No Excuse November Day 16: Wellness Wednesday

Just stopping by to share my Habit Tracker! One more successful week down means one more week closer to my goals!

Habit Tracker Week 2!

A couple of days ago, I mentioned struggling with the time change. It’s dark more than it is light, which makes me sleepy. I restarted taking my vitamin D, and about mid-day I open the blinds; this has really seemed to help. I am not ready for bed at 6:30pm, the last 2 nights LOL. I also order a personal sunlight lamp, which I will start using tomorrow.

I would love to hear about your goals, habits, wellness challanges, wellness vitories, etc….

Be Peaceful,

No Excuse November Day 13: Sharing Saturday & Sunday

Hi all! I hope you had a great weekend!

Today was pretty low key. I grocery shopped, had to hit Sally’s, cooked, laundry, etc… We have a big weekend coming up next week, so I tried to just to get some downtime today. What about you? How was your weekend?

I noticed since the time change last weekend, I’m getting tired way too early. Does this happen to anyone else? I restarted taking my vitamins, especially my vitamin D! What do you do for winter time fatigue or blues? I’m considering getting a UV light.

Be Peaceful,

No Excuse November Day 3: Think about it Thursday

Today is the day! No Excuse! Just Start!

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. – Theodore Roosevelt

Sometimes, we overcomplicate things which inturn causes us to procrastinate or worse…… Never start! What is something you want to do but have talked yourself out of? What is a small step you can take to just start? Think about it?

I always wanted to blog and/or vlog but would always convince myself not to, or when I did try, I would give up too easily. I finally realized that if it was something I wanted to do, then I should just do it and commit to it. I set a date, came up with a plan, and then just started! I proved to me that I could!

Be Peaceful,

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.

Be Peaceful,

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?

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
