I Really Meant to!

April 7th, 2014 at 07:46 am

Declutter, that is.

Well, I did some. I cleaned off my desk, which was stacked with mail. Most of that went into the garbage, and the important stuff was filed.

Since I have new sheets, I cleaned out the sheet drawer and set some aside for drop cloths. I had two brand-new king-size top sheets that I was saving for sewing projects. I admit now that that will never happen, so they are going to Goodwill.

And since I have new saute pans, I took the old pans off the rack and they are going to Goodwill, too.

And I untangled the wires behind my TV set. That was in the process of trying to make Netflix work. Did anyone else have buffering problems this weekend? I finally gave up. I may cancel if I continue to have problems. Don't really like watching a show two minutes at a time.

I did two more loads of laundry. And I advanced several more levels in Candy Crush. OK, a major time-waster there.

On Sunday evening, I went out to dinner with my DIL's mother. The kids are in Florida for spring break, so we are both at loose ends. We went to a local restaurant that is a refurbished firehouse. I maintained my diet and had thai chicken salad, $13, counting tip. My dinner partner had a big burger that made me salivate, but in the end I was satisfied with what I had.

I'm supposed to go out to lunch with a colleague today, but she's having plumbing problems, so it might not happen. Luckily, I do have food on-hand in the break room fridge.

Tomorrow I'm taking the day off to get my x-ray and to meet with both the ortho surgeon and the physical therapist. I went to the x-ray facility on Saturday without checking hours (bad me!) and of course it was closed.

Spent $38 on groceries. I bought 18 items this time, mostly because Green Giant frozen vegetables were on sale for $1, and I stocked up. They are great for lunches.

I did not do my state taxes -- procrastinating, procrastinating.

I have stayed under my calorie limit on myfitnesspal every day since I started. Though yesterday was VERY CLOSE. I do not plan to weigh myself again till Friday.

I guess that's all folks!

    I think the few things you did count as decluttering. A little bit at a time when you can does add up to less stuff. I tend to go over on calories on the weekend since I don't usually workout, but I'm still losing weight. As I get closer to my goal I will need to tweak that.

    I stocked up on the GG veggies a couple months ago when I saw them on sale for $1 too. Big Grin They do make a great lunch/supper addition. Smile
