Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan


Are you a planner? I am. I actually describe my self as a "Super Planner". I cannot function without a plan. I live by my Dad's motto: "Plan your work and work your plan."

I plan out everything - work and personal. I already have our Christmas vacation planned and booked. I typically book our trips 6 to 12 months in advance. Once I've booked the hotel room, I go back periodically to the hotel website to see if the rates have dropped. I've saved hundred of dollars by checking rates after we've booked.

I don't typically plan out my work as far in advance. 
I plan my work daily, weekly and monthly. 
I set my weekly and daily goals on Sunday. 
I use these awesome sticky notes. I stick them on my laptop and mark everything off as I go.
I use the sticky note on the computer for the current week, and plan for the next week on the sticky note that is still on the pad. 
I cannot live without these sticky notes!
I definitely use my iPhone calendar for most things, but I am on my laptop all day and like to easily see what I need to do.

For my monthly goals, I use Google Sheets.
I have a calendar and plan out my blog posts for the month (so I know what to cook).
Once the post is ready to be published, I change the color to green.
I love using Google Sheets because I can check my plan when I am on the go.
I can't tell you how many times I've pulled this spreadsheet up when I am running errands.

To stay on task, I am often grabbing a quick lunch while running errands or writing a blog post.
My go-to lunch is a Lean Pocket. Right now I'm loving the Roasted Turkey, Bacon and Cheese Lean Pockets with a pretzel crust. 
I mean, how can you go wrong with bacon and hot, ooey, gooey cheese?!?!
 I love that it is a filling meal with TONS of great flavor. A Lean Pocket and some baked chips totally fills me up.

We recently moved, and I lived on these Lean Pockets.
I had too much going on with working, packing and moving.
I didn't have a ton of time to stop for lunch; so heating up a Lean Pocket was perfect!


I am totally addicted to the pretzel bread!
I LOVE anything wrapped in pretzel bread, and these Lean Pockets satisfy that pretzel craving.

Lean Pockets are sold at Target, Walmart and most grocery stores.
I bought mine at Target.

If you aren't a turkey fan, I also LOVE the White Meat Chicken Jalapeño & Cheese with a pretzel bread crust. Again, pretzel crust!
