It is going to be a slightly off topic entry, but since it is part of My 2013 Commitments (I’m not into the word “resolution”), I think it is worth writing about it.

We are already in October and for most part of the year, I did not work on inner self. I wanted, but did not really worked on it at all until really recently.


The trigger of me making this major change was my health. Even though I have been eating really clean for the last month, there were some triggers missing and I had to restart from scratch. I am still taking baby steps in reviewing my meals and workout routine, however the first positive signs are already showing.



Hormone free chicken & turkey. Real food!

So after setting my intake in a good track, it was moment to take another major weight from my shoulders: my lack of organization talent at home.

At work, I simply freak out with the slightest idea of having a messy desk. I do not bother cleaning things up every once and a while; changing places and reorganizing. But at home… It is like my brain cannot process information the same way when I cross the door.


Having chaos around me bothers me more than I can describe, still I had not found a way to work it out in a way that I could made this change permanent. I was so attached to the idea that I “couldn’t”…


Browsing aleatory sites, I bumped into FlyLady.net. The fun thing is that it was the first time I felt comfortable with the approach (believe me, I have a collection of books on the subject, with different models that simply did not work for me). She writes for perfectionists, freaks like me who think that if they cannot do it all at once, it is not worth even starting. And so there is clutter.

I am taking one step at a time, not putting too much pressure on myself. There is only that much I can do with the ‘free’ time I have in my hands and not feeling ‘obliged to’ has also helped me so much with my training and meal plans that it is worth to expand it to other aspects of my life. 


You can’t rush something you want to last forever.


Today, it has been a week since I started following this plan and since then, I have been getting rid of a lot clutter and I am excited about improving every day.


And you? How are your plans for this year ago?



Remember, there is still time to accomplish a lot before 2014 hits the door! Wishing everybody a lot of success.
