It’s already the second Friday of the year. I’m hoping you made it through your first full work week and are making some movement toward your intentions for 2014.
As for this week, here are some of the things on my mind.
As a journal writer and teacher, I like to share that research has shown writing down gratitudes on a daily basis has shown to boost your immune system. Even on the worst of days, one can always find something to feel grateful about.
I found out about #365Grateful on New Year’s Day. This is a movement you can be a part of by sharing your photographs on Instagram with #365Grateful. If you are someone who has never been able to write down what you are grateful for, take a few minutes each day to take a photo and share with others. You can follow me @SherylWW
2. Work out with Tracey
Tracey Anderson is known for being the trainer to Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian and many other stars. I have done her mat workout in the past but found it difficult to follow along. Her new DVD’s have excellent instructions and provide an excellent workout. She looks at lengthening your muscles (she was a dancer) and the work outs are with minimal or no weights (but trust me, you still feel like you arms might fall off)
3. Down Coats
I could talk about the cold weather that we have experienced this week, but I would rather talk about my new down coat. My Calvin Klein coat was an impulse buy from Costco and I’ve been so thankful for it. Why has it taken me so long to have one? (oh, that’s right, I hate coats) I love that it is so light but extremely warm. Seriously, now I think I need another color!
4. Orange is the New Black
Over Christmas break, I was able to begin watching this Netflix series. I LOVE it! I am only halfway through the first season and each episode gets better.
5. Some one is coming Home!
Despite a closed I-65 due to ice and snow and sub zero temperatures, James has been in Indianapolis this week for training. He will get home tonight and I’m always glad to have him home. I never sleep as well without him!
Thanks for stopping by and take some time to follow along with the other wonderful ladies ladies in the Five on Friday link-up!
