#TotalMommyMakeover Week 1 Check-In
Checking in with my #TotalMommyMakeover Week 1 progress has been really eye-opening. I’m not doing anything major, yet I’m on track to accomplish some major goals!
Keeping a Journal and using better communication techniques (from the counseling class I’m taking) are helping us to have a more peaceful home. Although we love each other dearly, we’re all in different age groups (40, 16, 4) and that sometimes causes issues.
The other really, really, really helpful thing this week has been our Miracle Morning routine. When we do it, things feel different. We are different. More at peace. The days we forgot to do it or overslept were not as productive or functional. We are definitely going to work on consistency with this!
I have used Mint for a while but I’m looking for a service where I can be a little more hands-on. The set-it-and-forget-it thing was/is nice but I guess I’m the type that needs a bit more involvement. More involvement = more accountability.
Super stoked about this section! My blog network is coming together nicely and my “work” website is ready for my old content to be imported. I’m ready to start taking on remote administrative support (virtual assisting) clients again!
Other than the Emotional stuff, we haven’t done anything. We’d like to start a vegan Turquoise Table tradition.
We’ve committed to rebooting the Daily Prayer Walk and joining an actual Prayer Walk to pray for our community as we walk. We’re also going back to our Goodnight Gratitude routine (each person lists at least 3 things they are grateful for from that day).
Keeping a Journal is also helping me to keep track of my migraines, changes in my mood/energy level, and diet. I’m searching for traditional triggers like dehydration, too much sugar, etc. but also things like emotional distress or stress in general that can be cut out.
In addition to the 21 Day Fix workouts, we’re working on our own 21 Day Fix vegan meal plans. We hope to start them full-time in December but for now, we’re just winging it. We’ve decided to hold off on supplements for now and figure out how to eat better. The 21 Day Fix containers are easy to use but it does take some getting used to. Especially when you are a new vegan, trying to think of actual meal ideas instead of just dumping all of your choices into a large reusable container and snacking out of that (like we’re doing now 🤣).
We’d use the meal plans we’ve found online or the official Beachbody 21 Day Fix Vegan menu plan but they have some ingredients we can’t find locally. We’ve challenged ourselves to make this so easy even we can do it. No excuses easy. That means no “… but we don’t have x, y, z to make ___.”
Overall, I’d say this week was a success. Not as productive or exciting-in-a-good-way as I’d hoped but progress is progress. Every week forward is another win in the books!
How was your week?
Wishing you much peace, happiness, and success,
P.S. If you are interested in something and do not see it on my Training Calendar, let me know. I'd be happy to help in any way I can!
