Last week I started following Courtney's 5 Week Challenge. In week 1 I took the challenge to write down everything I ate. I was pretty successful and it showed me why I have gained 20 lbs in these last two years. This week is a time management challenge.
Courtney over at Women Living Well is challenging us to write out a list of what we need to get done this week . Being so complex as I am I definitely need a schedule to follow or I’d never get anything done! I have found when I sit down on Sunday evenings and write down everything that needs to be accomplished for the week I am more calm throughout my days. One person who has helped me in the area of schedule making is Flylady. Check out her site here:
I don’t have a very consistent weekly schedule except Mondays when I plan my menus for the week and then go grocery shopping for the week. I try to get this done before 10am.
I do try to follow a daily schedule though:
6:30 coffee/Bible devotions and memory
7:30 get dressed, straighten bathroom, make bed, start load of laundry if needed
8:00 check menu for dinner, read e-mails and facebook
Work on blog
Work on projects for my Etsy shop
5:30 start dinner (I turn on the news while cooking)
Take out trash
Clean off desk in kitchen
Check calendar for tomorrow
9:30 Bed time (I set an alarm on my phone to remind me. LOL
My husband and I read in bed and lights out around 10:30 or 11
Thanks Courtney for this weeks challenge.
