I’ve been drowning a little the past couple weeks. Trying to fit in all the stuff that needs to be done, from laundry, cooking, cleaning and school pickup, to running my business and keeping on my half marathon training schedules. It’s just been busy. Top that with not being able to find everything after moving in and I was becoming a bit crazy.
Finding a routine is hard and I think I just lost mine in the midst of all the moving and transition. Suddenly it hit me last week, that I had a good schedule going before we moved and all I needed to do was get back into it.
First up, was reprinting my busy mom’s Cleaning Schedule and getting it back on the wall. Focusing on a couple things a day is helping me not get overwhelmed and helping this house not look like a complete nightmare. I also just bought a dustbuster. This Black & Decker one to be exact. I have way too many crumbs on my floor to pull out the broom and dustpan twice a day!
Next up, was getting my meal plans back in line. I love, love eMeals but I wasn’t printing off and using the plans! I use their plans in combination with my own Monthly Meal Planning. Now, when I wrote that post, we weren’t eating as healthy as we are now. My meals look a bit different now and I could get away with less trips to the store. Now, I can go about once every 7-10 days. Which is way better than the every 2-3 I was doing last month. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I just started planning my whole month out again, which is so great for me. I don’t have to think or worry about dinner outside of my 1 nap time of planning.
Lastly, I got my workout schedule back in place. My training for the NYC half wasn’t that great, but I think I’ve found my stride. The hubs and I area also kicking booty in P90X3. Agreeing to workout together from 6-6:30am has been great so far. Accountability is where it’s at and I think both of our swimsuits will thank us come summer!
If you have tips for keeping me organized and on track, I’ll take them!
