The Revised Plan

1. Work out at least 20 minutes per day. I can skip a day, but ONLY if I've already banked the time. (For example, if I work out 40 minutes Saturday and 30 minutes Sunday and 20 minutes Monday, I can skip Tuesday and only work out 10 minutes on Wednesday.) Banking does not carry over after 7 days.

2. Do pushups and crunches EVERYDAY. For now, my goal is 30 fake ones and one real one

3. Erase the evidence of whatever I do - cooking, getting dressed, coming home from work.

4. Do one extra thing each time I do a task. For example, while cooking lunch (roast beef sandwich) and grabbing a plate from the dishwasher for the sandwich, I went ahead and unloaded all the clean plates from the dishwasher. Unloading the whole dishwasher would have taken too long, but unloading that one extra thing took no time at all.

5. 15 minute QC (quickclean) everyday - either cleaning the area that needs it most, doing the task that needs it most, or decluttering. Again, I can bank the time, just like above, but not for longer than 7 days.

6. Make myself accountable for 365 days (starting on my birthday tomorrow) by charting it in my pda. I won't chart the erasing the evidence or doing one thing extra, but I will chart the workouts, pushups/crunches, and the QC in my pda.

Hold me accountable.

I don't mean to sound dicouraging, but that sounds a little, um...ambitious. But, you know, if you can keep it up, it sounds great.

Dang, whatever happened to one or two resolutions. You are piling a whole lot of shoulds on top of yourself! I do appreciate the little escape clause in #1 though, lol.

Work it girl! My workout usually consists of wrestling a swimming suit on a wild wriggling toddler... then sitting on my fat butt in the kiddi pool being spashed by said toddler. I wish I lived nearby, I could borrow some of that ambition.

good plans. When you work out remember it is good to have a day of rest in between. Rest for your muscles. I am glad to see your determination. Lord knows I have none. LOL! GOod luck

happy birthday!

well, depending on what the quick clean is, you could probably kill 2 birds with one and exercising. Also, cutting grass equals exercising, and so does mopping and vaccumming (sp?).

And, um, I agree that it sounds a bit ambitious. I can't fathom how you are going to manage to do all that, work, and have time for kids and husband...unless you combine and multi-task! Good luck with that though!

I think it sounds good! Definitely doable! Good luck!

I am a fan of #2. This will be my goal, too. Along with my annual resolution to do more yoga. And boxing.
