Week 4 - 3 in 30 Update

Just as a reminder for us of what my goals were this month:
1.  Read up to Week 4 of Made to Crave and read the Lean.
2.  Organize my Pantry, Office, Laundry Room and Master Bedroom
3.  No Yelling
I've given up on the first one.  I may roll this over into December.  This could be a blessing or a curse as December is Christmas cooking and food month.  I will be praying that I can make it through.  I've felt very heavy and burdensome this last week.  I am tired of feeling defeated when it comes to food and tired of hating my body.  I did see the doctor this last week for my yearly physical.  It surprisingly was a light spot on my week.  He told me it appeared that I was pretty healthy.  When I said I was overweight, he looked at my chart and said "I've seen worse."  There is hope.

I am almost finished my laundry room.  This week we will be decorating so I can pull out the Xmas bins and sweep and organize that area.  I am very happy with the way it is looking.  I moved some bins and the workbench we have in it.  I labeled all the bins with what was in them.  Even Tman was happy.  He could read what was in each bin.  I was happy because I didn't have to pull off lids of each and every bin to find something.  

This is as close to my laundry room as anyone is going to see.  Just take me at my word.

No yelling....what was I thinking.  I lost it few times this week.  I am tired.  Period.  When I am tired, I get cranky.  When I am cranky.....well you know.  I have done pretty well, but not as well as I want to.  I finally pulled out a jar tonight.  I will be informing the kids that when I yell, I will put in a $1.  If they yell, they will owe me 30 minutes of electronics time.  I think that's fair.  the money at the end of the week will be for a treat for them.  Let's see who wins.

Can't wait to see how everyone else is doing.  Come join us at the 3 in 30 challenge at Welcome to Our Good Life.

Labels are the way to go with boxes you cannot see through. Love the $1/30 minute idea for yelling. I've put myself in time out a couple times getting ready for this move :)

I was just telling my hubby we need to label our boxes so we don't have to look into them each and every time.
I should try that no yelling rule. Although I must admit I am getting better, or else my daughter is getting better. LOL
