Setting Realistic Lifestyle Goals + FREE Printable

As we start the first week of the new year I want to speak/write out some goals (on our weekly goals free printable download) that I plan to integrate into my life in an effort to create a healthier lifestyle for myself. It is easy to put ourselves to the side when we are caring for our children, but it is important to note that if we aren’t our best it is hard to give our best.

“You can’t pour from an empty cup” is a quote that I was hearing a lot of at the end of last year and it has been motivating me to keep my cup full and charged. Having a “full cup” allows me to provide a better lifestyle for myself and family. In order to do that, I have created some goals that I believe will lead me in the right direction.

Personal Lifestyle Goals for 2017

• Exercise:

For the month of January I am going to aim to intentionally go out for a walk or plan an activity that allows me to get a work-out a minimum of once a week. As the months go by and I get used to adding exercise into my routine, I plan on working my way up to three times a week each month.

• Stay Hydrated:

I know for a fact that I do not drink enough water, I often feel parched and need to be planning a better way to stay hydrated. With the help of my free printable I am aiming to drink a minimum of 5 cups of water a day. As this becomes more second nature I aim to work my way up to having consistent times of the day that I am drinking water and naturally drinking my 8 glasses of water each day.

Tip: Make it easier to reach for water everyday by making sure that water is always available.

• Healthier Eating:

When I am feeling busy, stressed, overwhelmed usually the first thing that goes is eating healthy. Planning out healthier meals needs to start right now and my ultimate goal is to create a diary of healthy meals that fit well into our lifestyle. Eating out shouldn’t be such a habit like it is now. I know that this change, when implemented, will allow the two above changes to be more motivating as well.

• Stay Positive:

I want to create weekly goals and surround myself with positive vibes. Encouragement is something that I like to give but also something that fuels me for reaching my goals and really successful. I am excited to start making these lifestyle changes and seeing the positive changes that it brings to my family and our relationships. When we fuel our bodies with nourishing foods and drink the recommended amount of water each day we are bound to feel happier and live healthier.

To keep track of my goals and to encourage you all to live a healthier and happier lifestyle I have created a free weekly goals printable. I will be checking in a couple times in the next couple months sharing my accomplishments and showing how I have used and filled in my printable.

Looking forward to sharing progress. In the meantime, for more information on the benefits of drinking water for yourself and your children visit the Nestle Waters website.

  • 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.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada
