My good bloggy friend Jia at Color Me UnTypical (and her friend The Girly Tomboy) have started a brand new weekly blog-hop called 'Time For You'. The idea of this blog-hop is to take a little bit of time out and post about the steps you are taking to get healthy and better yourself!
This week, I want to tell you what I want to do to better myself while we are taking time off from trying for a baby. If you did not see the post, we had been trying for a baby for 9 months after having a miscarriage in November of last year. We decided this month that I should go back on the pill, so that we can have a PROPER, real break from it all until further notice! The disappointment and worry month after month was not doing me any good and since starting the pill again, I have felt a load has been lifted!
While we are not trying here are some of the things I want to do before we start trying again. I will update on my progress on these goals each week!
GOAL 1: Get into a good habit of taking vitamins and folic acid. I was taking a mum-to-be vitamin until very recently. I figured that after the miscarriage as we were trying again from then, I should just keep taking it. After the months passed, I got less enthusiastic about taking them everyday, and plain just forgot!
GOAL 2: Lose a little bit of weight. I don't mean loads... just enough to feel happy and slim again. I lost some weight back in April, but have since put it all back on!
GOAL 3: Cut down on Coke! This one will be hard. I remember giving up before and I did so well... but then I crumbled.... Oh lovely Coke. There is half of a 2 litre bottle left in the fridge and then I aim to cut down.
GOAL 4: Take part in more activity. I go to Aqua-aerobics most Monday mornings and really enjoy it... I plan to start pilates this Tuesday and I am trying to find a yoga class. I enquired at the gym beside my house and found their prices incredibly reasonable so I think I may even be brave enough to join. The membership includes all classes and 5 personal trainer sessions!
I'm gonna leave it there! I don't want to give myself too many goals to start with! Hope you join in this great blog hop also :)
