Blogtober Day 31: Motivated Monday

Today, instead of sharing a Monday Motavtional quote, I will share what I am motavted to start……… No Excuse November!

No Excuse November! Make the Time, Plan, Check It Off!

For No Excuse November, I am challenging myself to continue to post daily as well as take steps to establish some new habits. The daily posting and the new habits are all in line with my larger goals, both short and long term.

I will continue with themed daily posts, but some of the themes will change to better fit the No Excuse November theme and my planned habits. I will also start to incude some vlogs.

Last Tuesday in my teaser post announcing No Excuse November, I mentioned that one of my goals was better routines, especially for wake-up and bedtime, which will start with early wake-up times. Below are all five habits I will be incorporating throughout November.

  • Wake-up by 5:45 am
  • 20 Minutes Activity
  • Track All Food
  • 15 minutes Personal Growth Reading
  • 30 Minutes Blog/Vlog Work/Research

My goal is to complete each habit 5 out of 7 days. Below is the tracker I will be using.

I hope you will join me in No Excuse November, while we elimate excuses in order to work towards our goals and habits. Share in the comments what habits or goals you are working towards and any steps you plan to take to get there.

Blogtober Day 30: Step it up sunday

Simple steps we can take while preparing for the week to take it to the next level………

My weekend was pretty busy, so my time to prep for the week was limited. I knew I really had to utilize my time wisely. Sunday morning, I made waffles for breakfast. I decided to double the recipe, so I would have a couple extra for later in the week. Since I cook breakfast every morning, I knew this would save me some time during the week, therefore making my mornings smoother.

For waffles and pancakes, I like to use Millville Protein with Oats mix from Aldi’s. I like to add egg whites (1/3 cup per batch) to add more protein and make them a little fluffier. Sometimes, I add chopped peacans and chocolate chips (bake believe or lily’s brand).

What was something you did last weekend to prepare for the workweek?

Blogtober Day 26: Wellness Wednesday

During the month of October, we are focusing on two deminsions of wellness each wednesday. Last week, we focused on the occupational and spiritual deminsions. Our final week will be environmental and financial.

Enviromental: Your wellness as it relates to natural resources and environmental preservation.

Financial: Knowledge, planning, and managing financies.

I am sure there are lots of things we can do to promote wellness in both of these deminsions. For environmental, we do recycle and make efforts not to waste resources. As far as financial, I believe in budgets and trying to plan ahead for things. I feel like these are probably the two deminsions that I need to put more focus on.

What do you do to support/promote your environmental and financial wellness? What demisions do you think you need to put more focus on?

Be Peaceful,

Coming Soon……….. No Excuse November

I can’t believe Blogtober is almost over, only one week left! When I decided to participate in Blogtober, I was nervous about keeping up with it. It seemed fun and exciting to make a new post every day, but it also seemed like it might be too much for me. I learned quickly that I could do it as long as I didn’t allow myself to make excuses not to.

Blogtober taught me that I could commit to something as long as I broke it down into small pieces, planned, scheduled time to work on it, and allowed myself No Excuses! This gave me the idea for No Excuse November.

During No Excuse November, I will continue some of my current daily posts, but I will also add some goals and the steps I will take to achieve. One of my goals is to develop better routines and escpecelly for wake up and bedtime. I will provide more detail as we approach November, but here is a sneak peek…….an earlier wake-up time is in my future

I would love to hear your gaols and small steps you can make to achieve them, and please be sure to comment with your favorite daily theme.

Be Peaceful,

~Nettie
