This year I've learnt that one week is rather predictable. One month... not so much.

Our priorities are always shifting, so we need to be flexible too.

I find 8 - 12 week challenges are great for single pointed focus - ie. a fitness or diet overhaul - because it takes time to absorb new information and establish new habits.

However after months of shifting my awareness and focus from one foundation to the next I've arrived at a place where I'm quite comfortable and happy to cruise.

When do I feel my best? When my foundations are solid.

My hack for keeping them in check?


Grab a pen and paper (or a whiteboard marker and a mirror :p) and write out your goals for the week for the following headings.

I'll include some of mine as examples.


  • In bed by 9:30pm
  • Aim to be asleep by 10pm
  • 7-8hrs sleep


  • Meals + snacks prepared
  • Allowed max. of 3 meals out (already had 2 and it's Monday pm damn!)


  • 4 weights sessions
  • 1 Get Low dance class
  • At least 2 surfs
  • 3 Get Bendy stretch sessions min. of 20mins


  • Sunrise at the beach every morning


  • Dust + clean bedroom fan
  • Wash + vacuum car


I am...
A list of 'I am statements' that are relevant to what you're going through.
I like to write a list of these each Monday (usually in whiteboard marker on my wardrobe / ensuite mirror). They are effective little pick-me-ups and can instantly transform our thought patterns.

  • I am attentive
  • I am calm
  • I am rested
  • I am inspired
  • I am ready
  • I am letting go
  • I am strong
  • I am beautiful
  • I am loved

Only you will know what I am statements are relevant to you. Take a moment to recognise what you may need more of.

And that's it!

Feel free to add more categories though!

I'd love to hear how you go.

Have an awesome week :D
