The importance of planning ahead
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
So it is only my 1st week with my new schedule and already I am realizing how much planning ahead would be beneficial to me. Today I went to work, met my study partner, stopped at the store, home, started crockpot meal for work tomorrow, prepared crockpot meal for dinner, vaccuumed, cleaned fridge, took out garbage, fed dogs, etc. I started class on Friday. For the next 8 weeks this is my schedule:
Sunday-church, study, spend time with hubby, gym optional
Monday-class from 7:30am-10:30am, work from 11:30am-5:30pm, gym (not optional), study
Tuesday-work from 7am-5:30pm, study (meet study partner)
Wednesday-work 7am-5:30pm, gym (not optional), study
Thursday-work 7am-5:30pm, study (meet study partner)
Friday-class 8:30-11:30, work 12:30pm-4:30pm, gym (not optional), study
Saturday-study, gym (optional), spend time with hubby, work on my Saturday (1 per month)
WHEW! This doesn't even include cleaning, cooking, shower, me time, etc.
The next 8 weeks are going to be just as crazy! I know I can do this and will succeed in all that i want to accomplish: B or better in my class, weight loss of 5lbs/month, gym 3 days/week. I just have to put my health & school above everything else.
This long weekend is going to give me time to start my paper for my class, read my homework, come up with a schedule of meals for the next few weeks. I see A LOT of crockpot meals in my future. LOL.
Thanks for listening! I just realized all that I did today and was thinking how crazy it is. We want to add a child in the mix! I know if my hubby didn't work 2nd shift he would help out with some stuff too and he has! I don't have to worry about laundry this week! YAY!
