I started blogging so that my family could see my children and keep up with as they grow. I love to sew and used to blog about that here on occasion. Now, I blog about my creations at miymdiary.blogspot.com with a friend. Stay here for to read about my family and visit the other blog for more on sewing!

Getting motivated!

So, I have been watching the tv series I Can Make You Thin. It has been very motivational. It was only five episodes, so it is over now.

In the first episode (which I missed) you learned to
1.eat when you are hungry
2.eat what you want (no diet foods necessary)
3.eat consciously (pay attention to your eating and nothing else-don't read or watch tv)
4.stop when you are full (satisfied).

These seem like obvious things, but do we really do this? I definitely don't have a problem with the second one. It is not a quick fix diet, it is a change in your life- how you view food and yourself. It was really motivating- not just for eating better, but now I feel motivated to do the laundry and clean the house. It has definitely helped me so far.

I just finished cleaning the kitchen! It looks so nice and it makes me wish the backsplash was done. I also started some laundry, folded the laundry Jeff did yesterday and put it away. Jeff will be excited to know he doesn't have to fold it.
I am trying to finish organizing the sewing room (previously the play room). We bought wall cabinets and hung them, but they need to be loaded up with all my sewing and craft supplies. I don't know where to start. I just want all the extra stuff to disappear. I have too much. (I should be thankful as there are man who probably have too little) I wish Catherine would come and help me clean out all the things I don't need. She is the voice of reason (but probably not to herself as no one ever really does that for themselves).

I am also trying to make the curtains for the girl's rooms. They go to be when it is still light outside and they have a hard time falling asleep. The hardware is expensive- probably $50 for the roman shades and then I need a curtain rod for Natalie's curtains. I wish I could just hang up a sheet, but that would look horrible! At least I already have all the fabric (I've had it forever it seems).
I will post pictures when I finish.

I am also hoping to finish the slipcover for the sofa. So here is my review:
1. put sewing room together
2. make curtains
3. finish slipcover

I am giving myself till the end of April! Hope I can get it done. Check back for pictures of the finished products at the beginning of May. I will do it.
