Last night I got into a fall mood and cooked up a beautiful dinner that had the whole house smelling amazing!
Some pork and apples
And some roasted cabbage
I am such a list person! I get overwhelmed and stressed out very easily. But even just making a list calms me right down. Even if there are a million and one things on it, just knowing what I have to do and listing them in the order of the most important, helps me feel like I have a handle on things! (Even if I really dont!)
So with life getting hectic and my workouts and eating going downhill slowly, I thought, What better way to jump start my motivation than a list?!
So.... I present to you my 'Make Sure Everything Gets DONE List"
(great name right?)
I made cleaning a huge part of this list because for some reason I feel like I can't workout or take the time to prepare healthy meals if the house is dirty. And strangely, nothing puts me in a workout mood like a neat and tidy home! So knowing me, I made sure that I put that in there too.
I broke the 'Weekly Tasks' up so that I am only doing one per day. This way, even if the dust bunnies are on their third generation (they multiply like bunnies!!), I know that it will happen on Thursday so I can go ahead and take the time to workout.
My "Eating Score" is based off a point based reward and consequence system. I start every day with 15 points. I earn points by doing good things (working out, drinking 8 glasses of water, etc.) and deduct points for bad things (had a cookie, watched 2+hours of TV, etc.) I keep track of it on my phone.
I called it my 'Eating Score' because I am thinking of changing that system to track only eating and not other healthy habits. But I may keep it or go back to it so I wanted a flexible title.
I am really excited about my new system and I think it will go a long way with a personality like mine! I already can't wait to start checking things off!! (I know I'm super lame ;)
Are you a list person? Have you started making any great fall recipes?
