Truth or Dare

Back in January, I promised myself I would keep my counter top clear--in other words, I would do my dishes every night before bed.

As I started this weight loss journey (which is going quite well, thank you!) I realised I'd have to commit to it again--only this time I'd have to find a way to hold myself accountable. So, I figured I would take a picture of the counter top every night and when the week was up, I would post them. I'm not sure why. I do know that the very thought of doing this motivated me every single night those counters were cleared--to the point where they wouldn't have been cleared otherwise. And on the nights it wasn't enough to motivate me---well, I burned supper Sunday night and tackling burned pots and pans is a time consuming business around here. And Monday was very, very busy. My husband said he would do up the dishes for me--I snapped the picture just as he was about to make himself a snack (thus the peanut butter on the counter.).

So, here's the truth.





and, last night:


And I commit to the same deal for next week.
Keeps me honest.

Thank you all very much for your kind comments on the last post. I appreciate it.

The counter top looks great! I'm impressed. I wonder if playing truth or dare would get me to keep my counter-top clean???

Glad to hear the weight-loss is going well!!!!
