I’ve committed to the 2011 PostAWeek challenge

30 Dec

Since I feel like I am not sharing enough of my nutrition and culinary adventures, I have decided to take the 2011 WordPress challenge and post at least once a week. Now this may not seem like a very big commitment to some, but I feel that it is always better to commit to something that you can actually accomplish, rather than to something that would require you jump through blazing hoops to make happen..so like I said before.. START SMALL 🙂

Winter hibernation and supplements…

30 Dec

Happy (Belated) Holidays!

As the New Year approaches, I have become increasingly aware of just how early I began my winter hibernation this year… I think the combination of a very difficult semester and a new boyfriend made it very easy for me to just say, “welp it’s cold outside, the farmers market is closed, I guess I can’t do anything but snuggle up with a good TV show”… and this all happened in October! Just kidding, well sort of. Anyways, I have not stuck to my promise of writing about my nutrition goals and changes as I said I would do in when I first began this journey. And truthfully, I am a little upset with myself for not writing and for even more importantly not sticking to the goals that I had in mind for this past semester. I cried to my mom this evening about how disappointed I was in myself for letting my health goals go so astray. And you know what she told me to do? Stop crying and just pick up where I left off. And make attainable goals, instead of trying to change my life all at once. So that is what I am doing.

Since it is winter, and here in central PA the bounty is no longer plentiful, I have decided to give the JuicePlus+ supplements a try. I have been looking into these whole food supplements for a while now, and have decided that it is worth it to give them a try. They are basically concentrated fruits and veggies in a little capsule, that will hopefully boost my health (especially these damn winter blues) in this time of limited fresh bounty…

I will keep you updated on how they are working…hopefully they will arrive next week 🙂 Just in time for the start of the 28-day Whole Living action plan that I have chosen to participate in! Sign-up now on their website, for the challenge which begins on January 3rd! I am REALLY looking forward to a structured plan to get back on the healthy track 🙂
