My Attempt At In-between

Remember when I talked to you all about me being an all-or-nothing type of personality?

I'm either on a diet...or I'm eating chocolate Dove caramels by the bag and gaining weight by the millisecond.

Halfway? What's that? Happy medium? Only if you want to be only half-way happy...

A clean house? What house...I have a house?

Not when I'm on a diet and blogging about my diet I don't have one...

he, I'm trying to make light of something that is actually a little bit of a dilemma for me. How do I reap the benefits of blogging about my diet efforts all the while, manage the house with five kids, keep it clean and organized? How do I spread out my efforts in such a way that I don't overindulge one area while ignoring the other?

Maybe I'm preaching to the choir here. Maybe you all know what I'm talking about, after all, you also blog too.

So, while I am making fantastic strides in the fitness and diet realm, let it be known, that I'm also trying to get a better handle on the "other" shall I put it...the not-so-fun realm.

Does anyone have any good ideas on how they keep things balanced between maintaining a blog and getting the other important stuff done?

Gosh, if I could just be as disciplined about keeping the ole' homestead organized as I do with counting my calories, this place would be spotless. Well, maybe I don't because, I don't wear my house on my hips.

I know...I'll do what my husband suggested, I'll start a blog on cleaning my house...the problem is...I wouldn't know where to start. Messes overwhelm me.

"De-Junk 20 rooms in 10 weeks"

Aiy yai, yai! Sounds like a trailer for a scary movie to me. I know...maybe my sisters-in-law should start blogs on that because they are great cleaners.

But if I know them, they're probably too busy keeping up on things to blog...hmmm.


  1. I think it's time for a new name for this blog. I'm just saying...

    Keeping balance between blogging and getting other important stuff done? Easy... let all the other important stuff slide. Problem solved.

  2. Using bodyweight can enrich a powerful and lean athletic physiques. Eating the right amount of foods can boost the immune system making it stable and healthy.
