Update: Sorry didn't have internet most of yesterday and half of today...so I'm late, but I just wanted to update my list and check in for the end of the challenge. I'm also off, since I had to plan for some friends that visited yesterday and today.


1. make a general (flexible) daily schedule. NOT done.

2. pick up and put away all clean baby clothes. DONE.

3. store away (baby) clothes that are now too small. DONE. (at least the ones I was talking about...there's still a few in the closet that are loose.)

4. mow the entire yard. NOT (fully) done. (Did half on Tuesday.)

5. Finish carpeting the basement floor (one corner to go). (almost there) NOT (fully) done. (I got the corner, except for the very corner and I'm not sure I'm going to do that, since there's a water valve in a small hole and a pipe there. Also have one tile left that I'm going to have to cut a hole out of so it will go around the toilet drainpipe.

6. Go swimming with our little one. NOT done...but still want to do, maybe even several times...(Didn't get to this one, since we had a lot to do at home and didn't get it done earlier in the day.)



Took a while to get the list, didn't get crunches done...it was just an off schedule week (I know it's hard to be off schedule if I haven't even written one.)

I feel great. I wound up doing 200 tonight. At then end of every 10, I would say "Ok, 10 more..." and got to 200. It was tough but it's a "good burn" that I get. I love to work out-just don't do it too often. I hope everyone else is kicking butt! emoticon

3) Finish filling out their baby books. I feel so awful that half of them are blank!

4) Clean my car. Its a disaster

5) Find a book and read for 30 minutes before bed

6) Create an arts and crafts space in the house for the kids to do their art projects.

My To Do List:

1. Read 1 book this month

2. Clean off the table in my formal dining room. It's a catch all for junk we never use. -DONE 7/16

3. Wash all the throw blankets laying around the house. My daughter takes them outside to have picnics and they probably need a good wash. -DONE 7/17

4. Fertilize my garden and all my flowers - DONE 7/18

5. Paint my toenails. It may sound corny but I never take any "me time" to do stuff like that for myself. -DONE 7/15

Edited to add a 6th item. According to the list do we need 6 things on our to do list? If this is correct here's my #6.

6. Weed the area around my tomato plants. -DONE 7/18

Let's crunch to victory people! Remember you can do crunches, jackknives on the WiiFit, bicycle crunches, or crunches with your ab roller. You can even mix it up and do a little of each.

Don't forget you can log your crunches under Team Goals. Here are the instructions for that for those who are new to Team Goals:

From the main Wii Exercise Team page, scroll down to Team Goals.

Click "Track Goal" that appears across from the "Crunch Wars! ..."

This will take you to your Other Goals page.

Click on plus sign under the day of the week you did your crunches.

In the "How Much" box type the number of crunches you did that day.

Click "Save"
