Five minutes a day keeps mama sane...

I just made a new saying that should go viral and be known for generations.... Five minutes a day keeps mama sane.. Or alternately Five minutes a day makes mama go insane.. either way could break a day I'm sure. ;)

I am so glad that tonight during dinner my HUSBAND was the one who brought up our five minutes of cleaning.  My insanity the other night may have shown through.  So we after we finished dinner we set the timer on my phone and set it work on in the kitchen.

My husband unloaded and loaded the dishwasher, my daughter took art supplies back to the office and put random toys away as well as threw things away for me.  I cleared off the table of random crap and wiped it down, took 3 folding chairs downstairs and put away the random goody bags from Halloween we amassed.  It was not clutter free at the end but it looks better and makes me feel better.

I cheated a bit and did the dishes that didn't go in the dishwasher right afterwards and wiped down all the counters again.

Tomorrow we tackle the living room.  I know it needs to be vacuumed so we will need to work fast picking up items from the floor.  We did a good job keeping it picked up over the weekend but there are Legos and old newspapers that need to be taken care of.

In #mileaday news, I completed day 2! I ran/walked 1.5 miles and then did 3 sets of 15 crunches and 3 sets of 20 second planks. 

yes, another yay I worked out selfie!

My feet were screaming at me this morning when I woke up.  I am fairly certain I have plantar fascitis and I really need to take care of it.  I was doing much better and then I go and move my body again.

I also drank a lot more water today and my head feels clearer and I am not as tired as I usually am on a Monday so I feel good about that.

And one positive of daylight savings? I was able to drive home to a beautiful sky and sunset.  I may not walk at night after work again for 4 months but maybe the sunsets will keep me through.

Do you still get the newspaper delivered? What's your least favorite chore? Did you work out today?
