Eh, i used to bite my nails, too. I gave up and now I”ve had acrylics for a year or so now. Now they always look nice!

As far as being messy, i think it’s sort of a personality trait. Some people are organizational type people and some aren’t. For me, it’s something that’s come as I’ve gotten older, very slowly. I’m much more organized now than I was a couple years ago.

As far as clothes go, I bought a nice chair for the bedroom. I lay my clothes out on that the night before and I toss my pjs on that in the morning. Better than the floor.

biting my nails too!!! i dont know why, it just happens!!! my Fiance hates it when he sees me with my fingers in my mouth lol. I bought that nasty tasting nail polish so it will help me stop i think. I dont know where the nail biting comes from, but its annoying and i hate it. 

tweezing my eyebrows. i mean CONSTANTLY. I could sit there for 2 hours until my eyelids are getting sores on them and still tweeze. this is just happening latley though and i think it has something to do with stress/nerves.  I told my Fiance that if he ever catches me tweezing compulsivly to stop me. Meaning if i do it every day, 2 hours a day.  If its one hair thats REALLY bugging me i will tweeze it, but i need to stop LOOKING for things to tweeze. it got so bad one time i literally plucked every hair out of my nostrils.  Thats how i KNOW i have an issue.  But i totally know it has something to do with stress/nerves because i have only been doing it closer to the wedding date(which is next month).

i have so much trouble not biting my nails! i try to grow them out, but they’re really brittle and will break and peel…or when i get stressed or nervous, they go right into my mouth.

It was hard to NOT weighing myself everyday when I was very active. I have since stopped being very active and havent weighed myself until last night. I am a lot better than I thought. Now I am going to get back on the workout train again and I hope I can maintain the not weighing myself everyday routine.. it is def unhealthy!

I bite my nails like a crazy person. I hate that I do it but I always have, I am trying really hard to stop though. Another thing is I am trying to get less addicted to my laptop. I cant help it tho. I dnt watch tv or anything like that but I want to start being more active like being outside more often. I am also bad about organization. Its weird because thats all so recent. Like last 6 months, I am horrible. I feel so super lazy about everything. I need motivation by the gallons.

I’m messy too! I’ve found compromising with myself helps – I keep a laundry basket next to the closet where I can toss the sweater I only wore for a few hours and don’t need to wash yet, etc. I also LIVE for hooks on the backs of doors where I can hang stuff like sweatshirts, towels, bathrobe, etc. instead of putting them away like I should.

That way stuff is not on the floor, but I’m also not constantly folding or wrangling hangers. I don’t have the patience for that…

I completely understand where you are coming from!!

I’ll start to say that I consider “clean” to be that I can have any guest walk into my house at any time and not be embarrassed.

Things I have started to do:

1) Only do laundry when I am able to fold it and put it away… if you can contain the dirty laundry discretely (so yes I had to stop throwing it on the floor), why have a 2nd pile of clean clothes to go with it? You’ll just go from one pile to the other and back again.

2) Containers- I have little containers from the dollar store or anywhere that is cheap to keep things from pony tail holders and lotions to tea and spices.

3) The biggest thing- Cleaning! Who wants to spend hours on the weekend cleaning the house! Solution- wet and dry swiffer sweepers, clorox wipes. By taking 5 minutes every other day to wipe things down, they don’t get to the point where you have to super scrub/major vaccuum every week! The disposable products make it so quick! (and earth friendly people can be happy that a lot come “green” now!)

If you fight the urge to walk by it, toss it on the floor, or not wipe it down you too can have a clean house!

I’m at 2 months clean!!!
