My One Little Word for 2017

I don’t really believe in making resolutions at the start of the new year. They never really work out quite the way that we plan them to. A few years back I had signed up for a year-long class with Ali Edwards called One Little Word. And while I didn’t finish the project (I’m blaming the FIFO lifestyle) I did really like the concept. So I’ve signed up for the class in 2017.

Although I’m a little bit reluctant to take on another project with an already full plate, I think that One Little Word is something that will be of great benefit so I made the decision to sign up.

My word is SALUBRIOUS.
Conducive or favourable to health and well-being of mind and body. Wholeness.

As I approached the end of 2016 I because so conscious of how unhealthy and unwell I have been feeling, living and eating. I’m overweight and sluggish in my daily activities. Consuming way too much sugar, alcohol, coffee and nutritionally poor food. I’m very inconsistent with physical activity. I’m constantly fatigued. My moods are all over the place (with a trend toward anger and sadness).
In 2017 I want to focus on improving the health of my body, my mind and my soul. I want to live a salubrious life. I want to tackle my health issues in a holistic manner. I want to be able to manage working part-time, a full-time study load, home/domestic responsibilities and still be able to experience and create joy for myself and my relationships with my daughter, my partner, my family and my friends.

It’s going to be a bumpy road.

Here is a look at my completed pages for January.

A note about this blog: Although I’ve been far from consistent in blogging since creating this website, I am going to endeavor to make better use of the space in 2017. Writing and sharing my story is important and I think a good way for me to process the jumble of thoughts that bounce around inside my head an eat away at me on a daily basis.
