These past few weeks I have seen a lot of post on New Years Resolutions. Some have been goals for Blogs or weight loss or working out or making more time for God. Each post unique to each blogger.
For this blogger I found myself ending the year in a tail spin emotionally and physically. My over stress syndrome was in full effect, (I know this because I over reacted to something very small,) which throws everything off.
Oh there are many different excuses for the cause of this; Lilly was sick to long, One to many stresses, the stress of the Christmas season and so many more.
The why is actually more simple than that.
I stopped taking care of myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Over the years I have picked up tricks to keep me off anti-depressant and keep myself healthy. In the past year I have let every single one of them slip big time.
For me this year is about getting back on track. As in getting myself lifestyle back to being healthy. I know the tools because I have done them in the past with success. It’s just time to dust them off.
Project 365 By Time Warp Wife. I have Darlene’s post emailed to me. When I got the announcement of the launch of Project 365 I remember thinking, “This might be what I need.” Than on January 5, 2015 I clicked onto Time Warp Wife and felt like Darlene was speaking to me. The thing I like is I’m not counting food points, or keeping to a fitness regiment.
It’s a point a day for accomplishing your goal!
This is important for me because a lot of “systems” are too overwhelming for me. I need simplicity. I love the FB support group that I joined too!
I Keep track of things in my journal and set it up like my prayer journal with stickers, different coloured pens and I stick motivation things in it. I have 3 Key areas that I want to focus on: Eating Healthy, exercise, and Bible Time.
Good Morning Girls Exodus Study Right now I need a bible plan that is everyday and consistent. I found that with the Exodus Study at Women Living Well. Courtney host every Monday a post on Exodus and you can get all your materials on the blog. I signed up for an email study group and I am very glad I did. It hold me accountable to sticking with the study!
Eating Healthy You can’t turn on a TV, the internet or the radio without hearing some kind of advertisement for losing weight right. Oh there are protein plans, point plans, and so much more out there to choose from. None of those really work for me.
Because I have PCOS and have issues with insulin resistance.
I am watching when I eat my starches, (try not to eat any past noon,) eating cinnamon first thing in the morning, watching my carbs and watching my sugar in take.
Basically eating for my hormones.
Each of these are simple but will change my life. Each of these steps will make a healthier me! What about you? What steps are you taking to make things healthier for you?
