30 Days

I am very glad to hear that I am not alone in sometimes letting my days control me. I had several fellow mothers comment on yesterday's post letting me know that they are right there with me. I don't know about you guys, but I can tell it is going to be a long road for me to change my ways. There were several times that I felt myself being pulled back toward my old habits but I kept reminding myself that I want to change. If I is important to me, I will make it happen!

 After looking back and reflecting on my day and progress towards my new goals, I think I'll give my efforts an 80%. I didn't get sucked in to any Apps or the Internet or anything so that was good. As far as exercise , I did P90X Plyometrics during Ayden's nap.

Go me!! Haha

It was so tempting to lay with him and meal plan or read but I knew it would probably be my only chance for a workout all day. He woke up with only 11 minutes to go. I was hot, sweaty and out of breath when I went in to get him; so I will call it a great workout, even if I didn't get to finish. I would also like to mention that Mama is SORE today from yesterday's workouts. My back, chest and abs are totally screaming, "WTF!" today and it hurts so good. I did loose track of time a couple of times today while chatting with my parents but I still feel that is time well spent. I know that when I am their age I'm really going to cherish this time I will have spent with them. I really am getting to know them on a whole different level and it is really a great thing.

After dinner, we went out with David while he worked on putting up a rabbit fence around the garden.

We also took full-size carrots out to the horses and Ayden was so brave! He held them right out to them and didn't even flench when they snatched them from his hand.

Ayden is also using his please sign appropriately and it is so cute that I think it's going to get me into trouble.

For example, today at lunch he wanted my phone. When I didn't give it to him, he started to whine at me. Then he stopped, thought for a second and then signed please while saying, "eeeeee" in the sweetest little voice. I held strong this time but it made me want to give him the world!

I am going to keep trucking on making these goals of mine into new habits. Someone told me that it takes 30 days to form a new habit. 2 down and 28 to go. I've got this! I have made the decision to make a change and I'm pretty good about following through once I've made a decision like this. Lucky for me I have you guys to hold me accountable!



  1. I'm so glad to hear your still so optimistic. You can do this girlie!!!

  2. I know you can do it! As soon as things settle after the new baby I'm going to do the same thing as far as evaluating my day and making sure to add/remove the things that I need and want to in order to be productive!
