Distribution of labour

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I think I need to start doing some chores during the week, because the last two weekends it feels like that's all I've been doing. It's good that I feel like I've had a productive day, but then it gets very awkward at work on a Monday when everyone asks what I got up to over the weekend.
"Er sweeping, mopping, cleaning the bathroom, baking..." just add in 'knitting' and I'd sound exactly like a 70-year-old. (Sorry if that offends any 70-year-olds)

I don't know, I'm just a bit cross with myself. I was too lazy to go running yesterday so I got up early to do it today instead. But then I was still lazy. I got to 25 minutes, went 'waa it's hard' and stopped. Yes, it did feel a lot harder than usual but still I could have pushed myself just for 5 wee minutes.

Sigh. Anyway, I do have some good news. After two weeks of my weight being up 3lbs (curse you, womanhood!!) it has now dropped down to my lowest ever weight: 154. That means I'm only one stone away from my goal weight! AND only 9 lbs away from a healthy BMI!

Got to keep pushing (unlike today) because I am determined to make it!

    Alright! You're almost there! Sometimes we need to keep ourselves in check, just so we don't get complacent and get back into our old sedentary lifestyles.... I get where you're coming from..... but you DID do 25 minutes... that's more than 10 minutes... take it and move on... challenge yourself next time. emoticon Proud of you!

    Don't be so hard on yourself! Running 25 minutes may not have been your best but neither does it qualify as "lazy" in my opinion. And you are losing weight!! emoticon on your progress!

My weekends aren't really interesting either, when I have lots of housework or studying. But it's not what you do; it's whether you like it or not ;)

    Me too! Today was my day to "relax" and I spent it cleaning toilets. Enjoy the rest of your weekend while you can!

    I'm glad you're reaching your weight loss goals! Those are important! I hope you figure out the chore thing. I don't think you sound like a 70yo if that makes you feel better! My roommates and I previously had pretty busy lives, so we only dedicated one day to chores (usually a Sat or Sun) and each person took one of the common rooms: living room, dining room, and kitchen. We had a checklist of what needed to be done in each room and just went down the list. And we rotated weekly, so that each person wasn't stuck in the same room all the time. Our bedrooms were on our own time. I shared a bathroom and we switched off every other week who cleaned it (usually on our designated cleaning day). You could do this, but assign a weekday for a certain room. Monday is living room, Wednesday is dining room, Friday is kitchen... Just a thought!

    emoticon Keep up the positive attitude! The point is you got up and ran today! It doesn't matter that you only did 25 minutes! You did what you could and you didn't make excuses to not do it! You believe in yourself and that is what matters! We are all here with the same desires on this journey together! If you need anything, I love to listen! God will hear you too if you just believe in him! God has always been my rock and he has done some amazing things in my life! I could tell you about some of them sometime? Have a blessed day! emoticon emoticon emoticon
