Day 12, just 2 more days left of this course in making over my mornings. I know I keep saying it but I have really been enjoying getting things into a better rhythm around my home.
Today’s lesson was focused on finding a few areas in my life that I could simplify by creating routines. Crystal discussed how we all make what seems like a million decisions each and every day. Her suggestion to limit the number of mundane decision that must be made is to limit them.
For me one of the areas I simplify in this area is to meal plan and prep.
I do my meal prepping for 2 weeks at a time. I start with digging through my mountain of cookbooks
|This is where some AWESOME Thirty One product placement
should be BUT all my totes were in San Antonio being used.
Once I get home with all my goodies I begin to work. Most people have a system of chopping of the veggies, slicing the meat and things of that nature.
I prefer to prep one meal at a time. That is how I can keep it all straight.
I lay all the ingredients out on the counter. I then write the meal on a Ziploc bag. It makes it easier to know whats hiding in my tiny freezer.
From there I assemble all the ingredients. Sometimes recipes require that I separate the ingredients and for that I put them in individual baggies then into the big baggie.
Once its all said and done my freezer is stocked and ready for the next two week.
So the goals that I have set myself are that if I continue to follow through with my morning routine and my evening routine for the month of February I will treat myself to a mani/pedi Something I haven’t had in AGES.
