Out With The Old, In With The New

I love starting a new month! For years, I have used Calendar Home to print blank calendars to tape to my bathroom mirror. It helps keeps things in perspective for me… I try to keep in mind that being healthy and active is a daily decision. Seeing my calendar each morning motivates me to work out so I can “cross it off”…. and it also reminds me of what I have accomplished that month. A lot of times I am hard on myself for not eating 100% perfect 100% of the time…. or not running “fast” enough, or not working out “hard” enough, or not drinking enough water, or taking my supplements perfectly… But this little calendar visual helps me take ONE DAY at a time… If I have totally messed up, I can start again the next day. And honestly, looking back…… I have changed a lot over the last 6 years… but it has definitely been gradual.

Here’s to a NEW MONTH!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    Good idea! I haven’t done the calendar thing in a while and I used to live by one! Being the visual person I am – I’m gonna have to start doing this again.
