I have not done very well over the last few weeks. The good news is, I didn’t gain weight! Still, I’m committed to keep recording my diet and exercise! It is a part of my life now. I’ve got it down to the point where it really is simple to record everything! The smart phone app has a scanner to scan bar codes on foods, which is super easy. I have another app called “MapMyRun” that keeps track of my fitness when I go outside.
I know it’s not for everyone, but for me, I have no excuse but to keep it up. Knowing what I know about health, I would be a fool to do anything less than manage a healthy diet and fitness routine. It’s not easy, but I am going to be accountable to this stewardship over my body and I hope to be faithful in that responsibility.
So, despite my weakness over the last few weeks, I must press on! If I am diligent over the next ten weeks, I will reach my goal weight! Just 10 weeks! That is doable! I will finally know what it feels like to be within a healthy BMI. Crazy!

I’m working on a new chore chart for myself. I adapt it around my routines, but this is how I try to maintain a clean home. Nothing should take more than fifteen minutes. If it takes longer than that, it’s no longer maintenance. What do you do to maintain?
Start a load of laundry
Quick wipe master bathroom after showers
Wash morning dishes after lunch
Pick up toys before naps
Fold laundry (during naps)
Wash afternoon dishes after dinner
Quick wipe kids’ bathroom (during baths)
Pick up toys before bed
Prepare tomorrow’s meals
Organize anything else that has been neglected

Here is my 15 minute workout. I got the first seven exercises from a fitness site and decided to include the rest to get a more rounded workout. I do each exercise for 50 seconds and then rest 10 seconds in between. I do this right at home, and doesn’t really require weights. Yes, the last one is a shoulder press, but you can use cans or something like that. I use this online stop watch: http://www.beach-fitness.com/tabata/Tabata%20Clock%20v3.15%20%28beach-fitness.com%29.swf. Enjoy!
If you cannot see the images above, the exercises I use are the following (50 seconds each, 10 seconds rest):
Jump from squat
Side plank (each side)
Shoulder press w/dumbells
