So i’m really struggling with my new year’s resolution. I veered off track with my resolution last year but I have to say i think I was successful. I am much happier than I was this time last year. My mental health is better. The OCD got in the way of the resolution but in way this was for the best as I’m freer than ever with the OCD and am able to do things I never could have done a year ago.
I want to continue on being happier. I also want to continue decluttering. I’ve thought about promising to get rid of 1 item per day as a fellow blogger has done. I’ve also thought about committing to one healthy smoothie a day or trying to be healthier and lose some weight. I’ve also considered retrying the Better than Chocolate assignments. I just don’t really know. I could also try focusing on overcoming more with the OCD or how to be a successful adult with ADHD.
I would love to write more helpful posts on ADHD and OCD and write about what has helped me. Maybe I could give myself assignments tackling my barriers and write about this.
My biggest barrier right now is getting mentally healthy to lose the weight. I’m a real large girl who wants to be healthier but the OCD is blocking me right now. So much trauma and drama about weight in my life.
I would love to save money so reduce and reuse are huge for me. I need to stop buying things so maybe to keep things fresh i could focus on a new area each week.
- spending fasts
- sugar fasts
- declutter sessions
- OCD assignment
- ADHD assignment
- happiness assignment
Dabble in each so I don’t give up or get bored. don’t do it all at the same time but shake things up when I start to get discouraged in one area? Maybe I could go a week without spending any money (with the exception of gas). The next week go without sugar, next week declutter 30 items, next week address an OCD fear or compulsion, next week work on addressing my ADHD.
I don’t know – I need help.
Happier, healthier, more money saved, better mental health. most I’m already working on.
have some fun and create some art! that would be a great resolution! design something each week? could be interesting.
write a book? don’t know what I’d write. ideally it would be on parenting or mental health. – or could be fiction. drama and trauma?
write a book with my daughter? short mysteries with a spunky little detective? she would enjoy this. illustrated by her. written by us.
my husband and I would like to have another baby – i’ve told him that if we can free up enough space in our home, if i can get my ocd and adhd under enough control that i can go off my meds and if I could lose 100 pounds that we could have another child. sounds like craziness there. We are getting there with freeing up space. I could manage the ocd for quite awhile without meds, the adhd is harder. the weight loss is hard though. at 315 – pregnancy would be tough. I was overweight when I was pregnant with my daughter and that was tough. now i’m bigger. it hurt to walk last time – it would be worse this time.
