Things I'm Not-So-Great At.

It's about an hour away from Friday right now but I wanted to do a confession-type of post anyway because I do what I like.  Booyah.

Sticking to a set schedule.  (Obvs.)  Hey, sometimes shit happens and it messes up your whole routine.  You just gotta go with it.  And, sometimes you're on schedule but you feel like binge-watching the entire second season of New Girl.  Or taking that extra five minutes of sleep in the morning that ends up turning into 30.  That's cool too.

Remembering certain things.  Ask me what I had for dinner last night and I wouldn't even be able to tell you.  And unless your name is tattooed on your head I probably won't remember you if I don't see or talk to you on a daily basis.  However, if you ask me what I wore on the first day of school in 2nd grade I can tell you that I wore a Princess Jasmine outfit that consisted of a teal and pink t-shirt with a huge graphic of her face on it and matching teal shorts that had the Disney logo on the bottom left corner.

Keeping things tidy.  I'm messy.  I've always had so much stuff and have always had a messy room because of my hoarding issues.  Usually my mess consists of clothes, shoes, accessories and trash associated with such things (tags, shopping bags, receipts, etc.).  As of right now I have one closet, one garment rack, a shelf, a 6-drawer dresser, a shoe closet, and four baskets full of clothes, shoes and accessories.  I plan to downsize soon but, you know, that means scheduling time to do it.

Running.  I've never been good at it, except for maybe when I was 10 and I was faster than my younger brothers and racing other kids on the playground was cool.  Gonna take Nadine's advice and start the C25K program to hopefully lose some pounds and build endurance.

Budgeting.  I'm a spender.  It's not my fault, though.  I was born and raised this way.  I'm the first born, first daughter, and first granddaughter (on my father's side) so I've always been spoiled.  Christian Dior baby clothes, Coach shoes for everyday wear in high school, random shopping sprees "just because".  Life was easy for me back then.  Fast forward to adult life where I actually have to do something to get something, pay bills on time, buy food/clothes/essentials for my kids - adult life is hard as fuck.  Trying to start some kind of budget plan that I can actually stick to thanks to tips from Steph and Alyssa, but they have more willpower than I do when it comes to temptation.

Your turn!  What are some things you're not-so-great at?


  1. hahaha my memory is the same! i can remember things i wore years ago but not yesterday. so weird. i loved the C25k, definitely helped me become a runner. I actually think I need to start it again, lol. And budgeting, I used to be so bad at it till Alyssa helped me!

  2. First of all, love all the New Girl gifs!! My husband finally got on board with that show and we have been binging! I hate thinking about budgets. Gross. And sometimes my memory is awesome...sometimes it is so not. I blame age. I hope that you have success with C25k!!!!!! If I can do it, anyone can do it! I could barely run a minute and I was amazed with what I could do when I was done!

  3. I'm in love with the new design of the blog!

  4. Im horrible at running. Like so bad. I always want to stop about 30 seconds in. And Im a spender too, dont worry. I try but I always fail at budgeting!

  5. Omg, I hate set schedules.... and yet I think I like them because it's one less thing I have to worry about/remember to take care of. Ugh. I'm a bundle of oxymorons.

  6. We all have strengths and weaknesses. I'm glad my husband makes up for my weaknesses (being lenient with our kids when I'm so strict) and I make up for his (making up activities to do with our 5 yo). I'm not so good at sticking with exercise "plans" or having patience when have to be somewhere like 5 minutes ago.

  7. This blog is so nice to me. I will continue to come here again and again. Visit my link as well.
