No Excuse November Day 12: Sharing Saturday & Sunday!

Weekends are made for sharing!

I’m just stopping by to share my tracker and what I’ve been up to today!

Week 2 is going well!

So far, I am keeping up with my habits. Yay! Every time I check one off, I know I am one step closer to my goals!

Today started out very slow motion. Breakfast, reading, a load of laundry, reading, lunch, reading, LOL, then we went to the movies!! We saw Wakanda Forver. Now I’m home about to watch a Hallmark movie 📽 🎄😌!

How did your week go? Are you working on any habits or goals? How did your Saturday go? Anything exciting going on this weekend?

Be Peaceful,

No Excuse November Day 8: Tasty Tuesday

Welcome to Tasty Tueday! This week, it was hard to pick a favorite tasty dish because I had a few!

The winner was the Blue Apron dish One-Pot Tomato & Parmesan Risotto with Crispy Prosciutto. I had never cooked Risotto before, and my husband wasn’t sure he had ever eaten it, so this was a first for us both!

What did you have that was tasty this week?

Blogtober Day 30: Step it up sunday

Simple steps we can take while preparing for the week to take it to the next level………

My weekend was pretty busy, so my time to prep for the week was limited. I knew I really had to utilize my time wisely. Sunday morning, I made waffles for breakfast. I decided to double the recipe, so I would have a couple extra for later in the week. Since I cook breakfast every morning, I knew this would save me some time during the week, therefore making my mornings smoother.

For waffles and pancakes, I like to use Millville Protein with Oats mix from Aldi’s. I like to add egg whites (1/3 cup per batch) to add more protein and make them a little fluffier. Sometimes, I add chopped peacans and chocolate chips (bake believe or lily’s brand).

What was something you did last weekend to prepare for the workweek?

Coming Soon……….. No Excuse November

I can’t believe Blogtober is almost over, only one week left! When I decided to participate in Blogtober, I was nervous about keeping up with it. It seemed fun and exciting to make a new post every day, but it also seemed like it might be too much for me. I learned quickly that I could do it as long as I didn’t allow myself to make excuses not to.

Blogtober taught me that I could commit to something as long as I broke it down into small pieces, planned, scheduled time to work on it, and allowed myself No Excuses! This gave me the idea for No Excuse November.

During No Excuse November, I will continue some of my current daily posts, but I will also add some goals and the steps I will take to achieve. One of my goals is to develop better routines and escpecelly for wake up and bedtime. I will provide more detail as we approach November, but here is a sneak peek…….an earlier wake-up time is in my future

I would love to hear your gaols and small steps you can make to achieve them, and please be sure to comment with your favorite daily theme.

Blogtober Day 23: Step It Up Sunday

Simple steps we can take while preparing for the week to take it to the next level……..

I recently got an amazing deal to try Blue Apron ($119 off the first 5 boxes plus a $200 gift card that would come before the 3rd box ships). I have always wanted to try Blue Apron, but the price kept me away. This special made it resonable and kept us from eating out because we had special meals to look forward to.

These are the meals we got in our first box; the smaller picture shows what they actually looked like once I prepared them.

I will let you know my favorite on Tasty Tuesday. All three meals really leveled up our week!

Have you ever tried a meal delivery service? If so, which one? Do you feel it helped level up your week?

Blogtober Day 19: Wellness Wednesday

During the month of October, we are focusing on two deminsions of wellness each wednesday. Last week, we focused on the physical and social deminsions. This week will be occupational and spiritual.

Occupational: personal satisfaction in your job/career.

Spiritual: the search for purpose and meaning in life, knowing which resources to use to cope with everyday life, values, and beliefs

For me occupationally I think having work life balance helps me to be a better employee and more satisfied with my job. I think prayer, self reflection, and spending time in nature really help my spiritual wellness.

What about you, what are some things that have, do, or will help you achieve occupational and spiritual wellness?

Be Peaceful,

~Nettie
