empty room


Another day clearing out that damn junk room! We moved all the "to keep" boxes and furniture into the house or garage, depending how precious they were. The hardest item was the treadmill. How on earth did we get it in there originally, fully assembled? We damaged the fly screen door forcing it out. And it's only temporary, we'll have to put it back in again later!

Then we (I say we, but I didn't do much of this bit) ripped up all the old carpet tiles and swept/shovelled up the old glue and backing stuck onto the concrete floor. That stuff all went into the little corners and cracks left in the very full skip bin. So now the room is ready for the new flooring.

I need to somehow get back to basics with my health plan. I'm sleeping so poorly, but I don't know how to fix that. More exercise maybe? Get back into some meditation? My water intake is not bad, but my food isn't great. I have good intentions, but give in to every impulse to eat whatever I like. I know I have been under a lot of stress so I'm forgiving every past mistake, but I don't want to keep using that as an excuse. Life is never perfect, I need to deal with that and keep my health plans going smoothly and consistently in the background as Sean would say. I think not getting enough sleep weakens my resolve a lot. Trying to make each day a little better than the last.


  1. I haven't found the formula to sleep well but I know when I'm stress, sleep is the first thing that suffer. Then I stress because I don't sleep well, and the cycle continue until I sleep one good night. Exercise and meditation doesn't seem to help me much :(

    Maybe you should bring back your report card, it kept you accountable daily.

  2. May it be to your advantage to keep a daily journal ... or similar ... I know many people can find this very helpful.

    Take Care

    All the best Jan
