Works for Me Wednesday

This site has helped me so much. I admit, I am not the most consistent follower, nor do I follow all the rules exactly as the Flylady wishes, but I am more together now than I ever have been. It feels good! The thing I struggle the most with is getting up and getting dressed, first thing, every day. I am more the type of person who likes to get my work done, or do my lounging around in my comfy clothes. Then, when I have someplace to go, I will start the process of "getting ready." And people, believe me when I say this is a process. I am living out here in suburbia where every other mom seems to have a great body, cute clothes, perfect hair, tons of shoes, and always look effortlessly put together. And they just zip around in their SUV's all day looking great with their big Paris Hilton inspired sunglasses and humongous purses. And me? Well, I am not the nastiest thing on the block...but I won't be in People magazine anytime soon. The flylady's website has helped me gain control of daily routines, cooking for my family, and taught me that I need to love myself. And I've found that if I do these simple routines, things really do fall into place. Check it out for yourself, it has worked for me, and maybe getting some simple routines in place would help you too if anyone out there is even a tiny bit as overwhelmed as I was.

I use a lot of FlyLady inspired tips as well, mainly a control journal. I also really enjoy the radio program.

I've been a Flybaby for a couple of years, now, too... and I love it! I'm like you, don't follow everything exactly, but Flylady always says to customize the routines so they work for you. :)

I had to laugh at your description of the other moms! That sounds like our neighborhood-- except me of course.

I too love FlyLady. It has been a wonderful blessing in our home.
