Summer of 17 … Isn’t it crazy that its 2017 summer ?? Or is it just me !? Like I remember summer of 2000 little alone 17 lol Wow im sounding old .hahha
So plans for 2017 summer … Shoot , shoot and more photo-shoots. Throw in training for two grand fondo cycling races, 140 km which is 86 miles to ride,a belly dance competition end of September, Olympia Yes with team Magnum and a girls bestie get away weekend. Yes its going to be a busy one! That’s ok better than sitting on my butt 🙂
Now I get asked a lot how do I have the time or the energy to do this ? What are my secrets … Well ill tell you… Planning each day and week in advance. Yup sorry I don’t have some magical thing I do differently, its really just setting goals and time lines for oneself.
The big thing is not to overdue them either. I have a day planner I carry with me, I know that’s old school but hey it works for me! I start out each day with the tasks I want to achieve and go from there. If I don’t get something done that day I simply move it to he next or find a better day to do so. On the flip side If I get everything done then I don’t ADD more to the day this will only make me stressed out and the likeliness it wont be done properly .
I like to roughly get at least 4-6 different tasks done per day. So give you and example today I had to perform (bellydance) for an old folks home, clean the house, post my latest recipe (calculate breakdown, make how to do make the recipe & photos )this all takes time, train back and abs , write this blog and get a hour cycle in…oh and answer emails, submit to mags the list goes on and on if I let it ….
So I woke up at 7:30 grabbed my java checked emails and submitted. Headed to the gym busted out an 45 min session, came home got ready and headed to perform, back home to write and upload recipes then after this im going to cycle and vacuum the house when im done… but that task might be put to tomorrow cause that’s the least fun lol
Not the most exciting day but I managed to set out what I needed to accomplish. Now one big thing that can say that will distract you from getting things done… social media. I love it and im thankful for it but if you don’t watch it , this is a big time sucker. I know your reading a blog online right now which is mine, so thank you but after your done just take a look at your day and see how much of it is wasted on dumb things. When I realized how many better things I could be doing than on my phone, I got heeps more done. Even SM I set a timer for sometimes I give my self a certain amount of time on it then I put my phone or laptop away and out of site. Distractions are the worst for getting off track, so stick to a daily, plan don’t overwhelm and go hustle!
Oh one more tip just like the “daily tasks” go download the app “Lose it ” I love this app because I can track my food and workouts to help me keep my focus with what’s going in my body and how many cals im burning up 🙂
Hugs my friends xoxo
