Making a List and Checking It Twice

Posted Dec 08 2011 10:06pm

Happy Thursday from the land of the blue Christmas tree!

034 Finally, after four days of no internet, Bo came home early enough tonight to return the house and our electronics to a perfect state. I did my best to spend some quality time with the Time Warner Cable technical support but gave up after three separate attempts.

The past few days have been pretty hectic due to our compressed party planning schedule and a busy week filled with work meetings and volunteering though the New York Junior League.

I find that the easiest way to conquer a crazy week is to lay out some goals or a checklist for the week. This week I made a Monday through Thursday checklist to keep track of everything we needed to accomplish before Friday.

  • Stick to my workout schedule CHECK
  • Eat a healthy breakfast each morning CHECK
  • Reorganize the house when painters finish CHECK
  • Address and mail all our Christmas cards CHECK
  • Bring all the Christmas decorations up from our storage unit along with party supplies CHECK
  • Buy Christmas tree CHECK
  • Decorate Christmas tree CHECK
  • Set up snow village and other holiday decorations
  • Finalize party menu CHECK
  • Go grocery shopping for party CHECK (via PeaPod )
  • Volunteer at Nazareth House on Tuesday and Thursday CHECK
  • Finish Christmas shopping

As of tonight, the list has been completely dominated!

002 Overall, the week has gone pretty well. I definitely haven’t eaten as well as I would like considering that I’ll be basking in the Cozumel sun in three short weeks with Bo and our good friends! But, I’ve pushed myself in each of my workouts and done my best to remember some of the tips and tricks my Twitter friends shared earlier this week!

In addition, we are signed up for the NYRR Jingle Jog early Saturday morning to kick off the day with a sweat!

Question: How do you practice moderation during the holidays? Or, do you think about it on January 1st?
