As part of being more intentional I have decided to take the advice from the website lifeyourway.net. Today I am sharing what needs to change in my life and why it is like that. I believe it is very important to explain why these negative things are in my life and I've allowed them there. I'm also adding how I can change this behavior.
1. My bad eating habits.
Why: I don't plan my meals and I end up skipping meals and replacing them with Dr. Peppers. Once I do eat, I eat, it's always crappy food. Very rarely do I sit down to eat. Crap like lunchables, cookies, Debbie Cakes, and Ritz crackers pretty much make up my diet.
How can I change this: I need to factor myself in when I am meal planning. I need to start buying more fruits and vegetables. Fixing my lunch at night makes it easier for me to stick to eating right and makes mornings less stressful. I also need to work on phasing out Dr. Pepper or at least limiting it down to one. One thing that needs adding to my daily routine is breakfast to eliminate mid-morning runs to the vending machine.
2. House cleaning not being consistent.
Why: I don't stick to cleaning schedules well because some days I just physically can't after working all day. Although I love schedules, cleaning schedules don't work for me because of my husband's all over the place work schedule.
How can I change this: Make a list of realistic chores that need done daily, weekly, and monthly. This chart needs posted so Jeremy can see it what he can do.
3. Our chaotic mornings
Why: I don't always wake up before Jack, I don't always lay out our clothes, sometimes I have to shower, I don't always make sure my lunch is made, I sometimes have to stop to put gas in the car, and I often have to run around trying to find last minute things.
How can i change things:
Wake-up no later than 5:40. Do the following the day/night before:
-take a shower
-put gas in car
-take out trash
-set out clothes
