I made three goals this year, one of which was to write monthly goals.
My class goes all year, along with my journal daily — so I left the monthly goals written on the blog because it always keeps me more accountable. I need it! I fall off that wagon often!
I also just love reading other bloggers goal lists every month! Well, I just really love reading daily updates from a few different bloggers. Gosh they are just my people. If most of them were not spread across the world – we would totally be bffs offline. Hopefully 😬
—yes— I just realized today is Thursday and we actually have to be places today, a special guest flying in for my birthday ( hi mom! ), and I lived on the couch doing nothing all week.
Well my kiddo is a teething little stage 9 clinger, so that had major things to do with our change from one pjs to another every day.
I need to have a plan. Block off and prioritize (with flexibility for toddler life) and seriously manage my time better.
I always wonder how moms with 4 kids do 1000% more than I do as far as involvement workouts activities and so much more. I just try to shave off an oz of their super powers, to seem like a contributing member to the neighborhood…
My lack of plans and schedule generally lead to “So how many hours have I been watching this?” Oops
I know we need to start going back to swim 2x a week because early morning swims always seemed to start the day off with productivity and accomplishments. After chatting with a friend I think we narrowed down our lack of motivation to lack of schedule. Those moms with more kids than us HAVE to do things, therefore they do. We are the lazy moms of 1 and 2, and we are soaking up our time on the couch during play dates.
I lost 11.2 lbs last month purely by eating healthy alone. #whole30
If I would have added weekly workouts? Ahh! What would have happened then!!
I ran twice. It hurt. And it’s been “too cold” ever since because I didn’t like seeing little guys eyes drop water as we ran as a family with him in the stroller. So much wind!
I already dusted off the dvds yesterday and put out a workout outfit that isn’t pjs. I would like to realistically say 2 weight training and 3 cardio days- but going to aim small here and just start with 2 days of whatever I can get a week. Just for this month. Last month I set small goals and blew them out of the water so here is hoping this works again.
Now people say scale doesn’t matter- but for me it does! Until I am in a more healthy weight range I will focus on the scale. It’s why I rejoined DietBets! Most of my weight from pregnancy rapidly fell off in the first month and finished off every single point by month 3. Yeah I was one of the lucky breastfeeding mamas where the weight literally fell off while I ate whatever whenever.
That whatever whenever = a fun little game of gain/lose/repeat until this past fall when we started #whole30.
A friendly girl on Instagram who first complemented my weight loss then tried to tell me she needed to set me up with a program of hers tailored for my life because you need to work out. Sorry “don’t tell me what I need Travis”. In case you are wondering I watch Zootopia too much. I likely could verbatim do the movie!
- Celebrate my last year in my 20’s !!!!
I plan on living up this month, heck this year! Not because I’m afraid or sad of turning thirty- but it’s a good year to focus and go try things I’ve been holding back on.
I have been consumed with infertility struggles and now the fun of raising a toddler over the last few years. I would give and do EVERYTHING for that kiddo, and happily self-sacrifice anything- I just need to make sure I keep fitting in little bits of me time as I can.
I also want to try to get in the best shape I can be- I am down 87 pounds since giving birth – 31 pounds LESS than I was before getting pregnant!
This birthday month/last year in my 20s isn’t really a measurable goal, its more keep fun and inspiration on the forefront!
Focus should be my word for the year because that is all I feel myself trying to do with each goal, and idea in mind. Happy and Healthy <3
