- Clean out drawers and closets; throw away, organize (sometime in winter or spring)
- Clean out garage (see above)
- Cut back on diet coke and junk food
- Get a membership to the gym and then Go
- Take the dog for a walk when weather permits
- Read some of the books on my reading list
This sort of list works best for me. When I get a drawer cleaned out and straightened, I feel a sense of accomplishment. Or if I can say, "Wow, I haven't eaten any chocolate in four days", I feel good about myself. Then if I eat a candy bar the next day, I don't beat myself up. My list of things I want to improve about myself is long, but I can and will take baby steps. I will not try to do everything at once in giant leaps!
I'm fairly certain this type of plan won't work for everyone. But I have to take a Laissez Faire attitude because I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and some days I can work and some days I can't. I have come to the conclusion that if it gets done--GREAT. If it doesn't get done--OH, WELL.
