Trying to get started.

I'm trying to just start with the house so I don't get overwhelmed and give up again. I'm also trying to concentrate on one room at a time and getting everything picked up and trash thrown out before I even concentrate on the actual cleaning. The living room is starting to look decent although it still smells like cat. My big accomplishment for the day was getting some dishes washed and filling 2 big bags with trash. That's a good day. Now how do I get motivated to have more of these good days and less of the bad ones? How do I stay motivated to keep up with this? That's it for a start because I have more dishes to do but will check in again later.
