Liar liar

I’m the biggest liar huh? While honestly I would love to update this thing regularly I’ve accepted I am one of THE worst at time management. No joke, it’s pathetic.

I had my beautiful baby girl in December & she’s been absolutely AMAZING! Sadly, I’m back to work but I loved my time off with her & look forward to spending my evenings with her. She’s a super good baby which helps things also – she’s absolutely the best!

I always try to do updates after being MIA so here goes:

The budget is still non existent. I try & I at least plan out most of my paychecks but I can’t grasp the budget in a way that will work for more. I haven’t given up though & still pin stuff to read later when I’m browsing pinterest at the early AM feeding. I’m hoping one day it will click for me.

The nesting didn’t really last. I did some stuff but my house is still a disaster. It’s so far from what I want it to be. I don’t know how people have such clean & nice homes most of the time. They can’t have dogs that shed & a full time job lol Sweeping I don’t mind & it doesn’t take long but I can never seem to stay on top of the dog hair it’s crazy. Laundry is about the only thing I can keep up good with & that’s pushing it because I make it all the way to being folded but struggle with getting it into the drawers. At least we have clean clothes though, right?

I’ve been in the mood a lot recently to just purge & get rid of the stuff especially since we don’t have the room for it & I’ve had it with being cluttered in. So here’s to hoping the mood stays with me. I remember back when I did a big cleaning before I was with Paul & had the front bedroom showing SO much carpet & I was so proud. The kiddo is in there now & the poor guy has a good bit of our clutter to deal with simply because we don’t have room at this house. Some of it can go though & I plan to go through it soon to get rid of it. I want him to like his room & for him to want to keep it clean.

We really don’t have any broken or junk stuff, we just have a lot of stuff we don’t exactly NEED. It could be useful stuff IF we had the room for it. That’s the mentality I have to get past – that just because it’s still good & useful doesn’t mean I need to keep it. I don’t have the room for it therefore it’s of no use to me. Paul is bad about that too which doesn’t help things but we’re both trying to purge down what we can as we still continue to combine 3 houses – yikes. I’ll try to update this more, I promise. Hopefully I’ll be back with tons of great before & afters … hopefully.

Procrastination

I don’t know what it is that makes me procrastinate so much when it comes to new routines, life changes, etc. I’m a huge procrastinator in general which I feel is a terrible quality to have. You’d think by me realizing that I would change it, but I don’t. At least in the end when I get around to doing said things, I don’t half ass them. I might do them late or have bad timing, but by golly when I do it – I give it my all. That being said, I haven’t started any of my resolutions yet – am I on the ball or what? I keep thinking that when I start walking/running that it will become an addiction like I read about where you almost have to run because you feel the need. I want that need & desire but I have to get off the couch first to make that happen! I will say when I was doing Turbo Fire regularly or even Zumba that I felt much better & had more energy. I’ve definitely¬†felt drained since I stopped going.

I plan to start the exercise goal tonight. I downloaded a free app called C25k Free. I read about it on someone’s blog & checked out the first part of it &¬†it seems like a great way to get started (I hope so anyway!). So [fingers crossed] I attempt to get my butt in gear tonight & at least walk at the park if nothing else. I might start turbo fire back up too – maybe for raining days or something because it definitely gets my heart pumping & I do feel better afterwards. I like that extra energy & the good endorphins feeling. All of these good things will have to wait until this evening as I’m stuck at work until 4:30 [thumbs down]. I could walk while I’m at work but stupid me wore backless shoes today & there’s no way I’m walking in these bad boys. I attempted it once before & it was a bad idea.

I started today with a pounding headache & then back pain – let’s hope tonight ends better than this morning started.
