Making 2018 the best it can be
Friday, December 29, 2017
With too much time away from Sparking, eating healthy and regular exercise, I am making a commitment to getting back on right track.
After a scare with high blood pressure, and not wanting to continue on prescribed medicine, Mike researched natural ways to bring the numbers down to a normal range. He has done an amazing job, and his numbers are in the normal range (he checks his blood pressure a couple times a day now). Together, we are working on meal plans, exercise we can do together, and growing more of our own vegetables.
We planted a garden last year but the deer ate most of it. Plans are underway to secure the perimeters better. We also plan on a few smaller garden plots closer to the house. With all the deer tracks we are seeing in the snow, those too will need secure fencing.
One of my Spark Friends PCOH051610 has come up with her own plan for the new year. I like that idea, and have jotted down a few goals for myself (and, yes, I am coping some of her goals):
1. Plan ahead – both meals and exercise.
2. Get back to walking daily.
3. Eat more veggies – bring them to work to snack on.
4. Read more.
5. Spend more quality time with Mike and my sons.
6. Take at least one long trip to visit relatives and friends.
7. Get more massages.
8. Work on my mental health.
9. Get my house organized
10. Laugh more and worry less.
My wish for all of you is that 2018 brings you happiness, good health and new adventures!
