New Year, New Rules


I am not sure if anyone else woke up in January with a bit of a fire under their seat, but that has certainly been the case for me. I like resolutions and  I have always tried to theme my years. It's a little easier when you say, this is the year I am going to focus on my career, or this is the year I am going to take the trip. 2018 is the year I focus on me. The last few years have been a little more challenging than I would have liked. I made some huge changes last year, and this year it's paying off with less stress and a fresh perspective. In general, I think I suffer from what a lot of people suffer from, in particular, the "I come last" syndrome. And I don't even think it's intentional. There are only so many hours in a day, and sometimes there just aren't any left. for me. But, I have come to the conclusion, based on the extra pounds that are impossible to lose, and some of the aches and pains I feel in the morning, that if this year isn't the year of me, I could be setting myself up for a slow decline in my health.  I am pretty sure the kids are going to be alright if I go to Yoga every night, and the emails are still going to be there if I take a real lunch, and also no one will miss me if I shut down my phone for 8pm. So I am clearing my schedule and going to build in a lot of time for me.

It's a New Year, and I have got New Rules. 

1) Exercise Every Day    2) Plan meals better    3) Get lots of sleep    4) Go to the doctor

I am kind of thrilled.
Happy New Year Friends!
