I am going to have a slow start. I got a bug that will not let me go.
The Spectrum eating plan 7 days a week with a treat on Sunday.Hubby has a heart problem that they can not fix and I was told this would keep him the healthiest.
walking after work 6 days a week
meditation and Qigong to get my muscles back in shape.
Then start an exercise program.

I'm going to try and relax a bit more. I stress out over way too many things that I can't change. Stress = overeating, irritability, lost sleep, fatigue, and all sorts of things that aren't going to help me on my journey towards better health.

Happy New Year fellow frugalists!

Last year, my biggest commitment was to go to church every Sunday; I only missed two services - once due to weather and once due to travel. This year, that commitment will continue, along with a further resolve to help that church improve and grow.

Unfortunately, I will also have to commit to finding work, as I lost my biggest -and only- client (I am self-employed so don't get any unemployment benefits). This will be my BIGGEST challenge for the year.

The good thing about that is that it will keep me as frugal as ever - making a dollar stretch and milking every last drop out of whatever I have.

And, I am also committed to getting to that lower weight on the scale. A resolution for January and February is to give up eating dessert after dinner (and no, I don't mean I will eat them after lunch) as a way to jump start that weight loss. I also resolve to really pay attention again to my portion sizes (I've been slacking off) and to eliminate non-essential food items - like potato chips- from my diet .

My goal will be to make it halfway down my weight ticker. If I pose a smaller challenge to myself, I'm thinking I'll have more motivation to beat it emoticon

To lose 15 more pounds and to tighten all my loose flab..... emoticon

Hope all of you have a healthy and successful new year!


But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

My number 1 resolution is to make time for ME. Sounds selfish, but I tend to put myself last and that isn't working so going to have to move up the list so I can take care of everyone else (hubby, Dad, Abbie)! I think if I do that then everything else should fall into place.

I am working on being more simple in all that is around me, work, home etc.

Dropping another 50 pounds.
Adding more movement each week.
De-cluttering my home!
Drink 3-4 liters of water a day (which is about 102 ozs, recommended by my kidney doctor)

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.
