Smart Habit Saturday

Lara the Lazy Organizer hosts Smart Habit Saturdays. I've been sidelined for the past few weeks and my habits have taken a hit. I had my gall bladder removed. Let's just say that it wasn't on my list of things to do and it has caused a little upheaval in my life.

I've been off work for about 2 weeks and am ready for my body to be ready to get back into the swing of life.

Here's the habits I had been working on...

Habit 4 - Daily, early morning devotion time. I want to be out of bed at 5:45 am every morning for 45 minutes with my Lord for reading of the Word, prayer and book study. - On hold this week.
Habit 3 - Lights out by 11 pm nightly.
Habit 2 - Drink 3 qts of water daily. Back to baby stepping - goal is 1 1/2 qts this week.
Habit 1 - Wash my face every night. Was almost a habit - it's slipped a bit, but I'm getting it back.

Right now, I don't know when I'll be back to work, but I can start getting back into some of the habits that work for me. I haven't needed my "brain book" so that's one of the first things I'm going to get going.

Check out the great habits everyone else is working on - Smart Habit Saturday.


  1. I am so sorry you had to have your gall bladder removed. I am sure that has not been an easy thing to deal with. I hope you get back on your feet soon. Good luck with your habits and with your health!

  2. Stinkin' gallbladder - they can be real troublemakers. Love the baby stepping.

    Best of luck with your habits and recovery.

  3. Good luck with getting back to your goals & habits. I too started at the beginning of the year (posted once) and like took over!

  4. Ouch! Best of luck with the recovery - I hope you feel much better soon and are able to ease back into your habits.

  5. Good luck with your recovery.......I had a migraine for three days and feel like my life skidded out of control..I can't imagine what it must be like to be out for two weeks especially with something unexpected! Good luck with getting back on track with your habits

  6. Darn that gallbladder! I've had mine out and I was miserable. I hope you're starting to feel a little better. It's a good idea to take baby steps to get back into these habits. You can do it!

  7. I'm glad you're feeling better! Funny how inconvenient things like to come up and ruin our schedules. It's times like that when you have to stick to your most basic habit, surviving!

    Thanks for the encouragement you left on my blog :) It always helps! Hope you're getting stronger and stronger (and more rested every day). I need to adopt some of your habits . . . maybe some time down the road - remember I'm baby steppin' it!
