- Happy New Year to all. Let me begin with prayers and thoughts for all of those who lost loved ones, battled illness, and had anxiety and depression in 2021. It was a collective difficult year for all, and I send love and healing to those who are feeling the wrath of the past year. For some of us, like myself, we let our healthy lifestyle slip by the wayside during lockdowns and endless emotional, physical and financial stress. It was not an easy year to say the least.
My healthy lifestyle held on until the end of summer. Since August my weight went from 169 to 187. That’s a lot of weight. I didn’t exercise and I ate a lot of sugary vegan junk food. I’m human and it happens. I forgive myself and I’m moving on. I’m so ready for a healthy reset in January and I’m starting today. It’s about my health. I plan to document everything and share everything I do. I know I’ve dropped the ball many times since 2017, but my why is different now. I want good health, happiness and the ability to be creative without stress and anxiety. I’m going to really do my best to tackle my whole mind/body/spirit/creative passions.
To start January we cleaned the apartment, took down all the Christmas decorations and bought new flowers for the balcony and master bath. I meal prepped and we bought a blender. James my hubby gifted me a fit watch and a cleverfox planner to really get the new year going. My first goal is my health, to feel well in mind/body and spirit, so I begin this new blog journey with that. It begins with clean plant based food and movement, with stretching and meditation. Here’s the plan.
Current Weight 187 lbs
First goal 165, second goal 150, third goal 135-140.
Here are five things I’m doing in January to reset my body
1.Dr Greger’s Daily Dozen and a food journal, I will go into detail on my next post.
3. Daily exercise, stretching and meditation, using my fit watch to track steps.
4. Smoothies! We bought a new blender and I am so excited to make nutritious and delicious green smoothies.
5. Whole food vegan diet no oil, with 1/3 tsp salt for iodine and no sugar except 1 teaspoon in my coffee with my soy milk. I plan to food journal.
This is the beginning. There’s so much more I plan to do but this post is about the basics. This is the reset, with brand new beginnings. January is for starting over brand new.
“Let Food Be Thy Medicine and medicine be Thy Food.”
I wish you healing, love and light.
