Alright, I’m going to begin the process of figuring out what aspects of my life (all of them) I want to improve on, and what steps I need to take to get there. I’m still debating on if I’m going to maintain my lists online, in a document that I print off, or just written out by hand, but I might as well start here.


Things I need to do to get fit. I don’t have a specific weight-loss goal or anything, just a general desire to become more active overall. Some things I can do to make this possible:

  • walk the dogs
  • ride my bike
  • take the stairs
  • morning Pilates/Yoga
  • evening workouts

sleep schedule

I obviously need to go to bed earlier, and also wake up earlier. I attempted a Morning Person class once already this year and it didn’t really stick… But they’ve started it up again, making a few tweaks based on participant reviews, so I’m going to give it another go. I’m not off to a great start considering they’ve already sent out nine lessons, and I’ve only opened the first email, but I plan on taking it nice and slow so I don’t get overwhelmed.


I don’t have a lot of lofty goals here, either. I just want to eat a smidge better overall.

  • cut down on restaurant foods
  • healthy breakfasts
  • healthy lunches
  • home-cooked dinners
  • maybe try Soylent

home improvement

Listen. I’ll be the first to tell you my home needs a little TLC. Cleaning, home renovation, organization, etc. It all needs some work.


  • do a surface sweep every day
  • use my checklists again (or for the first time, really)

home renovation

  • finish. the. g. d. bedroom.
  • get the stairwell painted
  • hang curtains
  • make macrame hanging
  • get flooring quotes
  • start on guest bedroom


  • force Mr. T to do a clothing purge
  • shelves in the half bath


Anyway, that’s enough for now. I’m still mulling over the best way to organize this…surely if I create just the perfect checklist it will motivate me into being awesome, right?? *weeps*

  1. I recently got Husband to do a clothing purge (he had a dresser worth of just nerd shirts) by moving. Does that help? ;)

    Best of luck with all of it my dear, I know the house stuff is especially difficult with lots of animals.

Tell me how you REALLY feel:
