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.

  • Just about to head to Whistler with this guy and so excited to spend some time just the two of us! It’s been a whhhiiilllleeeeeee
  • Part way through our lunch the kids started to bicker back and forth, creating a rather not-so-enjoyable moment for everyone. It's those moments that us as parents can make a difference, how we handle situations with our children allows them to learn and grow through our words and actions. We spoke about the importance of being kind and how much more enjoyable our time together is when we are all speaking respectfully and sharing. .

I then shared with the kids that that was exactly why I was taking a few pictures with our pizza, to share with others about the launch of @panago_pizza's 2nd annual Bullying Awareness and Prevention campaign. That Panago wanted to celebrate young people who are being kind and looking out for others in their communities. Our kids are learning everyday, it's our job to be great role models, encourage their kind behaviour and then celebrate them in their good choices. .

Do you want to take a minute to celebrate a child in your life? From now until Nov 25th Panago is asking for you to nominate a deserving youth and share a story them using compassion to drive change. Go to my stories for more info and the link to nominate #sponsored #asliceofnice
  • Hey 👋🏻 it’s kinda late... for some I suppose.. I’m usually up til midnight working away and wanted to hop on and share about my blog/small business journey. It was the start of this year that I really “proclaimed” this as my business and really felt so proud of what I’d created. It’s been A LOT of work to say the least but it’s brought so so much joy, opportunities and relationships. I love creating and sharing here, but most of all I love encouraging and connecting with YOU! Thanks for being here and for reading this. I think today I all the sudden realized we were in November and the end of the year is near. How did that happen?! If you made it through this little love note, share something about you below.. maybe how you discovered my blog/Instagram or what a goal is that you have? Excited to read through those comments in the AM.
  • That day we found a marble staircase and @juliechristinephotography made a fart joke. She gets me.
  • Proud mama moment. Sophie came home from kindergarten one afternoon reciting this Remembrance Day poem over and over. It’s pretty cute! Turn your sound on and listen too 😊❤️
  • This picture makes me melt. I set the camera on self-timer and wanted to get some action shots of the three of us working on the "do try this at home" section of the @guinnessworldrecords book. When I looked back at the captures and I saw Ezras very content grin, I just couldn't even. Seriously no words. It reminded me that our kids don't care how we show up (myself pictured with a messy bun & PJs), it's the time we put in that is remembered. •

#ad Thanks to @guinnessworldrecords for encouraging us to attempt one of their 5 maker challenges and seeing how much fun the kids had blowing up balloons and learning to make balloon dogs. After a few tries I completed on in 2 minutes, might not be the fastest time in the books, but we saw some good progress from my first attempt ha! If your kids love creating, reading about all sorts of random and crazy accomplishments then head to the blog and check out what's new in the Guinness World Records 2019 edition. #GWR2019
