Health for days journey – May, 3rd (I need a laundry maid edition)

Happy hump day!!

Half way through the week, almost half way through the year…

I don’t know where the fuck we are going but we’re going pretty fast!! (Pardon my French, but I am no lady. I’m like Demelza!!)

I’M NOT following my beautiful and very organized schedule yet, because I’m in the process of gathering materials and I also need to get this household back on track before I can do anything else. The redecoration really made a mess, I mean, we made a mess, mostly me, and I need to get things organized before I get into a studying, eating, cleaning routine.

I’ve realized I need to make a few changes!!

  1. I’m a really messy cook. I need to start washing things as I go and never leave dirty dishes in the sink for the next day, otherwise I spend hours washing up every few days!! I can also control the number of utensils I use;
  2. I should also use less kitchen towels. I keep changing them and then having to wash way too many.
  3. Same with my clothes. I wear pajamas, I don’t change and do chores while wearing pajamas, and then they obviously have to go to the wash, as I can’t sleep in dirty pajamas. Then I end up wearing a different pair every night, when I could wear the same pj’s for 3 or 4 nights in a row.

I’m sure there are many more, but these are the ones that come to mind right now.

I’ve lost weight, having no idea why because after Easter and Rui being on vacation I’ve been eating like crap.

Yesterday I had no appetite and the same goes for today. My lunch has been sitting near me for almost 30 minutes, and I have taken 1 bite only. I only feel like drinking water. But, since I take strong medication, I need to force myself to eat something!

My task list for today is the following:

  • Read blogs and comment and be up to date on the ones that I follow;
  • Make a list of all the Awards I need to post;
  • Unfollow people who never interact with me or haven’t posted in many months, or the ones I always read and comment but don’t do the same for me. I feel bad about this but I spend way too many time reading blogs and people don’t even seem to care that I follow them, so I will only follow the ones I like, the ones that interact with others and myself;
  • Fold and put away a HUGE load of laundry;
  • Dry and put away the ton of dishes that I washed yesterday and wash the dirty ones from dinner. Story of my life is laundry and dishes, rinse and repeat!
  • Clean the kitchen and the living room, at least;
  • Take pictures and show you my new dressing table;
  • Wash a few blankets and duvet and pillows;
  • Interact on social media (I always forget to do this. People like whatever I post and I forget to return the attention. This bothers me way too much!! It’s just hard to keep track of everything, you know?)

I guess that’s it for today!

It’s a beautiful day, the sun is shinning and the weather is hot. Perfect for drying laundry outside. Yes, I’m an old woman at heart.

See you guys later?

  1. I recently had a big unfollow session and it has made keeping up to date with the genuine people so much easier. I did feel guilty unfollowing but I needed to do it for my own sake. Well done on losing the weight too!

    • I’m so glad I’m not the only one! We are two people at home, and there’s so much laundry all the time. I have no idea how people with kids do it! Thank you, dear Azra! I hope you have a beautiful day!!

  2. I need to do the same , unfollow those who aren’t interacting. I’ve spent so much time commenting on their blog that the love is never shown back πŸ˜’
    I’m the type of person who tries to help others and encourage and also give them a little bit of spotlight on social media but some people just want followers and likes…

    • Yes, I have some blogs that I follow and like and comment and I never see them doing the same for me. Come on, I try to do the same for people, even if I’m not always successful, I try my best to give everyone a little attention!

  3. I understand your struggle with the washing dishes. I don’t use to many but my bf does. like every utensil in the kitchen for one meal. lol. we both have a bad habit of not washing dishes as we go. we usually do dishes the next day or like last night 2 days ago…

  4. lol I’m such a messy cook too! I measure so many things, use the cutting board, my best knife, multiple pots and pans, etc. It really adds up quickly. Cleaning as you go makes it soooo much easier. I’d be in real trouble if I didn’t! πŸ˜›
    And you’re right, this year really is flying by! :O

  5. Cheila, yah I agree with you on the blogging del-follow, follow the genuine ones only. Laundry, not for me..I hope you accomplish your goals for today.❀


  6. I’m the same way with dishes when it comes to baking, but I’ve been forcing myself to clean up as soon as the thing goes in the oven so I don’t wait for everything!

  7. I always start cooking by making a sink of hot soapy water, so I can wash as I go. When we cook, I always tell my kiddos, “Cooking is messy. It’s okay to spill. We just have to clean it up.” As for a laundry maid, I really think the idea of a laundry fairy would be a lot more fun. The clothes would just magically wash, dry, and fold themselves. πŸ™‚ Best of luck on today’s to-do list!

  8. Keeping tabs on all those lovely blogs can be a bit of a challenge! It’s even worse when you are back from a break! I’ve got so much to catch up and I feel pretty bad for neglecting my blog for so long. Occasionally I also indulge in unfollow sessions because there are so many blogs but only a few who love to interact! I know that for most people cleaning up can be so much trouble but I love cleaning up the mess. Guess I’m wired that way! πŸ˜€
