I like to call them goals instead of resolutions. I have a better chance of actually accomplishing goals. So are you ready?
Step 1-Pick your goals. I like to stick with two. They tend to be pretty broad goals. I also don’t want to overwhelm myself and then never start.
Goal 1-Loose weight-isn’t that everyone’s goal? No but seriously I come from a long line of chunky people with diabetes and well I just don’t want that. I also haven’t always been heavy. I’m an emotional eater. Top that with five years of active fertility treatments and you’re setting yourself up for disaster! Did you know that those hormone shots make your body think it’s pregnant. What do pregnant women have-a large appetite!!! Also while I only have one glorious baby I have been pregnant five times….you read that right. Hubs and I were joking the other day because I was nauseous. He said well are you pregnant? I responded=fat chance. Then it hit me out of all my friends-with the exception of one I’ve been pregnant more that all of them!!!!
So loose the chubby..but how…calorie tracking-journal and active living. You have to know the how to get to the goal. Plus I’d like my hip to stop popping-did pregnancy do that to anyone else?
Goal 2-Declutter, declutter. Have you been seeing all those clean your house one thing a week goal? I’m in love.
I have found that my toddler is a bit of a hoarder. Toys everywhere! Plus I use to be quite the shopper. I’m also an emotional shopper so when we couldn’t get pregnant I would shop. I am setting up the have I worn it in a year? Have I used it in a year? Rule!
I also want to not get to overwhelmed with the cleaning so only one cabinet/area a week. Let’s see how it goes!
I will be posting as I declutter! I’m starting with all the kitchen counter tops next week!!!
Step 2-Write down every week what you plan to do to accomplish your goals. For example in my planner I’ll write down three days a week where we go to the park or take a walk to increase our active lifestyle. I’ll also write down exactly which areas I will declutter. I have also set up donation tubs in the garage!
Step 3-Give yourself grace. Oh and mercy. We are just people. If God can give you grace and mercy can’t you give it to yourself as well? If you get off the wagon don’t stop-regroup and come back. You can do this!
What are your goals are you setting for yourself???
