Today we are going to write a list organizing our week. Good time management is crucial. If you organize your mind you won’t be easily stressed.
Think about everything you need/want to fit into your week:
1.Exercise- I want to train 4 times a week
2.Shopping- Groceries, Errands
3.Spending time with the kids- I have 2 kids under 3 so at the moment one word DEMANDING!
4.Me time-I do my beauty regime. It's a small thing that you can do that just makes you feel good and you're looking after yourself.
5.Work- As Bra Queen I wear many hats so my work is never actually complete. I need to prioritize my work according to my deadlines.
6.Partner time-Every night I try to make time for one hour where I can just sit with Chris and well I was going to say chat but mostly it’s me chatting and him listening (maybe he’s listening)
7.Housework- I do 1 major clean a week then just bits in between.
My biggest aim is to try to enjoy and embrace everyday.
There is heaps of other “stuff” I need to do but I can work them in to wherever and obviously it’s changes week to week.
Mine is going to be as follows:
Monday- I like making sure I exercise on a Monday because it prepares and motivates me for the week. I also prepare my working week everything I need to do. Washing is usually on the list after the weekend! The girls sleep at 1pm and this is when I work. I usually iron once the girls go down at 7pm.
Tuesday- Is my exercise, work & spend time with the girls day. I go for my walk then on the way home I go the park so Maddison can have a run around as well. I work in the morning then again when the girls go down at 1pm. The rest of the time I try to spend being as proactive with the girls as possible as it is really our only day that we are not running around like mad people.
Wednesday- I work and I also look after Maddie’s boyfriend. Maddison isn’t in care I think it’s important that she still interacts with kids her own age.
Thursday- Is my housework day, grocery shopping day and work day. So this is a pretty crazy day for the girls and I it’s a bit of a whirlwind day. But I like to be super organized for the weekend.
Friday- Is me day! YAY, the girls are with Nan and Pa by half 9. This is where I spend ½ hour on ME doing my weekly beauty regime, then I work, work, work until the girls get home at 5pm.
Friday night once the girls are in bed at 7pm our “thing” is to sit down with a yummy cheese platter and have a drink together and chill out.
I encourage you to just do something nice at the end of the week with your partner, just so you can relax and have a laugh together. If you don’t have a partner do something you enjoy or spend it with someone who makes you feel good.
Weekends my checklist is done, except exercise so at least 1 workout is needed. But other then that I am sorted!
