Yesterday I finally buckled down and started cleaning house. I completely rearranged my bedroom so I could store boxes that I didn't go through in a way that they weren't blocking anything. I reorganized the living room and picked up the kitchen. I vacuumed with my new awesome vacuum and got so much done. It took me nearly 8 hours of cleaning to get that all done. That is a full day of work!
During that time, I began changing my attitude. I am so much more comfortable when my home is organized and neat. It feels easier to get back on track, which I've been off of for a while. We bought my fiance a bike, he wanted to get me one, but I was just not comfortable with that, but looking at his bike today, I realized, I need to change my attitude about that too. I'm gathering all the food I won't eat over the next couple of days to donate it. I hate giving away food, especially because are so broke and need all the help we can get. I still am unemployed and he has been dropped to 3 days a week at his job. We struggle, but, that food is going to someone who needs it (and wants it) more than we do.
So today I will give myself a break (and I already kind of did!). I woke up at 6:30 a.m. made my handsome fiance lunch saw him off to work and at about 7:30 a.m. I fell back asleep until about 12:30! I didn't know I needed the rest. So Now I'm up, watching the soccer game and I will do the basic cleaning and commit to unpacking one box, anything over that is bonus. I DID start tracking my food again today! So yay for that!
I made this delicious strawberry smoothie, 225 grams (approx 8 oz) of strawberries, a bit of splenda and ice. It was YUMMY! I made this bbq pulled chicken stuff for his lunch so I had that for breakfast on some yummy multi-grain bread, I did have some strawberry milk too. Bad me! However, I am going to fully track my food! It really help keep you on track.
Getting back up is a climb sometimes. It's worth it though.
