Along with trying to enjoy the moments with my 3 boys (which somedays are much tougher to enjoy the chaos and crazy then others) I have started focusing on feeding the family healthier home cooked meals again. We even started juicing again. I love the fresh juice as does my husband and the little 2 boys. The oldest tends to be pickier and anything with garlic or ginger he never seems to finish. I have also tried focusing on the little things that make our day to day life special, whether it was a moment during the day, something one of them said, something we did as a family I have started "journaling" it in my new Erin Condren Life Planner . I use the monthly pages for our events. (in reality as a family we are not that busy and I don't write down things like "swim lessons" or any other reoccurring event and I do not use it to log miles since I have my Commitment Day Journal for that) Then I use the weekly/daily pages to write the little things throughout the day. It is nice to take 5 minutes throughout the day and reflect or sometime the 20 minutes in the evening to just think about our day. What I have learned and recognized so far after doing this the last few weeks is that even when it appears to be the most awful day there is always something to be thankful for and a happy moment that was/is worth remembering.

So here is to a new month and back on track with the blogging (since I got away from actually writing anything when I discovered how fun Instagram is)
(Full disclosure: A friend recommended the Run Less Run Faster Furman First Method to me last year after he used it to help him Boston Qualify. I did purchase and read the book all on my own. I also purchased the Erin Condren Life Planner after it was recommended by several friends and I do not regret it one bit! It's a great planner!)
