Part 1 - My 2018 Word of the Year is PEACE.

So many factors affect my quality of life. Long work hours, anxiety over so many things, fear, unhealthy habits, negative energy in which I allow myself to get caught are among them. Being right is another. I will work on creating some affirmations that will help guide me and remind me that my goal is to be peaceful. The first affirmation that comes to mind is:

Be right or be peaceful.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales
*******************************
For the 2018 Winter 5% Challenge, I am going back to a simple plan. 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 a large breakfast, smaller lunch & dinner, and 2 healthy snacks in the day.
2. Exercise minimum of 30 minutes for 6 days, alternating Qi Gong, chair yoga, strength training or a combo.
3. My first 10 minutes of the day (after feeding Katie) will be spent in meditation, prayer or silence.
5. Track this activity daily.

This is my 2018 Winter 5% Challenge Plan.

    I have been left sitting in a restaurant while my husband went on out to wait for me, but I enjoyed the rest of my meal.

    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
