Beginner BabySteps: Day 27

BabyStep: Day 27 

Today, think about what you are fixing for dinner before 6 p.m. rolls around. You can do it as part of your before-bed routine for tomorrow or as part of your morning routine for today. Write this in your Control Journal.

Lots of stress is relieved by just knowing what’s for dinner. This is one of the reason we practice menu planning in the month of November.  We also have a section on menu planning in our Control Journal. If you are having trouble menu planning check out our website. We have our own Dinner Diva to help us. Check out this section of our Control Journal.   

Morning Routine

  • Get up and make your bed
  • get dressed to lace-up shoes, hair, face
  • Swish and Swipe your bathroom
  • Recognize negative voices and change them
  • Reboot your laundry
  • What’s for dinner?
  • Put out your Hot Spots for two minutes
  • Five-minute Room Rescue (pick a room). Set your timer and go!
  • Spend 15 Minutes decluttering each day. You can’t organize clutter!
  • Look at your Control Journal. Your Post-It Notes remind you
  • Read Your FlyLady Emails as a reward for doing your morning routine.

Afternoon Routine

  • Eat lunch and drink your water
  • Start Dinner remember the side dishes

Before-Bed Routine

  • Keep your sink shining
  • Lay out your clothes for tomorrow
  • Put in a load of laundry
  • Check calendar for tomorrow’s dinner! Pull out of freezer.
  • Put out your Hot Spot.
  • Look at your Control Journal check list. 
  • Time for bed; consider yourself tucked in!

FlyLady Tip: Just knowing what is for dinner relieves the guilt of ordering pizza again. This will save you a lot of money too. Use your slow cooker to help you put dinner on the table.     With a little planning on Wednesday (Anti-Procrastination Day); we will have menus and a grocery list for next week. Then you just have to get the groceries in the house. Our calendar has lots of room for your menus and lines to write on! We love the lines.

FlyBabies should never cook on high!  ~FlyLady
