So for me fall is a big deal. My life goes back into routine cause I go back to work. The summer is so unpredictable. I have found it overwhelming in the past to go back to the routine of fall but this year I think I got it! Staying organized and not stressed is the key. I wanted to share some of my tips with you!
-write it down. I sat down one afternoon and literally emptied my head of all my jumbled thoughts.. it was so random but it helped so much
-make goals. I have some pretty big goals for September. Helps me stay motivated.
-meal plan - this is huge for me. For the first time I am monthly meal planning. I feel such relief. I choose healthy balanced meals for my family and feel so much better just looking at each week when I need to grocery shop and it's all done for me!
-this will be my first year making lunches (my two oldest are in grade 1) I made up a simalur monthly calender to my meal plan one and choose about 5 lunches and stuck them in spots so that each week I can see what I need. I plan to give them as little processed food as possible.. so I have been coming up with healthy snacks to fill the freezer. I plan to spend one day next weekend baking and freezing ALOT of things.
-I also planned out my excercise for the month. I try to work out 5 times per week but need to be intentional. So aside from bootcamp I have some slots for running and doing 20 minute workouts.
-I am up EARLY. I get up over an hour before my kids do so I can spend time wtih God and then add in excercise on non bootcamp days. I still have time to shower before I need to get everyone breakfast and get out the door. This time is so precious to me.
These are some of my tips on living a healthy balanced lifestyle. I'd love to hear some of yours!!
