Creating Order- Day 14 of a 20 day challenge

Creating Order PSD copyI have given myself the challenge of trying to create more order in my life. There are areas where I manage well and others where I fail dismally and cause me stress. I would love nothing more, than to have routines and habits that enable life to just flow better. I am hoping that by posting everyday the various areas that need I feel improvement, that it will keep me accountable and I will achieve my to do list for once in my life. 

I’m nearly mid way through the challenge and I thought I’d have a look at how things are going…

Bringing routines back:

Getting there. The first couple of mornings when I bought back having a Quiet Moment with God, proved challenging as they I ran into the rest of the morning routine.

Getting there with the evening routine…

Laundry. Hmmmm. That’s still a working progress!

My Biggies:

My paperwork mountain is still there. 😩. It’s just all neatly divided into boxes.

Christmas preparation:

This is proving to be even more time consuming than usual. Aaaarrrrgggh!

Health/ Weightloss:

Let’s just say that it is looking like yet another Christmas where I am behind the camera, as I have too many pictures from last Christmas where I look like I will be adding another member to our family in a few months. Cringe…and ‘M’ posted one of them onto Facebook. Double Cringe!!

I need to change that. I have slowly been improving my eating habits,  eating more veg, reducing my wine intake, limiting puddings etc. The gluten free thing hasn’t gone too well, so I still don’t know whether it has been affecting my moods or not. Possibly the build up to the silly season is not the best of all times to be trying a new lifestyle habit!

I am going to keep being positive and being determined.

(I also think I am going to print a few copies of yesterday’s Nike photo, and post it in strategic places -fridge, home office door, next to the Easy Peasy Chore chart- to remind me to keep going.!)

I will get there. Slowly but surely wins the race. That includes slimming up and living a more healthy lifestyle.

Today’s challenge is to breakthrough the bulk of my Urgent To Do List… All the things I need to do before next week.

About Cheryl

I am a child of God, a wife and a mother of 4 children. Some days are good. Some days are frustrating. Some days are just plain insane. In between the mayhem, I loved to go for walks with our mutt, potter in the garden and enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. That all changed in August 2012 when we waved goodbye to our mutt and garden, our eldest at Uni in Gloucester and moved to Tokyo for 4 months. And yes- we are still here...
