Goals 2017

     We have all been exposed to New Years Resolutions.  We have grown up with them.  We all make them, and we all have failed miserably with them.  Or at least I have.  I guess we are all human, none of us are perfect. Right?

     So how do we perfect our imperfections?  How do we stay on the road to our resolutions?  I have been thinking about this since January 1 of this year.  My plant based diet has been going very well I think.  I have made huge strides in my journey this past year, but I need to make it better somehow.

     I was reading today on Facebook, which is where I get a lot of my inspiration, and I came across another plant based eater and how she has a bullet journal.  What the heck is that?  I started watching YouTube videos about this type of journaling.  (A person can find soooo many things and tutorials on YouTube!)  Anyway, it's a type of journaling that helps you stay productive.  I find so many times during my life where my life is stagnant.  Or I don't get done what I set out to do ages ago.  I have several books that I bought on Amazon that I haven't read yet.  They are collecting dust, or I just read excerpts out of them and use what I need.  I know that I would gain so much more knowledge on a great many things if I would just finish!  How many of us have started things that we never have finished.  We have all been there.

     Well this type of journaling should help.  Take a look at this video to see how it works.  I am really considering doing this.  I think it will help to write things down.  When I get an idea for a blog post, I should write it down, but I forget and consequently I forget what I was going to write about.   https://youtu.be/OuaaotSpifM

     Goals should be written down, and reviewed often.  This would help with meal planning, shopping lists, doctors appointments, exercising.  Even chores that need to get done.  I don't know how many times I have gone to do something and I get side track, and never get back to the chore or project at hand because I forget.

     How do you get started you ask?  Watch the video above, check out more YouTube videos as well as there are a ton!  Also there are many ideas on Pinterest.  It doesn't have to be perfect, or beautiful, or stylish.  It's your journal, and you can make it look anyway you want.

     I'm excited to start one!  Lets write our stuff down, and get stuff done!  By the way, my goals for this year is to get another 50 pounds off of my body.  I want to stop eating ANY oil except an occasional avocado and nuts.  I want to rid my taste buds of sweets, and get rid of the salt.

     On a side note, they call it a bullet journal because it's sectioned off by these little dots.  Makes it easier to section off with a ruler.

     On a side not, Physical Therapy is going well.  I think I'm getting stronger.  I worked yesterday and walked a good 5 miles.  Hopefully as I lose this extra weight things will get better!
