    Well I've had an epic morning so far !!

    Up, dressed, breakfast, washed dishes and made beds before the school run
    came back and have
    taken all the bins out
    put the dishes away
    wiped down the kitchen surfaces
    swished and swiped the bathroom
    got the washing machine going
    sent an urgent email

    Now I am goign to walk 2 miles to collect my hubby's car from the station for him. When I get back if there is time I will tidy the lounge, before work. AFter work I need to nip to Asda for a few things, before collecting the youngest from school

    My project for the week is to clear my huge ironing bakclog by doing a bit each day.
    I'm also going to set up my 'control' journal.






    I Dont want it all -I just want enough

    Only bikers understand why dogs stick their heads out of car windows !

    Behind every successful man is a successful woman,rolling her eyes

    I need to follow your lead! (ironing and control journal)

    I've had coffee, water, let the dog out/in, fed dog, fish, saw DD, DH and DS off. Cleaned up sink (fist time in ages I left land to soak). Cleared up breakfast. Washer is loaded -- and will be started soon...

    Oh, I weighed and am going to give the "by the book" VLCD a go. Start weight 11 st 7 lbs. Two stones to go. If I was very, very lucky -- I could do it before I leave for Florida on March 30, but I doubt I will. But, I will be closer than I am now.

    I have went through the weekly fly summary & written on my calendar what I want to do each day. Today I've already done what I need to -returning all items to their home from living room & hall, landing & stairs areas.

    Tumble dryer is on, beds are made & I am dressed.

    I need to go do daily chores though - dishes, laundry etc.

    Sent from my new ARCHOS tablet :-)

    First day VLCD done!

    Kitchen cleaned (floor, counters, dishes), living room (vacuumed, light dusting, cobwebs cleared, window and French doors cleaned on inside), dinner made, laundry in progress, DD to swim lesson, and a quick shop accomplished. Dinner cleaned up --

    No ironing or control journal work, but FitBit set up!

    Wow you've all been busy! The nightly washing up is still going well and Mr Taz is getting on board with it too, with prompting of course! Yesterday I got the storage boxes I need to get some more sorting done so I have that to look forward to today
    Failure doesn't happen until you give up trying!

    It becomes a habit. I'm glad your DH is participating.

    Good morning.

    Already cleared up breakfast dishes, verified with neighbor mum that I'm bringing Her DD back from piano. (She finally got in with my DD's tutor and the tutor gave them back to back lessons to help with the neighbor's transport issues -- neither she not get husband are home earlier to pick her up. She can walk from school.)

    I have worked on the laundry, had a cup of coffee and glass of water! . I'm about to hang up clothes to dry, strip beds, change into fitness clothes and try that an workout in "Healthy Living". I'll be back to update later! Fun times.

    Re: de-cluttering the home, as well as body & mind

    Hi ladies, I was wondering if I could join you? I've managed to get my eating under control, now need to sort my house (which looks like I've been burgled!). I seem to be on an endless cycle of tidying up, everyone makes it messy again within an hour, I can't be bothered to tidy again and any evidence that I had a tidy house disappears for a good week.

    Need to sort it as it's getting embarrassing now!

    Could I please join you?
    Hules x


    Targets: * 7lbs * 7lbs since restart * 1 stone * Can get back in my jeans * Halfway to 11st (12st 6.5lbs(1st 6.5lbs)) * 1 1/2st lost * 10% (12st 5.5lbs(1st 7.5lbs)) * Can get my amazing black dress back on * Finish C25K (again) * Run 5K (again) * 2st off * 2 1/2st off * Get to 11st (goal!) * Feel fab for the hen/wedding *

    Welcome Hules!

    We highly recommend having a look at the FlyLady website (a bit OTT) but she has a cleaning on a schedule thing, along with loads of other organizational tips.

    Also, there are books out that talk about how the same mentality that leads to weight gain and the inability to lose it, is similar to that of hoarding. So, we're battling our double demons of Clutter and what the FlyLady calls "Body Clutter".

    Welcome Hules!

    I have a similar problem. There are only the 2 of us in the house but I can spend time getting the kitchen all tidy and organised and Mr Taz will come home from work and make some toast and when I go back to the kitchen it would be like I'd never cleaned! Toast crumbs all over the work top, buttery knife on the board, and he doesn't see the problem! Men!!!
    Failure doesn't happen until you give up trying!
