If I were to pick the area in my life where I find I struggle the most it would be organization.
I feel (correctly or not) that if I were more organized I’d be able to eat better, work smarter and find time to go to the gym.
So, my September goals are going to focus on being organized.
Now, I’m spending two weeks traveling for work, so I’ll really just have to do the best I can while away, but I’m going to try to be awesome before I go away.
- Plan all meals for the week before grocery shopping. The Cowboy and I tend to be a bit up in the air on weekends, so I’m excluding these. (below menu starts September 10)
|Breakfast||Overnight oats||Overnight oats||Overnight oats||Overnight oats||Overnight oats|
|Lunch||Chopped chicken salad||Chopped chicken salad||Chopped chicken salad||Chopped chicken salad||Chopped chicken salad|
|PM Snack||Energy bites||Energy bites||Energy bites||Energy bites||Energy bites|
|Chicken stir fry||Pasta & salad||Chicken wraps and salad||Anniversary dinner at Rouge|
- Plan exercise for the month including rest days. My half marathon is in just over a month, so running right now is super important. I may not be able to run while I’m away for work, but I do have some fitness DVD’s on my iPad that I’ll work on (September schedule is below; orange = out of town)

|10k race pace||off||5k run||10k run||off||Drive to Kelowna||3k run|
|21.1 RACE DAY|
- Prepare a “to do” list for work, weekdays and weekends in advance including all food prep to be completed on Saturday/Sunday so I’m ready to go for the week. (I’ll post this weekends list later on this week).
Compared to other monthly goals this seems shorter and a lot more general, but I think this will really help me to keep it together.
