Sorry for not posting last night — after a jam-packed weekend of blogging and a late flight, I just wanted to come home and crash!
I tried to keep my eating as healthy as possible at the airport (which is sometimes hard when you’re a vegetarian — I ended up getting Starbucks oatmeal with cashews and a banana at 8 PM!), munched on some Trader Joe snacks, drank a lot of water, and relaxed. It felt great!
I’m back at home and the place looks SO clean! Thank you, Husband!
I was really excited to have a home-cooked breakfast. After a week of traveling, it feels good to cook my own food and get back to normal living!
This toasted quinoa yogurt bowl was great. I got the idea from the Body + Soul magazine, which was handed out at the Summit.
This morning, I rinsed 1/4 cup of quinoa and patted it dry. Then, I mixed in 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of water, and 1 tablespoon of ground flax. After spreading it out on a baking sheet, I toasted the quinoa for 13 minutes at 375.
I added the cooled toasted quinoa to a bowl of banana, blueberry, and vanilla Stonyfield yogurt.
Summit Takeaway: Organization Week
Of all the things I learned at the Summit, the one thing I really took away from the experience was the power of ORGANIZATION!
I met so many lovely and intelligent ladies at the Summit who were GREAT at keeping their lives organized (and thus sane!). You guys know that I could use more organization (and saneness), so I am declaring this week Organization Week.
This is how I currently stay organized:
(Obviously, this was Summit week!)
I really like my paper datebook and don’t plan to change that aspect of my life, but there are several other areas I’d like to improve in. Since I only have to work at 1 job this week, I’m going to tackle one area everyday:
Sunday: Figure out how to use G-mail to my advantage.
- Monday: Unpack and, in the process, organize closet and throw away/donate old clothing.
- Tuesday: Research meal planning and whether it will work for us.
- Wednesday: Organize utility closet. It’s a disaster and always stresses me out.
- Thursday: Finally finish preparing marathon training plan.
- Friday: Make a list of all my friends’ and family members’ birthdays. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to do this!
- Saturday – Sunday: Look for ways to re-vamp Healthy Tipping Point and make it a better blog.
I think this week will be a fun learning experience! What are your tips for staying organized?
