Have you guys seen the movie Adventures in Babysitting? You know that scene at the end when they all get back from their crazy night and Chris (the babysitter) does a quick clean up of the house? That scene for some reason always stuck with me – weird, I know. It just showed how quickly you can get shit done when you really need or want to.
Some days I look around the house and just feel overwhelmed with how messy it is. And too lazy and tired to do anything about it. But I know I can’t relax if the place is a mess. So what I do is put on a good song and tell myself to just clean to that song. Get as much done as I can and leave it at that.
Doing that not only gets me started, but I usually end up cleaning for longer. But even if I just do clean for the length of that song I find I can actually get a lot done.
So if you’re like me and don’t feel like cleaning, try just doing it for one song. Or set a timer for 10 minutes.
Here is an awesome example of the 10 minute clean up which I found pretty motivating. Plus, I like the song a lot.
Oh and I didn’t really do my exercise challenge yesterday. I did move my body though. We went for nice walk as a family in the morning – Nathan pretty much ran the whole time.
A running toddler is pretty much the cutest thing in the world, by the way.
When we got home I decided to attempt to do Monday’s workout instead which was pushups and shoulder thingies. I did a few modified pushups and felt extremely wimpy. Then Nathan climbed on my back and I did a few more and we had a good laugh.
So all in all, not a complete write-off.
