I got my walk in today but ate maintenance calories. It's back to the gym tomorrow and back otk with the calorie deficit.
I wanted to talk a little about 'what i've been doing'.
I have been cleaning and organizing my house.
And much like weight loss, this time around the house cleaning and organizing is going differently.
Why you might ask.
Because I am going above and beyond.
I am committing.
I am not just 'getting it clean'.
I am going down to the bone with the organizing.
I am removing the furniture, vacuuming and then only putting back in what I want to keep.
This has led to some epic garbage piles and some massive good will give aways.
On thursday the garbage guys took away stuff that has been sitting unused for at least a decade.
Kind of like all my excess weight.
Stuff that was just laying around weighing me down.
But now I have three rooms that have a place for everything and everything in it's place.
Three rooms that have nothing I don't want or need.
The Rooms left to go....my kid's bathroom, my oldest daughters room and my kitchen.
The Kitchen scares me.
I want to start a food storage system.
I"ve been blabbing about this for some time.
But I feel like I am finally starting to move forward on this.
I said before that I want to take the dedication and motivation I used for weight loss and begin to apply it to other areas in my life, and I have.
I have organized my art supplies and my urge to draw has been growing daily.
I feel like I need to have my home in order thought.
That comes first.
First came me, my body.
Then my home.
Then my future...
Then My hobbies.
By making myself a priority, my vision for my future has become much clearer.
I know who I am, and I know what I want.
Weight loss isn't really about the weight.
It's about the kind of life you want to live.
You have to catch a vision of who you want to be.
Then strive for it.
I am coming to the final stretch here in the weight loss part of this equation..
Then it's creating the kind of life that will sustain the person I want to be.
You're whole life is either a set up for a sedentary existence, for frustration, and lack.
Or a dynamic existence, for stretching and growth.
To Get to where you want to go, you are going to have to break out of your mold and go above and beyond where your comfort zone is...it's one of your first steps.
My first step was walking every day...I had to break the habit of sitting...
Walking (or daily movement) had to become my new reality.
Well, I had better get some rest.
I am tired. I have a few more rooms to go and I have the gym tomorrow.
Have a great night guys.
