12/19/19 Today I've decided that the only way I can improve my over all health is by what I think, eat, and activity.
Yesterday I was active, watched what I ate and meditated.
Today I put into action what I learned from meditation and it actually worked on two different occasions.

I'm joining the 5% Winter Challenge so I don't forget how easy it is to fall back into my old familiar habits. These 5% challenges help me stay on track and help me remember how important it is to stay focused, empowered and motivated. Even though I may not have a 5% weight lose, I learn something new every time I partake.

Joined the 5% Fall Challenge today. Yes, it's hard work!
No one said it will be easy, but a good support system helps with getting through another day. This is going to work for me, I'm staying on track and going to get this 5% off, then I'm going to get the next 5% off and so on.
