letting go...

I am working on my intention
(I just think most of us break resolutions so I like this terminology better)
for the new year to be a happier, healthier me. Thus in the spirit of that I have been working on decreasing the clutter in my house. I am amazed at the sheer number of books I own. I always knew it was a lot, but oh my. Currently I have 4 bags sitting by my door, 1 is going to a friend for her reading pleasure, 2 more are for the yard sale and the last is being taken to the local hospital as a donation. I love the feeling of letting go of this stuff, yet knowing that someone else will find joy from it.
Another thing I am doing is trying to change some habits I have that are not as good as they could be. I feel like I spend too much time playing on my computer when I could be exercising or spending time with those in my life who matter to me. In the spirit of that I deleted my twitter account. I basically use it to complain about stuff and part of my intention is to focus on the positive so why have it. As you might have noticed I haven't been blogging quite as much these days, but want to still have an outlet for my crazy thoughts so I will be popping on every once in a while still.
This week I am going to attempt a mini cleanse to get back into a healthier diet.
To be honest the foods I will be eating is how we should all eat every day.
It is fruits, veggies, lean proteins and no processed foods.The bottom line is if it comes from a package you shouldn't eat it. The hardest part will be the sweet stuff, I am only allowed 1 ounce of dark chocolate per day.
We shall see how the week goes.

1/2 update

my attempt to clean out my house of some it's clutter and pass along my items to charity is slowly going. My friend will be having a yard sale in a month or so to benefit the American Cancer Society and thus far I have given her a wall shelf and 12 bags of assorted household items. I went through all of my books
(anyone who knows me realizes just how big of a deal that was)
and passed along in some manner my duplicate copies or books that have sat for much too long!
Next step is under the bed and my DVD collection, wish me luck
