Current and Future Goals and Dreams (2017)

Each year I like to look back over the previous year, and then set goals for the coming year. Many people do this on Jan 1st; I prefer to do it on my birthday. I often refine the accomplishments and goals until my new year, Samhain, but the bulk of the work is done on or around my birthday.

I also like to do a tarot reading (that post is here, which opens a .pdf file).

Health
Peri-menopause is proving to be more difficult than I expected, although why I thought it would be another else, I’m not sure. Having spent two years attempting to get in better shape I find myself at the same place, if not heavier, than I was post-chemo. This is (literally) depressing. (A mental state I wrestle with far too often to be healthy, and the number one reason I put myself into therapy.)

So I will embark on another attempt:
lose 50 lbs (5 lbs/ month)
lose 10? from waist
Consistently exercise nearly every day and at least 4x/ week
Walk 20 mins/ day
get your (blood work) #s down to manageable levels

use hypnosis and affirmations to support your progress
