January Is Here…Again.

January is here…again and you are going to need to dip deep to plan for success this year. Crazy, isn’t it? It seems like it was just January 2016. Time flies and I have no clue where it went since I think everyone can agree that it really wasn’t a fantastic one. I can’t say that it was bad, as I know I had some really great time with my husband, kiddos, and friends. I just know that there were some nagging things that hung around and were more of like an annoyance when they decided to pop up. I know it happens and I know it will probably happen again this year. The thing that will change about it, is that I am going to bless it and release it. My dear friend Dana told me that phrase and I really am going to embrace it!

I am taking today to really seek my goals at the core. We all have nice general ideas of what we want…I want to lose 10 pounds….I want to eat better…I want to read more….and those are all great things! I believe when we want to make these things a success, we really need to look at them and find out what it will really take to make them happen and be successful! You need to dig deep. What exercises, days, and time are you going to do such activity? What are you going to cut out and add to you diet? Do you h ave recipes? What books are you going to read? I really think you need to dig deeper than just creating an idea of what you want.

I know for me today will involve a pencil, my planner, and the internet helping me make sure I am fully prepared to take off with a huge possibility of success. I want to really put my best foot forward. Today, my planning day, took a huge step by getting up and getting my husband prepared for work and showering. I think that when you get up and put yourself together you are going to be more successful than if you sit around in PJ’s. Not saying I don’t love hanging out in my PJ’s, I just know that I can start my day off with action.

What are your goals/resolutions/changes, that you want to make this year?   I have a few and I will be revealing them as I go this year. I can’t wait to share this journey with you!

September 2015

ASeptember (1)nother month ticks away at the year 2015. I am pretty happy as this month has already brought cooler weather (well, maybe it did start before today), and I am happy to be able to put on my long sleeves and jeans and actually look like I still belong. These are my favorites things to wear, but when I would wear jeans prior to now, my  husband would give me a look that would imply I was insane. For wearing jeans that is. All other times I can’t really say 😉

I am happy too as this means that the school year has started and we are getting into a regular routine. I missed this. The summer was fun, crazy, and trying at times. I loved it, but I am glad to be back to a routine that allows for quiet, and consistency.  I am a mess when I don’t have that. I myself am still trying to establish my routine again – but I am closer than I was two weeks ago!.

September Goal Call-With a new month also brings new goals. I love to make goals. I am not the best at sticking to them always, but I do love to make them. This month I am pushing to meet my goals for sure!  I also want to encourage you to meet your goals! Setting and then meeting goals is a huge sense of accomplishment I remember feeling when I worked out of the home. I don’t like I have that same sense of accomplishment as I am not with my team anymore. I want to replace that with a feeling of getting something done, and this month I challenge you to do the same!

I have printed off and marked in my planner my running goals for this month. Marked days that I will run certain distances. I am making it a priority to run. I may have to change some things up next week after talking to my hubby a little about it – I hate changing things from the way they are provided to me (even if I just found it on the internet) because I feel like I am not doing what I should. I do understand reasons why I should move some things around – we will see how this goes.

I got a couple books from the library so I have that part taken care of and ready to be met!

I am hopeful to get new team members for my Younique team as it is a perfect time to join this business with their biggest launch yet of new and amazing products!

I would love to acquire new clients this month – even if they are just for blogging working, helping those create their own blogs, or social media strategies – a client is a client in my book, no matter how big or small!.

What are your goals this month-What about you though? What are your goals for this month? Have you even thought about it? You realize, that it doesn’t matter what your goal looks like to someone else’s – they are yours and that is all that matters! So start writing them down and keeping them where you can see them. You can do this and that is what counts!

Morning Schedule Change

10583835_10152686586224312_6473272409793730919_n Abby started school yesterday and she has decided to take morning showers now. Morning schedule change had to happen. I knew the time would come, but I wasn’t ready for it to happen in second grade to be honest.  She is wanting to take a shower everyday – which I am exited about since she is a sweaty kid. The problem is she wants to take them in the morning – as do I.

Abby has no time concept so I have to be able to keep her on track while in the shower. I have to keep her to singing only one song instead of the soundtrack to Frozen.  She would if I let her.  Yes, she really sings in the shower.  This is where my issue is. I used to wake her up at 6 am, go take my shower, and then we would all be ready about the same time to leave.  Now, I will have to get up earlier, and I have been, but it still isn’t timed just right.

Here is the funny thing. Last summer I would get up around 3:45 am and go meet friends at 4:15 am to go run everyday.  Before that I would get up with Nick and make his coffee, breakfast, clean the house, do dishes, and laundry. Why is it so hard for me to get back into that routine? I like early mornings and can actually get a ton in the mornings.  Am I getting more lazy with age?

I think that this is the boost I needed to get my butt back in the morning routine –  but I wasn’t expecting it to be honest. I really didn’t think this would happen so soon. Do I want this? Yes! Am I ready for this? No!

I guess it is time to get out the scheduler and get everyone on task for the school year ahead!

10570394_10152687696559312_7875143379956991333_nI decided that with the school year starting it is as good as any of a time to get back into the habit of things – I mean I have to start a new schedule, why not just get it all going so I have one transition instead of 20? I like to journal – so I started back on my peak, pit, praise, prayer writing. It allows me to realize that there were some great parts to my day, low points, and then things that I am going to pray for. I try to keep it simple and to the point, but it is therapeutic for me as well. I like the idea of writing since I kinda like to stay silent when I am settling in for the night. Is there anything that you do religiously?

I also was able to catch my oldest two in a sweet moment. I took a picture before it stopped.
