New Year's Resolutions

I made 2 resolutions this year.

1) Do housework 30 minutes, 3x/week.
2) Exercise 30 minutes, 3x/week.

My stretch goal is to do these both 5x/week. But I will consider it a success at 3x/week.

So far so good. Of course, we're still in the first week. But here are my results to date:

Monday: 30 minutes cardio, 15 minutes core workout, vacuumed basement, tidied
Tuesday: full body weights (didn't time it, but I know it was more than 30 min), put away Christmas decorations, emptied/filled dishwasher, vacuumed top floor
Wednesday: No exercise, did laundry
Thursday: 25 minutes yoga, vacuumed main floor

Not bad, eh?

Of course, what I haven't mentioned yet is that I used my new Roomba to do all the aforementioned vacuuming. It still takes time, because you have to pick up anything Roomba might get stuck on, and empty out his bin at the end, and put everything back. But it's a hella lot easier and more fun than traditional vacuuming.
