More than just a geographical situation! I have been trying to get my "word" for 2017. So far no luck. An entire week into the new year and I don't have a plan. Or my plan was put on hold so that I could help out my sister-in-law by staying with my mother-in-law for the first month of my new year. I'm more than happy to help out. I don't even mind that I'm in the cold because it will create more fondness for my Texas weather.
BUT, the pitfalls here are numerous. I am in a house where I don't have control over what things to eat come into the pantry. I am missing my CONTROL. So, the planning and preparation is even more important here. Not being in my own home also makes for times when I wonder what I should be doing. I need to work to adjust.
I need to focus on establishing healthy habits in new surroundings. So tonight will be an early bed time so that I can get up nice and early tomorrow and spend some time doing some careful planning. I will of course have to explain all my actions or time at the computer to my mother-in-law who will think that all I am doing is a waste of time. Oh well, I'm a grown up and I can do as I please.
So, I guess my word for 2017 will be ADAPT. Take what I know is healthy for me and apply it to all my situations. I think that ADAPTATION requires proper planning. So that will be key for my successful 2017.
More work to be done.
