*UPDATE 7/9/12: Follow me on Facebook to see my daily updates on this challenge!!!*
, guys. I'm pathetic. This is the fourth day this week that it's pushing noon and I'm still in my pajamas. Oh, who am I kidding?? Yesterday I changed from my pjs into my workout clothes around 4 pm. It's my second day of not brushing my hair. I need help. I'm in a rut.
I'm in that stage of pregnancy that (besides the fatigue) I just feel cranky and chubby. I don't so much look pregnant, just like I haven't been hitting the gym like I should. And I hate my bellybutton. It sticks out already because it herniated last year when I was pregnant with Hudson.
I need some structure in my life. I need a schedule. I need...something.
I've been looking at all these blogs of these women with thier daily schedules and home management binders and What I Wore posts and honestly it just makes me overwhelmed. I want to be like them. But it all seems so time consuming and like it takes A LOT of motivation, which is something I'm lacking.
So, dear readers, I'm challenging myself. I'm setting some goals. Mama's clawing herself out of this rut.
I'm giving myself one major goal and two minor goals a week. Sounds doable, right?
Rut Busting Week 1 Goals:
Major: Early to bed, early to rise.
Seems easy, right? Nope. I like to stay up and browse Pinterest while watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix until 1 am. And then I sleep until my kids get up, which is around 9-ish or later (be jealous). So basically my daily chores and errands don't start until at least 10:30. And then I hear my mother's voice ringing in my head that "half the day is gone".
What I want to do is go to bed a little after 10:00 and rise around 7:00. That way I have time to get dressed, eat, do Bible study, and start a few chores before I have deal with Hurricane Hudson.
Minor: COMPLETE one load of laundry every day.
That means not just restarting the dryer every three hours because they need to "fluff" before I fold them....and then never folding them.
Minor: Make myself presentable when I get up and get the kids out of their pajamas right after breakfast.
Considering one of my children can dress himself, the last half of that goal shouldn't be that hard. What's going to be hard is getting myself dressed. I want to be comfy, but cute and we have very little ($0) for my clothing needs so this will take some creativity on my part. First thing in the morning. God help me.
I'm doing this, ya'll. I'll keep you posted on my progress and will give myself a pass or fail grade at the end of next week.
If you're like me and you're unmotivated and bogged down, then join me in this challenge.
