Clean Diet, Clean House, Clean Mind

I looked around my kitchen this morning and realized my counters were empty and clean. The clothes in my closet, all put away.

This is the rule these days, not the exception.

I used to envy friends for their cute, clean, organized apartments. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t dirty, but I certainly wasn’t very neat, and I didn’t put much thought into my apartment, the way I didn’t put much thought into how I treated my body.

Then, once I realized that I could treat my body better, I started treating my apartment better. Nothing huge, just little things like cleaning up as I went so that I didn’t hate cleaning as much because I had to be on my hands and knees for hours.

Or maybe it’s an age thing, and I finally grew up. Either way, taking more pride in how I treated my body led to taking more pride in how I treated my mind,my friends, my family, strangers, and, certainly, my apartment. I now take pride in it. I like having people over.

Wanna see? Take a look at Bailey Cam!

[Edited to add: that photo on my Ustream account is clearly a before.]

I’ve been grabbing breakfasts and lunches this week because of an unfortunate Tupperware incident last weekend (my mom accidentally took it all home when she was helping me move), but I’m trying to get back on track with that…

Until then…
