12-Weeks to a Happier and Healthier Life | Weeks 5 & 6

I wish I had a grand update for this week but I don’t. I didn’t drink enough water, I did a total of about 70 minutes of barre3 (and that was only two days of actually working out) and I started The Orange Rhino Challenge but I’m back on day zero. So all those goals from last week are being moved to weeks 7 & 8. So let’s do this thing. 

Goals for Weeks 5 & 6 7&8:

  1. (Dietary Goal) Drink 64oz of water everyday. I had been drinking close to a gallon of water everyday for a few weeks but in the past two weeks I haven’t been filing my water jar as frequently as I should. So cheers to drinking more water.
  2. (Physical Goal) Do 10+ minutes of barre3 online each day. Let’s try this again. Anyone want to be my accountability partner?
  3. (Mental Goal) Read and start The Orange Rhino Challenge. Being a stay-at-home mom of two little ones can be rewarding and fun but also exhausting and frustrating (usually all in the same day). If you know me you know I have a bit of a fiery personality and while my goals is be a gentle and warm parent I have my moments where I can be short and lose my patience. The thing is I don’t want to be short or lose my patience. I want to be calm, warm and in control of my emotions. You can read more about the challenge here

To leave things on a positive note I attended The Hello Sessions and I just feel renewed. Ready to to take on all my goals and follow through with my projects. It was an amazing experience. So here’s to getting back on track on all accounts.

  1. Hi Lindsay! I have a question, what is barre3? I’ve been working on some personal fitness goals and have been struggling with my body (and my mentality toward it) since I had my son last summer. I work with a trainer right now, twice a week, but am also implementing other forms of exercise during the week. The key for me to stay motivated is shorter workouts–I have to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel 🙂 Hope you are well! If you ever want to get together to talk blogging, fitness, or babies, I’d love to!

    • barre3 is like a combination of yoga, pilates and ballet. It works basically all muscle areas to make your stronger and leaner. I have been doing barre3 of and on for the last 6 months and every time I get in a great workout even if it is only a 10 minute one. I mean I seriously do 10 minutes and I’m sweating and am sore the next day that’s how good the workout is. It’s a minimal time, maximum effort type of workout. I mostly do online and they have 10-60 minute videos.

      And yes let’s get together soon!
