Do you procrastinate?

I started doing this blog because I was finding so many blogs on different items to help me get more organized and feel better about myself. Not to mention, I love to write and make friends! I let little things get in the way of my goals everyday. Frustration plays a big part! Not only do I have a medical issue that is causing fatigue or lack of energy but I am also a procrastinator. I've got big, awesome plans and never (well maybe I shouldn't say never...sometimes don't) follow through. Have you ever said, it's just the way I am? That is my excuse to myself. Well, I am here to tell you that I am changing the way I am to an improved Chele! I have great intentions and it's time to see them through!

The last month or so, I have been surfing the internet looking for ideas to help me. I have found a site called that talked about a Household Notebook. Here is where I found many of the sites I now visit everyday. I was so excited about it and started it. It sits beside my desk unfinished! I plan on continuing with it in the near future. Honestly the only thing I continued doing is a menu plan. I have some sites I still need to check out that help with ideas for this. More to come on this one! I love the idea of a schedule and everything in it's place but the daily routine has been my downfall. It needs some serious work.

I also found an awesome site about organizing and being a Mom. She was starting a Spring Cleaning Party. What a wonderful idea! Problem is, we just moved into a new home that is much, much smaller and I got too frustrated. Also, in the middle of the party I had family come down which threw me off. I decided to keep watching the comments and her blog to keep the motivation to start this on my own in a few weeks (after our yard sale to get rid of lots of stuff!) You won't regret it if you check Simple Mom out! You can actually start on day one, I am sure she won't mind for you to join in!

Last week, I was told for my medical issue of fatigue and lack of energy to change my diet and exercise. I am one of those that makes the quick meals. Comfort foods. I am also one of those that the only exercise I get is because of the kids and cleaning the house! This is going to be life changing. I have already been working on some things. Although, I have no idea how to eat healthier. Then I was invited by one of the blogs I read to join in on an Eat more Fruits and Veggies Challenge going on at her site. I read it and it is going to help so much. Please if you are struggling with eating healthy this is a great way to start! The site itself is a great read! You can view Heavenly Homemakers for some great inspiration. I will be posting updates on how I am doing with this very soon!

I figured the eating healthier challenge was the most important right now. Especially because it will hopefully help with my lack of energy which in return will help me do the cleaning party successfully (even if it's by myself!). The notebook is just an awesome idea and will be so helpful once I get it in order. I suggest trying to plan your meals. It helps with so much when you know what you are going to eat that day. Before it is too close to dinner to make a great dinner! :)

I am telling you all of this to let you know of the awesome bloggers out there that I know are going to change my life for the better. If I can do it, you definitely can do it! Of course, with God's help I can be that better Woman, Mom, and Wife! The encouragement of doing things together with others and the motivation it gives is a miraculous thing!

Keep checking back I am also trying to make the blog easier for you all and better looking. I have found a blog which had a free ebook to help me with this process. I have enjoyed reading her blog, it has caught my attention. Check out Scribbit, A Blog about Motherhood in Alaska where you can download a free ebook.

For a little spiritual uplifter, read the fabulous blog I read this morning at The Creative Mama. She speaks of having kindred-spirit friendships in today's blog. What an eye opener!

I hope everyone is having a great start to the week!
