In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

Week in Review

It’s the end of my second week of back to work.  I feel like I’ve gotten into a rhythm with daycare and going back to work.  I have a better idea of what I need to do in the morning, but I should wake up the girls a little bit earlier.  I’ve been enjoying some lazy morning time in the morning, but cutting it a little close arriving to my work.  I feel like I am transitioning out of the need to survive and into a place where I can plan for success.  Make a plan or plan to fail time.

  • The meal plan has been going well.  This week I will be having Ravioli, Weiner Beaner Loaf (sandwich), Beef Stroganoff, and Italian Dunkers (Are recipe names capitalized? Do they need to be underlined or in quotes?  It looked odd if I didn’t capitalize it, but I wasn’t sure what grammar requires).  I’ve made all but one of the meals I’ve planned for the last two weeks.  I may make it this weekend or I may use the chicken for something else.  I am going to start a list of recipes to add to next month’s plan.
  • I met with a personal trainer for a free consultation.  I enjoyed it.  He gave me some exercises to work on my stability and muscles that are out of balance from running or having kids.  He’s also going to send me a heart rate training program and gave me pointers on my running form.  I ran 2.75 miles at the Y on Thursday which is more than I have been doing lately. It wasn’t in a row, but hopefully I can keep it up.  I’m hoping this combined with my Corn Maze 5K will motivate me to get into a more consistent exercise routine and to push myself harder.
  • The house has slipped so hopefully I can get back under control this weekend and get back into doing some of those cleaning tasks done so it’s not a sprint to get it done on the weekend.
  • We are taking a road trip to one of my husband’s inline skate marathons next weekend.  They are fun to watch; he goes about 20 mph.  I am getting to know some of the skaters so its more fun to gab with them and cheer on the ones that I know.   So packing is on the to-do list for next week

Now to plan out my weekend and next week so I can make progress on all my goals and still have time to hang out with my girls, husband, and relax.  So hopefully I can find a balance and not neglect one area of my life or burn out.  Have a great day!
