April 25: Getting organized
I spent a great deal of time getting myself organized this weekend. Last week was a wash as far as exercise was concerned. It is a habit that is unfortunately very easy to get out of for me. So, I spent the weekend trying to get things organized so I will have more time during the week.
I did the grocery shopping and some food prep. Today I baked a pot of brown rice and a turkey breast for some good left overs. I prepped veggies in their steamer bags and washed fruit and put it in single servings in baggies for lunch boxes. I have a lean roast to cook in the crock pot on Tuesday to give us even more leftovers. I'll cook that with baby carrots and new fingerling potatoes. I made a nice batch of trail mix for lunches and snacks too.
Next I organized closets. I packed away winter clothes and pulled out summer and spring clothes. I chose outfits for my daughter and put them together to help with getting ready in the morning, and I organized my vanity area too.My daughter has a broken arm, so outfits have to be pull on - no buttons and zippers on the pants.
Finally I cleaned. My house got SO messy last week when I was working full time. I don't know how people do it all the time. It isn't perfect but it's way better and I feel good about all that I accomplished.
I completed some jewelry orders and booked a jewelry party for Friday night. The last party was awesome - paid for groceries for a month!!!
I only have four days left on my diet break. Imagine my surprise when I hopped on the scale today and found I had lost a pound! I was shocked! It feels so EVIL to be eating ice cream on a daily basis to get my calories up. I will be very glad when the diet break is over, which probably puts me in the minority. I really feel better when my eats are under strict control.
Now I'm settling in for an evening of watching movies or reading - I haven't decided which one. I hope everyone had a peaceful, happy weekend.
