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.

  • Hello! I wanted to welcome all the new faces around here as it’s been a while since I did any sort of introduction. So here is a little about how I started and a goal of mine, please do share a little about you, and a goal too!⠀
•⠀
I started this blog over four years ago while on mat leave with Sophie. I’d never met anyone who blogger, didn’t know a thing about building a website but had a passion for social media and a need for connection.⠀
•⠀
Six months later I went to school for graphic design and graduated from BCIT and Emily Carr in Vancouver a year later. It was a crazy year doing school and keeping this blog afloat — but I’m so glad I did it!⠀
•⠀
This space has grown into such a beautiful thing for me. A place to feel inspired, creative, encouraged and connected to so many others in the same and different stages of life.⠀
•⠀
It’s been on my heart (for over a year now) to create a physical place for connection, not just this profile on Instagram. I have no idea what it looks like yet but the passion is growing stronger as I feel I might start having more time to develop on this idea. I think I need to start taking some of my own advice, the same line I say to those wanting to start a blog but don’t know how. Just start, you’ll figure it out as you go.⠀

  • Has anyone else started to get that back to school panic yet? Like how the heck is it two weeks away?? I was talking to a friend yesterday about both our kids going into kinds this year and how strange of a stage it is. We’ve spent 5 years raising these little humans of ours and then off they go to spend most of their day learning. I’m super excited for Sophie because I know she’s going to love it, but that weird mom panic is starting to set in 😅 also! Ezra is going into Grade 4 😶 when did that happen?! He thinks he is going into grad 5 because he was in a 3/4 split last year and already knows everything that Grade 4’s would learn 🤷🏼‍♀️ he’s got a good argument but I keep telling him I’m pretty sure he’s going into grade 4 still, poor guy.

On a whole other note... Evelyn has started to master this whole potty training thing and I bought he some underwear cause we are fully committing (minus bedtimes) things really do happen all at once when it comes to parenting hey.. we’ve got all the feels happening today 😅😢😳😍😊🤔 ps: @peoplefootwear my kids want to thank you for keeping their feet stylish and comfortable this summer 😘 #gifted #peoplefootwear
