Realistic November Goals

Friday, November 01, 2013

My goals for November are not so much focused on dropping weight (that will happen as a natural result) as it is for stabilizing my health:

Focus #1: Physically, by continuing acupuncture treatments and using the 2 ViniYoga dvds (strengthening the upper back/neck/shoulders and lower back/hips/sacrum) so I can stay (relatively) pain-free! I want to make this a part of my daily routine just like brushing and flossing my teeth. It's that important.

Focus #2: Improving my diet by adding more freggies and whole foods as well as the a herbal routine to help stabilize my gut (IBS/diverticulitis) that I started Nov 1.

Focus #3: Find balance in my spiritual/emotional well being by practicing the things (relaxation/prayer) I have been researching these past few months. Especially focusing on the way I relate to stress. This is an ongoing process that I have been making a huge focus this past year. No doubt I'll be getting a chance to 'practice' more as the holidays draw near!!!

With these things in place, I am looking forward to this being the best Christmas ever.

    I like your goals, but I'm not sure what you are referring to when you mention your "herbal" routine. I could use some help with that IBS thing emoticon

As I continue to clear my emotional plate ( another thing checked off yesterday, Saturday11/9) I am sooo looking forward to 2014. I know that we aren't suppose to wish the days away, but it is going to be a much less stressful year for me. I know you and I have talked many times about this. We're just too little peas in a pod! Have you tried journaling for emotional balance?

    Years ago, my mom had acupuncture needles embedded in her ear lobes and temples to lose weight. Worked at the time, and she kept it off for years. Sometimes I'm tempted to check that out for myself.
