I’ve made it to Day 4 of the Blogging A to Z Challenge. So far so good and I’m feeling calm and ready to continue. Of course, I have no idea what the rest of the alphabet will be, but I enjoy the feeling of adventure!
D is for Determination. I’m addressing two topics that I probably talk way too much about…Following the Weight Watchers Program and clearing out this crazy house!
I feel that at the moment, I have the Weight Watchers thing under control as I said on Wednesday. I am making careful, conscious choices and I’m feeling confident (sounds like I’m back on “C” again!) But those choices combined with my new-found determination will hopefully keep me on track.
It’s all very much based on my determination to staying healthy. I’m in the frame of mind where I wish I still worked for Weight Watchers. I loved sharing my enthusiasm and determination for the Program with other members. I still speak up at my meeting that I attend, but I don’t like to sound like a know it all. I’m certainly not that, and I realize that I always have something I can learn at a meeting or from another member. Weight Watchers is very much a co-operative thing.
My other determination is getting things done around the house. On Tuesday I talked about a new beginning and working hard to go through things. I committed to at least an hour a day. Tuesday I put in over an hour going through clothes, sorting and assigning to keep or put in the yard sale bin.
Wednesday, I tackled two dressers in the bedroom that had become catch-alls. Way more than an hour! Both are cleaned and organized. I had a nice big bag of trash to go out, which proves that I didn’t need most of what was on the dressers. I also plan to each day, take whatever I deem as trash goes right to the trash can outside so I can’t change my mind. I also worked my magic on my bedside table. Boy, had that accumulated a bunch of stuff!!
I should probably concentrate on one area at a time, for instance-finish the bedroom, then move on. I may try that and work more in there today or I may go back to the basement to the clothes bins…or I may start somewhere else altogether. The important thing…I have to keep working.
To accomplish that…I need to leave my cushy little computer chair and get started.
I’m determined to accomplish something today and every day! How about you?!
