We are celebrating our own little Mom- Olympics in honor of this year’s Olympic Winter Games. I personally love the ice skating. I have learned to hold my breath through nearly an entire routine in fear of the poor participant falling on their bum.
If you did not see the initial Game Challenge you can find it here.
We are tallying up points each day for household chores and general home paper pushing, like meal planning and paying the bills. Our points are our daily little mommy medals. I am aiming for at least 250 points each morning. This will be a snap because each Olympic Challenge listed below is worth 100 points!
The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.

1. Yesterday we added this to our list. If you choose a bigger project or a mini-project then work on it for 10 to 15 minutes today. 1oo points!
Find a task that seems to overwhelming to accomplish in one day as a busy mom. This could be cleaning out a big closet, deep cleaning the refrigerator, working on a craft project or updating a tired old balcony. Now for the remainder of the Mom-Olympics work on that project each day for 10 to 15 minutes and grab your easy 100 points. Last year I managed to clean out the broom closet in the just three minutes per day and finished in three! So this is totally a doable if you choose the right project.
2. Do the Messy Kitchen Challenge from this post. 100 points
3. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy – Find the messiest most disorganized corner in your home and spend 5 minutes putting away clutter and tidying. Easy 100 points.
Enjoy your challenges today! You are all rock stars!
