Your day sounds full too. I am having my p0lanned second breakfast now at bookstore. I actually stayed fo9r a second cloass at the pool because the instructor, who is also my personal trainer thought the 30 minute core and stretching class would be a good addition to my day. It was! I have to be home by 1 for meditation, so may just skip the stop I planned to make at market. It can wait if I decide I need more sitting in the bookstore.
I know what you mean about fluff reading. I go through long bouts of reading nothing but fluff. Those usually coincide with times when my creative well is dry and am experiencing what I call an infertile period for the writing.
My right knee is talking at me today, letting me know something I did yesterday, or maybe nothing I did at all, is bugging it. I am hoping this is short-lived and not a harbinger of a flareup.
Planning is something people do and then life happens... and it happens to all of us, doesn't it though? The ribs aren't THAT terrible, it's all the goodies that go with them that'll get you... baked potato, coleslaw, cornbread with butter and honey... MMM. ouch. LOL
I do try to plan my day out too, either the night before, or first thing in the morning. Just before bedtime, I make my "rounds"... I go through my SP checklist, make any changes or updates to the trackers, make sure my chores are either done or in a state to get that way, and check all the doors and windows to make sure they're closed and locked. (the neighborhood is better than it used to be, but still...lol)
Then I go to bed and read for about half an hour--usually what I call "fluff". You know, the light frothy romantic comedy kind of stuff... nothing serious. I tried reading the Tao Te Ching at bedtime once... that was once... LOL
It's a great book but you have to be ALERT to make heads or tails of it! LOL
Today for me is errands. Bread, milk, eggs kind of thing at the store... and I'm going to window shop for a new sewing machine, see what's available for the kind of money I want to spend...
Then it's the usual, housework--with an emphasis on the kitchen today, especially the floor... it's one of the hardest things for me to manage. I've already cleaned the tub in the bathroom and taken out the trash... my legs feel like spaghetti today! LOL
Wow, what fun we're having! LOL It'll get better--it always does!
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Yesterday's dinner ended up NOT being the spaghetti I had planned for because we were out running errands when starvation hit. We went to Sonny's for ribs. I have to adjust yesterday's tracker to reflect the change. I may not get to the trackers til after water aerobics though.
The plan for today is so far on target. Got up early and had breakfast with my partner, Mike. BIG breakfast cuz he has brain fog issues in the mornings if he does not have a seriously good breakfast. I made bacon and eggs, whole grain toast with real butter, strawberries and a pineapple slice. Then I packed him a lunch that included tuna and anchovies and veggies. That will NOT be my lunch. LOL! Now trying to get some online chores done before biking to the pool for a water aerobics class. Then, there will be a break at a bookstore for second breakfast and some writing, also possibly the trackers. Then, home in time to lead a 1 pm online meditation group. After lunch, the afternoon will be spent writing and sorting about 2 tons of clean laundry. I hope to be able to stop by 4:3O and read for an hour or two before supper.
