Sometimes I get overwhelmed after getting up getting the kids to school then coming home to housework. So I make it a goal that if I am going to do house work that day, to pick one thing and do that only. Like cleaning the bathroom. Its less overwhelming to tackle one thing then have to do everything. :)

Start with ONE goal....commit to it religiously, when you feel you accomplished that goal well enough to have made that goal a habit......then start a new one. Soon you will be accomplishing great things.
Start a fresh journal with the opening page being what you expect of yourself and what goal you'd like to accomplish during the duration of this notebook. I like to use notebooks that aren't too thick, so I can start a new one more often. 41 The goals can be as simple as you like. One thing you can accomplish on a daily or weekly basis that will take you towards being the best you can be.
I sit down every Sunday alone and I re-comment to my weight loss goals and challenges. I find new races to enter, I look at my routines via my exercise journal and analyze if I need to increase what I am doing because I am bored or I just need to increase because my body has adjusted.
This helps me because I stay fresh, centered and motivated to do new things and have new goals accomplished week after week.
