Mamavation Monday – January 7

CSA with loofa

The last week in my Mamavation journey was all about setting goals.  I want my goals – and the ones for my family – to be reasonable, attainable, and sustainable.  While I’d love to say that I’ll exercise 2 hours a day, 6 days a week, that just isn’t going to happen.  Neither is a complete change in the way my family eats – not immediately, anyway.  So, here’s what I think will challenge me (us), but not so much that hands go up in the air in defeat because it’s just too much:

 

  • I will lose one clothing size between now and April 4 (my birthday).
  • My family will transition to a mostly Paleo diet.  We’ll cut way back on breads and pastas, and increase our meat and veggie consumption.
  • I will exercise in some format (treadmill, Wii exercise games, outdoor activities) for at least 30 minutes 4 times a week.

I know those might not seem like huge goals, but they really kind-of are for stubborn me and my stubborn family :)  I tend to start out well with goals like this, but quickly lose steam and interest.  In selecting only 3 goals and making them attainable, I hope they will stick.

In the last week, I did well with the Paleo-ish diet, but bombed with the exercise.  I need to do better.  I will do better.
