~8 Weeks to a Better Me~

As a Mama I'm constantly putting other things first. We all do it. "I have 6 loads of laundry, a track meet, clean the bathroom and fix dinner! I dont have to time to hang out on the elliptical tonight!" WELL. I am putting myself in charge of myself for 8 weeks. It's a physical, spiritual, nutritional, positive, mind changing challenge. I will make weekly goals in addition to some long term ones. I think everyone has room for improvement and i think if I can do some small tweaks to my life I can benefit in the long run. I've delegated some of the extra work around here to Papa and Moe and they seem very eager to help so that I have time for all of it.

              ~WEEK ONE~
*eat 5 full servings of fruits&veggies a day
(this is harder than you think)

* walk,hike,run,elliptic,ride my bike,etc. 15 miles this week

*yoga at least one day this week

* 60 minutes total a day towards physical beauty(nairing my mustache,deep conditioning my hair, clippin my toenails) you get the can be broken up as long as it totals 60!

*support a local Mom-n-pop style business

*patch my favorite jeans

* go to bed before 10:00p.m. M-Thurs

* drink at least 64 ounces of water everyday

In spirit of Mothers day I encourage you all to join in this 8 week journey. I have alot of me time for the next two months. If you can't get ahold of me I'm probably waxing my back or eating dandelions(which are tasty by the way....)
