It's time to get back up
We are almost officially one week into the new year! I am really enjoying my one little word, Clear, and all that it's been inspiring. I've been clearing out the clutter in my house like crazy. I haven't been able to keep up with A Bowl Full of Lemon's challenge like I had hoped but I certainly have been bitten by the organizing bug. I don't have photos to show, but you would have been amazed by the pile of clothes that Daniel and I cleared out of our closet and drawers. It felt so good to drop them off at Good Will this morning. I've been clearing out time for art and blogging and all things creative, and this makes me so happy. I still need to get going on my art journal, but I'll get there. I'm truly enjoying Ali Edwards' class and hope to have more to show for it in the next week or two. I've been good about buying less, which helps both in my goal to clear the clutter (bringing home less) and clear our debt (less money spent, more money for debt). So I am accomplishing a lot!
But I still need to get to work on my weight loss goal. It seems like this goal haunts me every year. So in an attempt to get myself up and going on this, I have joined the Biggest Loser Challenge at Green Tangerines (a local scrapbook store). I'm not sure what I'm hoping to gain from joining, but I thought it was time to do something different. In the past I've been quiet about my weight loss goals, even with close friends and family, and so far that hasn't worked. So here I am announcing to all that I need to lose weight and I plan to make 2011 the year that I actually do it! I'm going to clear out bad habits and my excess weight! Feel free to join me!
