Here we are at the weekend again.  Time is just flying by.  It was so nice out last weekend.  We were wearing light weight coats and I actually walked around the backyard to see what was going on with the flower gardens.  This weekend it is COLD and gloomy out.  No snow, so I guess that's a good thing.  Winter depresses me somewhat.  I have never liked the cold weather.  The hotter the better for me.  I just can't seem to get warm in the winter.  In the past I've had my thermostat turned down, but this year I said I wasn't going to be uncomfortable and I've turned it up a little.  I'm still cold a lot of the time.

This week eating has gone is pretty well.  I've tracked everyday.  I've gone over in points some days, but not a lot and I still have weeklies left.  I've been getting 2 workouts in everyday.  I don't know if I will see a loss on Monday, but I feel good about how the weeks gone.

I'm still following Flylady.  This week we worked in the bathroom.  It is all sparkly clean.  Actually the whole house isn't terrible.  My bedroom and the dining room are the worst.  It won't take much work to get the bedroom whipped into shape and next week is master bedroom week, so I will get it done then.  The dining room is a different matter.  It's not terrible, but it is the dumping place.  My table always has something on it and my desk is usually ready to walk away.  This is where my "office" is.  This is where I spend most of my time.  My goal is to get rid of a lot more stuff that I don't really need to help make it more manageable.  Right now my table has all the things on it that I want to file in the file cabinet that I just brought up from the basement.  I have gardening and home decorating pages I've torn out of magazines that I want to keep and lot of exercise tips and a lot recipes that I have to go through and decide if I still think they look good enough to make. 

Now I have to get ready to go to Zumba.  This is how I start each and everyday. I either go to Jazzercise or to Zumba.  What a great way to start a day!!


  1. I tried FlyLady once but found it too hard to do. But I did get some good ideas from her.

  2. I also tried FlyLady years ago and she filled up my mailbox for several days so that I finally said "enough"! We have a small table just inside the front door that is our dumping ground. I'll clean it off and before the day ends, it will be messy again. My office is a corner of the bedroom and it is usually flooded with papers of various kinds. I thought getting a filing cabinet would help. The cabinet is full and I still have tons of paper around. Ugh.
