Do you want to change your life for the better?
Here’s how my journey towards a more positive future is going.
1. Healthy Eating/Weight Loss – Isn’t it amazing how long the festive food hangs about? Anyway, ours is finally gone and I am back on my healthy eating plan. Soup is proving a real ally and yes Weightwatchers branded products too.
2. Exercise – I did go for a country walk this week but I really do need to get into a proper routine to ensure I take good exercise every day. I would love to be one of those mums who runs but wonder how you get that process started in the first place. Where do you do it? Do you feel a right fool? All advice gratefully received on this one. There is a boxercise class in my local town which I am really tempted to attend. However, then those self-doubts get in the way. Go away, you nasty monster. I am trying to get my groove back. I do find it hard to motivate myself on the exercise front. Any tips?
3. I bought some books at the charity shop yesterday as there was a 3 books for the price of two offer on. I got the Goddess Guide, a Driving Skills book and a book on how to have financial success. I think this shows that I am definitely keen to get that va-va voom back or perhaps to invent it for the very first time.
4. The Groovy Mums initiative which I established way back in September 2011 is featured today on the Netmums blog. Fame at last? I am hoping it leads to some new contributors to the Groovy Mums crew.
There is a page that tells you all about “How To Be A Groovy Mum” on this site so check it out.
5. I have made some requests (demands) for changed behaviours from Him Indoors. I am already seeing very positive results. Maybe sometimes it is just as simple as saying what you need and want.
6. I just have a sense and can’t say too much on some matters that the universe if finally catching up and pushing me in the right direction. Could it be that when you start to expect good things they do actually happen? What do you reckon? Got to be worth a try?
7. I have done some positive work on my novel. It felt really good to do so and I have a very good reason for making progress with it and fast.
This week, a bullying incident at school really rocked my equilibrium for a while leading to comfort eating and self-loathing rearing their very rotten heads. My son brought home a leaflet on bullying and I now recognise what I can do to help the children and also how it is normal for such events to bring up feelings from my own experiences of being bullied. That gives me strength. Plus I am so proud of my son for picking up the leaflet and bringing it to my attention.
How’s that for an OK start to 2012?
