I, Bridget, solemnly swears to never buy things that will languish in the basement, to be covered with dust/dirt/cat litter/dead spiders. I solemnly swear to avoid buying tacky decorations for all major holidays, or things, that I might need "some day" such as gold glitter paint. Maybe I was planning a 70's theme something or other. However, I cannot bring myself to giveaway or sell my Fiesta Loony Tunes plates, sugar & creamer bowl...and clock. It was a phase. Don't judge me.

My morning was spent cleaning, tossing and packing our laundry room. It was dirty, dirty work. Not the type I enjoy (wink, wink). It was 4 hours of on my knees, scrubbing the floors, then the walls, and inhaling all sorts of nasty stuff. I think smoking a pack of cigarettes would have been healthier.

We have been making progress with the house. Things are getting packed, thrown out or donated. Wednesday, we are getting rid of the old, ugly ass, 70's kitchen table and chairs. Personally, I wanted to start a bonfire and do the Hustle in celebration around the dancing flames.

On the weight loss front, things are coming along okay. I am down to 143.0 and that makes me happy. If I can just get those last 3 lbs off. Maybe, I can with the new exercise routines I learned this weekend!

I work p/t at the local YMCA and to keep being a fitness instructor you have to earn CEC's (Continuing Education Credits). This weekend I took a 3 hr class called "Triple Threat." It was about using the step and stability ball to do an intense weight training circuit. I learned lots of great ways to work the chest, shoulders, back and legs. Tomorrow, I am going to head out to buy a ball so I can practice some routines. Maybe, I can still have those buns of steel after all.
