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
*******************************
Although I started the Winter & Spring Challenges with gusto, I somehow lost my momentum. For the Summer 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 meals a day.
2. Exercise 4 days per week
3. Spending time with friends not affiliated with work.
4. 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 Summer 5% Challenge Plan.

    SO good to see you!!! I hope you're doing well. BTW... my dad spent much of his later years writing about Camille Pissarro. :-) He wrote a biography on him and several articles as follow-up. How are you???

    I think we are finally done with the white stuff, sure hope so. Today is beautiful, sun and heading towards the 60's and by Monday 70, then we have rain coming in and then will be down in the mid 50's, better than snow. It's a nice day for GD's baby shower.

    So sorry John lost his fur baby.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Hugs,
    Shirl
