BALANCE - mind - body - spirit. That is what it is all about isn't it. This life is best lived if we can find a balance between our healthy minds, bodies and spirits. So for 2014 my word is BALANCE.
I know many ways for MIND balance, not that I am great at any of them but do practise some.
I journal, I art journal, I write gratitudes. I try to meditate and before I go to bed I do deep breathing and some times progressive muscle relaxation. If I can't sleep I do imagry meditation. So my other issue is worry.... stressful worry. but I am doing better at not letting it overtake my day. Yes it creeps in nearly daily and always after info or dealing with lawyer issues but I can't let this get the best of me. I have gained nearly 5 or more lbs since getting a lawyer on Nov 21. sigh. So this has to be beaten and know that she will help me but that doesn't mean I can't help myself.
BODY balance. I have a hard time being consistent here. I have a few ideas going on in my brain right now. Back to Basics. drink my water, move and eat clean and PROPER portions. Will I be able to do it as I truly feel I am a carb sugar addict. I do for me there is no just a bit, or moderation when it comes to toast and sweets. pasta, potatoes no prob.
The other is I did well when I was on the plan the natuopath suggested. Gluten sugar and dairy free. But found that so hard to keep on and ended up slowly getting worse and now am back to eating whatever, still not a ton of processed but too much not good stuff. So do I try that again, she said when I said that is hard and not sure if that is lifestyle - she said my family eats like that all the time.... you choose to make it a lifestyle. She is right. so do I.
the other is NO S. which Id id before but srayed. It is no sweets, no sugar no seconds on all days that dont have an S. so eat properlyl and clean on the weekdays and don't go nuts on the weekends but have a treat. hmmm makes sense and I didn't do too bad.
Any thoughts from those that know me... lol will be appreciated.
SPIRIT well I am more spiritual than religious, we have been burned by organized religion and not that keen on it. If I could find a small friendly church again I may go. But my spritual health is similar to my mind. Try to find a calm, peaceful inner sanctuary where I can go and just BE. talk to myself in a kind loving way. Also to have good family and friend time to make my life complete.
Now just to figure it all out and make a plan, a DO ABLE for a healthy lifetime plan. I have to get this life going, it is passing me by and I presume my knee surgery should be this summer I MUST get some wt. off before then.
I hope you can all find a plan you can work with for you and we will do great things in 2014.

Boy am getting the days mixed up with the holidays. Don't know why but seems holidays should be on weekends. But as long as I remember to go the dr, on Monday I will be fine! LOL
So had a nap for a bit, now fell less rested than before I went up to lay down. Also have heartburn and am trying to think of what I ate that made me feel rotten.Probably not enough healthy stuff and too much sugar, but really seems to be the chocolate. and lol as I wrote this dd brought in a small basket with goodies and choc covered bacon..... now immediate heatburn. lol
So now I guess I better make some supper for myself as hubby is making left overs for him. Going to be a quiet night and early evening. Hope you all had a great day and sleep well.

Good day after Christmas to you all. I slept very poorly, pain in my elbows,way low in my back, my hands ( which is new) and woke with headache. I didn't drink much but more than I used to as I rarely drink and had some wine, but it was localized behind one eye. oh well it is gone. We are going to sil for while. that will be low key.
Just called dil to wish her happy birthday, said you sound tired. Yea, that is what happens when you rush Thomas to the IWK ( childrens hosp) at 1:30 am. Apparently he has the croup. He wasn't able to catch his breath and said he was going to"frow up" so they took him to the bathroom where lol poor guy, stuck his head right in the toilet and promptly peed all over the floor which made him so upset. So they asked grampa who lives downstairs with grandma to come up and watch Eva. well he loves his grampa so tried to calm down and they got dressed got him out in the air and it helped. So hosp says croup but also gave him a magic colouring book so he was happy and grampa was there waiting when they got back. House full of tired, other than Eva and cousins that are staying downstairs. At least now they know incase he gets it more and or Eva gets it.
Yesterday was great, quieter, as my Christmas eve was PERFECT. I was so happy I was near tears. Those babies are so special. and having my 2 kids there also and dad was fine as were spouses. yesterday DD and hubby and dad came for supper. Turkey, ham and all the fixins. All turned out great and I had lots of help.
Only downfall was I felt sort of bad, next door, ( for those that read my blogs know next door means nuts!) came over with a top cut down past her breasts with her hand in front of herself asking for the stuff you put in sandwiches that you mix with eggs............. we said egg salad? yea can you put miracle whip or mayo. Said either one. oh. I have to add sugar to the mayo. Okay... still holding herself, I said can give you some miracle whip. I was busy doing veggies and stuff for supper, felt as if I should ask her for supper but knew I wanted low key and not crazy.... So I go back to cutting veggies and hubby is talking to her, as I go in I sort of laugh to myself as she has her hands away from her chest talking away to him, sees me and covers. I talk a few mins go back to cutting some veggies and back again same thing. What a fool. So I said to him when she finally left, felt as if I should invite her NO. good then cos I didnt want to . I wish she would get herself some help. dont think she is drinking now but still needs a lot of counselling which she says is EVIL. oh well.
SO we had a great dinner and enjoyed ourselves after. Dad went back down at 7, kids left 8 or so and by 9 I was ready for bed! whew. didnt go then went and sat with hubby but now I am so tired.
Hope you all had a great holiday too, however you chose to spend it! HUGS and now on to my birthday.......... sigh.
