FlyLady.net is also a good resource for people looking to better their housekeeping skills. Oddly enough.. Flylady always made me feel hectic and fed into my obsession with planning instead of doing. I could sit down and happily spend a whole work week creating a detailed room by room list of what ...

Sounds awesome! Let us know how it works for you. I don't have kids, but I did have a feast and famine outlook on cleaning. I'd avoid it feeling guilty for days and then do a big clean up and start the cycle over. My solution was just to make themes for N-days. Monday's theme is "make and mend" tha...

My vote is focus on food first and I'll tell you why. My ex was REALLY over weight to the point that he could not go for daily walks around the block without causing joint damage. When we focused on food he was able to not only loose some of the weight that was bogging him down, but also gain the en...

Only two days into January but I've written something both days. I've set a goal of three sentences per N-day, and Wednesday is my "writing" day so I'll be spending at least an hour each Wednesday focusing on writing. There's a lot more to my schedule and I'll make a post later but I thought I'd tel...

As I said, your not going to deadlift 1000 pounds from this, but your going to get strong as hell. Enough to pick up your girlfriend and twirl her around all romantically and shit.
That's all we ask. :)

:idea: Andrew you may have just found the cure. :)

I'm starting a day planner in January and since the holidays are going to be a mess I'll start this then. (There's a lot of "daily" stuff I'm starting in January including training for my new job)

Thanks for your help.

The voice of common sense... :)

The reason I was thinking of changing is that I tend to stress that I won't have time to get it done.... Then I meet the goal in week 3 and slack til next month. I don't want to raise my goal but I can't seem to shake the early (and end of month) procrastination.

Didn't work. I blurted out a story today. (868 words) Maybe in January when I'm going to have a more steady schedule. I think my problem might be worrying that if I go slow something will happen and I won't finish it.

I'm more of a ... I don't really know what it's called but I spew words on the page in one big blarg. Whether it's just a scene over the course of an hour or a whole story in the course of a weekend. It seems that a steady work flow would benefit me because this feast and famine model creates a bit ...

Thanks for your input. :D I currently have a personal goal of two short stories, flash fic, or chapters of a longer story per month. (so far 350-3500 words each, averaging 1566 each over 12 stories/chapters) The idea of splitting up the writing into daily chunks interests me. Do you do a point form ...

We have something similar in our city along the river. I use it for "just because" walks and for when I want to take the pretty route even if it's not the most direct. They aren't maintained in the winter though so many times it's not safe due to ice.

I'm not here to diet.

Every where it I look in these boards people are talking about NoS and ShovelGlove. It's awesome and I'm glad they've found something that works for them but is there anyone here who's like me? I'm content with my weight and my eating patterns are still evolving but I have the moderation bit down al...

I'm soon starting a new job and the pay schedule is twice monthly instead of every two weeks so I knew I'd need some help adjusting to this new budget. I used to try to leave half my bill money from the first pay and pay all the bills when the second came in and if there was a third (once or twice a...
