Menu Planning & Writing a Grocery List

If you want to stick to your diet, it is very important to plan a healthy menu, make a list, and stick to it when shopping. Stores are sure to put fattening and expensive treats on the end of an aisle and at eye level to get you to buy. Be sure to eat before you shop, to keep from impulse buying!

Monthly Budget

Making a budget every month helps me stay on track. I purchased a book and 'Pre' spend all my money for the month. This way all our bills are always PAID. It feels great!

Prep Your Bills

I pay my bills the old fashioned way, by mail. To save time, I "prep" them as soon as they are brought into the house from the mailbox.

Getting ready for work

I have started putting my outfits for the week together on Sunday. I hang the entire outfit (assessories etc.) on a wooden hanger and put them all together at the front of the closet.

PLAN AHEAD AND KEEP THE FRIDGE/PANTRY STOCKED WITH HEALTHY OPTIONS

Always have a plan! Going out to run an errand at lunch? In a meeting during lunch? Plan ahead by keeping water and a piece of fruit, some nuts etc. with you in your car or briefcase. Don't be tempted by the drive thru if you are in a hurry!

storage

I put one of those shoe storage things that hang on the back of the door in my pantry. I measure out snacks and put them in bags and write how many cals . I then put the bags in the organizer . When I go looking for a snack it's easier and I know exactly how many cals I am eating. emoticon

Small Actions over time = big results

Just like with weight loss, you need not tackle all your organizational issues at once. Try 15 minutes a day, and you'll find yourself with 105 minutes (1 hr, 45 mins!) per week of organizational work.

making life less hectic

I keep a binder with my routines. My routines include such things as: bedtime routine -- laying out clothes for the next day, setting up the table for breakfast the next day, setting up meds for the next morning. That way I can check to see if I've forgotten anything at the end of a hectic day.

Plan today for tomorrow!

In the evenings I block out just a little bit of time to prepare for the next day...pack my gym bag, set out my clothes for the next day, pack my lunch, whatever I can do to make my morning less stressful!
