My Fall Goals...............

ONE: To wake up every morning with a grateful heart and be motivated for the day.
I have found myself lately sometimes waking up and feeling lazy and not very motivated. I don't like feeling this way and at the end of the day I feel defeated. I plan on changing this starting today.

TWO: To get all my "stuff" done while the kids are in school/MMO. Run all my errands, answer emails, pay bills, grocery shop, go to the gym, and write my blog. I want to have all of this done so at the end of the day I get to focus all of my attention on my family....with no distractions.

THREE: I know you've heard me say this before, but get in the gym more! I will have no excuse now that I have my mornings free. I have a set training session at 9:30 three days a week starting today and I can't wait! I simply feel better mentally and physically when I workout! 

FOUR: Cook more healthy meals for my family. I think we all get into ruts when it comes to cooking or maybe it's just me. I find myself making the same 5 or 6 things every week, A) because it's easy and B) because I know the kids will eat it. But it gets so boring after a while so my plan is start slow and do one new healthy meal a week. Plus, I think I've made it pretty clear healthy eating is not my strong point. But, I really want to try harder The fast food may taste good, but it never makes me feel good.

FIVE:  Even though Todd and I have a date night once a week I want to make more time for us and building our relationship. In the evenings when we get the kids down I often find myself wanting to just veg out and watch TV. And even though I think this is great to do this some nights, I want to spend more time talking and spending time with Todd. I am loving the fact that we are reading the Magic together right now. Not going to lie though, most nights I try to back out of reading and convince him to watch TV, but I feel so much better when we read a chapter together than I do after a TV show.

SEVEN: Not to compare myself to everyone else. This is such a tough one. It's so easy in the world we live in to get caught up in comparing ourselves. When I start to do this I always try and think of the quote below because it's so true.

So have you made any goals this fall? If so, I would love to know what they are!
