I have decided that I am insane. I have been battling my weight for years. Years!!!! And I really am sick and tired of it. I look at my husband who made some very organic changes and lost a ton (yes, he's a man and I'll never lose weight that easily but it couldn't hurt). I spend so much time focusing on what I should be doing that I rarely end up doing. Done. I am done with that. I have found that if I make to-do lists I tend to stick with them. I don't dwell so much on what I should be doing but more on what is on my list. If I sit and make the list in a rational moment, I put good things on there and get things done. So, in an effort to stop the insanity (ha! stolen) I am going to make a list every night of the things I want to do the next day. I will then stick to that list instead of sitting on my ass in front of the computer lamenting about what I should be doing or trying to decide what to do. So here goes today's list:

  • Workout  Done:  note of things that have improved: 
    • I can stretch my quads without holding on to something
    • I can touch the floor with a flat palm when my legs are spread
    • I can touch the floor with my fingers when my legs are together
    • I don't want to puke until hear the end :)
  • Take Bella to the beach  - 2 hours - Done
  • Start sewing the quilt - Done
  • Run to Ross's for a dress - 45 minutes - Done
  • Look for new trailer hitches
  • Walk the dogs - 1 hour - passed
  • Train Bella  - 45 minutes - passed
  • Get ready for the prom  - Done
  • Go to prom - Done

That totals approximately 6-7 hours of my day.  Since there is 11 until I have to be at the prom, I have plenty of time to accomplish everything.  I am writing this list on my dry erase board that sits on my desk so I can see it every time I come in here.  I am also limiting my computer time.  No more than 10 minutes at a time.  Ooops, time's up, gotta run.

Change my thinking

 I have always said that I'm someone who likes routine. I like knowing what I'm doing when. I like knowing that things will get done...
