Exercise 3 to 5 days a week - Have begun morning breathing and stretching exercises. Not completely new, as have always breathed and stretched in mornings, but now in more organized, planned fashion.
Have unearthed book lost under stack a year ago, The 150 Most Effective Ways to Boost Your Energy. Trying to be encouraged that there are 150 ways for energy to become boosted vs. disappointed that of all the things I do, none are already listed in the 150. Felt as though odds were in favor for at least 7.
Take my vitamins - There is now an awareness of not having taken vitamins vs. the surprised feeling each week of seeing it displayed on this list. Definite step forward.
Read - Read What Would Mr. Darcy Do? and Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride. Had to review own blog in Barnes and Noble to remind self if I had already read and reviewed either of these. Blog finally serves purpose. Hurrah for blog! Sad day for brain.
Give up soda! - Have replaced coffee & soda with new vice wonder elixir: Organic Mint and Honey Sweet Leaf Green Tea. First taste was more interesting than delicious as spearmint flavor usually categorized as gum by both palate and brain. Found self thinking of Sweet Leaf Tea progressively more over the next 2 days...which lead, of course, to dragging children through the isles of Wal-Mart and Publix in search of larger portions of said tea. Only wish the story of the original making of tea (in dorm room brewed in pillow cases) had been left off side of bottle.
Idea of boys' college dorm room does not engender sanitary conditions. Am sure they have lovely, quite clean factories now... Am sure.
Not wear shoes in the house (with the exception of our newly formed, short term Bible study people who I do not know very well): Mostly.
Write thank you notes - Need vitamin like awareness of this still.
Finish the plethora of projects half done and/or started in my head - Have started tablet full of new ideas that both invigorate and make me feel completely exhausted as related to renovations....(see below).
De-clutter the house room by room - Have packed up 1/3 of home for renovations. As packing, (to protect items from dust, etc.) thought wonderful opportunity to repaint, repair and change some rooms around. Or just sit on sofa and eat Publix Brand Salt and Vinegar chips while watching The Real Housewives of Anywhere under overwhelming weight of "this will never be finished."
Meal plan - Glad to have had read this at 7 a.m....am now reminded we have nothing for dinner. At least "aware" there is nothing for dinner and will not be surprised by fact at dinner time.
Start scrapbook project: 53 Saturdays - Shut. Up.
Plan out each day with some sort of strategy - Much better.
Pray / Bible study daily - Also improving.
Not be a victim to technology - Disconnected malfunctioning computer for renovations. Wonder if plugging it back in will have rejuvenating effect, as like with a printer that just needs a quick unplug and then plug back in. Oddly optimistic even though past optimism seemed to have little bearing on malfunctioning computer like items.
Keep up with this list every Sunday in format of Bridget Jone's Dairy: How do you type that sticking out your tongue sound???
