3 weeks and a thank you

Thank you all for your kind words on my last post. It was a tough one to write in that it was hard to post a picture of my not so awesome belly. But you guys totally lifted me up and mad me feel like a million dollars. So, thank you.

I have 3 weeks off of work that started this past Monday. Normally I make a mental list of things I want to accomplish while enjoying my time off. Unfortunately I'm not going anywhere on my vacation so I need to fill up my time.

I'm complied a list of things I'd like to accomplish while getting paid not to be at work. SCORE!

  • Workout at the very least every other day. (So far this is happening. I'm trying a new gym out for a week to see if I want to switch. I did a turbo kick class Monday night that I can still feel in the depths of my bones.)
  • Transfer spices from ugly store containers to pretty glass containers that I got at IKEA earlier this week.
  • Organize and purge the guest bedroom/office closet. (It's my dumping ground for all the random crap that I don't know what to do with. It's an awesome large closet which means it's stuffing potential is excellent.)
  • Keep up with tracking every single penny I spend. (So far, so good. I am truly amazed that I've already spent over $250 in groceries and it's barely been two weeks since I started writing everything down.)
  • Start writing down what I eat in a journal. (I have hit a plateau in weight loss and it's probably because I keep eating Swedish Fish (VEGAN!) at every chance I get.
  • Organize all of Jackson's clothes. (The kid has more clothes than your average fashionista. Speaking of Fashionista, have you guys seen this show? It's annoying and I can't stop watching it.)
  • Get a stupid lawn edger and edge my stupid yard, already. (My #1 dreaded chore.)
  • Organize my clothes by color and type. (I used to have a super organized closet, then I get pregnant, then I lost a few pounds, then all hell broke loose. I have clothes in 3 closets and I need to edit and purge and see what is worth hanging onto.
  • Keep up my running routine. (People! I started running! And I haven't died once!)
  • Organize pantry.
  • Take as many naps as humanly possible. (This should really be #1.)

Ugh...I did that damn anonymous thing again. Gotta stop being so click-hapyy.

I started a to-do-before-baby list, and it's ambitious and looooong.

You'll also have to get lunch or see a movie with me sometime over those three weeks.

Woman, you're my hero.

If I could come help, I would. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE to re-organize closets and clothes and I get on a "Clean Sweep" kick every so often, thanks to TLC and their former Saturday morning line-up.

I had goals like this when I got laid off. And all I've done is take naps.

Enjoy your time off!

NAP. I totally want to take some naps.
We need to meet up again soon! Before those 3 weeks are over and gone!
