I spent the past two weeks reflecting and getting my mindset right. One thing hit me pretty hard the other day: I have a daughter.
Obviously I want to set a good example for my boys as well, but I was looking at my sweet baby girl and I thought: I need to be the best me for you. I need to set a good example of a woman that loves and takes care of herself. WHOA. Big deal.
OK, back to square one.
What I've realized is that I've let my habits slip. From the habit of working out to the habit of meal planning. From making a to-do list to cleaning the kitchen (and with our homeschool year starting September 3rd that's no bueno). Not only were bad habits sneaking in, but good habits were slipping out. It began towards the end of my pregnancy and got progressively worse.
I've also realized that I've set NO goals this year. None. So not like me.
Time to focus on re-building good habits and setting some goals!
A few days ago I ran across Chalene Johnson's book PUSH. I got it back when it first came out and quickly read through it. I love the focus on goal setting and building habits. Now seems like the perfect time to pick it back up and go through and do the journal work!
There's also an online 30-Day Challenge that I'll be doing at the same time (they can go hand in hand). The online challenge doesn't have to be about health and fitness. It can be about work or your personal life, anything you want to improve on.
Want to join me on either? Comment below if you're in! I'll be using the #30dayPUSH hashtag on twitter or instagram. Today is my Day 1.
Something that really struck me from Day 1 was the question: What do you want to be remembered for? Wow. Hmmm.
What do YOU want to be remembered for?
