Part 1 - My word of the year for 2017 is BELIEVE. Somewhere along the line in 2016 I lost my belief in me, what I can do, who I can be. This year I will direct my actions into BELIEVING in myself. That will start with achieving my goals for the year and for our 5% Challenges.

"Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You got to keep going." ~ Chantal Sutherland
*******************************
For the 2017 Fall 5% Challenge, I am going back to my simple plan for the first Challenge in which I participated. Because my work schedule can be exhausting, I need to have a simple plan to stay on track. So, here's...

The Plan:
1. Eat 3 smaller meals a day - a large breakfast, smaller lunch & dinner, and 2 healthy snacks in the day.
2. Exercise 5 days per week, total of 30 minutes a day.
3. My first 10 minutes of the day (after feeding Katie) will be spent in meditation or silence.
5. Keep healthy snacks on hand.

This is my 2017 Fall 5% Challenge Plan.

    The one thing i will do this week is be more thankful and less stressful. I will do my best to watch what i eat so, I can I will enjoy my Thanksgiving dinner and not stress about what to eat or not eat just enjoy the time with family and friends. I am telling myself 1 meal can't mess up the whole week if I stay focused all the rest. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
