I just completed the first week of the BLC22 Challenge. I completed all my goals I set for the wek and completed all the challenges.
BUT I happened to look at my kitchen floor this morning.... oh my.
I need to make some adjustments and set goals for those adjustments. So right now I'm just basically talking out loud. I will be make a spreadsheet (inspired by me team) with my new lifestyle/routine goals and post weekly to keep myself accountable. Plus love being able to check things off a list!
On the plus side my 14 yr old DS is not going to be home to do some chores.... but have any of you had your 14 yrs DS responsible for the cleaning? He is oddly particular about some things, but couldn't care less about others. For example. He keeps is toilet spotless. But his bathroom sink, ick!!!
Typically I'm a night owl. I clean, cook dinner,workout, study (I'm taking classes), garden - - all in the evenings, often up until 12 or 1am and then rising at 6 for work. That is just how my clock works. It also makes it difficult to connect the DH who is typically in bed by 10.
I would like to start doing a light workout in the morning, mile or two on the treadmill. (I'm worried I'll be tired for work. Right now my workouts knock me out cold for the night).
I don't think I can just switch to morning workouts all together.
5A - Walk/run
6A - getting ready for work
12pm - lunch time walk (weather permitting, which it hasn't much lately)
5-6 Home (depending on errands)
--7 Gardening/Cleaning/Dinner - pack lunch for next day
7 - Dinner on the table by 7-7:30, right now we eat around 8 (which pushes my workouts back because I like the food to digest a little first)
8 - TV/PC/Family time. Sparks check in :)
9 - Workout (Alt Lifting & Cardio) -- prepared list for DS (poor kid).
I know, I know-- best laid plans.
Wednesday is my rest day, workout wise - so I can hopefully catch up with some house work and get to bed at a reasonable time tonight.
Maybe I should just quiet my job and have my DH take care of me. Nah, that's not quite my style.
Also need lunch time replacement walk suggestions. The mall is right across the road. I guess I could drive there and walk. Our building is only 4 stories, but I don't think I could do stairs for 30 minutes?!?
Thoughts and suggestions are welcome
**Also note, my DS is responsible for all the mowing of 2 farm houses, which is a day & half to mow and another day of weed eating, so he does a lot to do.
