2010 Turkey Tread and Toss Update

It's not too late to join me in the Turkey Tread and Toss leading up to Thanksgiving
* tread--10 minutes of daily exercise
* toss--trash, recycle, or donate 5 items per day

I skipped my arduous ten minutes of tread yesterday, but I've managed to tread and toss the rest of the days.
What am I "tossing"? My clothes, kids clothes, toys, expired spices, and children's books are the main toss categories so far. I'm battling against a pack rat in my Bub though. He regularly picks through the trash and recovers "treasures." Just this morning he was shocked to find a Weekly Reader that I had the nerve to file in the garbage. The trick is keeping the donation pile hidden and taking the garbage out before going to bed at night.
What are your strategies for making time to exercise? Do you have some "toss" category ideas for me?

Yup - my husband is a pack rat too. And the danger is that he'll, for instance, show up on our date (before we were married) with a faded blue yellow-tinged jacket from the Michael Jackson era that he found in his closet.

If I don't go to bed early enough, I just can't drag my carass out of bed at 5:30am. Too much. So -- when I get home tonight I will pedal for at least 10 minutes and do some sit-ups. That's the plan anyway.

I'm tossing a LOT of stuff. Our garbage bin is full and the Goodwill box is too. I need to find another box now. :) I'm hoping to convince my son to help me choose what Goodwill should have.

I work out 5-6 days a week. But only because the gym has day care. If not, my lazy butt would be on the sofa. In my whole life, I have never kept up an exercise routine until now. It's my sanity. Sadly, it hasn't mean much in the way of pounds lost, but it has definitely made me stronger and more fit. I would never have dreamed of running a 5K before and now I can do it with virtually no training. I know, who is this girl.

Keep up on it, you can do it!
