Happy New Year everyone!
Today is the day we got the new calendar out and each day there will be a new message (except for the weekends – there will be just one).
“I’m always in the pursuit of magic.”
Today’s Self Love Action: Let me begin the New Year reminding myself that wonderful, magical, miraculous people and opportunities can come into my life at any time. Today I will notice the magic all around me.
Workout today: None – lazy day.

A few things I’m still keeping an eye out on:
- Amount of sugar in a serving – if it’s more than 4g, I am being cautious
- Amount of protein in a serving – I’m aiming for at least 20g of protein per serving each meal
- Amount of fiber in a serving – I’m doing my best to aim for 20g of fiber each day, but that sure can be difficult!
- If I have a sweet tooth craving, I turn on the keurig and add creamer to my cup of coffee
