The next FOCUS

  In my last post I was telling you that I am really enjoying Kiana Tom's site. I had remembered her before we went on vacation and I wondered what she was doing since her show Flex Appeal. I was wondering if the show was still produced so I could do some of the workouts. Since I decided to do only workouts I enjoy. What I did find is her website and she is doing "Fitmom" workouts now. They are streamed live on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Then can be watched later as well. She has great advise for moms. This is the link to her site.

  This morning I was thinking about my new goal. Last month my focus was on one thing. COFFEE!! I was able to get myself back to tea after 6 years. I love it. I feel better and I don't feel like I am controlled by a beverage

   "The Power of Less" book by Leo Babauta taught me one life changing skill last month. Focus on one thing only.That one thing is your focus and all your energy goes into that. That helped me so much. So this month my one thing...Do Fitmom workouts three times a week. No more than that. If something else happens like a walk great. But the workouts will happen. So I am two in. When I get to twelve I am going to buy myself a new workout shirt. I'll keep you posted.

Working out

So I made a new framed motivation board for my workout space downstairs. I love it. I found some great pictures and stories I've kept throughout the years.

I also am really liking Kiana Tom's website with her fit mom workouts. 30 minutes of intensity workout with some super sets. I love it because it gets my heart rate up, it has my favourite workout -weights and it's ONLY 30 minutes. I can do problem!!!

Healthy Pleasures??

  We have been back from the wonderful world Disneyland for about a week and a half. It was an amazing family trip. One we will repeat next year with us exploring California alot more. I am going to do a post about Disneyland but for today I wanted to talk about what has been going on in my life.

  So coffee is no longer a part of my life. For a solid month and it is so freeing. I used to think about when my next coffee fix was coming. That is not happening anymore. It feels like such a huge hurdle. I have also given up Facebook. I just wasn't finding a whole lot of positives. So while we were away I didn't post and I didn't look. I find ~for myself ~I am reading more and just finding other things to do. I just spent far to much time on there.

    I have been not feeling that great lately. John and I made a pact when we came back from our trip we would work on getting healthier. I really started thinking about what makes me happy and gives me joy.I wanted the healthy habits to be things that didn't feel like a chore. So I wrote down things I thought were missing and things I wanted to include more in my life.

  This includes more smoothies, weight training, walking with my neighbour and chatting up a storm, hiking,  going to Ancient Forest, getting a new bike, enjoy being outside, yoga, finding more healthy role models and blogging more often.

 I feel like I have to shake things up. I feel like I'm in a negative headspace and I feel so tired. Something needs to change and I am going to do something about it!!

    And NOT buy anymore girl guide cookies from my niece.(LOL) I am wishing everyone a beautiful and HAPPY Spring. I will end with a question." What brings you healthy pleasure and how are you going to make sure it is in your life???"
