DONE THIS AM:
✔︎ sorted ~1 week of mail
✔︎ went through / responded to / triaged work & regular email. Not at Inbox 0, but at 9 (work) and 5 (gmail) as of this moment.
✔︎ generally completed any less-than-5-minute task in the email (paying bills, responding to quick questions, etc)
✔︎ made kids’ lunches (I only do this on Mondays, for the record – G does it the rest of the week)
✔︎ drew out weekly checklists & calendars
I did not work out or post (obviously!) but can say that these ~2.5 hours were well worth it. I was quasi-panicking about what was lucking in my various boxes and honestly — it wasn’t nearly as bad as I had thought, but there were several things I’m glad I dealt with. And while I’m tired today, I prefer that to ‘totally anxious and behind.’
So, there you go. My system definitely works but no one can get away with just ignoring everything for days!!
Weekly Workouts (last week):
Monday – none
Tuesday – 3.44 mi, 9:44/mi average, morning run.
Wednesday – BB 21 DF Upper Fix, 8 and 12 lb weights. Pushups: 19 on toes / 4 on knees during round 1, 11 on toes / 9 on knees during round 2 (I like tracking this particular move b/c I feel like it’s a good ‘fitness test’!)
Thursday – 3.04 mi, 9:21/mi average, morning run
Friday – none
Saturday – 3.91 mi, half with the kids on their bikes (Josh also ran & pushed G in her stroller). 10:59/mi because running this way is not very speedy 🙂
Sunday – BB 21 DF Lower Fix, 12 lb weights and I am SORE from this today. I was going to try the “Extreme” but realized they didn’t have a Lower Body! This week I am going to delve into the scary world of 21DF Extreme. Hold me.
This week’s meal plan
Monday – salmon, sweet potatoes, broccoli
Tuesday – spaghetti w/ meat sauce (turkey) & green beans
Wednesday – leftovers
Thursday – curry shrimp & naan or rice
Friday – leftovers
Saturday – probably takeout (Josh is on call)
Sunday – maybe fajitas or some kind of ‘self-assemble’ meal the kids will be into 🙂
(Our nanny came up with this because in my frantic rush to get things done this morning, menu planning did not make the cut)
On another note: I need a new fiction book rec. I had to return The Island of Sea Women to the library and will reorder it, but while I’m waiting to move up that queue, any recs? Bonus points for a ‘fall’ feel 🙂
