From Order to Abs
Week one of March of Minis is done and I think it is my favorite challenge so far. I have been so productive! The house looks better! It’s Spring! Yesterday was a big day on the organizing front – I did my closet. It is so wonderful to go in there now. I removed 5 bags of clothes – one of them a garbage bag full. I haven’t gotten rid of a significant amount of clothes in years. It’s a wonder I didn’t find my hypercolor shirt in there. Man, I loved that shirt. Sigh.
Anyway, yes, closet is clean. I love it. So, that made 5 items done. After the closet we took a break for some outdoor activities and then late afternoon I cleaned and organized our coat closet. I don’t think I have cleaned in there since the day we moved in. It looks lovely. After that I did our bookshelves. They were really not that bad, but I had been wanting to do it for awhile. Odds and ends end up getting deposited on a shelf as we walk past. Some books I have read needed to move on to grace someone else with their presence. If you look closely you can see the Hunger Games trilogy. Who is excited for that upcoming movie? Me me! I was once Katniss for Halloween.
The total list of things I organized are (in order): The pantry, the fridge, 3 kitchen utensil drawers, towels, my closet, coat closet and the bookshelves. Seriously, this was my favorite challenge. I may have to expand it to a full month at some point. The one thing that we still really need to get to is the garage – a good reason to do this again. That space is very very messy.
Now on to abs! I was leaning towards doing 1400 situps for the week which would average me 200 a day. Plenty challenging I thought. But, my husband talked me into going for a cool 2000. (Hmm, I wonder if that is so he can escape to the basement to play more video games since I will be busy doing situps.)
The rules are….there are no rules. At least for me – you can do whatever you want. Just an average of 285.7 situps of some kind a day. Crunches, military situps, leg lifts, bicycles, oblique crunches, etc. Whatever. I added an ab tracking widget on the right to keep track of my progress. Check back for updates!
Join me for this mini challenge. It’s only seven days of 285.7 ab exercises OR one day of 2000. Either way.
Who’s with me?
