5 Daily Declarations to Increase your Energy Level

It is no fun being sick or lacking energy. I have just recovered from a bad case of the flu – it took me a couple of weeks to get over it and gain back my energy. I went to see the Doctor (after suffering for a week) and he made an interesting comment. He told me off for trying to work through fevers and sinus congestion.

This is the year – to set that goal and achieve that dream

“This is the year…” – that phrase has been circling around my mind for the past month. This is the year that I want to accomplish my biggest dream. The dream that I have had since I was a little girl. But before I talk about that – I want to share what last year meant to me. Last year was the year that I set that dreaded goal of losing weight.
