Alien Hunting Survival — Routines!
So this is my first post on my new blog. I ditched my other blog but if you want to read it you can find it here. It’s taken me some time to figure out what I want to do with this blog and how I want to share it with others. There are a zillion fitness sites and motivation blogs. I don’t want this blog to be another dull blog. I want to share the part of me that I like best, my personality. So from here on out, this blog is going to be about my fitness but also about my mental health, my goals, and how I learn to be happy while living in this world.
Last night I was trying to decide if I needed the right YouTube video to teach me how to change or if I needed to be introspective and figure it out for myself. I woke up this morning, almost allowing myself to get low. What gets me low? Breaking my routines. Especially the NEW ones. The thing I have discovered that makes me happy, is changing the things I want to change. When I wake up and my house is clean, my kids get to school on time, I have a list and a plan for the day I am happier.
When I go to bed at night feeling like I lived another Groundhog Day, repeating the same mistakes over and over and nothing is changing, I get LOW, really really low. I feel like a failure and I want to give up. So to change this pattern. I am working on routines. And trying not to overwhelm myself with change. My exercise and logging my food is pretty ingrained now. So, my routine is my evening routine. I have two goals, go to bed with my kitchen and dining room clean. I have an alarm for quality time with my daughter, and quality time with my son. What I have learned is that when I commit an hour of my life to my kids they are happier. When they are happier, and in a routine, I am happier.
So those are my current new routines, and I’m adding one more. THIS BLOG. Because this blog is my new baby, my new passion. My opportunity to share my positivity, and how I grow as a fit girl, a mom and an alien warrior.
Get fit don’t quit!
