Total Mom Makeover.
"I walked into my bedroom to dump the laundry on top of the mountain of clean clothes that needed to be folded and put away, and saw clutter all over the floor, cups stacked on furniture, and tissues wadded up and thrown beside the bed. That's when it hit me. This was not the Life I had anticipated...But the truth was that every aspect of my life, including my homemaking and mothering, was scattered and disorganized" (p.3).
"If she (mom) is running on empty, then she has nothing to give. Every person who depends on here and every obligation that she carries will suffer as well" (p.7).
Self-Improvement project #768.
Again I will reinstate that I could be addicted to crack. So there. Again.
Before I begin, I have a confession.
I bought this book...Last year.
Was super excited to read about how one mom caught a glimpse of herself in a mirror (wearing sweat pants and a crunchie might I add) and completely broke down.
This was not how she envisioned her Life to be.
So she created a 6 week program, wrote a book, another one and now even has a successful web site where you can learn to be "the best mom you can be!".
Somehow I lost the motivation to continue (Week One, Day 2...So much for determination) but found it again last week in my book basket (Determination is funny like that...It comes back at unexpected times) and have decided this is the perfect time to give it another shot.
This time I will blog about it.
For 6 weeks.
The next 6 weeks will include:
Week 1) Starter MOM
Week 2) Basic Mom
Week 3) Secure Mom
Week 4) Nurtured Mom
Week 5) Confident Mom
Week 6) Total Mom
What do I need to follow this?
A journal (My Blog), a specific time every day (6 am before the twins are up)and excitement(On the search). I admit the last one does not excite me...I am still so tired of being so tired.
Which is why I am doing this.
