ONE OF THOSE DAYS…

I am not sure what happened today. I woke up and everything was fine. For some odd reason everything on my to-do list was a big pain in the ass. Simple projects like installing java script on my site. I just could not get it done correctly. Writing this blog post earlier today. It was just an impossible task!

My brain was filled with technicalities so I honestly couldn’t write or create. I had so many design projects on the books today that I just could not complete. So many pitches that had to be done. And the list goes on. Needless to say I definitely had a strange morning.

Has this ever happened to you? OMG! Did I have a case of the Mondays…

After getting some advice from a few of my friends I decided to turn my computer off and get outside to work out. I did two miles and feel so much better!

Once I got home I showered, did a face and hair mask and painted my toes. I am even going to attempt my nails after I post this. I know…living on the edge.

Right now I’m eating some cereal, drinking a glass of wine and blasting my Broadway music. Not sure of the food combo and why I was craving it but I must say I am in such a better mood right now then I was earlier. I forgot to mention I am craving bacon like crazy! What does that even mean?

I’ll be honest with you. I put a large amount of pressure on myself to get a lot done in a timely manner. However, when I walk away (go for a workout) I realize that everything can wait. I have to focus on myself first so that I am able to give 150%.

That is the recap of what I did this afternoon and I am so proud of myself that I did get outside. Especially for some Vitamin D. My old self would have kept going and be totally burnt out in the morning and have to do it all over again. And without a workout.

So now that I am back to myself I want to share something so incredible with you! Something that I have always been extremely passionate about. Something that always puts a smile on my face. That my friends is cooking. I love creating amazing meals from scratch and being able to entertain.

Fun Fact: I have held positions on motor yachts and in restaurants cooking! I bet you didn’t know that?

Here is my super exciting news…

I started a brand new Facebook group called the KK Cafe. 

THE KK CAFE IS A PLACE TO SHARE HEALTHY EATING HABITS, HEALTH ARTICLES AND OF COURSE YOUR FAVORITE RECIPES!

Something else I have always wanted to have was a LIVE cooking show! So that is happening too! That’s right I’ll be cooking live!

You’re probably curious how that name came about. It’s simple. My friends call me KK and my kitchen the KK Cafe as I am probably the most high maintance iced coffee drinker, cappuccino maker ever! And that is really how it started. If you follow me on Instagram you can also find me @kkinvegas!

If you are into meeting a fun group of people, sharing recipes and a good laugh then I would absolutely love to have you in the KK Cafe! And if you know someone else who you think would love it please let them know. The more the merrier right?

That’s all I have for you tonight.

Talk soon,

HOW TO TACKLE TEDIOUS TASKS!

Hi There! Happy Monday!

Today I want to give you a few pointers on how to tackle your tideous tasks on your to-do list!

I want to start off by saying that these tasks that I am speaking of are most likely the ones you keep pushing to your to-do list for the following day! You know what I’m talking about…

Stop doing that! I’m not going to lie I caught myself doing it last week so since then I have been knocking them out one by one.

Here are a few tips for getting these annoying little projects done fast and efficiently! By annoying I mean updating your Mailchimp subscriber pop-ups, all of your podcast url’s and graphics, new graphics and stories for your new Instagram Spotlights, following up with three different support teams for your podcast, researching effective new hashtags etc. Oh wait! Those are mine! LOL

Well now you get the point…

I’m happy to report as of right now all of those projects are complete! Chickety check!!! Feel so good…

TIPS FOR TACKLING YOUR TEDIOUS TO-DO LIST

  1. Music. You must have some. Whatever you are into just put it on and turn it up nice and loud!
  2. Highlighting System. Some like this, some don’t. I love it! I use a different highlighter for each project, meeting, clients, doctor appointment etc. I have my own little system set up and you should do the same. However you prefer to cross things off your list. Just make sure it is happening.
  3. Hold yourself accountable! I sometimes put my to-do list on my Instagram Stories. This way I am able to post everything checked off right there again at the end of the day! Accountability people! It works!
  4. Schedule your creative and operational projects on different days. Example: It is very hard for my brain to switch from design mode to crunching numbers and analytic mode. Therefore, I try my hardest to schedule everything on opposite days so I don’t have issues throughout the week.
  5. Make a “celebration” list for the end of the week. I’ve been doing this for a while and it works! It puts a smile on my face and gives me that extra reassurance that I am on track and where I want to be!
  6. Shit happens! We all know that we cannot have a perfect work day every dam day! So celebrate the small stuff and keep on doing you! Self-Care is number one in my book. And it should be in yours. Trust me on this. You will be a hell of a lot more productive when you have a clear head and vision.

That’s all for tonight! Let me know how you tackle your lists in the comments below. Sharing is Caring.
