I haven't posted all week, though I have sat down to do so about 4 times. I managed to sneak downstairs this morning without waking anyone, so I have a few minutes to give an update on the NYR's:
No TV: Ha! Well, we are still fasting from TV that we like.... And we are watching less TV than before. But, I have turned it on during nap time this week, twice, in an attempt to get the Larryboy theme song out of my head. Not that there's anything to watch. *hint: come back for Nm!M and I'll tell you what I didn't watch.* The boys still watch at least one movie everyday (though many of their movies are 45 minutes long). It's better, but not perfect.
No Pop: This one has been perfect, and by that I mean I haven't caved, though I have come close. Very close. My scale hates me. And if I haven't lost any weight in this whole month-of-NO-Pop, by the time it's over, I am going to start drinking it again, if only on the weekends. I need my pacifier, and if I'm not reaping the benefits along my waistline, then what's the point?? *pouts* And seriously, don't say anything about the dang Sweet Tea - I barely drink any, and have gone more than one day without a glass of it. I used it to get me through the first 10 days or so. I cannot go cold turkey.
More organized: The pantry is MUCH more organized, now. And, I have had Chad take a TON of stuff to the Salvation Army. I like to purge the house. I call it reverse shopping. I get the same endorphin release from getting junk OUT that I normally get from bringing new stuff in! I have TUBS full of clothes that I have been saying for a few months now, that I would put on ebay, but, I might just donate those too. It's a lot less work to donate than it is to sell.... Anywho - I guess I'm doing pretty good on this one.
So, there you have it, friends. If I can do it, anyone can. :-)
