March RESTART


Do you feel you aren’t living the BEST version of yourself?  I do, often.  I made a list of 18 things to accomplish this year, 18 for 2018. May seem excessive, some are simple/easy, I have been chipping away with positive results. The results- I am showing up better in my life, but still not my BEST self.
 
I often get caught up comparing myself to others, which takes me down a negative path of self destruction.  This month I am letting that go.  All I can control is ME and being the best version of ME!!

March I will RESTART. The best version of me has Balance. When I was in life coaching class we talked about our personal balance wheel.  Your wheel is where you spend your time and effort each day- Family, Career, Health, Spiritual, Financial, Social, etc…  You can’t give 100% to everything, you will be depleted. Over time your priorities or areas of focus will shift depending on which parts of your wheel need more attention.  Do a quick Google on “Life Balance Wheel” and you will get more information than you will need.

 I did a quick swag for my March RESTART balance wheel.  Each piece of the pie has key actions I will accomplish this month.  It is exciting to have a map like this to reference on my journey. Maintaining balance will be key for me.


PHYSICAL:
Do you remember my bloggy buddy Kerrie, formerly Mom Vs. Marathon, now DISfitlife?  She and her husband Jamey are hosting a FREE #MetabolicMadness challenge starting on March 5th. They will provide targeted workouts for the Fitness portion of my wheel. 

 I joined the gym at my work, I start Yoga for the first time tomorrow at 5:15 am. I will take Yoga class every Friday this month.

 If you want to kick up your workouts another buddy of mine Blond Ponytail also has free workouts in March!!

 FAMILY:
By connection I mean targeted 1:1 time with my husband and children. This will be the FUN part of my month.  Date night with hubby. Taking Kiddo #1 to basketball tournaments, solo, just him and me. Taking Kiddo #2 to a private swim lesson. And special Kindergarten fun times with Kiddo #3.  I also want to pull away from the screen more in the evenings, as I have developed a BAD habit of getting eaten by the couch monster.

As the month progresses I will check in on how I am doing, what is working, what I learn, struggles, etc.  I would love your comments and thoughts as well.
