Recently some words that I DIDNT say where put into my mouth by a dear family member (B*TCH!!) and now there have been some frivalous issues in my husbands family.
So as of today i am NOT going to talk about much to anyone and Im going to journal like i use to when i was in my teens.
I have realized that I’m always in the dog house with people for what I say, it always comes out wrong and my own husband is making waves about it. So, as of today I zip my mouth and think before I speak.
One thing i have learnt the hard way is that PEOPLE LIE!!! You think their situation is better or they are better at doing things, NO! Some people are just better at making their life look PERFECT!!
I have a family member that ALWAYs makes me feel like im not as good as she is…HER LIFE SUCKS! She is better at covering her problems up.
Say to yourself…WHO CARES ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE..Worry about yourself!
All the best : )
My Husband over the weekend decided to drop the words on me… Start sticking up for yourself!!.... i was actually upset when he said those words because i was the queen of defending myself and saying what i felt regardless of the consequences. I think after getting married i changed cos everyone told me i was over the top with sticking up for myself and then i had a child and i became even more quiet and let others get away with treating me bacdly or hurting my feelings – so i can see i do need to learn to stand up for myself, but why did i get broken down in the first place!?
So heres to standing up for myself. I am refusing to be treated any way i do not appreciate.
In order to stick to a schedule and a daily plan of attack i have had to have my diary glued to me like part of my body! Its been great though being able to get through all the things i planned cos i have a shedule that helps me spend certain time on specific things.
I recommend a diary highly!
After the kind of New Years Eve i had with all the negative family members around, all the friends that cancelled last minute and all the bulls*it i went thorough i am soooo over negative people.
New Years Day my sisterinlaw made sure she broke me into pieces and i am so distant from the cow now that life has never been better. I have to see them soon with family functions that are coming up but i wont be speaking to her thats for sure! Its over with us and with all the other people that continue to be negative and drain my energy.
So, people call all the time to organise things and i was always double booking, now i check my diary first and see if im available. Also i schedule EVERYTHING in, even making dinner has a time slot. No time of my day will be wasted and in saying that i dont forget to put tv time down and enjoy some peace after a hard day. All the best getting organised xox
Finally the motivation has hit! I started 3 days ago and i have been balancing on 61kgs for a long time now – FINALLY i saw 59.4kg on the scale and the goal seems closer!!!
I spoilt myself and went shopping today and i feel so good and so ready for the summer. I am aiming to shed another kilo by the end of the week and even though i have some parties planned – i am going to stick to the goal.
I think when you are trying to loose some weight – asking others to join you can drag you down a little if they decide to back out….try and do it alone so you dont get let down. Some people arnt as ready as you are.
My bday dress arrived today and i am so keen to look ULTRA hot in it.
I have been listening more and letting people have their say before i speak. Im noticing that sometimes i was cutting in and there was really no point in adding the info i cut in to add. It makes you realise how selfish it can seem to someone that is disciplined and makes a concious effort not to interupt.
Im still working on this one, after being made aware that i am huge offender of this i am striving to make an immediate change.
I am making a menu plan for the week to stop myself from purchasing too many groceries and having them sit in the pantry looking at me each time o open it!
I always tend to shop with an empty stomach and im a sucker for new products on the shelf.
Menu Plan is starting as of today!
I was pulled up on this over the weekend even though i already knew i was guilty of it and its one of my character flaws. So here i am Monday morning realising – ive gotta stop this!
So as of today i am going to make a concious effort not to interupt people while they are speaking and listen more.
I have started the challenge and put the deadline of Oct 1st 2010 – my punishment for not completing this or mastering the art will result in the loss of chocolate in my life! I need to make this work.
Man, i just keep buying and buying with a million ideas in mind and then never get around to it! I need to start this ASAP! My sister cant get over my pantry!
I completed a belly dancing course 2 years back and it was so fun, I had a competetive person with me which made it like a chore towards the end. My advice would be – if your going to bring someone make sure they are in it for fun and not to compete, also – accept if you cant get your belly shaking like the professionals -i managed to look like i was having a fit but i laughed at myself and my lack of co-ordiantion and how stiff my body is.
Learning to belly dance is something i enjoyed.
I eas reading fly lady and she was saying that if you do 15 minutes 3 times a day decluttering isnt so hard. only pull out something that wouldnt take more than 1 hour to do.
I have arranged yada(a no profit organisation for disabled teens) to come and pick up all my stuff – having a garage sale would simply have all the stuff laying around and then hard work trying to sell it -i would rather give it to an organisation that could do with the money from wht they sell.
I am getting there! I have dropped so may things off to the Salvos and man does it feel good!
The trick is to put itty bitty tasks each day to get it done. Sometimes cleaning makes more mess before its clean…take it slow or u will feel overwhelmed! : )
Hope this helps. Wishing u all the best with this goal
Clean out the storage room
Make a dessert for the cousins night
Minamise my belongings- live with minimal stuff…if i havent used it in 1 year – get rid of it
Clean the office and all the bookshelves
Clean my bedside drawers
Throw out expired beauty products
Get Anthonys room ready for him to sleep in. Get all the clutter out
Week Five (Carries into July)
Spring Clean my bedroom
I have successfully completed all my May projects and am happy to announce that it is possible if u stick to the plan. I had a schedule and carried it out. A big pat on the back for me!! : )
I am hosting a morning tea at my place on the 27th of May at my placeto raise funds for cancer research. I feel happy that i have finally got a date in concrete and people coming. Lets see how much i raise!!!
