I’m guessing that if you are reading this blog you have some interest in decluttering. But then again, I am currently reading a blog about knitting and I do not knit. I have no interest in knitting. I am too chubby to look good in bulky knitted items. But, wow! That knitter lady writes one funny blog! As soon as I figure out how all this stuff works, I’ll post a link. Actually, I’ll wait until I attract a following because if you start reading that other blog you might get so involved you will forget to check mine. Heck, I’m enjoying hers so much I have to remind myself that I have my own blog to write.
Anyway, I wanted to tell you about a book I am reading called, “Clear Your Clutter With Feng Shui” by Karen Kingston. I bought this quite awhile ago but I don’t think I ever read it. I am not into Feng Shui or any of that new age-y stuff but this book was recommended by the FlyLady so I bought it. I’ve only read about 30 pages so far but I think it might prove helpful. I’m not sure I buy all that the author says, although I must admit I’m hoping she’s right about how decluttering one’s home can lead to weight loss.
Which leads me to the third part of today’s title: pumping iron. We have turned our son’s old bedroom into what we call our exercise room. We have a very nice treadmill (complete with book holder so I can read and walk) and a weight machine in there, as well as a t.v./VCR/DVD set up for all those exercise tapes/dvds I have purchased. Some have even been unwrapped! I am hoping that if I keep actually using this stuff I will become that svelte person I just know lives inside me. I didn’t have a weight problem until after having kids and going to nursing school. And since that time I have lost significant amounts of weight on a couple of occasions so I have faith that I can do it again. It’s really so disappointing to discover that a shelf full of diet books and an exercise room are not enough. I guess I will actually have to change my eating habits and use that equipment. Darn!
Well, that’s all I have time for right now. It took me at least twelve tries to get this “create a post” site to load properly before I could type this. And now I need to get ready to go meet a friend for lunch, get my hair colored, er, I mean “highlighted”, and then do the dreaded Wally World thing. Catch y’all later!
