According to scientific researchers, it takes approximately 21 days to build a habit. But, just in case, I’m going to work on building a habit in 30 days. So far, I’ve cooked 3 dinners this week and I have to say, it really wasn’t that hard, nor did it take long once everything was already planned. I didn’t have to rush out and get any missing ingredients or go through the drive-thru because I had nothing planned or ran out of time, it was actually pretty easy. Of course, this is only day 3 of 30, but so far so good.
I thought I’d make this fun for the family as well, since usually the first thing out of their mouths are “what’s for dinner and when do we eat?”, so I’m making up cute little daily menus with rating numbers that they can circle to let me know if they liked the meal or not. I figure the more I get them involved and make organizing this family fun, the easier it’ll be to get them to go along with it all. Below is a picture of tomorrow’s menu which I think they’ll get a kick out of! 🙂
I’ve created a million resolutions over the years and have yet to complete one! From losing weight, to eating healthier, exercising, organizing, etc. So, this year I’m only going to resolve to commit to one thing.
I’ve been a subscriber to FlyLady for a while now and I’ve started the program over and over again. I have yet to perfect it, but I stick with it because it works. Basically what the website is, is an online organizational coach. With emails and print outs, it teaches you how to take baby steps to organize your life, house, etc. It’s really neat because it breaks down daunting tasks into little baby steps making your goals easier to achieve. For example, for the life of me I can’t seem to clean every part of the house everyday, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get that done, take/pick-up the kids from school, cook dinner, do laundry, etc. So what FlyLady does is break it down into doable steps. It’ll concentrate on one room of the house to be cleaned thoroughly (in baby steps) throughout the week, all while still cleaning (maintaining) the rest of the house clean. It even becomes fun, believe it or not.
What does that have to do with resolutions? Well, that’s my one resolution for the year, to Organize everything in my life (my house, my body, everything)! Small feat? Yeah right! Not with my life, but I’m determined to make it happen and with help from you guys, I’m sure I’ll get there! 🙂
Okay, so life caught up to me & I’ve been M.I.A., but I’m back and here’s a quick synopsis of what my summer consisted of….
…A last minute mini-vacation in Las Vegas
Fall brought with it….
