How was your weekend?
With birthday parties, art openings and college football games, I didn't get much accomplished on the Cure front. So I've had to re-evaluate, and I encourage you to do the same if you're feeling overwhelmed. Here are some good questions to ask yourself: 1. Are my goals practical?
If you think you've bitten off more than you can chew, simply scale back and move on. 2. Are you still having trouble letting go?
One of the easiest ways to start seeing a difference is to edit your belongings.
Remember: Everyone else is working hard and having struggles, too. Share your successes and challenges. I know you've all got a lot on your plates, but please continue to upload photos into our Flickr group
so we can see the changes being made.

This Week's Assignment: In the Deep Treatment, it's all about the living room. For some of you this may be a big deal (e.g., purchasing and/or rearranging furniture). For others it may not be as much trouble (e.g., tidying up the coffee table, flipping the couch cushions). And there's also another goal: Cooking at home three times this week. I highly recommend heading over to The Kitchen for recipes and inspiration.
The One Room Workout focuses on shopping, including Carb and Protein furniture. Keep track of your budget with our handy worksheets.
We're just about at the halfway point. And, in the words of Rob Schneider in almost every Adam Sandler movie: "You can dooooo it!"
