New Years Resolutions

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, 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 Wheat.
No Corn.
No Dairy.
No White Products.
No Sugar.
No Caffeine.
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!


  1. Dave and I are trying it too!! However, I am currently drinking coffee, not ready to give that one up ;) Sending our love and support to you from Oregon!!!

  2. Best of luck, Dana! Here's to a healthy New Year. You're going to do great. I tried out some of your mom's raw foods--not too shabby, actually!

    All the best,

    Great book...I encourage you to look into sources for healthier, pastured meats in addition to organic vegetables! Best of luck to you
