making a list... checking it twice



Not sure why, but I am, and always have been a list maker.  I have never been able to keep track of things in my head, and always feel better once they are written down for me to see.  

LISTS for:

homework
things to do
jobs to be done each day of the week... and month
menus
goals
exercise
christmas gifts
home repairs
grocery lists
*you name it, I've probably put it on a list

With the wonderful technology provided by the internet, it makes my little habit much easier.

For cleaning house I love FLYLADY, which gives me a list of things to do each day.

For running and keeping track of miles, my two favorites are REAL RUNNERS and DAILY MILE.

For keeping track of food and water intake, and calories burned (and several other great resources), MY PLATE is what I use. 

If it is genetic, I have my parents both to thank (my mother is the queen of lists).  
If it is taught... once again, I thank my parents (but worry where the teaching gap is between me and my eldest, who can't make a list to save her life.  Literally)

I have used the Daily Plate as well, but didn't know it was connected to the Livestrong site. Very cool!

Thanks for the great sites! I'm not too good at list, but I think I'm going to really like these sites!

I love lists too, both writing them and crossing things off. I'll have to try some of your suggestions. Thanks!
