Feel Good Friday - The Flylady MR

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a Feel Good Friday blogpost about the Flylady BBR. You can read it here. Today it's the turn of the Flylady MR. What's MR, you ask? Morning Routine. A simple checklist to help you FLY through your day.

Mine looks like this:
  • Shower/coffee/dress to shoes/fix hair and makeup
  • Check the calendar, what's going on today?
  • Clear away the breakfast things, wipe down kitchen, start dishwasher
  • Schoolrun
  • Hang up washing/iron the dry stuff from previous day/put away
  • Empty dishwasher
  • Check what's for dinner
  • NEWO interval run with a friend, or 6 minute strength train
  • Post today's blogpost ;)
I'm normally finished by around 9.30am, leaving me lots of 'playtime'. Or, as the case is today, hopefully plenty of time to prepare for tonight's school Summer Party - one of the highlights of the kids social calender :)

In my pre-Flylady days, I would go full steam ahead with preparations for the party, be up half the night beforehand, forget to eat properly/drink enough water and generally run myself (and the house) ragged. Ha, those days are gone! Now I just stick to my routines like g-l-u-e and all the rest will - usually - fall into place. Today I'm baking my world-famous cold-risen bread (you can find my recipe here). Preparing crockpot lasagne (Krista's recipe is here). Chopping lots of veggie sticks. Packing our picnic basket with glasses, cutlery, plates, rubbish bag, serviettes, a purse (full of small coins for the kids to spend at the various stalls). And - perhaps the most important part - icing our entry for this year's Cake Competition. (And, yes, I baked the cake yesterday - forward planning saves the day!) The theme for our cake is all terribly hush-hush so (for once) my lips are sealed! Though I can tell you that it involves around two hours of painstaking work, copious amounts of neon coloured icing and therefore copious amounts of cleaning up...  ;)



So without further ado, I shall FLY off and get my MR finished and get this show on the road! ;)

Have a fantastic Feel-Good Friday! :)

I loved to read your Morning Routine, I was thinking about posting mine too.
You are so clever with your routines.
I would love to read your Before Bed routine too if you would like to share it. I get much inspiration to keep on flying reading blogs like yours. Thank you for sharing.

*sigh* Diane, now I want cake. LOL I haven't done my routines in a while. I used to have the list in front of me and just go go go. Now I do stuff but I have no idea if I did everything or what.

Keep writing, I love reading! :)

Oh! I bought new sandals (bronze gladiator) and thought of you!

Kim - thanks! :)

Helen - glad to share my BBR, I've infact already written a post about my BBR, there's a link at the top of this post

Elisa - thanks for the nice words (again!), sorry to make you want cake but glad about the sandals! ;D

Em - the cake was Lego blocks and chocolate Lego men, didn't win a prize this year but it *was* eaten up entirely! :)
