On the Third Day

1) My first priority is a net weight loss of 10 lbs this year though if I get more I'll be a very happy girl. Following the various 30 day physical challenges below and continuing in my research of veganism should yield the above net loss by this time next year.

Brussels Sprouts, Grapefruit
Broccoli & Lemons
Kiwi & Green Peas
Lime & Avocado
Rhubarb & Celery
Blueberries & Spinach
Wall sit/ Squats
Eggplant & Plums
Body Weight Workout
Sweet Pepper & Cherries
Pears & Carrots
Cranberries & Beets
Apples & Kale
Resistance Bands/ Rebounder
Orange & Sweet Potato

2) Preserve enough food that come next winter I will not be dependent on trips to the grocery store for fruits and vegetables. This will require the purchases of a few pieces of equipment as well as space to put them and the preserved food.

3) Write a blog post at least once a week though I would prefer every day just cause I always seem to have a lot to say and this is a good space for that

4) Cut current time in front of the computer from 16 hours to 8 hours a day. I am hopeful that getting back into sewing & embroidery will assist with this.

As Goals for the New Year they are a very rough draft but as time goes on I hope to firm things up. Today was a day spent sleeping /resting/ recovering from the last week. Tomorrow its back on track and forward ho.

In January I'm taking several mini-courses that match up to the goals I've set for that month. I'll share the links with you tomorrow and you can check them out for yourself to see if you are interested.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
