Hello there, readers. Here we go again. I don’t know about you, but the year 2018 seemed to be on a race to get to the finish line. Wasn’t it just yesterday when we were ringing in “18, “and now it’s history.
Who out there has resolutions for 2019? How many have already broken them? How many of you have at the top of the list something to do with “diet?” I heard on the news that approximately 80% of us are stressing over losing weight.
In the past couple of years, I’ve lost more than 35 pounds. Someone asked me, “how did you lose all that weight?” My response was, “Well, I think it was the heart attack that got my attention.” That’s a bit extreme, so during this year, we can explore what’s worked for me and also for you. Keep in mind, there doesn’t appear to be a “one-size-fits-all” diet out there!
I’m thinking about a new Vision Board. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a collage of words, pictures, and aspirations for the coming year. Once put together, it should be placed in a prominent place as a reminder of what you wish to gravitate towards. As opposed to a “New Year’s Resolution,” this adds greater intent and resolve.
I plan to spend much more time writing…both on my blog and other venues. Hopefully, I’ll be posting weekly, and plan to spend more time on health and wellness. That being said, I’ve embarked on a “Dry January” challenge, the purpose is to enhance your health. It is said when doing this you are more focused, your skin (the largest organ of the body) is healthier, and you sleep better.
Those of you who know me well, are aware I love my wine! I’ve written before, that I was born in Milwaukee, raised in Chicago, but grew up in the Bay area of California — next door to the wine country!
So here I am, with no wine in the house. As I write this, we are only on day 7, and I can say I’m more focused. Once the challenge is completed, I’ll let you know my results.
I’m excited about the prospect of 2019. Until my next post, have a great week and keep the “Happy” in your days!
