I’m the queen of excuses. My biggie when it comes to exercising is timing. I require a shower after working out. There is no such thing as fitting in a quick workout between errands.
Nope. If this chick is going to sweat (which I tend to do more than the average person), she had better have time for a shower. And if she needs to wash her hair . . . her naturally-curly-has-a-mind-of-its-own hair, she also has to have time for it to air-dry before she needs to be somewhere that requires dry hair. To a straight-haired-person, this might seem like a lame excuse, but unless I want to walk around looking like I just came off of an 80’s music video shoot, I have to avoid hairdryers.
Since it’s Tuesday, I needed to clean the bathrooms. Bathroom cleaning, like exercising, requires a full-body-scrub-down afterwards. So, I exercised first. When I first began this 30 Day Shred challenge (like, yesterday) I planned to do housework first, then exercise, then shower. But when I compared the grossnesses, I decided that bathrooms won. Exercising first meant that I would already be sweaty when I worked on the bathrooms. Not so bad. But if I cleaned bathrooms first, I’d have the excuse of not wanting to get the nastiness on my rug when I had to lay down to do the (horrible and painful) ab portion.
If you’re new here, welcome to my brand of crazy.
Really? Is stuff like this as complicated for normal people?
As for my daily checklist, I’ve made the bed, cleaned and swept the kitchen, run the dishwasher (since I loaded it but forgot to start it last night), and cleaned bathrooms.
