way to much and I am way to addicted to sugar.
In high school I ran track and I was always dancing. I had killer legs, not now! HA. Now I have killer thighs.
So each week I say I am going to start being a responsible adult, I am going to get my crap together. Like I am just going to resist the urge to do what I always do which is a whole lot of nothing.
So here’s to what I hope will be some accountability for me to strive to do and be a better person. I realize I won’t be able to change all of this over night (even though I have had delusional moments where I am pretty sure I am tough enough to do so) the reality is this is going to take time. Overcoming one thing at a time.
I am going to make a list of all the things I need and want to change. Make my top 3 that are most important non-negotiable and once I master that then I will add to it.
When I am brave enough maybe I can share some before and after photos.
I will accomplish this. I have to. My sanity and health depend on it. I want to be a good example to my son, I am sure I have already ruined my adult daughter. I tell my son pick up your room, it’s a mess. I am sure he thinks I am crazy. I tell him do as I say not as I do. #gottasaveoneofthem
