Well, I skipped jazzercise today, but I did so to finally finish a work project I’ve been putting off, and I also walked my dog three miles earlier. Still a win, especially on the work front.

Anyone following me for a while will remember all my ups and downs and phases, attempts at Paleo, etc. In the past couple months I’ve erred to the side of eating anything, but in moderation. But that has included a lot of bread and sugar.

I’m coming to realize that if eating bread and sugar means that I am not making vegetables a priority, something has to change. I’m also realizing I can’t really responsibly enjoy those foods.

I’m going to use Easter as an excuse to package up whatever candy I have in my house and give it to my little cousins (horrible, I know, but I also know their parents allow them candy, so I’m not going to let myself feel too guilty).

And then otherwise just make a point to not buy any more crap from the store. Would I feed it to my own child without a twinge of guilt? No? Then I’d better not put it in my own body, either.

All my jewelry is organized! I am so excited to be able to see it all at once.

ugh, too much sugar today.

Sorry to talk about cleaning so much, but I spent 4 hours again cleaning this Friday morning. I cleaned the bathroom again, even though it “didn’t need it” and I was able to deep clean it better since the surface areas were still relatively clean and quick to do. This will be good to maintain. Then I deep cleaned the kitchen. I’ll just keep rotating rooms every Friday (last week it was my bedroom), and otherwise keeping the house picked up every day during the week. That is the only way to not feel completely overwhelmed by the housework. I’m just so sick of letting crap pile up and letting the dust accumulate, then if someone is coming over, I have to spend hours cleaning and sorting things. It will be better if it’s just always in a state of “relatively clean.” I also changed my sheets again, even though it’s only been a week and I usually would have let it go longer, but there were muddy footprints on them (ugh) and it’s really nice to have clean sheets on Friday night when you can sleep in the next day.

Unfortunately I’m so tired I don’t feel like walking my dog or going to jazzercise, but I will do both after I sneak some work in and sit for a while.

There’s me finishing a 5k race this morning. I just did it at an easy, slow jog which felt awesome. I thought I looked pretty good in this photo, except it looks like I have a baby bump.

OMG. I am trying to get in the habit of making my bed every day, and every day, without fail, my dog unmakes it. 

Woohoo in my quest to become a mature adult, I have cleaned the bathroom and changed the sheets before it was absolutely necessary!

I’ve been going through a lot of the crap in our home to try to get rid of / donate some stuff and make room for a theoretical baby. I found so much cool jewelry that I never wear anymore. Nothing expensive, just necklaces and earrings I had forgotten about. I should try to make it a goal to wear something different each time I am not wearing workout clothes (which is most of the time, sadly/awesomely).
