Ducks, get thee into a row!

First things first. Instead of actually accomplishing anything on my list, I will utilize a popular procrastination technique -- I will organize and plan.

I like to plan. I'm so much better at that than the doing. So let's start there.

To help me wrap my little brain around this, I'm going to separate things into the following categories: daily, monthly, one and done and ongoing items. If something doesn't fit into one of those lists, well, I will squeeze it in like Michael Phelps into a speedo.

Let's just think about that image for a moment. Mmmm.


Moving on.

Here's how it breaks down.

    Drink more water
    Eat more whole grains, fruits and veggies and less meat.
    Keep an up-to-date calendar
    Establish a 6 a.m. workout routine that works

Once a month:
   Do something service related
   Go to breakfast with friends
   Call my brothers
   Do a random act of kindness for a stranger
   Write one handwritten letter and mail it

   Take more videos of Luke
   Fast once per quarter
   Read 25 books
   Set aside 30 minutes for prayer a week
   Go on six dates -- out of the house -- with my husband
  Grow a fresh herb

One and done: 
    Bake a loaf of sourdough
    Write something not for work
    Run a 10K
   Take Luke to the beach
   Hold a dinner party
   Make something craftty

My reaction after reading that: damn! How am I ever going to do all that?

But also, wow, if I do, that's really going to be fun. Seriously! I sound geeky, but I don't care. I truly am geeked.

Now, in the coming days, here's what to expect. A brief bit about each of these items: why each one is on the list, and what my "plan" is for taking care of it. If I know anything, which is certainly questionable, it's that I am not going to do a single one of these little things if I don't figure out how and plan a little. So we'll look at that. I'll start with the item that I just know is going to be the hardest to accomplish.

Want to wager a guess which one that is?

  1. Going along with the post after this one, you should put those things on a calendar, that way you have a deadline (I love love love calendars btw, especially ones with lots of things written in them :)
