Mopping sucks

Thanks for all of your entries into the B.I.C. bands giveaway! There is still time to enter. I'll post the winner on Wednesday evening.

I had a very relaxing weekend, like I needed after a week of being sick with colitis problems. Here is a collage of my food over the last two days and I of course ate a lot of food that is unpictured like chobani, string cheese, & pita chips.

I also made Paige's mug cookie, but I made it in a bowl.

It didn't turn out as well as I had hoped it would, but it tasted great. I just couldn't eat it all because it was so sweet!

This morning, I had a big mug of coffee while watching CBS Sunday Morning. The story in the background was on shape up type shoes like Sketchers Shape Ups, MBT, Puma, and Reebook. The final conclusion is that those types of shoes don't really engage muscles like the shoe companies claim they do. (Sorry Angie)!

I was pretty lazy today overall because I needed to relax and still recuperate from feeling sick all week.

But, I was productive with laundry and the worst task of all: mopping. You see, we're going away this weekend and I don't want to leave a sloppy house for my in-laws while they come and check on the cats. I guess the worst part of mopping is clearing the items from the kitchen and bathroom before getting to the task itself.


It's really nice to have a clean kitchen though!

I did make it to the gym tonight. I followed Jillian's advice from her podcast and didn't stretch before my workout. Instead, I warmed up on the BOSU before lifting a full circuit of weights. I also walked and ran the track for 10 minutes. I didn't need to do a lot of cardio because Craig and I walked almost two miles in the humidity this morning.

And now, I am finishing watching the movie Conviction. It's pretty good--not one of those movies I was super excited to see, but an intriguing story overall.

Time to sign off and get ready for bed! Hooray for a four day week for me. :)


  1. Ugh - I agree. I don't mind mopping, but I HATE having to vacuum,swiffer, and pick up the rugs BEFORE having to mop. Oh the joys of having two dogs and lots of pet hair. :)

  2. Boo that it didn't turn out as well! Maybe micro it longer? Hrmm...

  3. I'll try that--thanks Paige! I am determined to get it right so I can have a sweet recipe to turn to when I crave chocolate!
