I had a productive day Tuesday.

Here’s what I tackled and accomplished:

Went to the post office to mail my taxes.   They are done.   And I got a small refund.

Did laundry and changed the sheets on my bed.  I hate changing sheets because I am a stickler for good, tight, hospital corners on my bed and it takes time to get them just right. But it’s one of those tasks that just has to get done frequently.  Stacked Washer and Dryer

Went grocery shopping for some produce staples.

Bag of grapesBag of lettuceChopped lettuce on cutting board with knifeAnd yes, I cleaned my own lettuce again rather than buying bagged.   It saves me money and is fast.  Under 3 minutes or I wouldn’t bother.

I bottled a fresh batch of homemade kombucha.

And I sampled a glass.  Perfect.

I went to paid work.  I had a ridiculously long day.

I ate a salad with Orange Spice Vinaigrette dressing which is a quick dressing to make with the juice of an orange, some oil, and agave/maple if desired.

Plus I added Sesame Ginger Maple Tofu

And for Dessert, I made some Dark Chocolate Fudge Balls (No-Bake, Vegan, GF)

From my previous post, it was fun to hear what has made you look on the bright side of things lately.

And I am glad that most of you seem to be optimistic, glass half full types.  Not every single day is a peppy rah-rah kind of day, but our outlook on life has so much to do with how we in turn feel.  I could go on and on about this.  My undergraduate and graduate work was in psychology, so I’ll just stop now so I am not writing a dissertation.  Oh wait, that’s Katie’s job right now. Major props to anyone who’s had to write one of those!


1. Anyone nursing a hangover or have any Going out on Fat Tuesday stories you’re dying to share?

I worked, so no, I can’t help you with any hilarious shenanigans.  See this post for some, though.

2. As I mentioned, I changed the sheets on my bed.  How often do you change yours?

I aim for at least once a week, but probably about every 5-6 days.  I sleep so much better with clean sheets on.  Sounds crazy, but true.

3. What did you do that was productive yesterday or today?  Or this week?

I also worked out.  My usual 20 minutes of cardio + 20 minutes of at-home lifting/yoga/core moves.

It’s all about keeping things streamlined.  I don’t live in the gym, or have time, energy, or the desire to.  Getting my workouts in and done. Now, that’s my idea of being productive.
