How Can I Stop My Procrastination?

How Can I Stop My Procrastination?
A few months ago I was doing GREAT! I had consistency and was showing up in ALL the places, our home was running pretty smoothly and homeschool was moving along at a nice pace. I had routines that were working great for all of us and I was on top of the world. Until I wasn’t. In a week I lost all that momentum and am still working through this episode of procrastination. 

So here is the thing, sometimes I think we get good at doing all the things and then we throw a wrench in it just because we are making positive progress. I don’t mean to say we throw ourselves under the bus but yet that is kind of what happens, like all of a sudden we want the chaos and struggle that we had before back. Weird I know but if you know then you know and you are following me, right? This is why I’m sharing this with you because procrastination is a form of self-sabotage and we can learn to move past it with some easy, time-tested skills that we all possess already.

Why Does Labor Keep Starting and Stopping?

Why Does Labor Keep Starting and Stopping?

It doesn’t help that I have some deadlines looming and have a laundry list of things that need to get done in the next few weeks either.


As I sit writing this now I am kind of wondering if this may be connected to any limiting beliefs I may have surrounding what these next few weeks and what I’m working on are going to bring to my life. You know like that.....

Pregnancy and weight gain….

Pregnancy and weight gain….

Now I had not been eating bread for about 6 months when I found out I was pregnant and I validated those cravings as “my baby wanted it”, we all know that probably isn’t true. Needless to say I gained quite a bit of weight right off the bat and my OBGYN was not shy in pointing that out.
