This is a sponsored post. All views, opinions and lifestyle goals are my own.

We are somehow nearing the end of March and I can’t even believe that it is the third month of the year. It feels like we were just setting our New Years goals. Now here we are, almost a 1/4 of the way into the year. I wanted to touch base on some of the lifestyle goals that I had set at the start of the year and share what is next on my lifestyle journey.

Making changes to your daily lifestyle is for sure not an easy thing. I can say that I want to exercise more, I can plan the day that I want to exercise, and still may not exercise. Plan it, write it out, schedule it, then do it. I’ve been struggling with just doing it, however I am excited to share that I am going to be working with someone one-on-one with exercising and eating healthier.

As we work harder at a better routine for healthier meals within our home, getting outside more for exercise and drinking more water, I can see the positive outcomes. Not all days are easy and not all days do we achieve all our goals, but it is focusing on those goals and seeing the positive outcome that has been beneficial. When the harder days come, we know we need to focus back on what makes a difference in our home. Getting outside, and doing things that make living a healthy life easy, like meal planning in advance and bringing water bottles with you on the go.. All of that fuels our minds and our bodies with good energy, allowing us to stay positive and active.

It is great to bring your kids along to the grocery store (even though I don’t always love it). I find that it allows them to help make healthier choices with me, as I can point out why we might buy one brand over another. Our kids can help make purchasing decisions together and be excited about eating the foods that they had a hand in choosing.

Today’s Parent also has some great tips for getting your family to eat healthy that you might be interested in checking out here.

Having a special water bottle has been great for encouraging our kids to drink more water. I try to keep track of my daily water intake in my phone or on the weekly goals free printable that I created. The goals sheet has a place for calculating each glass of water each day. Remember to stay positive as you work towards your own goals, we are bound to have harder days, do not let those get you down. Learn from them and then make yourself stronger. You got this, I got this. 

Let’s set our goals, accomplish them and then start over again in creating new lifestyle goals. Cheers to healthier lifestyle choices.

  • I had my wisdom teeth out today and I feel like this wall is rather fitting. I have such a hard time resting, staying home and doing nothing.... More awesome now please.

  • Got to hang with some goats and do a little toga today, with about 400 other people. Have you tried goat yoga? Would you??
  • There’s some new faces around here and it’s been a while since I did a little intro, an about me per se... just a little bit more random.

1. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life. Some may think it’s boring.. I’d call it loyal 😅 .. either way, I know a lot about Abbotsford.
2. If you hold your hand up, palm facing away from you. Pull your thumb back and see how far you can go. Mine can touch the back of my arm, it’s forever been my “talent”.
3. It’s been 5 years (almost to the day) since I started my blog. Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, then went to school to be a police officer, changed gears into business and marketing, graduated with graphic design and its led me to hear. I never had big goals or felt like I was on the right path, but motherhood and this space has brought me all the feels.
4. We’ve been looking for land to grow some flowers of our own. My husband grew up on a flower farm (both the peonies and iris’ pictured are from their farm), property prices can just go ahead and come down a little now.
5. I don’t know if the feeling of being done is for real.. like we feel like we are done having kids but I’d be fibbing if I said it doesn’t come to mind every now and again.

That’s all for now friends. Share a little something about you below — say hi if you are new hear and thanks for reading til the end 🥰🙌🏻
  • Throwing it back to the other day when I went for an evening dip with my beaver @float.eh — it was such a hoot heading to the beach with @juliechristine_xo and gave me a peek into how much fun this summer is going to be.⠀ ⠀
#ad As you can see these aren’t your typical floaties... or should I say @float.eh ’s 😉 They are proudly Canadian, made with quality in mind. You gotta check out their website and see what other fun Canadian designs they have. [ go to float-eh.ca or see my story highlights for the link ] 🇨🇦
  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.
