Day 22: To New Beginnings

"When you're trying to motivate yourself, appreciate the fact that you're even thinking about making a change. And as you move forward, allow yourself to be good enough." (Alice Domar)
Hello, my lovely friends!
The year 2019 was a pretty good year for us. When my nephew Cuinn came to visit in July, my Mom started to look forward to new things. She had a pep in her step and things were looking up, but then my grandma passed away three days before Christmas and all that progress that happened in the summer went out the window. There has been so many distractions and things going on since then that my 2020 resolutions have been there doing nothing. Now we are through everything and our lives are back to normal it’s time to start working on making 2020 a successful year.
January is coming to an end (Wow, that’s fast) I’m going to focus on a couple of things this month. If I can work on changing one to two bad habits a month into positive ones I can be really successful this year. For the rest of the month this is what I’m doing…
1. No more pop ~ Ugh, this love/hate relationship must end. My Mom likes having pop in the house, but she can drink one 16 oz. bottle for days, but I will drink that a day. I’ve talked with my mom and guess what she’s okay without pop. This month I’m just having water with lemon and green tea in the morning.
2. Make a plan ~ I like planning and having things right in front of me because I suck at winging it. I’m going to sit down this week and plan what I’m going to eat and my fitness plan. I would like to have a couple of weeks’ worth of menus.
3. Waking up earlier ~ Being at home I don’t have to wake up at a certain time anymore, but now it’s getting to the point that it’s making me lazy. I need to start setting an alarm and waking up with a plan for the day to get myself in a position to have success this year.
Those are the things that I’m going to work on for the rest of this month.
