I'm So Unorganized! Help!

Last week I had such a busy week! I worked one night shift and it threw me off all week.
One thing you might not know about me is that I'm horrible at organizing my days. I know what I'm doing that day, but I don't organize myself for the day.  This week I plan on writing out my schedule on an hourly basis. My days are getting full and I'm really happy about it. It's good to stay busy, but I need to remember to add sleep into my schedule. I was so tired last week and it doesn't help that I missed the gym too. Yuck, I feel so frumpy. Right now, I have some downtime, but I do have a lot to do. Next week will be even crazier. One thing I'm doing to change things up in my life is to wake up early and actually do something. I usually waste time by lounging around in the morning watching Peppa Pig with my daughter. I've been going to evening services at church on Sundays, but I want to make it a habit to go in the mornings. I joined a moms group that I will be going to once a week in the mornings and now I need to fit the gym into my routine in the mornings too.
 I get so much more done that way. But, I need to figure out how to do all of this without being so tired. I love coffee, but coffee doesn't always cut it. Can't forget baseball practices, baseball games, mixed martial arts classes, etc. etc. etc. BETTER GO! SO MUCH TO DO!!!!!

Any tips on how to organize my day? How do you do it?

A Toddler Life.

Hi there stranger! It's been a while! I've been very busy tending to my family. Especially my little girl. She is a handful. She is 20 months now. I can't believe it!
Currently, she loves to take her diaper off (in public and at home), rub her dirty hands of food into her hair after she's done eating, play with the water cooler (so annoying), and climb onto EVERYTHING!

She's attempting to talk. It's still mostly gibberish. Her favorite words to say are mom, dad, up, more, "bah" for bottle, and "mmmm" for good, and she grunts when we say "poop". So, I guess they're not ALL words, but you know what I mean. She'll occasionally repeat other words after we say them, but they are not in her daily vocabulary yet. I'm thinking about speech therapy, but not sure yet. I'm going to give it another month.
She's not potty trained. I should be working on it. Were not on the same page. She thinks her potty chair is a puzzle and she's always breaking it down and putting it back together again. When I left her diaper off, she peed on the floor in amazement....a couple of times.

We can't go the restaurants and movie theaters with her right now. She is SUPER CRAZY when we take her. We've already had to leave a few restaurants with to-go boxes and we would take turns waiting in the lobby of the movie theater so the kids could finish watching a movie.

Her favorite foods right now are cheetos puffs, chicken nuggets,french fries, apples, chocolate, and steak. We don't offer those everyday for health purposes, but she would eat these things all the time if we offered them. We're trying to eat healthy (all of us), but sometimes we use these as a back up to keep her calm, quiet, and collected. LOL.

LIFE IS NUTS WITH  A TODDLER. But, we love her to pieces and we LOVE the boys to pieces for being patient with everything especially their little sister. We wouldn't have it any other way!

That's pretty much our life right now.

Do you have a toddler? How's life?

I Want To Be Healthy, Fit, & Inspiring Others.

It's been a while since I've posted on here. I really miss it. The thing is....I don't have internet. Boo! It's been almost four months and I'm going crazy! I've learned a lot from not having internet access and I hope to share it one day.
For now, I'll be posting from my phone. It's really hard for me because I'm really anal about how I post stuff on here, but I love blogging and it'll just have to be something that I deal with for now. I ran into an elderly lady just recently and she told me, "If that's the only problem you have in life, then you really don't have any problems". It made me reflect on how I look at things. What a great reminder about life!
Changing topics. I've been struggling with my weight since I've had my baby girl. I've gained at least twenty pounds and I feel it! My body aches, I'm tired, and I have ZERO motivation.
It has put me in a desperate situation where I'll do almost anything to lose weight. So, I've decided to invest in a product that I'm curious about. I've seen it everywhere and I've seen REAL results. So I'm going to try it!
I don't want to share it on my blog just yet because I want to see if it works. I'm going to try to document this journey and I'll do it for 30 days. If I see results, I will be on here telling you that it works!
Beginning May 1st, I will be on my journey to fitness. In 30 days I want to be telling you that it works ! I want to have a day where I'm healthy, fit, and inspiring others including my family. I want to show them that it's possible to lose weight at any age and weight. 
From now until May 1st, I will start planning out my meals and workout schedule. I may even start a little early by adding exercise and cutting down on foods that I shouldn't be eating. Wish me luck! I need it! 
Do you struggle with weight loss? Do you have any tips for me?
((Big hugs)) Liz
