Oh Time managment and other such musings....

Ok so here we go again! A list of what I want to improve about my self.
Ready? Here we go...

So why the sudden obsession? Well I have joined My Peak Challenge. Http://  And one of my personal challenges is to get my life organized in all aspects. This one awesome, amazing planner is the best. I am able to track my day, my new healthy recipes, and my exercise and food.  I am also looking at the home planner expansion to help me with another one of my challenges, to get this house back in order!! I mean y'all this house is a mess!

So what do I love so much about this planner?
