A New Year, A New Start

A Day in the Life Family Health & Fitness Kids Parenting Things We Love

new year

I really can’t believe that in just over a week’s time, it will be a new year. This year came and went so fast.

I’m never one to make new years resolutions, but I do like to look back on the previous year and reflect a little.

2017 was a big year of change for me. I had left a full time role working with a company, and decided to start my own business. I didn’t realize just how much work and effort it takes to grow a business, let alone grow myself.

With the help of my family, some mentors, and some courses, I am on my way…there is still a LONG way to go, but I keep telling myself that no matter how hard it gets, to keep trying.

So of course with that, comes thoughts of what I want for myself for 2018.

Plan! I want to be able to make the most out of my days and weeks and ensure I am getting the work I need done, done.

Fitness! I want to stick to my fitness routine working out 4 days a week at a minimum.

Home life! I want to keep things on track in the home; the kids, the schedules, the meals, the everything!

Diet! I want to keep up my flexible dieting lifestyle and keep up with the rewards I had in 2017.

Finally, I just want to keep my sh*t together! As a work at home mom of two young boys, life is constantly on the go. Keeping up with everything can be hard.

So there you have it. A small list, but a list of things that are so important to me.

Thanks to our friends at Amazon.ca, they have a wide selection products to help me keep up with everything I need to make my 2018 successful.

Here are my top 5 choices to start the New Year:

If I write it down, I will do it. Every day I will make a to do list and plan my week. Now lets just hope I can follow it!

Amazon Echo

new yearHow great would it be if I could just ask Alexa for help? Alexa can make calls, set alarms and timers, ask questions, check your calendar, manage to-do and shopping lists, control smart home devices, and more—instantly…this could be a huge help!!

I try to get to the fitness studio at least 4 times a week. But on days that I don’t, a Fitbit would be great so I can still stay on track of my daily fitness goals!

Digital Kitchen Scalenew yearOne of the things that are a must to balance a flexible dieting lifestyle is a kitchen scale. Not only do you have to plan your meals, but you need to weigh/measure everything to stick to your daily macros. My current one is on its last leg, so a new one it is!

Get Your Sh*t Together

new year

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am a big worrier and an over thinker. As a result, I think of the “what-if’s” when really I should just be focusing on the now. A book like this to help me finish what I need to do and start doing what I want to do without worrying about what I should be doing, should definitely help me get my sh*t together!!

These are just a few of the many things I think I might benefit from in the new year. So for now, I’ll stick with these goals and see what happens!

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
