11/30: Certainty and Thankfulness
Monday, November 30, 2020
Today on this last day my 30 days of Thankfulness I thank you, my Spark friends and Sparkpeople for offering us the framework to support each other.
As I look to December I see another month of possibility and one of joy. I'm a big believer in self-help books and online support resources and groups. I also believe in setting the bar very high. I asked myself what do I want in December. The 3 things that came to mind were:
1) Clean and Paint the Trim in the house...baseboards, spindles on staircase etc. This will take much longer than one month, but I want this started next month and finished by the end of 2021.
2) Weight loss. I'm looking for a 10.2 lb loss between now and 12/31. I believe it is totally possible with intermittent fasting and I speak from experience. My current 6-8 hour window of eating what I want has been giving me a rollercoaster trip over the past month and it's time to get off this ride.
3) Organize and reduce clutter/items we are no longer using. Yesterday I took 3 large hefty bags to goodwill. 2 were filled with clothing and 1 had other household items. Getting rid of my clothing has been a challenge. I have a lot of "hope it fits again clothing" and then there are the work clothes I'll likely never wear again but am not ready to get rid of them yet. How do you all deal with this?
4) Embrace creativity time. Winter is a perfect time to stitch or quilt. This is one of the habits I plan to do everyday. 20 minutes per day. It's a way to keep my hands busy and it has nothing to do with the kitchen!
