SESSION 1:  Getting Started - Creating Goals and Vision  (my answers in orange)

SESSION 2:  Action Steps - building a tool box 

SESSION 3:  Building Affirmation

I do these challenges often and today seems a perfect day to start another.  

Here’s how we’re get started: 

1.  State a goal or two that we want to accomplish. 

2.  Define action steps and tools to get us there.  
3.  Create the inspiration to help us along the way.

Considering my challenges today of pain, stress and feeling low, my goal to kick off the year is to Upgrade my MS health.  I’ve let things slip and by getting back on track my symptoms and stress will be alleviated.  

During the holidays and if I’m not paying attention, my diet creeps higher with sodium, over processed flour and to much refined sugar. This year has been no different.  I’ve also been spending much time on my rear, and not out moving like I could be.  This year has also been a wonderful year of expenses.  Wonderful because they all represent memories and fun times.  But alas, time to tighten that money belt down and gain some control.  

I acknowledge these weaknesses, own them and know they  must change.  Time to rein in the unhealthy desires and replace them with positive, healthy habits.  


Here’s how I’m going to do it:  

1.  Eat better - Bring that diet under control and reduce symptoms.

2.  Get moving - exercise to reduce stress and symptoms
3.  Practice lifestyle skills to manage stress, and therefore reducing symptoms. 

And so much more!

Join me in the process.  Follow along and answer these questions and we can discuss/chat online or on the phone.
