spoonful of time savers and funny habits

hey guys!

it’s thursday and that means it is one day closer to friday! woot! this week has seriously flown by and thank goodness because it was a busy one! a have a quick post for you today since i’ve got to run to work and pack!

first things first, check out this workout we did today at crossfit!

seriously killer.  i sometimes don’t know how my body gets through these. geez! but i am very proud that i got through it!

secondly, i need an extra day of the week because i can’t seem find time to fit everything in! does anyone else feel that way?? goodness i need a day between saturday and sunday because 7 days a week isn’t enough! i am all about every inch a time and every time saver tip out there.  also i have totally failed at commenting on some of my favorite blogs! i promise i am reading so please forgive me fellow bloggers!

so here are a few time saving tips that i have found super helpful in keeping me sane…

  • rotisserie chicken.  so random but the best this week.  i brought it home, cut off all the skin, cut it off the bone (anything on the bone always makes me wanna hurl), and put it in a tuberware to store in the fridge.  so now i have an entire tuberware full of good chicken that literally took me 5 min? amazing.  made it super easy this morning to throw it in a salad for lunch! i even used it to make chicken enchiladas the other night! thank you smiths:)
  • healthy prepared foods.  thankfully i live close to a good earth grocery store and they always have a few freshly prepared meal items.  i just bought a healthy chicken honey cranberry salad and you betta believe that will be in salads and wraps all week! thank you good earth! so worth the $ because other wise i would probably be eating out:)
  • vitamins on the counter. sounds silly and carson hates it but if i have my vitamins ready to go it’s easy to gulp them down and i never forget when they are staring me in the face in the morning!
  • evening shower.  always hated going to bed with wet hair but i would so much rather sleep than shower at 7 am.  late showers is a great way for me to de stress in the evening. (i probably waste too much water just standing in there but it’s just so good)
  • shaving when needed.  who has time to shave their legs all the time? i don’t! so i conveniently wear jeans most of the week and it’s winter! who is really wearing shorts anyway?
  • wash it as soon as you use it.  carson and i don’t have a dishwasher.  awesome huh? i absolutley hate handwashing the dishes when they pile up.  this is one i need to be better about but cleaning it right after i use it saves me SO MUCH TIME later on! who knew? 🙂
  • outfit plans.  sounds like i am in the seventh grade but i probably change 7 times and if i can just get that out of the way in the evening, that means more sleep! woot! and speaking of outfits…. i really want this one…


isn’t she fabulous? i’ll take her hair, shoes, and sweater! after sharing my time saving tips you all probably think i am a little weird but im ok with that if it is saving me time!

so what are some of your time saving tips?

    Shower in the evening, making extra food at dinner so I can eat it for lunch, think of what I’m going to wear the next day 🙂

    I know how busy feels! I’m always trying to save time so this post is great! I have also failed miserably at commenting on blogs recently. At my old job, I had a ton of down time and would honestly read blogs and be on the internet most of the day…but now at my new job, it’s always go go go and I rarely have time to get online! Then, most nights, I get home late and can’t find time to read my regulars! An extra day of the week would be great!

    Busy yes! And your WOD does look killer.

    I think buying healthy convenience foods like prepackaged washed veggies and salads are a big help – or wash and cut up some and bag them yourself when you get home from shopping. I also like to hard boil or bake a dozen eggs to have on hand for the week for quick salads or snacks.

    Your tip of clean it after you use it is a great one. I always clean as I go in the kitchen too – makes keeping tidy so much easier.

    Great tips!

      I don’t know why I have never thought to boil a dozen eggs! So easy and so helpful! Thanks!!

    Ooh Great post! I agree on so many of these, especially doing things in the evening rather than morning. I spend too long choosing my outfit, and this past week I worked out at night so showered at night, and I really enjoyed the extra time in the morning.
