Well today is ‘the day’, the day when our New Year’s Resolutions wish list kicks into high gear…my own included. I usually don’t make resolutions per say I personally find them ineffective, mainly because it’s just words we sputter over and over again when we feel out of balance and know we need to do ‘something’. However, this year after a fabulous holiday and being home for nearly two weeks I too feel the need to do ‘something’. For the first time in a longtime I let my ‘Nutritionist Guard’ (some like to call it Food Nazi Guard:)) down and indulged in baked goods, appetizers, dough, flour, wine, wine, wine, candy, chocolate ughhhh…and it was both delicious and enlightening.

Daily in my life, both in work and in play, I educate and encourage people to resist the urge, enjoy in moderation(whatever that means?), choose the healthier option and to move their bodies and am usually received with looks and words of ‘I know but its just so hard’ and I finally get it…this sugary, doughy, lip-licking way of living is addictive!

Now let it be said, yes I am still eating healthy about 70% of the day right now but when you are used to 80-90% it feels like a huge shift…in a pants fitting tighter, belly looking softer, less energy, lack-luster skin kind of way. I have let myself use the excuse of training for a triathlon and that am working out so hard I can eat like a trucker and get away with it…not so much, turns out I am human! 

So what’s my plan of attack? Stay tuned for my next post to find out…
