Everyweek I set some non-weight loss related goals--but they are things which would support my life and my weight loss efforts. Last week I set two goals like that 1) to do my dishes every night before bed (no dishwasher) and 2) to catch up and keep up with the laundry.
I didn't accomplish either of them. And I don't know if I should set them again--or give up and regroup.
Now, this post is not so much about dishes and laundry--it's about being discouraged when I've set goals and not met them. What do you do?
If this were a weightloss goal: lose 2 lbs--and I didn't do it, we would back up and look at the things which support getting the goal accomplished. You would ask me how many calories I was consuming, when I was eating, whether I was exercising and so on.
But what are the questions for dishes and laundry? I'm truly stumped. I don't know how to fix this--and the forums where I would ask no longer exist. (Organized Home run by Cynthia Townley.)
What do I do? I'm so down--I feel like such a failure, it's ridiculous. And yes, I have been struggling with these sorts of things (house keeping things in particular) for years. (And yes, I've tried flylady.)
I could probably write the book: and I've read lots of them. But I'm hopeless. That's how it feels.
Can anyone help?
PS: I am a sahm. And I was reading in a procrastinaton book last night about how folks like me have completely unstructured time. And it is true. I have very few external constraints on my time. That may be a factor--but I can't assess it.
