Body Clutter, Cleaning House, and the Month of March



My Goal for March is to begin working on body clutter more intensely.  I plan to post more often in Loving Ourselves, Finding Ourselves, as well as on the corresponding Facebook group.  I would love to have you join me.

My plan is to eat healthier, according to what my body needs;  but, on the other hand, I do not plan to get myself in a position of feeling like I am on a diet.  However, if I want to lose the few pounds I have gained from emotional eating, which for me usually means eating more sweets and eating when I am not hungry, I need to do some things to get myself back on the right track.

That does not mean I will be bound by the scale, but I know in my heart that I need to pay more attention to what I eat and move more.  I will not tell you whether you should be on a particular food plan.  However, I am going to be finding out what I need to do, and I will share the valleys and the victories.  It's hard work, and it's so much better when that is shared.

Meanwhile, back at the hacienda, remember that cleaning house Is Exercise.  This is movement that counts, so if you are cleaning up your cluttered areas and taking care of your home, you are getting exercise!  Hooray!

Finally, I am posting 2 Habits of the Month.  One involves what we eat, and the other involves cleaning up the clutter in your home and/or office  Don't take on too much.  I don't want you to feel overwhelmed.  Do what you can do, but do not obsess about it.

Last Days of the 28 Day Challenge

I did post the last part of our 28 Day Challenge on Facebook, so I hope you saw it.  If you did not, you can adjust your days and carry them into March.  

The whole point of this challenge was to encourage us to make some headway in our homes and to become more self-motivated in getting rid of our clutter and keeping things up.  Also, I wanted you to see, there is always a starting point, even when events or illness keep you from getting chores done.  Know that you can jump in, whether your house is huge mess or just a little out of shape.  

Each day is a new day.  Decide what your priorities need to be and don't give up.

5 Days left after today of the 28 Day Challenge



Hopefully, Monday has already become Bathroom Cleanup Time for you. As we do these last 6 days of the 28 Day Challenge, I hope you are baby stepping toward a schedule of cleaning that works for you.

Days 17 -22........28 Day Decluttering Challenge

Let's not get weary of well-doing. I know it is hard. Sometimes, you have to force yourself to get things done. Just remember, you will feel better for every baby-step taken. If my list is too hard, make a simpler, shorter goal. I don't always get the things done that I want to get done or I plan to get done. That is life. Do the best you can at the moment. Then, let it go. Do not be angry with yourself.
