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.

  1. I think they are GREAT goals because they ARE attainable and setting you up to succeed rather than fail. Do it for yourself, lady. You are worth it!! But there is one goal missing…….to see ME this year! ;)

  2. These are great goals!!!! good luck achieving them!
