Early resolutions Part II
In an effort to stay on top of my December resolutions, I ripped apart my casual clothes closet and put aside 3 full green garbage bags of clothes to donate to Goodwill.
You can actually see all the clothes now so I am quite proud of myself. My goal is to get down to one closet by April. The first step was easy cause I just gave away anything not worn in 2 years. I just touched the tops by the way. I still have pants & work clothes to do. Maybe on Boxing Day. I have two closets. I want one to be empty. Symbolic? Maybe.
I did pay down a tiny amount on my mortgage last night. 8$. I like to keep the principle at round numbers. It’s at something like 168,000$ now. It’s a start. This is a longer term project obviously.
I worked out for ½ an hour and got in just over a mile. It’s a light workout for me but I made the effort and went out. I swim heavier distances on Wed, Fri & Sundays.
At lunch yesterday, I had a green pepper omelet and a banana/strawberry/raspberry smoothie, which I will count as a fruit serving.
If you compare Highwaygirl’s
posts and mine, you will notice a similar thread running through her topics. What can I say? We share a brain. She will back me up on this. We came to this each in our own ways but pretty much at the same time.
I just came to the realization that I was tied to my current life a little bit more than I wanted to be. Can I jet off at a moments notice? No. Can I chuck everything for the simple life? No. My stuff and my preconceived notions about my adult life are weighing me down. Time to lose some baggage. It starts with working on what’s important to me. Everything else is just stuff.
