Where It All Begins
Definitely going to work on losing weight. I am not sure which weight loss program I will use or if I will just use my own (which I have been very successful with in the past). But either way – I need to lose weight. I am not a person who cares about weight – I care about health. I have no desire to fit into the airbrushed image of perfection. I do have a desire to feel more healthy. No matter what I do for weight loss I track my progress with Lose It! So far I plan to use intermittent fasting!
Work on exercise. This is partly in conjunction with my weight loss but more because of my joint issues. I am 51 years old and my joint issues will only continue to get worse unless I make the time to exercise the important areas (all of them)… My shoulders and knees suffer greatly and exercise improves it all. Because I own four horses that need to be cared for on a daily basis – that automatically involves a great deal of exercise.
Sleep a little more. I do not get much sleep at all. It has always been a way of life for me. In my teens and twenties I held multiple jobs, one of which was almost always been third shift. I am not a kid anymore and the lack of sleep is definitely impacting my health.
Blog a little less. The only way the first three will be achieved is if I stop making the blogs such a major priority. I will not leave you all behind but there may be fewer giveaways and more writing. I need to devote more time to the above three items.
Drink a lot more – WATER. I do not drink alcohol except in very rare situations so that is definitely not what I am referring to. However, it is very well documented medically that I live in a state of perpetual dehydration. I definitely need to make more of an effort to resolve that problem.
Invest time in me. I want to get back to playing piano. I want to work on a photography course or two. I want to work on freelance opportunities. I want to work on graphic design. I want to work on photo editing. I want to work on becoming a life coach. So in 2018 I can bring you so much more and even greater things.
