Simple Start 7 Days Recap with Weight Watchers #lovehealthyme #wwsponsored

My week has been filled with aha! moments.  I spent the last seven days stepping back from the grind of my fast paced life and dedicated my days to a simple start.  It’s time I retake what is mine; happiness and health!

I wrote this blog post as part of a movement by Weight Watchers to encourage people to remember that loving yourself starts with taking care of your health everyday. Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own.

I started my week by taking accountability for what I wanted.  A serious overhaul of where I want to be and taking accountability for how I got here.  Then came the work, making sure I follow through with activities that will help me be a better version of myself.

My first task for the past week is getting a full 8 hours of sleep.  Making sure to get to bed early and more importantly going to bed with tasks done that will make the early morning simple.  Preparing for the next day is my biggest change.  Having backpacks ready, outfits laid out, jackets found and shoes not misplaced.

My second task, make a healthy meal plan.  I am using the Weight Watchers Online plan to gather recipes, find restaurant meals that work for my goals, and create a simple start.  Having a family dinner time has been our favorite part of this weeks experience.  Meal time is so much more enjoyable when we have a family dinner together.  Don’t forget snacks, simple apple slices, turkey jerky and banana chips have so much more stock than a handful of Valentine’s candy.  Yes, you! Don’t buy another 80% off bag of Valentine’s candy!

Daily errands have turned into exercise opportunities.  Parking the car in a farther parking spot makes for a great walking exercise.  Choosing the stairs instead of the elevator is another great way to get those steps in.  If you use a step counter like I do, you will appreciate taking the long way.  It has never felt so rewarding.

Another important job is to take time for myself each day.  After my husband is home and settled, I have started taking a minimum of 30 minutes to decompress from being a work at home mom.  A long shower without the kiddos rushing me to get them a snack does wonders.  A little alone time on the porch to read for thirty minutes.  A trip to the gym solo to decompress and walk on the treadmill with my headphones blasting is my favorite.

And last but certainly not least, reward yourself after a long week.  A trip to target for a few treasures does a psyche good (stay within the budget, though).  A manicure even if you can’t splurge and hit the nail salon can be just as rewarding if you just carve out that alone time and have a little DIY session.
