Getting my extra hour per day

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

I'm working on getting that extra hour per day. I refined my number of trips to the gym to what really matters: personal training, body combat, zumba, and swimming. Training and use of the pool really motivated me to go to the gym.

I took cycling off my gym plan. I have a spin bike at home to use. I use Pandora with an upbeat station. I keep pedaling away. Sometimes I use my DVD spinning classes or rides for variety. Hence I save 40 minutes driving back and forth to the gym.

I am cooking two meals at a time and freezing one of them. I went back to my favorite 100 meals to make.

I also studied how much I volunteer. I end my term as president on 12/30/14. I will still help out, but will be selective in what I do. I can do the newsletter at home.

I have a housekeeper once a week as I have limited use of my hands due to RA. I value her time. I also try to decrease clutter a little bit each week.

I have lists for the grocery store and farmers' market. I can do when it is best for us. I try at 8 am to 10 am on a Monday or Tuesday for the grocery store and Thurs and Sat for the market. These places are 1 block from my home. Hence I can have fresh produce and fish.

    Good job on the scheduling. I imagine that being president has to take a lot of time. Even if it's only a little bit at a time even if it's done just a little bit at a time. I wish I could get so efficient to freeze meals for another day.
