Change is gonna come

Yesterday I decided to try a revolutionary new concept: working. It went well, I'm going to do it again today. Well, as soon as I finish eating my breakfast and dropping some players from my Fantasy Football team. I would like to point out that team Perry the Platypus was victorious in its first week! Now, I'm going to change my tagline to: You're about to lose to a girl. Fantasy Football is much more stressful (fun stress) than I thought it would be. Last night during the Chargers game I had to turn off the t.v. because I was getting so mad that my players weren't getting me points. Anyway, let's get to the title of this post. Y'all during the summer I have gotten so lazy. I stopped cleaning my kitchen every day, I stopped vacuuming at the frequency I require to be happy, I wasn't remotely on time for work, I didn't work while at work, it was just an all around bad situation. As I was sitting around reading "Real Simple" magazine one weekend, there was an article about what families did to stay on task in the mornings. I was so inspired to get my lazy self back on track. I went and picked out all my clothes for the week. I went into the kitchen and fixed TheCount and my breakfast for the next morning. I washed my fruit and prepared my lunchbox. I put my morning devotional books in the bathroom so I can read over them while I'm still trying to rev up and get moving. I read them before I shower so I can have 15 minutes of uninterrupted meditating on what I read. I haven't left any dishes in the sink overnight. I've made sure to take steps to insure that I would have a decent hairstyle in the morning. I feel my old organized calm self coming back- and I like it. TheCount and I are also beginning to look for locations for our fall hikes so we can make sure we keep our bodies looking good all winter because we've pretty much stopped exercising. Maybe my mind was still on school mode. Hustle hard September through May, then relax. I guess I have to remember I'm a grown up now. "Real Simple" always has tips that I love and use often, it's one of the many magazines I subscribe to. My current list is: Real Simple, Food Network, Bon Appetit, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar (I haven't gotten one yet) and Essence. I'm dropping Essence from my roster. I have never been inspired by anything in there and read more annoying things than useful, so it's time to let it go.
What about you? What changes are you making for the fall? What are your current favorite magazines?

Hmmm...didn't plan on making any changes, but I guess I should go sit down somewhere and think about it..lol. Maybe I'll subscribe to real simple.

It sounds like you've got yourself a real smooth routine there.

dang, I was just mentally noting the changes and my personal plans for the fall and here you are posting about yours and asking.

At any rate, here's a few on my long list:

* new contacts
* start taking multi vitamins
* wash hair twice a week and deep condition once a week or every other week
* start walking twice a week
* eat less junk and more vegetables
* use waterpik nightly
