HCB's Journal, 12 August 2012

We planned to attend a Twins baseball game today but decided the weather wasn't the best, and we have a ton of household tasks to accomplish within the next ten days (clean out fridge, clean out oven, scrub bathroom tiles, replace showerhead, clean garage, clean all floors, etc.).

ADDENDUM: Wheeee...the fridge is shining inside and out, and the oven was "Easy Off'd" and scrubbed on the outside - all clean and shiny! Husband scrubbed the bathtub and tiles, and changed the showerhead...but then pooped out. We still have next week to finish up the deep cleaning!

I am extending my net carbs a little today, so hope I am not tired tomorrow as a result.

Today I am grateful for:

- My FS Buddies who support and encourage me to continue
- "Butt-kicking" myself to a smaller size today using kickboxing DVD
- The motivation and energy to do my household deep cleaning
- My DH, and my Bengal cat companions
- My work - which has meaning and worth to other human beings
- My connection to the Mother Earth and all its splendor
- My physical health

Too bad about missing out on the game but the feeling of accomplishment after a good house cleaning will help make up for it. I love a clean house :)

@ lilypad1647 - yes, the MN Twins at Target Field - have a partial season ticket. @evelyn64 - I also LOVE a clean home but I am notoriously "lazy" about it ...well, not lazy eaxacty but just cannot keep up. My spouse cleans but not throughly - so, every three moths or so I have to really clean things like fridge, oven, bathroom floor, etc. Generallt teh motivation is upcoming visitors! LOL

that should read "thoroughly" and "months" not moths...although we likely have those, too!

awesome...I grew up in mn, but I've only been to games at the metrodome....next time I visit family I'd love to go to a game at Target Field :)

I love baseball! But you will feel accomplished getting the rest of those chores out of the way. It never ends, does it?

Hope you accomplish all you set out to do today.

I hear you about cleaning HCB. I sometimes invite people over to give myself some added motivation to do some serious cleaning. Sad but true!

I'm just now getting back to trying to tackle my house. It's quite disgusting. Though I'm not a hoarder, I am a clutterer and I have pets. This past spring and summer, it's been impossible to keep up with everything. I've only done the necessary clean up for the pets and the things that can make you ill (dishes, toilets, etc.) The rest is full of dust, small, tipsy stacks and recluse . . . not a pretty picture. I love your thankfulness list. It looks a lot like mine. LOL! Hugs!

Go Twins! We have some buddies who played with the Twins organization. Which kick boxing DVD do you do? Is it Jillian Michaels? I have a fun Denise Austin kick boxing DVD I complete but the routine is only twelve (12) minutes long. So I do a couple of additional twelve minute routines that work upper & lower body too. Tag me back with a tip if you will. Thanks so much!

The 30 minute kickbox cardio DVD is some generic one I got at Target in a set of four DVDs - don't even know the woman's name!

Thanks! Ha! The lady who demonstrates the "Pilates" toning band moves is a relative unknown too but I love her anyway. I will look for another kickboxing DVD. Those are fun! Thanks again!

I'm glad you had a Twins game to look forward to! ( I am NOT a baseball fan). Sounds like you and the husband were busy. You sound very ambitious with the house! And you did all that and your DVD, too? That's fantastic! I had a nice Sunday, went to Red Lobster with some coworkers and saw some ladies that needed to be reminded that there IS a difference between shorts and panties. Heh!
