31 Days :: day 6, 7, 8, 9- monthly/weekly cleaning, meals & exercise, oh my!

Hey all!!
SO so sorry that I let the past few days slip by without a post!! DH has the long weekend off, and he's been working a lot of late nights the past few months, so I was taking advantage of having him home for once ;)
Anyhoo... onwards to FOUR (4) lists!! Gotta make up for lost time!
These four lists go together really well in my household because they make up my little "home management" wall :) Each list is in a simple photo frame, and I use a dry erase marker to write on it. I used to print these out each week/month but found I wanted to save paper and thus decided to create a reusable system!

Day 6:: Monthly Cleaning Chart
This chart is my monthly cleaning chart. Each day of the week is assigned a different room or item to be cleaned/maintained. Some rooms have an "F" or "H" before them, which stands for "Full" or "Half"- so either a full top to bottom room cleaning or a quick clean of the major messy areas of the room.

This list is a little outdated- it's from before our latest move- some things I clean more often now, but it's all about what works for you! We don't have kids or pets yet, so things don't tend to get quite as dirty as quickly right now. And no cleaning Sundays since that's a day of rest :)

Day 7:: Daily Chore Tracker
Here's the next list in the series... It's my daily chore chart... this one is slightly outdated since it's from before we moved, but my current one merely has a few items switched to different days. It's all about what works for you! For the "cleaning" each day, I refer to the above list to see what rooms need to be cleaned for the day. Everything that's above the dashed line is stuff that I do everyday, while things below the line change daily. I also leave a few extra blank slots for chores that pop up throughout the week.

Day 8:: Weekly Meal List
And the next list is my weekly meal list... it's a combination meal planner and nutrition tracker really... The top portion is a meal planner- dinners get filled in at the beginning of the week, and I fill in the rest throughout the week as I go.

Being vegetarian and gluten-free, I have to make sure I stay on top of my nutrition, so the bottom half of this list is a nutrition tracker- I "x" off a triangle when I have a serving of the designated food group. It's a good visual reminder for me if I'm lacking in a certain food group!

With the printable blank version {found below}, you could also use the bottom portion as a shopping list! :)

Day 9:: Exercise Tracker
And here's the final list for today's combined post! It's a pretty simple one... just a blank calendar- but this is where I keep track of what days I've been exercising! I simply write in a brief description of what I did. Mostly it's a visual reminder of whether I've been keeping on top of staying in shape ;)

These are great...I'll be using at least a few of these, and looking forward to what you have in mind for the rest of 31 days!!
