Mantra for Winter 5% Challenge: I will not let things outside my control change me in a negative way. I will choose how I feel and I will focus on my goals. I am coming out of this better than I went in.

I commit to being the very best that I can be. I deserve to love, be loved and most importantly of all, I deserve to love myself. I deserve a healthy body and I will never give up on myself, no matter what happens, and I promise to do whatever it takes to make it happen. Today is the first day of the rest of my life.


I do solemnly pledge:
that I will do my best to eat healthy and within my calorie range,
that I will exercise to the best of my ability,
that I will watch my portions and avoid mindless eating,
that I will avoid or limit unhealthy foods,
that I will try to get enough sleep,
that I will stretch myself out of my comfort zone,
that I will always try to make healthy choices even when stressed,
that if I slip, I will get back on track with the very next opportunity,
that I will keep a CAN DO attitude, or ask for Help,
and that I will support my fellow team mates

I can do it!


1. I shall lovingly accept myself as I am right now.

2. I shall appreciate all the beauty that makes me who I am.

3. I shall regularly give thanks for all of my blessings.

4. I shall trust in my ability to take care of myself.

5. I shall not criticize myself.

6. I shall not criticize others.

7. I shall forgive myself when I make a mistake.

8. I shall be kind to others, without sacrificing my own needs.

9. I shall take responsibility for my life.

10. I shall love myself to the best of my ability.


I give me permission to be happy because I love me.


You are not a result of your circumstances, you are a result of your choices.

In every moment you get the choice to be inspirational. Or not.
In every moment you get the choice to be your most remarkable self. Or not.
In every moment you get the choice to listen to your heart. Or not.
In every moment you get the choice to empower yourself. Or not.
In every moment you get the choice to build your ideal future. Or not.
In every moment you get the choice to engage with the world. Or not.
In every moment you get the choice to say yes to life. Or not.
In every moment you get the choice to embody your potential. Or not.

Some of the lyrics from Faith of the Heart by Russell Watson.

I've got faith to believe, I can do anything. I've got strength of the soul, and no one's gonna bend or break me. I've got faith, faith of the heart.

We can do it!

    I'm on a 5% Sabbatical but they do help and they do work.

    I found the most important aspect for me is to be forgiving and understanding of my short-comings and failures.

    Failures is not a good word but I am at a loss for what to say - I choose to say "less than optimal" for the most part.

    Praise Be, every day we get another chance to try again! Some days are less than optimal, some are awesome. But every day is a blessing.

    Huggers & Good Luck to you,
