Time Management

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Why on earth was there not a class in school called "Time Management" the world we live in is sooo fast and time consuming I think-time management is an essential skill. I feel like this week is going by fast and Im only achieving my goals every other day because the days I set aside to exercise or be productful are just that, separate days! For example I have church tonight so when I get home I have roughly 30-45 min to eat, freshen up, and what else is there time to do? I am needing to vent because I am stressed and that is not good since that tends to lead to negative habits I am trying to quit. Any ideas on easy healthy lunches I get overwhelmed trying to decide at the grocery store and any quick exercises that dont require lots of time? I would appreciate a little support from my fellow sparkers! Thanks!

    The Lean Cuisines are pretty good - most of them. Remember on those tight days, exercise can be 10 minutes. Also ideas I've seen is like taking the steps at work. But you have to make appointments for the things you want to do and like the church meeting, keep those appointments.

    I don't have to go to work, but I use Lean Cuisine meals plus some fruit flavored Greek Yogurt for my lunches. I understand there are padded lunch things to take frozen meals to work. For dinners, I have Healthy Choice plus a toaster strudel. I do my exercises in several 10 minutes chunks.

    Time management can be tough, and when you're trying to incorporate healthy new habits it can get even tougher! I try to keep some Healthy Choice soups in my desk drawer along with some almonds and dried fruit, so I always have "emergency" options for lunch/snacks. I'm not as good on the exercise. Some days I'll take a 10-minute walk around the building during lunch. I do keep a jumprope at home which is great, quick cardio (and I typically can't do it long enough to actually get sweaty!).

Hang in there - you'll figure out something that will work for you!
