Intentions for the Week:

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Another Funday Monday!

Hello friends! How’s it going today? This weekend started off with a bang and then chilllllled out! We had a nice family dinner with steaks & Manhattans in the city. Baseball Saturday with housework and movie night. We watched Castaway with Cooper. I worked around the house. Went for a walk. Fun family times.

Our bathrooms are clean. Donations have been dropped off.

Upstairs has been vacuumed.

Laundry was folded and put away while we watched a movie (multi-tasking champ!)

Meal prep is done!

This is what we are starting the week with in our fridge.

Here’s some MEAL PREP ACTION for you:

  • Mary

    – Get on top of my work e-mail
    – Get in three weight-based workouts
    – Bike to work each day
    – Moderate added sugar
    – Practice 25 minute distraction-free working

    • Tracy

      Good luck this week! Especially with the 25 minute distraction free working! YOU CAN DO IT!

  • Jillian Stanford

    Here’s how I keep on top of the laundry – I force myself to complete a load (wash – dry – fold – put away) before starting another one. Once the hamper is full I begin again. For some reason this really works for me. I am never overwhelmed by a mountain that needs to be folded. Maybe everyone does this?

  • Jamie

    Any tips on how to make peeling the eggs easier???

    • Tracy

      I usually do it under running water. Making them in an Instant Pot is really the best! The shells peel right off.

  • Denise

    I live in the Northeast and the last few days have been cold and raw……made the pasta fagioli soup for dinner tonight and it was a huge hit. I’m glad I doubled the recipe….plenty for lunch tomorrow. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

  • Nicole

    love these this week. Xxooo

  • Sarah

    Pasta Fagioli!! I grew up eating this soup. I hardly ever see anyone making it. My Dad made for us all the time growing up and my Nana for him when he was a kid. Such a wonderful comfort soup. I have my Dads last batch of pasta fagioli in the freezer. He made one more time before he passed and I froze some. I am thinking my new Intention for this week will be to eat that soup before its no good. I just have to get that little voice out of my head saying ‘but it’s his last batch’.
    I am definitely going to make your recipe next. Sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing.
