Saying goodbye to 2018 took me some time. I'm still working on getting myself fully organized for 2019.
2018 was my year to PLAY - for six months I mostly kept up with LifeBook 2018 and enjoyed the new art ideas to which I was being exposed. Then I joined a Creative Team whose designer passed away from cancer two months after I signed on, joined three other creative teams from her shop only to have the shop close, and followed those designers to new shops. All of which completely distracted me from LifeBook. I was still PLAYing - albeit it digitally - so I considered my word and my involvement with it to be a success.
This year I'd like to get back to the LifeBook version of art-ing. I've signed on for LifeBook 2019, but so far I haven't even managed to get through the first lesson.
Totally aside from PLAY, during the first six months of 2018 I focused on my health - my weight and my physical condition. I joined WW and lost some weight; unfortunately gained the majority of it back during the second half of 2018 - between trips to the Jersey shore and Kauai, travel for work, and the holidays. Honestly, I will probably always struggle with my weight. Bad combination of insatiable appetite and slow metabolism.
So... 2019.... knowing that I really want to get HEALTHY so that I can enjoy and actively participate in the rest of my life - rather than merely surviving it or suffering through it - I decided to make HEALTHY my word for the year. My primary focus is on my physical health and I have some goals in that regard.
Ali Edwards One Little Word class this year, but probably won't be doing many of the album prompts this year because I'm adding this to my daily planner rather than keeping a separate album. I want everything together where I see it all the time.
I'm also thinking about my mental, emotional, and spiritual health - as well as having a healthy home, healthy marriage, healthy relationships... you get the idea - healthy can truly encompass the entirety of your life and being!
I've started classes at a local gym (began in December) and I've signed up for the Whole Life Challenge that starts this coming Saturday, the 19th. Check it out HERE and think about joining me - I'd love to have some of my blog friends on my team!
This challenge ties in so neatly with everything that I'm trying to do this year, and the price was quite reasonable, so I couldn't not give it a shot!
I've also joined Cathy Zielski's FIT class again, but that's mostly for her monthly inspirational audio. I'll be tracking my stats in my daily planner:
So those are the plans... and here are some of the goals for the year:
