Good morning! I hope that 2018 is starting out exactly the way that you had hoped. As I mentioned yesterday I am easing into the new year after a restful stay-cation. I cannot remember the last time that I let myself do nothing, or did not feel the pressure to work, get out, have fun, etc. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
The new year is traditionally a time that people like to “start over” with their savings, work, life and of course dieting and exercise. So today I am asking because I am curious, do you detox, diet, or make over your eating and exercise schedules in January?
I will tell you that I never detox, I couldn’t make it 1 hour if someone told me I could not have food for a week.
As for dieting I hate it. The minute someone tells me no carbs it is all I want, no sugar would absolutely do me in, the same however could not be said for no meat. I went 20 years consuming almost no meat except for the occasional burger. I was also heavier, unhealthy and my hair fell out.
About 4 years ago I decided that instead of torturing myself with diets and exercise I did not like that I would change my life and diet to something that worked for me. I started eating most everything in moderation, and I started going to yoga 5 days a week. At 51 I feel happier and healthier than I have ever felt in my life.
That said, I like everyone else have things I wish were different, smaller thighs, no cellulite, etc, but I guess I will just continue to be a work in progress.
What do you do to stay healthy? Do you work out? Are you a walker, runner, Cross-fit, yoga, or perhaps Pilate’s fan? Follow a specific way of eating?
Thanks for sharing your health and fitness advice.
Have a great day!
