Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
It’s Officially Official! We have a Costco Executive Membership. I have always wanted to get a membership so that I could save money on produce, gas, spices, and things, but my other bills always took precedence. This was going to be the year that I got a membership and thankfully, my parents bought us a membership!!! “Thanks Mom and Dad!!! You won’t regret this.”
Last week I was in the midst of depression… I had the membership gift card in hand, but was so nervous about signing up. My friend Tara and I made plans to meet at Costco on Friday night and go grocery shopping together. Tara is the queen of eating clean and has lost over 100 lbs on her journey. She is a true inspiration and I feel blessed to be her friend! Making plans with Tara was just the little push I needed that pulled me out of my depression!!!
I decided to dress up and do my hair and makeup for the first time in ages and I put on a brave face. I went in early and got the membership!!!
It was like a chain reaction!!! Before I met Tara for grocery shopping I wanted to make it a point to clean out our fridge (a chore I had been putting off for months). Meeting Tara helped me to get out of the house and get moving. It felt so good to put healthy food in our fridge.
This week, eating clean was easier than it has ever been because I had a plan and the healthy food to get started. I am looking forward to my check in call this evening with Tara especially since we are going to schedule a time to grocery shop tomorrow. For the first time in a while, I have Friday night plans that do not involve my computer and Star Craft!!!
If you are ever feeling down, I highly recommend calling a close friend that you can trust. Also journaling, de-cluttering, and organizing is very therapeutic!!!
I am also a lover of to-do-lists so I will close with today’s to-do list and get to work!!!
Here is a list of tasks I would like to complete by Saturday evening:
- Clean and organize bedroom.
- Clean bathroom.
- Make a goodwill drop-off.
- Finish Digital Logic work once and for all!
- Complete Python Programming assignments.
- Practice Yoga at least once.
- Make baked tofu.
That’s my list and now I better head off to “adult.” What’s on your list today?!?! Comment below to share your plans!!!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
