9/4 review

Thursday, September 04, 2008

Noah had his first full day of school today so after I finished all of my in-town errands, I had FIVE uninterrupted hours to get things done at home. Unfortunately, my kids must have realized this too because they left their rooms and bathroom in a state like I've NEVER seen them. Ugh!! Unbelievable! Needless to say I spent virtually every minute of those five hours cleaning -- and I STILL didn't finish! :( Grrrrrrr. I keep trying to follow the Flylady mentality of not getting angry and just looking at it as blessing my family. It helped. But I'm not perfect. I still let them know how sad and disappointed I was to see that mess today. And they in turn informed me that a bug just flew in Marah's ear, Noah's backpack had just exploded papers, and Ana was really hot. I can see my nice calm demeanor had very little impact. In the past I would have given them an earful! And they would have promptly apologized and rushed to show me they could do better. . . One of these days I'll find a balance.

But back to my daily accountability:
1. Exercise - strength training today. I did an extra set of all exercises today to push myself a little harder (that was for you Marilee!)
2. Drink 8 glasses of water - actually hit 9 today (a record for me.)
3. Eat 5 fruits and veggies - DONE
4. Stay within calorie range - DONE

I'm on a roll now! Must say though, this daily blogging the results really does help. Fruits and veggies probably would not have happened today if I hadn't resolved to become accountable for that goal. Thanks ladies!

    Five hours of cleaning?!?! Would you like to visit my house? I don't think I've ever cleaned for five hours straight. I like to keep it to 5 minute increments :) Good job on meeting your goals!!

    A bug flew in her ear??? emoticon

    Way to go on getting so much done even when you had to do extra cleaning, that's awesome. It's so easy to say "Oh, I spent 3 hours cleaning so I'm counting that as my cardio today." Good for you. Weigh in on Saturday!~
