My Weekly Ambition - YUMMommy

My Weekly Ambition


This week I'm linking up with Marika over at Ambitious Curls for My Weekly Ambition.  With so much on my plate lately, it can get pretty easy to give in to procrastination and just get discouraged and overwhelmed.  So, I figured that joining in with her on highlighting a positive quote, goal, habit  and challenge each week will help me to stay focused and keep me encouraged.  If you want to join in just click on the button above to link up!









To exercise for 30 minutes everyday.  While I've gotten back track with watching my consumption of sweets and sugary drinks, I still 5 pounds that I need to drop.  Those pounds have decided to take a rest in my stomach area and that ain't cute. At. All.  I worked so hard last year to drop my pregnancy weight and get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes.  Now it's time to continue my efforts so that I can stay in these clothes.




To write for one hour everyday.  Thankfully, both kids woke up feeling better today. Noses were still running this morning, but their coughs are gone and the runny nose went away by lunch time.  Trip to the pediatrician avoided.  However, I'm behind on my novel.  JJ is very clingy and moody when he's sick.  Plus, since I'm not nursing him anymore, he hasn't been as easy to console when he's in one of his moods or upset.

And usually I devote the hour after they go to sleep to writing, but as you guys know from previous posts, they haven't really been sleeping because of their colds.  So, right now it's after 9 PM and JJ has already gone to sleep.  Fingers crossed, Moo will be joining him in Dream Land soon.



To start and end each day on a positive note.  Life is always throwing me a curve ball.  And dealing with everything just puts me in a negative mind space sometimes.  However, I know that I'm too blessed to be letting these negative thoughts consume me.  I definitely don't want to go to bed with a negative mind set because it affects my moods in the morning.

So, my plan is the focus on the positives of each day before I close my eyes at night and to wake up mediate on my quote above.



What's one challenge that you want to overcome this upcoming week?

  1. It's so hard to get on a positive note when you get not so good news waiting for you in the mornings but I am learning that I can still turn my day around and find something good in it. Good luck on your goals I tried the exercising one didn't make it through.

    1. Yes, getting bad news in the morning does make it hard to have a positive start to the day. I always tell people don't give me bad news first thing in the morning or late at night unless it's about my husband because chances are if it's something to do with the kids I already know since they're with me 24/7. But making lemonade out of lemons is what life is about. We don't have to stay under the rain cloud all day.

  2. I love your goals! I especially love the one about starting and ending the day on a positive note. I've started taking a few minutes for myself every morning before I attack the rest of my day, and it makes all the difference! :)

    1. I agree. Those first few moments after you wake up in the morning are everything. It's very essential to start off on the right foot.
