Because It's Still Cool To Blog

Setting Intentions

Day 31 (a few hours early) of Gwen Bell's Best of 2009 Blog Challenge:"Resolution you wish you'd stuck with. (You know, there's always next year...)" I don't make New Year's resolutions; rather, throughout the year I set intentions about various things that need addressing in my life. But if I had to pick something that was along the lines of a typical resolution, I'd say that it would be to improve on the quality of my intake. I actually eat very healthfully -- lots of fruits and vegetables and I even cut out coffee this year, but my weakness is my sweet tooth. I went through a good stretch (about a month I think) earlier in the year where I cut out dessert. I had more energy and felt fantastic (and I trimmed up in a hurry between cutting sweets and exercising regularly), and then I fell off the wagon. I'd like to work on reducing sweets in the coming year as part of my general process of eating more mindfully and more cleanly.

(And it probably wouldn't hurt to cut sugar given that I no longer have dental insurance...)

Happy New Year's everyone!
