How could I have forgotten that I had whole wheat pumpkin cake in the freezer?! This illness must have scrambled my brain.
My appetite is definitely not back to normal, but it’s getting there. Good news- some foods sound appealing. Bad news- every food I ate on Tuesday (before I got sick) sounds horrible. I saw pomegranate seeds and mushrooms in my fridge and my stomach turned. Even squash! What is wrong with me?! I’m hoping it will pass, because no one else will eat them, and we all know I don’t waste food.
Dinner was what I’d like to call a ‘burrito pizza.’
I spread tomato sauce on a whole wheat tortilla and topped it with feta and spinach, rolled it up and ate it like a burrito. My mom always tells me to not eat dairy when I’m sick, but hey, it sounded good! Don’t worry, it tastes better than it looks.
I also had an unpictured bowl of granola. Probably too much food for this weak stomach!
Since I haven’t been doing much eating or exercising (and by much, I mean no exercising 🙂 ) in the past few days, I thought I would talk about one of my other resolutions, which is to work on my organization. Since I consider this blog a healthy living blog, I think this fits in. Why? Because being organized is good for my mental health!
I don’t consider myself an inherently organized person whatsoever. In fact, I used to be seriously disorganized. I wish I had pictures of what my room looked like when I was a kid- there was literally no room to walk anywhere because there was just stuff everywhere on the ground. I still share a room with my sister (yes, I’m 21 🙂 ) and she is also a former slob. Do you know what you get when you put two slobs together? A room that looks like a tornado went through it.
Thankfully, we have worked with our seriously limited space, and I’m happy to report that for the most part, our room remains pretty spic and span. This is no easy task when you consider that:
- We have no desk
- We have no closet
- We have no dresser
- Our room is probably the size of normal people’s bathrooms
But somehow, we’ve made it work. In lieu of a closet or dresser (the horrors!) we have beds with shelves built into the bottoms, where we keep our clothes. Let me be the first to tell you that those things are hard to shut if you have too many clothes in them. Guilty! So, my first order of business when I wanted to get more organized was to clean those suckers out. Not only do my drawers shut better now, that’s a lot less stuff I’ll have to lug when I move (maybe in May! AH!)
Don’t worry… some of that is my sister’s 🙂
It feels so good to re-organize my drawers and get rid of so much stuff! Now I just need to take it to Goodwill… it’s taking up serious space in the garage.
I’ve also found a new use for my picnic basket. Storing magazines!
I love this thing, but it takes up a lot of room. Now it multi-tasks!
Along with cleaning out my drawers, I also got rid of a lot of old schoolwork and notebooks and such. I think I’ve made a pretty good start on that resolution so far! That’s one I hope to stick with forever 🙂
Do you consider yourself an organized person? What are your organization tips? I could definitely use some!
