The Last 90 Days of 2021!

Last updated on: Published by: Recognizing Potential Coaching 0

Each quarter when I start a round of Back to Basics, I get really excited because as I’m coaching the group, I’m also participating in the lessons with my students. One of the things that we start with is goals. Where do we want to be in 90 days?

This last quarter hits a little differently for me. It’s a season that personally, I’m more excited for than I have been in about two years. As I was thinking about my goals for this last quarter, I kept thinking about what I really want to focus on. What would increase my success this quarter not only as a coach but as a wife, a mother and all the other hats I wear? 

For most of 2020, I was pregnant so while my health was a priority, it was more about my son and his health. I ate to give the baby the adequate nutrition he needed. He was born in November of last year and I’ve spent the last 11 months breastfeeding so all my nutrition has still been about him. I didn’t drink alcohol, didn’t take certain supplements or essential oils, avoided or increased certain foods. But now, he’s weaned himself and I finally feel like I have my body back to myself!! In all transparency, there’s a ridiculous amount of guilt and mind games that go with that as well that I don’t think is talked about near enough but maybe another day we’ll get into that.

I decided my focus is going to be on my health, for no other reason than it just being for me and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I have set my nightly regiment to include a concoction of oils that I use as a moisturizer to help with aging:
1 oz. roller bottle
5 drops frankincense
5 drops lavender
3 drops geranium
2 drops rose or rose hip oil
Fill the rest of the way with argan oil or grapeseed oil. 

I use the argan oil in the winter when my skin is a lot more dry, grapeseed for the months when I need something a little lighter. 

Put the roller filament on top and roll a generous amount on your face and decollete area. I like to use a jade roller or rose quartz roller over these areas as well. 

Before I was pregnant, I used to do a castor oil pack on my liver a couple times a week. I wouldn’t recommend doing this unless you’ve worked it out with a naturopathic dr. If you need one, I would absolutely recommend mine! She is the smartest person I’ve ever met and the most gifted doctor!! You can find her here. The castor oil packs on my liver gave me energy, helped my body detox better and improved my overall liver health! 

I drank tea every night before bed. I did HIIT workouts 3-4 times a week. Occassionally, I boxed. These are the things that I have missed so dearly and can’t wait to get back to. I can’t wait to see how I can transform with my students in the next 6 weeks! 

Of course, I have goals in the areas of spirituality, family and friends, career and fun as well but the important thing to remember when you’re setting your 90 day goals is that your main goal, the one that drives all others. It’s the one that should help set you up for success in all other areas of life. 

What’s your goal for the last 90 days of 2021? How are you going to set yourself up for success so you’re not looking back in October of 2022 saying “Man, I sure wish I would’ve started a year ago.”?

Back To School Madness?

Last updated on: Published by: Recognizing Potential Coaching 0

Anyone else feel like yesterday was May 24 and school was just letting out? Now we’re quickly sneaking up on August and the Back to School Displays are out? I don’t know about you but I’m not ready. 

We’ve had so much peace and enjoyment soaking up the sun, the moments with family and friends and the vacations that I’m not ready to go back to the madness that the school year usually brings. SO we aren’t. 

This year is going to look somewhat different than years past. 

Last year, January (after maternity leave) until about April, I constantly felt like I was juggling plates and dropping them as fast as they were stacking up. The harder I tried to keep them stacked and juggled, the harder they fell. Anyone else feel that way? 

Then I started two things that gave me back my sanity, helped my marriage thrive even more and helped me feel like I had my life together. 

1. I started saying NO. If someone asked me to do something and it didn’t align with my goals or helping myself or my family thrive, it had to be a no. This year, I’ll continuing this trend.

2. I got intentional and mastered the art of planning and preparation. Sounds like 3, but it goes together. I created two sheets. One for my husband and I to work through once a week that helped keep us accountable to each other, our goals and connect better as a couple. The other is for the whole family. It gets filled out over the weekend, hung on the fridge for all to see and reference and we live by it. The first row is for events- school, church, home, all of them. This is for kids to be involved with to see “oh, I have a soccer game on Thursday and a guitar lesson on Tuesday”. This helps them plan ahead as well. (Read: child, do not come at me on Wednesday night telling me you need your uniform washed. I will lose my marbles.)

The meal plan is the next row. I plan meals every Saturday, put in a grocery pick up order and do as much meal prepping on Sunday afternoon as I can. Sometimes, I’ll cook 2-3 meals at once so I don’t have to cook every single night. Since I’m already doing it, it doesn’t take much more time to add to what I’m already doing and it saves HOURS during the week. 

Last, the family chore row. This is secretly my favorite. Dusting, floors, bathrooms, laundry, all the big chores that take FOR-EV-ER are not my sole responsibility as the mom/wife. Everyone gets to help and it takes about 20 minutes to 1 hour to finish instead of 1-5 hours by yourself. I highly recommend this hack.

Mason will be involved in the things that truly bring him joy but I’m not forcing him to join things that don’t. Teacher’s gifts, holidays, vacations, everything is already on the calendar so that if it comes up later, I can ask- If it were really that important, wouldn’t I already have planned for it? If not, then I can ask the additional question “Is this an excited YES or is this a “I’m saying yes because I feel obligated so I’m changing my answer to an excited NO”? 

Also, at the beginning of every year, I have Mason write out his top 5 goals for this year. What does he want to be known for this year? How will he be a leader? What 3 things does he want to improve in? How does he plan to make them happen?

All this to say, these are just a few hacks that I started last year because it’s not the physical game that will wear you down. It’s the mental marathon that we’re about ready to start running and if you aren’t prepared, you’re gonna burn out real quick. 



P.S.- To get the family organizer and/or the relationship reflection sheet, email me at and tell me which one (or both) that you want and I will subscribe you to get my weekly newsletter and I’ll email you the ones you want. 🙂
