VLCD day #17 - 123.3

- .1 from my pre-load weight and a number I am much more comfortable with than 125. My other scale that lost its mind is now pretty consistent again, weighing about a half pound less than the new one. I'm logging the higher weight.

My headache is all but gone. HAPPY DANCE! The ones I get aren't so bad that I'm bed ridden, but bad enough that it affects everything I do. I have to move slooooowly which certainly doesn't help cleaning and sorting.

Because I used to move every 6 months or so, it forced me to sort before each move. I never held on to anything that I hadn't touched for 6 months, unless is was seasonal. 2 years ago, I pretended I was moving while sorting my kitchen and I ended up with bags and bags of stuff that was either donated or thrown out depending on its condition.

As you all know, I'm restless as all get out so I plan on taking each room and packing as if I'm moving, only instead of into boxes, it will be piles - ones that stay and get re-organized and the others that go. I wanted to start Monday but I felt so awful I couldn't manage. Today is the day. I'm going to blast music and make a good first stab at it. First the living room and the kitchen and then my office, and then I'll attack the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms. It will probably take a couple weeks to do a proper job but it must be done. I am housecleaning my soul and body, and it's time to do the same with my surroundings. The energy is stagnant and it's TIME to get it FLOWING and GLOWING again!
