Day 22 2012

I am closer to 30 days of being aware of my fitness. I have seen how I have tanked each start to spiritual , physical , mental, and financial fitness. I am training myself to ride out the stress. The better I can ride out the stress the more I stay centered spiritually. The better I am spiritually the better my finances which allow me to maintain my physical. I am overdue for a manicure and pedicure. I also need to update my boulder holders.

I am mainly working to center myself spiritually to deal with the teenage years. Sad part he has been in these years since age two.

I am soaking and preparing to wash my hair. Part of mental health is feeling good and looking good helps one to feel good.
