Day 74

Rise and Shine.

I wake up and clean now. For those of you who have known me for like ever know that I just don't do those kind of things*. Well now I do.

*Yeah, it surprises me too.
(from this view, we can tell what a lousy job we did painting. Guess we just figured no one would see this view. Looks like I need to go get some paint for touch ups.)

Defeated / unmotivated / Drained

I still can't get over how my family reacted to getting rid of dishes. DISHES for goodness sake. Ugh.

Day 72

Kitchen Declutter Day

Today is kitchen declutter day*. Everything in the cabinet and thensome is leaving my home today. Normally I ask family memeber or friends to come and take what they want but I really have no time for that, waiting to give stuff away is how clutter stays in my home.

*To find out how clutter is supposed to help me loose weight read my other blog (365 Days of Me in words.

Day 71

New Dress

Against the advise of all the weigh loss and clutter rule out there, I bought me a dress* 3 sizes smaller. I really liked the dress, and have it hanging for inspiration. I will be this size by mid spring.

*The dress cost a $1 (Goodwill), wouldn't of bought it other wise. It's from Bandolino.

Day 63

Tiredness of Nothing

Spend 4 1/2 hours in an ER room. A nephew fell, split his lip and hurt his front teeth. My sis and law doesn't handle these things very well. I drove them to the ER and waited with them. Thankfully he didn't require stiches. How does one get so tired of just sitting around?

Day 62

A hunting I will go.

The goal was to apply for 20 positions today. My eyes feel crossed from searching various employment websites.

Day 61

Salud !

At a total spare of the moment today, I became a Princess House consultant*. Awww!

*I don't even know if I can post that type of info on a personal website. Other company's have strict rules about these sort of things. I might have to delete this info later after I get familiar with the company.

Day 59

Happy Valentine's Day

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you
really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I
havelived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'
You must do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor

Day 58


Its never freaking ending - this self improvement. No matter how much I try to fix, I still feel so... broken.

Just having one of those days. It's not a bad thing, thanks to this blog I am realizing there is so much to fix. Piece by piece I will do it.

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

skiped a day

I don't know how to count. I skipped day 22, I have to go back and change the dates but in the mean time you might see two days repeated.

Day 58

Queen of Excuses

I started the blog for weigh-loss and have gotten so much more of it. I noticed a trend - I'm full of excuses as to why I can't accomplish what I set out to do. FULL OF EXCUSES.

I've been hiding behind them my whole life. Today I'll be pondering on how I will lift the veil.

Proverbs 13:4
The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.

Day 57


It's easy to admit that you are not where you want to be in life, but feeling it to your soul is excruciating. Today I finally realized that my excuses for not finishing certain things are bull shit, in particular my bachelor's degree.

I need to find a place to center myself. I'm starting to get a little freaked out over my employment status. I know that I should focus on possitive thought but every so often some negatives ones creap in.

Day 53

Shoes and more Shoes

According to Peter Walsh my cluter is what's keeping me fat. He said that clutter makes one fat, but on my case I say it's keeping me fluffy. Tomorrow I am going to tackle my shoes.

"Eating more and buying more is an attempt to fill the need for something more. Until you get those underlying issues dealt with, all the rest is a waste of time." - Peter Walsh

Day 52

Ashes to Ashes

Today is the begining of lent, fresh starts. It's constumed to give something up during lent or do something that is good. All day I pondered what I would do or give up. I don't want to do something superficial like give up bread, soda, tortillas, etc. I want to do or give up something that will make a difference in others or my life.

I have a clutter/hoarding problem that has trickled into my children, and it has been bothering me for some time now. For lent I am going to make a conciouse effort to organize my life and home

Thanks to Little Bits of Life blog , I found I'm an Organizing Junkie.

And Peter Walsh is on Oprah tomorrow, gotta be a sign.

Day 50


It feels like I blinked and January was gone, and now I am on Day 50.

I haven't been on track with the weight-loss. I don't want March to arriave and feel like I let February go to waste on this journey. I was going to go on and on about my confessions of what I haven't done and when I started to think about it, yes I haven't lost the weight I wanted to loose in January but I did accomplish a lot. I rather focus on my accomplishments

I started to take a longer route (2-miles) to pick up daughter from school.

I started to take vitamins that are good for me.

I try to make good food choices.

I started to exercise again.

I can go on to say they are days I don't do all those things but at least I do them some of the time. So for that I applaude me.

Computer Crashed

Our home computer crashed. Fourtunetly we have a couple of laptops but they are a bit outdated. I'm going to have to do a blog roll on my site to remember blogs I read, some I never bothered to learn the names.

I'm so bummed that it's possible that I lost so much, specially my pictures. This is why it's not good ot procrstinate. I was going to get around saving them on disc. :(

Day 49

Wishy Washy

Now why can't we loose hundrends of calories doing laundry? I've been doing laundry late at night to save on energy and cost. I read somewhere that doing laundry late at night helps with the energy and gas bill.

Day 48

You are Beautiful

Today I felt rejected, fat, out of whack etc, etc. So I ate and ate and ate. I finally caugth on what I was doing and how I was feeling that I snapped myself out of it. I can't compare myself to others. I have to learn that I am beautiful in my own right.

Artist: Christina Aguilera
Album: Stripped
Title: Beautiful
Don't look at me Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, it's hard to breathe
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the fame, I'm so ashamed
I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
So don't you bring me down today
To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The piece is gone and the puzzle undone
That's the way it is
You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words won't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words won't bring you down
Don't you bring me down today...
No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what they say
(no matter what they say)
When the sun is shining through
Then the clouds won't stay
And everywhere we go
(everywhere we go)
The sun won't always shine
(sun won't always shine)
But tomorrow will find a way
All the other times
We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down
We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words can't bring us down
Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today

Day 47

Dancing Feet
I didn't get the job. "It was a really hard decission, blah blah blah, but we went with another candidate, blah blah blah." Oh well. God has something better in store for me, just hope he'd hurry up to show me what it is, is all I'm saying.
I was feeling a little bummed and the opportunity to go out appeared, so I took it. :)
