Is September the New January?


Your routine been anything but routine. Summer is just now ending. The kids are (or are not) going back to school. There's CoVid. And, oh yeah, there's CoVid. 

But, did you know that Fall is the PERFECT time to jump into your goals and resolutions?

No matter how your life used to look, how it looks right now is your reality. Maybe you are at home with the kids now or you work from home. Recognize that your lifestyle may have changed, but that doesn't mean your goals have to! You haven't changed.

NOW is the perfect time for you to take back control of your life. Looking for inspiration?

Be stronger
You are stronger than you know.

 Top Resolutions

Exercise more.

Help others.

Lose weight.

 So, How Do You Even Start?

Your Goal & Your Action Steps 


1. Set aside a set amount of time to first DEFINE your goal. Make this one sentence if possible with a WHAT? WHEN? HOW?

2. And, above all, know your WHY? WHY do you want this goal?

3. What items will you need? Get them.

4. How much time daily or weekly will you need?

5. What is a reasonable amount of time for you to reach your goal or make your goal a habit?

6. Remember, WRITE everything down, and look at your action plan often!



  1. Decide what you will do if AND WHEN you get off track?

Be honest with yourself and recognize why you haven’t already reached your goal/changed your lifestyle.

    2. In the past, what has been the one TRIGGER that has thwarted your efforts?

For example, if you want to lose weight, what has stopped you in the past? 

    3. There is always a who/what/when/how answer to your trigger. 

Maybe every evening everyone in your household has dessert, and it’s just habit have a bowl of ice cream, too. The time of day is your trigger. (Are you eating ice cream at 10AM or just in the evening?) You do it without even thinking and it is SO hard to NOT do what you are used to doing, because it has become a MINDLESS HABIT.

    4. Decide BEFORE you start how you will handle your trigger(s).

    5. Have someone you are accountable to, and make sure there is specific time that you hold yourself accountable to them, and, please, make sure it is someone who WANTS to see you succeed.

If you want more quality time with your family, set down with them and tell them why this is important to you. Tell them what you are thinking and get their input. If you want family time then make the goal a family affair!


When Working on Improving Yourself

Know you are going to get off track and life happenings are going to get in the way. Don’t make this an all or nothing kind of thing.  This is a new lifestyle for you. Creating a new way of life takes TIME and PATIENCE. 

Give yourself some grace! You’re human!





  1. Write it down.
  2. Define it.
  3. Prepare for the time commitment.
  4. Put a date to it.
  5. Know your triggers.
  6. Have an accountability partner.
  7. Give yourself grace.
