TA DA/TO DO Thursday

I did some work in the garden but not as much as I should have. I just couldn’t get motivated to stay out there last week when it was nice and then of course this week so far has been, cold, wet and windy.

Looked for a Zumba DVD but they are all checked out of the library. I don’t want to buy one without checking it out first. Did try a different type of workout DVD but it made my knees hurt so I’m still looking for something.

If you have been reading this blog for any length of time you have surely noticed that I lack self-discipline. So, when I read at SuperSweetLife.com about the 21 Day Self-discipline Challenge, I decided to give it a try. They are usingĀ  Crystal Paine’s book 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life as a guideline to follow.

For the first day we are to pick out a small task that we have been avoiding and just get it done. I chose to put my credit card receipts in order so I can check them off with my statements. That went faily quickly as I knew it would. Why is it that I know it won’t take that long but I avoid, avoid and avoid??

The other assignment is to pick a “mega-project” and make a plan for completing it. Then do just the first step in the plan. Like so many of the others who are doing the challenge, I had some difficulty narrowing down my choices because there are so many undone projects around here.

In the end I decided to do something about the organization/clutter in this house. I am committing to at least 15 minutes of daily organizing and/or decluttering of the house. Today I started by going through some of the stuff on my desk. I made a dent but still have more to do.

Next week’s to dos are to spend 15 minutes on my “mega-project” and to do some type of weekly exercise to replace Zumba.

What is on your To Do List this week?
