#11 – Strengthen My Weaknesses

New Habit #11 brings us to the first week in June; there’s no better time than to work on strengthening your weaknesses. One big weakness of mine is the regimen of doing a workout every day.  As I’ve mentioned in past posts I’m not a fan of the scheduled workout or even going to a gym,… Continue reading #11 – Strengthen My Weaknesses

#10 – Changing Your Thinking Can Change Your Life

My best friend Beth shared this with me several years ago and it pops into my mind often, “If you always think they way you always thought, then you’ll always get what you always got.” This is true. So many people want things to change yet they continue to do things as they always have… Continue reading #10 – Changing Your Thinking Can Change Your Life

Habit #8 – Yoga Daily

I began practicing yoga a few years ago and while I don’t take a lesson as often as I’d like, I have enough yoga to be able to practice at home daily. After a yoga lesson I always feel calm, renewed and free from negativity. New Habit # 8 is to practice yoga daily. Yoga… Continue reading Habit #8 – Yoga Daily

Habit # 7 – One plate is enough

I’m still working on #6, reviewing and doing 1-5 as well as an added habit #7, one plate per meal. I am a huge fan of going back for seconds especially if the food tastes good and fresh. I justify my actions by saying it’s healthy, it’s all veggies or lean or whole grains or that… Continue reading Habit # 7 – One plate is enough

Habit #6 – Review & Do 1-5

Reviewing things you’ve learned or created is a healthy habit to practice. Often times we set out to do a particular thing but find ourselves halfway committed or falling in and out of practice with it. My intention for this year is to adopt 26 new and good habits and since I’m a little behind in… Continue reading Habit #6 – Review & Do 1-5

Habit # 5 – Get moving every hour

I used to stand up at work all day when I was cutting hair and I loved it; now that my work involves a lot of sitting at the desk I need to get up and move around. Sitting isn’t one of my favorite things to do so I make it a point to get up… Continue reading Habit # 5 – Get moving every hour

Habit #4 – Cycling

I decided that I need to get moving! Winter is sort of long and messy where I live so walking, cycling, hiking etc. outdoors is a challenge. I decided to invest in an inexpensive stationary bike that both of us (significant other) can use. We did a little research and chose the Schwinn A 10… Continue reading Habit #4 – Cycling

January 1, 2014 – My 1st New Habit

My first new habit of the year 2014 actually sounds quite simple but it isn’t always as easy as it seems. My habit will be to drink more water! Yup, that simple. While I typically drink plenty of water, I find myself drinking less when it’s cold outside. I opt for hot things like coffee &… Continue reading January 1, 2014 – My 1st New Habit
