Part 1 - My 2019 Word of the Year is SELF-CARE.

After the first hospitalization of my life, I found the need to reflect on what got me there after managing to not go back after I was born.It was quite apparent - and also pointed out to me - that I am on the bottom of my list. My diagnosis confirms this needs to change. Protecting my private time is of paramount importance if I want to continue doing the work I love. This is the year I make the change.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales
*******************************
For the 2019 Summer 5% Challenge, I am going back to a simple plan that is more specifically defined. Because my work schedule can be exhausting, I need to have a simple plan to stay on track with clearly outlined activities.

Daily:
1. Prayer & meditation daily.
2. Exercise: Qi Gong 3x week; strength training 3x week; cardio when cleared by cardiologist & EP
3. Nutrition plan: WW

Schedule will be adjusted for each week’s LTGL.
