Happy New Year! We’ve had a great day so far. We started the day with some mommy & me yoga, watched Despicable Me for the first time, and ordered pizza for lunch. We had a dance party, have a walk planned for after lunch, and I’m headed to the gym at nap time.
I’ve spent some time this morning looking over my goals for the month of January and… I’m a little worried I’ve overloaded myself. I’m going to try and get through them all and we’ll see as the month goes on. I can always juggle, revisit, and replan. There are just a few non-negotiable things: fruits & veggies, exercise, and some meditation or yoga to quiet my head.
Frankly, I’m excited for this month. Roni’s DietBet starts tomorrow. Today is the first day of a month of NO DESSERTS too. I thought about doing no sugar at all, or no sweets, and then I thought about how many extreme challenges I’ve failed at in the past, and scaled it back to no desserts. Specifically, no: cookies, cake, brownies, candy, chocolate, fudge, ice cream, donuts, bars. Basically, I’m specifically seeking out the kinds of things that tend to lead me to overeating, and not allowing them this month. My goal is simply to break the addiction so that I can go back to normal eating and enjoying some sweets, instead of my current state of constantly craving desserts at every meal and in between.
I’m also continuing with YogaADay, doing 31 Days, following the Wellness Calendar, and a whole lot more. I’m aiming to get back to Gorilla Workouts, do 10,000 steps every day with my FitBit, and write a little (just for me) every day.
What are YOU doing this month to help feel balanced?
