August Snow, or Picking up Packing Popcorn

Monday, August 20, 2012

Have I mentioned I found Fly Lady in an effort to fullfill the week I task for the Health Eating Challenge? I had no idea how to even start to organize my kitchen. Here is my clean, organized kitchen

And my pantry/cupboards.

Well, thanks to the "Shine your Sink" command from the Fly Lady, I have begun to purge other areas of my home. Today was trash pick up, so I put in extra time trying to get as much as I could out to curbside before scheduled pick up time.

Last Thursday, I felt ten pounds lighter after trash pick up. I was really flying. So I decided to document the process today. If it was anything like last week, I was ready to float up into the air.

Here is my trash pile.

Here is my trash flying into the truck.

Looks like a snowstorm in August. The sanitation engineer was not pleased. I wasn't so happy either as I started to pick up packing popcorn that blew all the way to the end of the block on both sides of the street. I wonder if there is a place in the fitness tracker to enter, Picking up Packing Popcorn at Midday in the Hot, August Sun in Florida, 30 minutes?


I lost 2 pounds sweating, and yes, I did put it back on drinking the replacement water!!

    Love to see how much pride and joy you're getting out of FlyLady's program. I will get back to that someday, beyond just polishing my sink.

    Nobody likes an August snow storm! Especially when they have to clean up after it. Great pictures and the kitchen looks amazing. I bet it feels really good to get it organized. Keep it up.
