I usually post something fitness-related on Wednesday. The reason being is because Wednesday and Workout both start with “W” and that’s just how scientific and technical I am. However, I’m not doing anything new and exciting at the gym right now. I have added last week’s workout into my weekly rotation because judging from the 3 days of soreness of my legs and behind, it’s gotta be doing something good! There I go, getting all technical again.
My goal is to work out four days a week right now, but truth be told, I’m averaging more like three. Working out four days would be better than three. However, three is better than none at all, which is probably what I would do if I didn’t try for four.
Last year, I signed up on the Read-Through-the-Bible-in-a-Year board at our church. Sadly, I did not finish. This year, I signed up again, but decided to continue where I left off last year.
Today I finished the Old Testament!
Tomorrow, I will begin the New Testament which goes a lot quicker in my experience. So though I signed up to read through the Bible in 2013, I will be finishing it in 2014.
Could I have done better? Absolutely!
Do I wish I hadn’t signed up? Absolutely not!
I had a goal. I did not meet it. However, if I hadn’t had that goal at all, I wouldn’t have even tried. And accomplishing something is far better than accomplishing nothing.
And since we’re talking about accomplishments, today I cleaned out 3 dresser drawers!
This was an unintentional by-product of getting a new vacuum. I had a 20% off coupon for Bed, Bath, and Beyond and decided to use it to purchase the Roomba. Since we got our new puppy last year, I have been Swiffering and vacuuming every day. EVERY DAY!!!
I have now had the Roomba 5 days and can I just say…
Sunday, I even ran it twice. Surprisingly, Waffles leaves it alone except for the occasional warning bark. When I have the Roomba vacuuming along with the dishwasher, washer and dryer running at the same time…well, I can safely say we have reached the age of the Jetsons! It was worth every penny! And with that coupon I saved $120. I would recommend it to anyone who has pets.
What does that have to do with my drawers?
Well, in order to Roomba-proof the house, you have to pick up any loose articles on the floor that could potentially get sucked up.
Which meant I had to pick up the Victoria’s Secret bag that has been sitting in the corner of my bedroom since the semi-annual sale. Please don’t even count how many weeks ago that was. When I went to put all the new undergarments in the undergarment drawers, I found it full. So I’ve been wearing, washing, and replacing them…in the bag. And that is the ugly truth!
My name is Andrea and I have a procrastination problem.
However, the motivation of not having to vacuum inspired me to make room. Cleaning one drawer led to cleaning another and before you knew it, I had 3 bags of lingerie ready for the trash and 3 organized drawers filled with bras that have not exceeded their shelf life. It’s a beautiful thing.
So between finishing the O.T. and having clean drawers of drawers (haha – get it?) I feel I can take the rest of the day off and let the Roomba do the work.
