Well it's that time again...a time of resolutions, "New Year New You's", great intentions, poor planning and sadly, more often then not...disappointment.
And even though I periodically bring up the fact that I don't believe in waiting until the magical day that seems to be January 1st to make change, I have to admit I enjoy and appreciate the collective energy of everyone's intention for change at the beginning of the year.
Today I wanted to share something that happened to me. It wasn't anything blatantly earth-shattering or in-your-face. In fact, it was simply a series of thoughts that ran through my mind.
Thoughts that occur everyday but today I caught them "red-handed" in the act. See if you can relate my friend.
You've been through this before…you've made the same promise to yourself - "I'm going to eat better."
If you hold the thought longer than a minute you may even make it so far as to take action on that promise for a day or two. The problem then becomes that "life" rears it's ugly head, you lose focus and your old habits take over and you're back on autopilot (not in a good way).
I'm here to tell you that it is in fact possible to make good on your intentions to eat well and live a healthier lifestyle. I also have some good news for you...it's not that hard. Sure it'll take some time (we'll get to that in a moment), but it's not as hard as you might think.
