Five On Friday

8:27:00 AM

If you've been reading my blog lately then you have learned that I am trying to amp up the traffic flow and by doing so I have decided to take part in a little Friday fun.  Every Friday I will post 5 things...  they may be design tips or a wrap up of the week about our life as a Nagy.

The other week I was rolling through the channels and saw Dr. Oz had announced that this month was going to be called Jan-YOU-ary.  Get it?  It was all about a better you for the New Year.

So since the clock rotated into the year of 2014, I have been trying 5 new things to a better me.  Life is lived better when you feel good.

Five Ways to a Better Me...

1.  Being more intentional with the Lord.  Instead of just stumbling upon extra time, I am making time.

2.  Running and Walking.
This has been a journey of off and on, ups and downs, but I am eager to get back at it.

3.  Eating my veggies.  I am trying to drink my way to health, one gross glass at a time (once a day).  This one in particular was disgusting.  I am not a whisky drinker, nor have I ever been, but I imagine that it would have made this taste a lot better.

4.  Be less stressed and hard on myself about homeschool.  Being a mom is hard, but then wearing the teacher cap at the same time is sometimes overwhelming.
(you can read about one of my overwhelming days here.)
 I am trying to go with the flow more and realize that my classroom will not look like everyone else's.

5.  Brush my teeth daily.  Don't judge.  I know its gross, but try telling me that after a long day of being pulled in a thousand directions and I will tell you to hush and go straight to bed and not care one bit about my teeth.  However, 2014 is a new year and time for some new pearly whites.  
My husband is the most happy about this one.
(I will not give you a picture of this.  just sayin.)


What are some ways that you are bettering yourself this year?
