My Week

This week I've been busy cleaning out that room in our house that is named the I'm Not Sure What to do With This Right Now So I'll Leave it in Here Room. You know the one. The one where the door is usually closed. The one where no guest has ever been in. The one that is where guests are suppose to stay when they visit. The one that scares me the most. Well I'm tackling those fears and cleaning it out because on Tuesday we're getting a sofa delivered so guests can actually stay there.

This week I've also been busy eating like a PIG. It's been just gross. I feel disgusting. My clothes still all fit and the number on the scale really hasn't moved, but the difference in the way I feel about myself is remarkable. I'm sleeping poorly, I'm more headachy, I feel out of sync. I guess that's a good thing so it will be able to put this week behind me and more again in the direction of healthy eating and exercise. It's amazing what the connection is between my eating and my mental/physical state of being.

This week has also been an eye opener for me. I realized this morning that I really, really need to have a plan for the holidays. I've attacked the Halloween spirit full board and I know I'll do the same with Thanksgiving and Christmas if I don't make a realistic plan of action now. I'm not sure what I'm going to do, but I know that I have to do something.

I'm like you. I need a plan of action. The gifts and all for Christmas are bought (I buy during the year and keep a list, so I know what I've bought and for whom).. But the decorations and all that, I keep thinking, "OK, I need to plan how we're going to decorate."

And like you, I have one of those rooms. It's the Catch All room. Lol.

I'm with ya! The halloween candy has put me way off course!! I too feel crappy from just eating it! I think I'm just gonna have to throw it all away. Get it out of the house!!!! lol

I feel the same way when I eat poorly. Just goes to show that the number on a scale is really irrelevant- it's all about how it makes us FEEL.

Holiday plans are a must for us all, I think!

What's the deal? I've been better this week but not nearly enough to make a difference.

I need to get serious too because I hate feeling "puffy" around the holidays--especially New Year's.

(don't even get me started on my basement!!!!)

I have that room. It's my computer room. It's the room I dread to start working on. I am tackling it this week (Yikes). If you never see me again, you know what happened :).

It's amazing how once we start eating healthier, our moods are affected when we don't eat healthy.

I've got to get a holiday plan in place, too. Soon!
