Tip- Jumping Back In!!!

Its funny how when I get to bed too late a couple nights in a row how it turns into a week later that I am behind on posting and now its more like 10 days!! ahhh!!!!

Life is crazy for us ALL–no doubt…. I need to figure out a way to stay on top of my daily posting habit despite when the craziness takes over. I decided instead of ‘catching up’….. that I would just jump right in where I am.  Earlier this week when I was thinking about how I need to catch up on a week’s worth of my daily’s…..the task just seemed daunting and I find myself putting it off all while the days keep ticking away and adding up.

I think this happens to us in ALL areas of our life at times.  We always feel like we are behind or we have to go back and catch up….when really we just need to jump in and start fresh where we are. If we keep waiting for that ‘perfect moment’ or ‘right time’, then we will never get to it and we will just stay discouraged.

I haven’t been on the computer much this last week cause with my hubby out of town and an extra little cutie staying with us for 10 days……I have really been trying to use this time to focus on my priority list and getting the more important things done around my home that I have put off for too long….I’ve been trying to create better habits of things again like; reading my scriptures and other good books first thing in the morning instead of jumping on the computer-I am really trying to get where I need to be again spiritiually and mentally for myself but also so I can help my kids with the trials they face, also making menus and trying to come up with more of a variety of healthier meals for my family again for our sit down dinners, trying to stay on top of my housework and daily chores which seem never ending!!, organizing little areas here and there as I get ‘froggy’……and then all the usual drama and stuff that comes up when I’m a single mom. 😉  To top it all off I have realized in the midst of all this that I am only getting an average of about 4-5 hours of sleep at night!!!!!  not good. (that’s another blog post on that soon! 😉 )

So despite all my emotional and physical trials this week– I am grateful for them because they are making me a stronger woman.

So whatever your challenges in life are…….just remember to JUMP RIGHT in and get on track NOW. Doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past…..all that matters is that you start doing the important things NOW.

I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
