Time Management

Time management.....What's that?

My parish had their annual Roast Beef Dinner yesterday, and I have been mentally and physically preparing.  Helping to set up, meetings, and trying to find kitchen workers has been occupying my time.  My blogging and my exercise routine has been pushed to the back burner, but now I can breathe! :)   The good news is our dinner was a success, and it all came together beautifully!  :)  Yay!

I have actually been killing it with my tracking.  Sometimes not always the best choices, but at least I am tracking and staying within my 1200 calories give or take a little. This is mostly because I am in 2 challenges.  One is for the month of October, and it is a Tracking Challenge.  The other is a Healthy Holidays Challenge for the last 100 days of the year.   Both are helping me stay accountable with my tracking!!  I like challenges.  I need things like that to push me to be my best.

Anyways, this is short because I have housework to catch up on, not to mention my blogs to read.  I miss everyone and seeing what they've been up to!!

I know it's not good to put your personal life aside when you are busy.  But that just seemed the first thing to move when I got preoccupied with life this past week.  Although, I am 50 now :)  I still have to work on putting ME first ALWAYS!!  :)

Since Greg is off today, I am still not in my routine.  Tomorrow is a new day!!  Back to life, back to the gym, and back to me!!

xoxo

    1. Tracking is everything with me. Problem is, I tend to sneak and not track it :)
