Ok, so I have just sat here for an hour planning out my new bedtime routine to hopefully begin making my life easier. I have taken my tips from FlyLady. I really love her site and thank cinnamon_girl_8 for suggesting it to me. So here is my bedtime routine as I hope to have it ingrained in the next few months. Babysteps!
1. Clean up the house before bed. (20 min at the most)
2. Think about tomorrow.
a. Check calendar.
b. Start a “To Do” list for tomorrow.
c. Think to myself: “What can I do tonight that would make my morning easier?”
d. Gather things I need tomorrow in one place.
e. Plan tomorrow’s dinner and move meat to the fridge if it needs to thaw.
f. Lay out clothes for tomorrow. Iron them if needed, repair buttons, etc…
3. Focus on ME before bed.
a. Get ready for bed
b. Bath time, brush teeth, wash face.
c. Night collar on.
Reflect on today:
b. Read and relax.
c. Go to bed smiling! (11:30pm)
Ok so barring any major adjustments, I should be able to handle this in a few short months and be a-okay with it. It should make my mornings so much easier.
Master is really encouraging with my new plans to make my life, and ultimately his so much easier. I know he likes to see that I want to change my life for him, and babysteps is the way to go. I really like to hear him tell me “Good job” when I’ve just finished my exercises. I have got to get to 8 glasses of water a day. That’s my next diet goal.
I’m hoping that Master and I can play this weekend sometime. I really need the destressing effect that I get with pain play. It certainly is therapy. MMMM, flogger therapy. I don’t know what is with me lately but I’m kinda hoping I can handle a lot of pain, to maybe get some marks to wear proudly. Right now it’s more like, “oh, where did that bruise come from? I must have bumped something.” I want to know where they come from, gosh darn it! Anyone have any simple suggestions for an activity that will probably get me some marks?
I have a lot of reading to do this weekend for all of my classes. I hope I can get it done in a decent amount of time so that I can still clean the house good, and make a flogger. Gotta build up that stock if I want to sell them.
Tomorrow I weigh in and get measurements done for my weekly diet check. I hope I have lost a lb. or two. Maybe just an inch. I want anything to show that my new affirmation is working. I love that I have submissives everywhere online rooting (is that the right spelling?) for me and keeping my motivation up.
