Tracking the things we do to meet the goals we have.

If you came over to my house right now, you would see notebooks all over. I am a pen-to-paper kind of person. I am rarely on my phone. I actually use the Screen time settings to limit my screen time on my phone. Somedays I choose to go over, but most days I rarely even get a notification for apps like Facebook or Instagram that I have even hit my daily time limit. I need to adjust my podcast and YouTube settings because I listen to those throughout the day, and listening to things is the majority of my phone usage. 

So when I got a fitness and nutrition coach to hold me accountable to my goals, you know her, my friendBeckie with Relentlessly Fit, and the entire program required an app and using it to track my nutrition, activity, and water daily, you can guess how that went over.

When I checked in this morning, I made a commitment to write down what I am eating throughout the week...

50 Ways to Fill Your Cup in 10 Minutes or Less

Filling our cup or self-care doesn't have to be difficult or time-consuming. I used to think I needed a whole Spa Day or Girl's Night to consider it "Me Time". 

Changing the way we look at self-care makes it so much less stressful. And honestly who has time to stress over the thing that is supposed to help us manage our stress??

Not Me. 

So I scoured the internet, talked to friends, racked my brain, and I put together a list of self-care action items you can do in less than 10 minutes. 

Start taking care of yourself, so you can show up and take care of everyone else.

How to make time for the things you NEED to do, and still do the things you WANT to do.

How to make time for the things you NEED to do, and still do the things you WANT to do.
I KNOW BUSY. 

I live it. Every single day.

So, when I told myself I was writing a blog post today, I made the time to do it. I looked at my list of blog ideas, and realized this topic was perfect.

Which is why I KNOW you need to hear this too.

We all have the same amount of hours in the day. We decide what we are going to do with those hours. If we have set obligations, we have less hours to get our other tasks done, but still need to do them.

This may look like working out for 30 minutes a week if that is all you can squeeze in, as long as you make the time to take care of your body. 

75 Hard (even though I am on my 3rd reboot at the time of this writing...) is teaching me about prioritizing the things that are important to us. I am spending 1hr 30m a day working out.

Creating a well balanced life

Creating a well balanced life
When I woke up late on Monday (because I stayed up too late... again), I didn't have time for a slow morning routine before getting ready to go to the vet. I usually write my morning social media posts, emails, and work for a little bit before really getting going for the day.

Keeping Promises to Yourself is Vital to being Successful
This weekend was a true test of my commitment to the promises I make to myself. I am usually the first person I am okay with disappointing, but I am changing that story. I am keeping my promises to myself. If I can't keep them for myself, how will I ever be consistent with others?

How are we not unpacked yet?

With a to-do list this long, it's sometimes hard to stay on task. I have always been a planner girl, but am finding my traditional paper planner isn't cutting it anymore. We are attempting some digital options to tie in with my traditional paper planning, and are seeing some good results. 

This week, as we get closer to ringing in 2021, I am focusing on time blocking to get all of the things done. I can't wait to finally feel like we are in the swing of some sort of normalcy around here.
