As we celebrated the New Year and looked back at how fast 2018 went, is just an eye opener. I know that some of us want to start the new year fresh. My #1 priority for the new year is getting more organized, productive and setting goals. I can’t stand the whole new year’s resolution list, I preferred setting goals that I know it will get accomplished. I feel that when you set goals, it gets more accomplished than a resolution list.
I use to be one of those girls that’ll make a resolution list which literally lasted me three weeks tops. Like many of us, we lose interest in our so call resolution list. I will share tips on How to start your fitness goals for the new year to help you get a kick start.
First thing I do get a Planner, I’m old school and I need to physically write all my agenda, to do list, and appointments. Is the only way I can stay focus and on top of all daily agenda. I’m in LOVE with The Happy Planner, this was the best investments I ever made because you can customize by adding fillers to your everyday needs. I was first introduced to The Happy Planner by a co-worker, she saw how I would use the free union calendar book and suggested I get a more productive planner. As a busy mom, I needed more than just a union calendar book.
What I love about The Happy Planner is not only a calendar but you can create a part journal. There are cute fillers such as stickers, To do list, notes and much more where you can keep track of deadlines and meetings. The fillers have positive messages for monthly motivation. There are also fitness fillers, to keep track of your fitness journey.
Inserts For Your Happy Planner
Fitness and Health
As we said goodbye to 2018, for some of us health & fitness is on top of our “ Resolution” list. We all see it, how aggressively crowded the gym is the first two weeks in January. But during the last week and first week in February the crowd start dying down and once March rolls in the gym is back to normal. For those that made a resolution list, you want to do so much at once and quickly find yourself losing motivation. Once you lose motivation you are back to where you first started still making a list. Setting goals, you’ll feel that you are achieving more by picking the right actions. It will keep you motivated because all the effort you’re putting into achieving your goal. As a busy mom, we sure would love to make time for the gym, but let’s face it is easier said than done. For some of us is very difficult to even attempt to join and actually go to the gym. Therefore you need you set your fitness goals based on your lifestyle. Here are a few tips;
- Write down your fitness goals on what you want to achieve.
- Be patience, Take your time to achieve your fitness goals. (remember it’s not going to happen overnight) but don’t give up. Life will throw you curve balls that you will easily find yourself giving up but don’t.
- Have a fitness backup plan, as I call it. Whether you get stuck at work you feel too tired to workout and to go to the gym you’ll have a backup plan to make up for the workout.
If you are a busy mom, and can’t or don’t want to do the gym membership but is serious about getting fit there are ways you can achieve your fitness goal.
I’m a frequent gym member but is only because at work we have a gym. But I was one of those that as soon as it was January 1, hit I enrolled in a gym to find myself a few months down not going and stuck with a membership contract. If you can’t commit to the gym now, then think about whether is worth paying a gym membership. Fitness Apps are a way to go if you can’t commit to a monthly gym membership. I listed the three Fitness apps I used and love.

Adding supplements to improve your weight loss in your daily intake, will help you become the best version of yourself but in a smart and efficient way. Supplements can give you that extra edge to burn fat, muscle recovery and gain lean muscle. But you have to use the one that work best for you and your body. I buy all ,y supplements from Protein powder to vitamins at Bodybuilding.com, they are very efficient, budget friendly and once you place your order your takes them a day to get it together and they ship it out the next day. You don’t wait weeks for your orders.

Idealfit is a supplements site for women. I ‘ve used some of their products and I have no complaints, their protein shakes taste amazing they do contain soy, so before purchasing any of these product make sure to read the nutrition facts.
1. Get into a healthy nutrition plan, if you are going to do Keto or Paleo, please do the research on what it is about. I’ve seen many people jump into a diet and is not for them and they easily give up.
2. I know some of us are a bit stubborn in seeing a doctor, boo is about that time. If you don’t see a doctor annually, go see one. I hate to say this but we live in such a toxic world than when it comes to illness it doesn’t discriminate by age, gender or ethnicity. So go schedule your annual, physical, ob-gyn, and mammogram appointment. Health comes first. A great place to search for doctors in all fields is ZocDoc.
3. As a busy mom, is hard to get the healthy eating down pack because we might not have the time to hit the organic market or for some can be too far. If online shopping works for you, then Thrive Market and Butcher Box is for you.
Before I moved, I was very close to Cotsco, Wholefoods, and Bj’s so it was very convenient to buy organic and big bulk. Where I’m at now it’s very difficult to get to these stores so right now shopping online for some organic products works for me.
Thrive Market charges a membership fee of $59.95 per year, just like Bj’s and Cotsco once you sign up it comes with a 30 days trial when you make your first purchase.

Meal Prep Gear
Choosing the right lunch bag can be tricky is finding the right size that will meet your health and fitness lifestyle. I have 2 bags from 6 Pack Fitness and I absolutely love. I can fit all my meals, my shaker bottle, my protein powder dispenser, and vitamins. These bags are very durable and so are their food containers. They don’t leak and keeps food nice and tight. 6 Pack Fitness, have a variety of small to large meal prep bags and food containers.
When the new year hits, I just love hitting the stores for new fitness gear. these are some of the great places to shop from budget-friendly to a bit pricey. But they are good workout gear to fit your fitness needs. Tj Maxx is #1, place to shop for budget-friendly workout gear. I wear baseball caps to workout and whenever I get a new one I look for a specific color I shop at Lululemon, Nike , YogaClub,GAP, Old Navy, Forever21, Reebok and Muscle Club Apparel
