Doesn't this make sense!!???

When I do not plan I don't get stuff done!!

I've been SAYING I NEED to do core exercises and ST on a regular basis, but I DO NOT do them. I am a member on the Biggest Loser Challenge (Taking on new members ,,, see my page,,, and click on the "Biggest Loser Challenge" and join us!! I am on the Invincible Indigo team) and each week we put how many cardio minutes we do and how many Strength Training minutes we do. I HAD in past challenges struggled, but this week, only 7 MINUTES!! While my cardio was 635 (WOOHOO on that!)

So when I woke up this AM I wrote down exactly what I wanted to get accomplished before I went to work.

Here it is:


9:10-9:25 Shower
9:25-9:35 Clean Bathroom (Its cleaned daily so it's super easy to do a "deep cleaning"
9:45-10:05 Walk
10:10-10:25 Core Exercise
10:25-10:30 Grab cards (to play if clients wants to) Dice etc
10:30 Leave
10:35-10:45 Grocery store for lunch
DONE (ran a few late)
10:45 to 11 Travel to work
11-3 Work
3- ??? Car inspection

The car did not pass (I expected that, OH DO I HATE THIS CAR on SO MANY Levels!!! BIG TIME!!! Yet, its sooo comfy and has a GREAT Stereo system. I can't wait to pay it off and get a REAL car!!! Again I say "STAY AWAY FROM NISSANS!"

WOOHOO saying "I want to do this" and writing it DOWN in detail has made ALL the difference!!

How do you handle your day? Do you schedule all or part the day out? Or just wing it?

TY for coming!!

    Tony Robbins - great motivator. Love your enthusiasm - I bet you would be great on his team. I'm better with spontaneity, but I have learned to be more structured. I have a motivation notebook.

    The first thing I see when I open my notebook is SP banner WHAT CAN YOU DO TODAY TO BRING YOU ONE STEP CLOSER TO YOUR GOALS? My goals and actions steps are in the notebook. If I open up the notebook I know I'm ready to work on my goals. I guess my big obstacle is to open the book.

    So what is this car that you hate... but is so comfy with good stereo?

    I know that is not the point of this blog... but I am trying to figure out what I want in my next vehicle and what I want to STAY AWAY FROM !!
    So I fixated on your car mention.

    Awesome planning, wow! Hats off to you! I'm like half and half. If it's a day with many to-do things, I plan them in order of doing them. If not, I wing it (a new expression for me!). I have an almost 18-year-old Toyota Rav4 we bought used 14 years ago. I wouldn't trade it for anything! Time flies by so soon you'll be able to get rid of the bad Nissan (hang in there!). emoticon emoticon

    It depends on what is on my agenda for the day. If the only obligation I have is to walk the dog I don’t plan much. But if I have appointments and obligations I write everything down

    Sounds like you've had a lemon of a car there, I always thought they were very reliable.
    I do plan my next day as I lay waiting to fall asleep, sometimes I have a B plan and often I think TWO days ahead. If I have the weather forecast in my head I plan whether to garden or what to do indoors or for fun.
    No day is entirely wasted.

    Have a great weekend dear friend emoticon

    I have had 3 Nissans. I loved mine. The frame went before the engine did though.
