Well, tonight, I ate THREE peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Why do I do that?
I have been doing so great on my fitness and diet and then I go and have THREE peanut butter and jelly sandwiches when all my children are asleep, my hubby is at a BBQ competition, and I should be folding laundry.
How do you recover from that?
Well, my normal instinct would be to go look for some ice cream because I've already blown it so badly! But, instead, I'm going to get busy with housework, which has been sorely neglected this week. I just wasn't feelin' it. Does that ever happen to you? I can have the house spotless (well close) one week and then I just sort of get bored and we make a big mess the next week and then I get fed up and get back on the wagon...I think I have housework ADD. Must be all those pesticides. (Did you see that CNN article linking pesticides and ADD? Interesting stuff!)
Anyway, it's hard for me to want to clean because I just can't really bend over with the baby getting bigger and so, I know there are things that I can't do...my perfectionism then limits me by saying, "Tara, you can't REALLY get this place clean, so why even bother?" Stupid perfectionism.
But after visiting one of my favorite blogs, Clover Lane, and reading about her penchant for organization and the fact that she subs in organizing and cleaning for stuffing her face with chocolate (well, she would never do that, because she's much too perfect, but you know what I mean), I decided to try cleaning instead of ice cream (which I think my hubby is hiding in the chest freezer in the garage.)
You know, I think if I lived in her house, with that gorgeous kitchen, I'd be so much more likely to clean and stay organized... nah...I'd still be a mess. :)
