I didn't get on the ball at new year's, so here I am. Actually a set a goal last December with the help of TUT's adventurer's club, to get an updated kitchen and perfect health. This year most of my energy and visualization has gone toward the kitchen, and quite a few other home renovations, which are nearly done. My kitchen is nearly done except for the tile backsplash. I have oak cabinets, which I debated changing, but I decided to buck trendiness and keep them, and designed around them for a kitchen that is really nice and not trendy. I love my new kitchen, and can't wait to get the backsplash done. Funny thing is, at the time I set the goal, it did not look financially possible in the slightest, things were actually quite bleak, it was amazing how fast things turned around!
Now for the goal of perfect health. I've been a bit more resilient and less reactive to avoids and stress, maybe as a result of the visualizations, but the goal of perfect health is going to take some work. I wasn't really thinking when I set the goal, or I wouldn't have used the word "perfect" but that's the word I used and I'm going to stick to it. That means I will heal everything from my scalp to my feet to my thyroid. I'm focusing first on digestive health, and BTD is the primary tool. Exercise will be vital too, if for no other reason than to feel upbeat and have the energy to follow through with the cooking and all that goes with it.
My secondary goal in all this is to start cooking more at home. I just returned from a week-long car trip and I never want to see another fast food joint or restaurant. I tried to keep a cooler and snacks, and cooked wherever possible, but I still got totally sick of convenience foods. (I never got glutened, but didn't eat right for sure.) The double benefit of cooking at home, is for my home-life. After reading The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands I cooked nightly for 3 months straight, and there were many amazing benefits. Lately I haven't been properly caring for or feeding anybody, and that's got to change. We're all getting too grumpy!
I enjoy change, so this should be fun.
