Hey peeps!!!! Man oh man I not even going to get into how much I've missed typing my thoughts to you fine folks. Just know that our lack conversation (even if largely one-sided) has been noticed. I can tell you that even Mr. Uncluttered has been in my ear to return to my little chats with you. So here I am!
What a finer way to return than with a post about organizing for the new year. I've been getting emails asking it I have a calendar for 2014. Here is my 2014 monthly calendar.
Seeing how 2014 is right around the corner now is the time to get the planners prepped for the new year and I have a few printables to keep you organized too. Such as my 2014 weekly calendar, which I am still tweaking. I found that I had to create one because I am looking for certain elements such as daily tasks, menu tracking, and shopping lists to be one the same page so I don't have to look in multiple places if I don't want to. Hopefully by mid next week I'll be ready to share with you.
I also have some brand new printables that I will be sharing with you. One is a menu planning printable. I'm really excited about this one... I'm devising one that tries to take into consideration planning meals for a family that includes member(s) with dietary restrictions. For instance in my house, I'm a vegan and the mister is definitely NOT a vegan, yet I do all the cooking. I had yet to find a menu planner that worked for us. So whether its a medically required or self-imposed restriction I'm hoping this one will work for you too.
Now briefly what been going on with me... Lots have been going on in my world... remember the whole Rheumatoid Arthritis thing. Well, during my quiet time I was trying to gain the upper hand on the symptoms my body was displaying. How did I do that? After much research, back in April 2013 I became a raw vegan. It was my hope that ingesting nothing but whole organic foods would allow my body to detox and repair itself. I can tell you it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only do I feel amazing but I shed 45 lbs. I say shed because it literally melted off in a matter of 4.5 months without working out. Not that I'm advocating laziness, but man, other than walking the dog I didn't break a sweat. Of course now I work out... sort of.
I originally thought I was going to blog about the entire process... uh about that... it didn't happen. My journey is far from over but I have learned a lot and I did track the entire journey thus far in a notebook and am willing to share my story with any interested.
Well I'm off to finish some printables... till next time...
