Getting Started With A Bang

I decided I needed alittle help getting organized this year so I searched the internet and found some cool printable Household planner pages. There were alot to choose from so I picked the best for my situation. My favorite is the Daily List.. There are 2 columns one for morning chores and one for evening chores.. I also liked the Daily Planner that had a column for To do ... To go..
To call... To buy... and whats for dinner. Very cool day planner. I also found a neat Housecleaning Schedule a Weekly Menu Plan, Shopping List and the Daily Diet Tracker.. This one has space to log your food, serving size, calories, and servings by food group.. Anyway last night I made my list of daily chore I knew I had to get done today and my list worked like a charm. I got everything on my list done today and still had alittle extra time for myself. Of course this new list thing requires me to wake up at 5:00 am so I can get to the gym and back home before the rest of the house gets up.. That is the hardest part of my new and improved life for 2011. Here is the link so you too can print these cool planners.. Now I need to work on my menu for the rest of the week.. Tonight the family had one of my fastest and easiest meals... Baked Chicken Breast with Stuffing... Place your thawed chicken breast in your 9x13 pan... make stove top stuffing as directed and pour over chicken then pour a can of Cream of Chicken Soup over the chicken and stuffing... cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour.. This is great comfort food.. and mmmmmmmmmmmmmm good.

A New Year A New Me (in time)

Well HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone. Today is January 1st 2011. In 15 days I will be 41.. Another year down. Lately I have felt very overwelmed in my life. I have recently moved my hair salon out of my home and into a salon with another stylist and I also got crazy and decided to get a second job. Like I'm not busy enough right... I have given it alot of thought lately and I really need a change in my life. I am so upset with the way I look so I HAVE got to get a hold on things and get to work on some new healthier meals and I must get to the gym at least 5 times a week no matter what. I am going to use this blog as a log to let everyone know my progress.
I also need to get my house and family alittle more organized. With some help from a few new day planners and calendars and a couple of list I found on the internet we can make this year a very organize one. So today I started by putting up a new coat rack in the laundry room. This will save time and energy every morning on the way out of the house. On this coat rack I put Addie's backpack and both coats, my gym coat with gym bag, my black and brown pea coats that left one hook left for the hubby to hang his fav coat on..I also did ok on my eatting today.. This is the part of my life that will take the most disapline, planning and work. Tomorrow is Sunday so I will start the day by getting up at 7 and dare to go on a brisk walk make a healthy breakfast for the family then we will all get ready and attend church together as a family. After church it will be time to take down the Christmas trees. I think it will also be a great day for soup and homemade bread. Heres to a New Year and The Start To A New Me... Wish me good luck...
