New Year's Resolution

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.

Has anyone else watched OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) yet? It looks like it will be so good!

Whenever I get the time to sit down and watch an episode of Oprah, it always inspires me to better myself in some way. I was disappointed to hear that she was ending her show, but thrilled to see she would have her OWN network. Oprah's commitment to self-improvement brings me to my New Year's Resolution. Last year's resolution was to watch my portions and exercise more. I am proud to say that I really stuck with it last year! I cut down on portion sizes, I played a lot of soccer in the winter, and I ran in the summer and fall. I felt so good!

This year, I have a slightly different resolution in mind. I started reading a book called Anticancer: A New Way of Life by David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD.

I started thinking about all the toxins I am probably putting into my body daily. I can't even begin to list all the habits (having to do with foods I eat and my lifestyle) that put me at a higher risk for cancer. So, I've decided that I will take baby steps to make positive changes according to the rules from the Anticancer website. I posted the rules under a new page so they could be more easily referred to.

Anticancer Goals for January:

1. Seriously limit soda. The plastic lining inside the cans contain BPA. I am not going to say that I will have none because that would be like asking a pack-a-day smoker to quit cold-turkey. No more than 1 a week.

2. I will swap out coffee every morning for green tea and my afternoon soda will be swapped out for a second cup of green tea. I didn't think I liked green tea, but I tried Tazo and it is excellent!

3. Buy more organic foods.

  1. So far I've really liked her programming, especially the show about behind the scenes of making her 25th season - so interesting!

    Good luck with your new goals!
