The productivity that results from lists is amazing.
Goals. To-dos. Groceries. Doesn’t matter.
Despite anything I logically know, anything I’ve read, anything people have told me… I’m constantly amazed that lists work. Once I get my sh*t together and write a list – in order of priority – it magically* gets done.
I even make Vegas a food list – I tape a list of food/snack ideas to the fridge so she’ll know what we have and make healthier choices. She actually requested this!!!
*Okay, maybe not magically. I do have to actually do the sh*t. But it magical when I actually focus on a task and do it.
So far, 2018 has been a series of “OMG MY HAIR IS ON FIRE” and “I think this is the anxiety attack that will actually stop my heart.” The good news is that I *think* things are coming together. (Please, dear god, everyone knock on wood.)
Vegas and I might have an announcement soon! For now, here’s what we’ve been eating. Sort of. Be sure to link up to Jenn’s WIAW baby at the bottom!
Vegas brought me half a cup of coffee to bed, of which I drank half before coming downstairs to make our morning cocktails and start breakfast.
We’ve been on a Cottage Cheese Baked Egg kick. The reason is two-fold: we love them and we have a LOT of cottage cheese right now (note to self: revisit grocery lists).
I made an old favorite: Balsamic Marinated Chicken. It’s so great to have on hand for lunches during busy weeks.
We had a semi-homemade dinner from Hello Fresh. It was an Orange Chicken Stirfry. I took the base they sent me, made it bigger with chicken and rice we had here, and added broccolini, garlic, onions, yellow and orange bell peppers, and sesame seeds.
Literally cannot follow a recipe… which is funny, as its kind of like a list. It’s more a starting point for me to jump of off. It turned out really well though! Also, I don’t like rice (unless it’s in sushi), so I ate mine over spinach.
There was an unpictured square… okay, four squares… of chocolate after dinner.
I’m a proud member of the Type A club.
Are you a list-maker?
Does your spouse or SO need help navigating the fridge?
