This one needs a do-over

I need a resolution do-over.
It's only been 10 days and I feel like all of the great ideas, goals and dreams that I had in my little crazy dreamy head 10 days ago has now become clouded with the mundane day to day tasks that I do daily. YUP I am already over it. Then I came across this. It's probably the #1 reason why I never meet my goals. That and procrastination. Sounds easy enough, at least putting it down on paper does.






Here is my example:

Specific: I am going to lose 10 pounds

Measurable: lose 10 pounds and go to the gym 3 times per week

Attainable: Drop 1 to 2 pounds per week

Reasonable: I'd say it is. :)

Timely: By April 23 ( my b-day)

Ok so not sure how to go about it all. After all I am a SAHM and I have two toddlers so they are #1 priority. I need to work around their schedules too and let's not forget the hubby. He needs some attention too and food every once in awhile. I basically need to pencil "me" in and hope there aren't any illnesses or bumps on the road.

I think it's time for me to create a planner. I am not a list maker or calendar user but it's sounding pretty smart ( no pun intended) right about now. My brain has been foggy lately....which reminds me , I should start taking vitamins and brain food like omegas. (I see another goal to make)

I find that Simple Mom and Life Your Way are a great resource with tons of info on organization and free downloads to help you create that home planner.

Oh my as I sit here I am finding that I need to make a list of all the to do lists and checklists that I need to create.

I'll start tomorrow. It's winethirty here at Casa Bradfield. Goodnite.
