Ok, so I have to start preparing my menu for the next 2 weeks since I joined the sizzling hot summer challenge which starts April 1 and ends May 27th. I am trying to do whatever it takes to motivate me to continue on this path of weight loss. I weighed myself this morning and I'm still 268, now I haven't cheated but my brain feels as though I have because I feel as though I'm cutting corners on my South Beach plan and that in the long run it can only hurt my results. Now keep in mind I'm suffering from minor PMS symptoms (thank you Optivite PMT) which means my perception of things and myself can be quite off.
After realizing that I am overwhelmed with my need for perfection and my disappointment at not being perfect I am going to give myself a break and do what needs to be done (did that make any sense?).
I am baking today and menu planning, in the future Sunday will be my baking day (please Lord oh please let me stay organized with this). I found this really great site I'm an Organizing Junkie that I'm hoping I'll have a chance to learn something from to help me get organized.
I fought organization for 3 years now, I use to be a very organized person, I needed it to feel good about myself but I realize now that I still need organization in my life and it's hard to get back into it! So hopefully this blog will give me some tips and hints on how to get more organized in my life.
This is what I'm making later tonight after I finish working...
Mini Turkey Patties
Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Soup
Spaghetti with my own homemade marinara sauce.
I'm looking for a few more things to add to this but it's a great beginning.
I'll let you know when I start!
