It's a new season, time for a fresh perspective. I have had some success this year (Whole30, 15 lb weight loss), but some setbacks as well (back injury). I am going to take this chance to really make positive changes in my life.

I am going to be intentional with my goals. I have areas in my life that need attention to live my best life. I am going to work on each of these areas:

Healthy Living:
Lose 75# to each goal of 155
5% Challenges throughout the year
Spark daily
Track all food and water
Weigh in weekly

Daily 15 minutes activity
Cardio 30 minutes, 3x week
Strength 2x week
Walking/Swimming/Biking/Hiking/Bowling for fun

8+ glasses of water daily
Stay within calorie range
More lean protein
More fruits and veggies
Watch my sodium intake
Limit snacking and emotional eating
Intermittent fasting (10-12 hour window)

Get up before the kids and have consistent quiet time
Bible reading daily
Journal daily
Complete Bible studies following Good Morning Girls
Consistent church attendance

Monthly decluttering/organizing projects (Clutter Free 4 Life program)
Financial Peace University with Hubby
Put routines in place for cleaning
Meal plan weekly

Use my planner everyday
Possible part time job
Read 20+ non-fiction books
Grow deeper friendships
Take online courses

It will be a process, I know that. I am not going to beat myself up if I don't get everything done on a particular day. Grace will be the word of the day. I want it to be a well rounded program that touches the whole person, not just random goals. All the areas work together, so I believe it will be doable.

I have some advantages to make these goals achievable. With the kids in school, I have the time to work on my goals. I live in a community with a walking trail and a fitness center with a pool. I have an encouraging Hubby who pushes me to be my best, including getting up at 4 am with me to hit the fitness center.

At the end of 2019, I pray that God will have led me and used me for His will in my life. I pray for His blessing on my list of goals, trusting in His strength, His wisdom, and His timing.

With God all things are possible...

    One of the great moments in life is realizing that two weeks ago your body couldn't do
    What it just did Unknown

    Exercise is like mouthwash. If you can feel the burn, it’s working!

    With your diet, don't dawdle -- if you don't want to waddle!"

    Some days I just need to stop and congratulate myself on how far I come.
    I need to rejoice in the progress I have made
    Everyone has setbacks. This is a normal part of every type of adventure

    CHANGE: Don’t just talk about it, go out there and do it.

    Good habits are as addictive as bad habits but much more rewarding
    something we need to remember is it takes at least 2 weeks to get a habit in place for me it takes much longer to correct a bad but its not impossible go

    Nothing is over until I stop trying we have our good times on the trail and bad times on trail but never give up on the our journey

    The past is a ghost, the future a dream. All we ever have is now. –Bill Cosby

    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.” Mary Anne Radmacher

    remember we did not get over weight over night so why do we expect it to come off over night.
