5 wishes...inspired by Living in Yellow :)

yup, I've got another Blog crush...Erin from Living in Yellow is such a ball of energy!  I honestly don't remember how I stumbled upon her blog...but I have it bookmarked/in my google reader/something like that :)  and she makes me giggle and feel a lot more normal...I also enjoy wine, spend way too much time on the Internet, and if I had room in my house, I'd have clothes in 4 closets too ;)

so anyway, tonight she posted a blog about 5 wishes she has...and it inspired me to make my own list :)  so here goes nothing!

1.  I wish I could say no.

I am notorious for piling WAY too much on my plate...because I like to be able to help everyone, do everything they need...but then I typically neglect the things I need to do.  I am a natural born procrastinator (or as I commonly like to say..."I work well under pressure" haha...) but the list of to-do's usually outweighs the actual time I have by at least 10 to 1.  Need to be okay with not pleasing all the people, all the time.

2.  I wish I was better at portion control

I have a love-hate relationship with food...I LOVE to eat.  Love, love, love it.  I have to admit, I've gotten much better in the last few months, but I still have a ways to go.  I am not the 18 year old who played sports 12 months a year that I used to I'm still (12 years later) figuring out how to handle that transition. is just too good...

3.  I wish I watched less TV

Yup, ever since I got my TiVo back in 2001, I have been watching WAYYY too much TV.  the convenience of taping and watching whenever I wanted just lead to an increase of TV consumption...and now I love so many shows...comedies, dramas, and a select few reality shows...and now that I've discovered the "Watch Instantly" feature on Netflix...the TV is pretty much always on...

of course if I'm cleaning, or just working on my computer, I like having the noise in the background of a show I have seen...hello TBS re-runs :)...

4.  I wish I had more time to work on my business

to make plan out new photograph and list on re-list sold items...and to network, make connections online and in work on wholesaling...

whew.  I'm tired just thinking about it!

5.  I wish I could stick to working out to lose these last few pesky pounds!

It's been 6 years since I had my emergency appendectomy...I officially can no longer use that as an excuse- which I did for WAY too long- it seems like every time I got into a good routine, I'd pull or strain something...or get sick, and I'd be back at square one.

now I'm working with an awesome trainer to work on my posture issues...and it has made a big difference already!  I'm also working on a food cleanse- tomorrow is day 6 of 10...and I lost 6 lbs this week!  I know it's probably mostly water weight...but it is motivation to keep eating healthy and get my butt in the gym!

thanks Erin for the inspiration!!
