101 in 1001

Recently, I was inspired by Kate's post ( A Sprinkle of Kate ), 101 things to accomplish in 1001 days. I think it's such a clever way to set goals with a realistic time frame to accomplish them.

I am so prone to procrastination, it's unreal. It takes me nearly two weeks to complete housework because I keep putting it off due to finding more "important" or interesting things to do.  I am always so full of excuses as to why I can't or won't do things. Mister Right experiences it on a fairly regular basis when he tries to get me to go to the gym, saying that I have nothing to lose and it's good because it lowers stress and anxiety.

I am always making excuses or finding reasons against things that I don't wanna do, to be honest, my reasons are slightly terrible.

Now is just as good as any time to stop making excuses and get my butt into gear.
