With the start of a new year, naturally people start making resolutions: exercise more, eat less, do more charity work, be a better person.
Obviously, my new years resolution is to beat cancer's ass (while being a better person, of course). And with that goal, comes some necessary changes.
According to a woman I've been speaking with at BeatCancer.org, here is my list of resolutions:
I will live a non toxic, organic lifestyle.
I will take a 15 minute break for every hour I spend at the computer.
I will dance more.
I will walk at least 30 minutes a day.
I will do yoga.
I will drink more water (at least half my weight in ounces).
In addition to these lifestyle changes, I will follow a strict, but beneficial diet, including:
No White Products.
No Microwaving. Ever.
Sounds nuts, huh? And I know what you're thinking. "What can she eat??" But oddly enough, I'm looking forward to taking on this challenge. Besides, I was a vegetarian for 10 years just because I was told I wouldn't last a week. If I had the persistence to do that at 13, I certainly can do this now with more at stake than just my pride.
All while being a better person, of course.
Happy New Year Everyone!
