I am an anal, organizing, grumpy person if I don’t have a list, can’t start something until it is a Monday, but have to be prepared and if I’m not I have to wait until next Monday. This is the real me. But procrastination works it’s ugly head in there every once and a while. One of the things I need to work on is making excuses as to why I could eat this or that because it’s not Monday yet. I always eat the things I know I’m not going to be able to eat anymore up until Sunday at midnight.
I finally finished my weekly menu for next week. That took a while because I had tons of recipes I printed from Yummly. And it bugged me that the recipes weren’t separated and then they needed to be in a binder but first they need a sheet protector and tabs. Got all that, finished it with the help of husband. I use Yummly to make my menu. It makes things a breeze. I got all my recipes for the week entered in the meal planner which then prints out my grocery list. It’s spoiled me and if I can’t for whatever reason get my menu put together this way I will pout and then eat whatever I want until next Monday. It’s ridiculous. But organization is very important to me. I have to have all the recipes for the week pulled out and put them in the order of the day of the week. I keep all this in a folder. Each packet has breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks paper clipped together and ready to go.
I’m ready, yet I’m not. I’m nervous I’m going to fail. I am freaking out because what if I have no more excuses.
