Mamavation Monday 9/5 - Confession Time

As the title of this post says, it's confession time! 

I have gained weight.  I am not sure how much, but I have gained some.  I know this because I feel it.

My water intake has been great, but my eating and fitness level - not so great.  School has dominated most of my time this past few weeks, so I have been sitting on my butt and doing  a lot of studying. 

I'm very frustrated with myself.  I think back to myself a year ago when I was literally on top of all my health related goals.  I'm back to the same person that joined Mamavation a year and a half ago. 

So, this week's goal is to do yoga for a half hour every night before bed.  I chose yoga because it will give me some great stretching which I will need since I spend all day sitting in class.

Another goal this week is to blog daily.  I have been horrible about blogging and since I'm out of drafts and scheduled posts, I must get creative once again!

This post is rather fitting into this week's question:  How is my routine changing since summer is winding down? Any go tips?

My routine is changing in the fact that I now have to add studying and class time into my day.  Some of my school days do not end until 9pm!  I keep myself organized by planning meals for the week and using my crock pot a lot.  Also, I keep a calendar for everyone to access so that we don't miss Soccer practice or a school function.  Cozi's calendar has been a life saver!

Have a great week everyone!  Sorry for my constant absence.  I am hoping this week I will have more time to spend!

Life happens, but I think you are much more aware than you were before you joined mamavation.
God luck with your goals this week.

It is great to be honest with yourself, and to get back on track as soon as you are. I know that life gets crazy, but hopefully you can set aside a little time for planning to make it all run more smothly. <3

I'm back in school this week too!! It's tough, isn't it? But the structure is kind of nice. And enjoy the yoga! You'll be back on track in no time :)

I am so excited to see you back posting!

I know you have been a busy Mama. How was the job? I forget if it was a Summer position or if you are juggling that and school. Either way, you rock.

Yes, life takes us up and down. If you want to try the Top Trainers again, I will be your buddy. :) Just let me know.

Hope you have a great week.
