Anyways, today I'm going to talk about getting my shit together. For the past few weeks, I've been unpacking, answering the door and being interrupted by the countless deliverers, service men, and construction people, all while trying to develop a routine. Now that most of that stuff is kind of calming down, I'm ready to get it together.
This week I started a "list." Now, George is always telling me that my to do list should be electronic, so I'll always have it, it's editable, and you can share it. While this makes a ton of sense, it's just not how I work. I need a physical piece of paper. (Pretty paper makes it better).
My goal is to do a list for each week with what I need to complete for the week. Here is this week's list.
I found this free printable from I Heart Organizing here... and yes, unpack alcohol is one of the items on my to do list. (Already done).
Next up, the running. Oh dear have I been slacking on the running. It's bad, like real bad. After my marathon it took me a solid month to recover. When that recovery time was up, it was -10 outside. Then, I got busy with the move, so here I am. On April 9th, and I've run less than 30 miles for the entire year. Yikes.
Well, I'm going to slowly but surely, ease back into it. There is an AWESOME trail exactly 0.4 miles from my front door to the trail head. This trail goes on for 26 miles, so you have plenty to run on.
Lastly, I'm meal planning. I'm picking at least 3 dinners and buying all of the ingredients on Sunday or Monday. Going to the store every time I want to make a meal is a real drag and discourages me from cooking. For this week, I planned barley and lentil curry soup, crock pot chicken fajitas, and Greek quinoa burgers.
The lentil soup was a recipe from Real Simple magazine, and it sucked. The lentils and barley ended up soaking up all of the liquid, and it turned into just a bowl of lentils and barley. If you happen to run across it on Pinterest, skip it.

Do you have any goals for the upcoming weeks?
