When I first became a mother I got a book/tape set called, Finally Organized...love that set. For decluttering it suggests:

Get some boxes from your local grocery store, label them yard sale and save. As you clean you place the items that you feel you can not live without in the save boxes and the rest in the yard sale boxes. You have a yard sale and put the save boxes in a closet or attic or garage until next yard sale season. Then, anything you haven't pulled back out of the boxes by the next season you put in your next yard sale.

You use the money from your yard sale to buy organizational tools, shelves or totes for seasonal decor and such that you use only certain times of the year and put away.

I am glad to hear you are still at your habit! I am too.

swimming, walking and de cluttering..
I think I am doing ok, but with no extra money to buy bins, our tables still have clutter ALLOVER them. crafts, toys, junk.
any suggestions? I cannot just put them in piles on the floor...
or trash bags... Maybe buy one bin at a time?

How are our habits going????

Anyone getting into the routine yet? Anyone anxious to add more?

100 crunches-DONE
Eliptic trainer fro one song on level 1 - 4:33 LOVE THAT ONE felt great...I WANT more...but no, the habit is WAY more important than overdoing it and having my back go out again.

Slow and steady, stay the course!!!

Glad to see you are feeling better, time heals when it comes to surgery!

Keep it up, slow and steady wins the race!

Sorry to hear that. Have you tried putting lotions on your hands to keep from biting your nails? The taste is not good.

The money goal, is kind of a tough one. I would suggest, for habit building, something you can do...like a simple exercise. Not everyone likes crunches so try something you are going to enjoy. SP have some demos at www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercis

demos.asp?exercise_type=core


Did anyone notice the great How To's and new videos they have now??? I love this site!

For me it is running 5 days a week and stopping having lunch out unless it is for business.

Most people never get past their first wind to know they have a second.

I am giving up ALL sweets except for berries and cherries. Tomorrow is my 58th birthday and I asked for strawberries instead of cake.

I will do at least 10 minutes of strength or cardio exercise everyday.

OK, I am 3 wks post op today from a skin cancer surgery on my lower eyelid. It has been painful and longer than I had anticipated. I have developed a new habit of going in the pool in the inner tube the past few days. I am addicted to that now. I cannot do much else for exercise as I just dont feel good a lot and by the end of the day the pain picks up again so I know I am not ready for full on exercises.
I did a minute of cleaning yesterday and got off the computer as much as I could, but new habits are slow right?
I took out the trash and that was all I could do. I made a big list of chores and felt very un motivated!
today, back I go to my good habit...
of... a chore. I think it has to be the pile of clothes on my bed.

Hmm, I'm good for saying that I'll do something but then not following through. I like your ideas of 100 crunches. I might try that. Also, as far as not drinking soda is concerned, you will be SO HAPPY that you stopped. May I suggest flavored seltzers as an alternative? My husband and I did the same thing, he stopped drinking regular soda (not that he drank a lot of it whatsoever) and I stopped drinking diet soda. We both so enjoy seltzer and don't miss the other stuff at all.

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.

Actually perfect timing for this for me. Just brought my husband to the airport and he will be gone at least 30 days. emoticon
I will try to start the habit of beginning each day with at least 20 minutes of exercise daily
and a habit I will try to break is eating in bed emoticon

To the extent that I can, I will pay bills as they come in (this after an excruciating day of paperwork, made more difficult by too much clutter).

As for quitting a habit... my nail biting is a lifelong struggle, but I've been doing okay in the last few weeks. I will continue to try not to bite them over the next 30 days.

Let's create a habit!

Choose ONE habit to create and ONE to delete over the next 30 days.

For me, I choose 100 crunches every day and I vow to not drink a single soda, diet or otherwise, for the next 30 days.

What ever you choose for yourself, make it a small step that will only take a minute or two. That way it is such a small task, how can you make excuses for taking just a minute each day towards a lifetime of change?

Post each day when it is completed.

Who's up for it?
