If you have a plan or goal to get fit and healthy this month .
First of all visit your medical practitioner before making any changes to her diet and exercise regieme.
Don’t be too hard on yourself , take it a day at a time and one step at a time . Make small changes .

You can do it !

A Mindful Moment

The practice of mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now.

Take a deep breath. Get present in the moment and ask yourself , what  is important this very moment.

A moment of radical acceptance, is a moment of genuine freedom. -Tara Brach
