How I Plan To Be Consistent

Consistency... it can be such an ugly word sometimes! And for me it's been a struggle... in a lot and I mean a lot of areas this year...  And I thought maybe once school started it would get easier? You know, having a routine... but it's been the opposite. I feel like I've been squeaking by to keep my head above water.

So, I've created a plan of action. Yep. You know, if you write it down and put it in a calendar with pretty stickers and all, it's bound to happen right? ;)
A girl can dream, and I'm going to give it a try. Even if that means modifying the plan as needed.

I've set up a writing/blogging schedule. I plan to write twice a week. One thing about blogging is there seems to be a lot of self promoting. It comes with the territory. The reality is that I don't have the time to promote myself. So I'm going to write, because it's something that I enjoy. And this little bloggy of mine is something that I take pride in.. even if the only person reading it is my Mom. It's something that I started many years ago when I got married. It's evolved over time, and I imagine that it will continue evolving just like me.

For the next two weeks, I've committed to the Gixo Fitcamp. Committing to working out 4 days a week will hopefully help me be consistent. And I have a team of Gixo Teammates who are helping me to stay accountable.

And last but not least, and possibly the hardest area of all, I'm working on fueling my body. (Notice I didn't say dieting, or losing weight or whatever term you'd like to use). Instead, I'm working on being consistent with being conscious of what I'm putting in my body.

So there you have it. It seems so simple doesn't it? The reality is... it's not. I know this. But I also know to reach a goal, you truly have to work for it.

Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends. Thank you for helping me follow my dream.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
