An ah ha moment 12-29-2004 - 08:47 AM
I used to live in sweatpants in the winter, except for errand days. Well, two years ago I found "Flylady". One of her basic "rules" is get dressed to the shoes every morning, and sweatpants are a no no. My morning routine is pretty well established - make the bed as soon as I get out of it, swish and swipe the bathroom after my shower, get dressed, unload the dishwasher, etc. I've had a terrible time adding exercise to the morning routine, even though there is a wonder elliptical trainer in the bedroom, it would be sooo easy. But it takes me a while to come to life. Exercising in jeans - uh, no, so it requires changing clothes, or making an extra effort, planning. Most of my sweats were pretty ratty, so I got rid of them as part of my flinging, and didn't get any new ones. Yesterday I bought some. Today I'm wearing them, I can hope on the treadmill or get down on the floor and do some yoga or something whenever the mood strikes, so I figure I'm a step ahead now.

The last of the Christmas cookies were finished last night, today I'm working on getting the kitchen back under control; I have discovered that I really have to have organization to feel comfortable, and since the kitchen is where the food is, if it's neat it seems that my eating is easier to control also.

Back to work!

What is a Flybaby?

Me? Comfort is my number one rule - if jogging pants fit the bill, and I am at home - who cares? My MIL always chastises me saying "anyone can drop by from the post person to neighbours" my thoughts are - if they are not invited, and I am not expecting anyone, why should I give up my comfort for people who "may" drop by?

I guess in my own american way I am protesting the german formality principles!

As to exercise - hehe - my committment comes next year

(the lazy slug in a jogging suit! haha)

What or who is Flylady? Her name is Marla and she has a website at www.flylady.com It's home organization, but a lot more than that. For me there is a direct correlation between keeping my house organized and under control, and my moods, etc. I'm definitely an emotional eater.

MJ - ok, you caught me! I have some in a laundry basket to fold, and there is a load in the washer ready to go in they dryer. I'm going, I'm going!

Ahh so Flylady is sort of like Feng Shui with a bit more umph? I get it! I was wondering what a "flylady/baby" was. Thanks for clarifying.

I too find my household and moods correlate - either way mood bad, household looks off - and vice versa - you are definately NOT alone in that aspect.

It does not help that I am (or like to be) obsessive compulsive with order and cleanliness - but since my OP I have had to learn (ok still trying to learn) patience and it cannot all be done at once.

Go tackle that laundry - yesterday was laundry day for me
