On Cleaning

23 Jul

Have you ever hit a plateau in your training or weight loss? No matter how hard you try, no matter what you do, you can’t seem to make any ground with trimming your waistline or losing those stubborn pounds?

A couple of days ago I reevaluated my goals and created some new ones, ones that aren’t daunting or could potentially have me crash and burn in the process. One of things I didn’t talk about is the cleanliness/messiness of my home, desk, car, to-do list and outstanding errands. When I looked around my house I saw a series of unfinfished projects: boxes with Christmas decorations, 90% painted walls, a pile of dishes in the sink, old unopened junk mail scattered in about five places, wedding invitiation reply cards, old shoe boxes, art supplies, cooking magazines and those were just the living room and kitchen. Then there were the 50 emails I had marked for follow-up and the ten voice mails that had I had yet to listen to… AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

No wonder I’ve been stressed out and feeling burnt out. Everywhere I looked everything was a mess. How could I possibly eat clean if the spaces around me were messy and in such turmoil?

No wonder I’ve been feeling so funky and it’s been so hard to produce the results to the degree I’ve been wanting to. My brain has been filled up with tasks to complete and things to stress about rather than being consious to my workouts and eating. It’s no wonder I’ve been wanting to eat cookies and drink chocolate milk for dinner, the space around me is not clean.

Eating clean has me feel great but if the space I am living in is a mess it makes clean eating that much harder. Go ahead. Clean up the mess around your home, your car, your office and see what happens. 🙂
