I think blog slacking is spreading. LOL

I to have been blog slacking lately. I just haven't been sitting at my computer as much lately. If I am online I'm on three sites. Both my message boards or my WW site putting in my Point Tracking for the day.

I've been exercising almost everyday and cleaning. It's hard to get your house in order when you've been slacking so much. I have many bad habits that I am trying to change. That was starting with my weight. Now it's my house. Granted we aren't total pigs around here. We do clean our kitchen, don't leave dirty dishes or food out and we do keep our house straightened. It's the deep cleaning that we don't seem to do. Vacuuming the living room is a must with dogs, but cleaning the baseboards... no. Keeping the toilet from getting that nasty ring we do, but cleaning the back of the toilet from dust and wiping down the counters is a rare thing only done when company comes. Again... in the kitchen we do wipe the counters daily. It seems like the only things we do around here is basic cleaning. Just what needs to be done.

SO I'M CHANGING THAT! From now on there will be cleaning of one room a day and straightening the rest. We have bad habits with paper clutter, not organizing it and putting it where it needs to be. Laundry gets cleaned but not necessarily put up. In Tallys room it gets put on her rocker instead of being put in her drawers or hung up. In our room the stuff gets put in drawers but hanging gets put on the cedar chest at the end of the bed. Why is it so hard to for us to hang up some clothes? Who knows, but it has to stop. So I joined FlyLady for her reminders. I'll update in a week and we'll see how we are doing.

So onto my weight... I think one of my last post I was at 4 lbs total weight loss. Well now I am at 7 lbs. That makes a 3 lbs loss last week and it also puts me in a lower weight class and put me down 2 pts a day. Which is fine by me! So I am only 3 lbs away from my first goal of 10 lbs and that means I will be calling Joyce for my pedicure soon. DH better have the money ready for me. LOL I've been trying to stay on track this week with points since my Aunt and Uncle are coming in tomorrow. We are going out to eat at Camerelli's which as I've said before is one of my favorite places. YUMMY I will definetly be putting half of my dinner in a to-go box that night and restricting myself to one peice of bread. I deserve at least that since I won't be getting my usual dessert. On Friday we are going to the State Fair! I can't wait... I love the fair, especially the turkeys legs. I look forward to them every year. This year isnt going to be any different so I will be having one. So needless to say I will be into my flex points by the end of the week and I would not be surprised if I didn't lose as much this week. We won't know until Saturday night though.

I bought a scrapbook magazine last night. Gave me a couple of ideas and I finished 3 pages last night. I also did some a couple of days ago. So I'm going to share a couple of them. I will try to post again this weekend sometime.


  1. I know what you mean...I've been working on my house too!

    Your pages are GREAT as always!!

    Congrats with your weight loss :)

  2. I am so with you on the cleaning. I do the basics everyday (mostly kitchen) and family room (toys, toys, toys). :-) No dogs, but does a messy 3 year old count? I had set the same goal as you...clean one room per day. Hasn't happened yet but am working on it.

    I love your scrapbooking pages! Do you do traditional scrapbooking or digital? I want to get into it (they just opened a store nearby) but I would just be a slacker with that, too.

    Congrats on the weight loss.
