A new year always brings with it hope. Every January, I rack my brain thinking of ways to make the coming year the best year of my life! That being said… I have a feeling that 2012 is going to be a great year. In this time of personal reflection, I realized that I need to start taking better care of myself. With a health crisis/brain tumor under my belt, I have noticed that my eating habits have really degenerated over the last few years. Diet and Exercise need to play a large role in survivorship. While I still am pretty religious about my exercise habits, I have noticed that I have developed some bad eating habits. Fried food, candy, and junk food have become my “escape” from reality. Bad habits are forming, but I can still do something about it. The new year is the perfect time to challenge myself again. I WILL EAT HEALTHIER IN 2012. I will eat more fruits and vegetables and less junk food. I’m not completely giving up junk food because that is CRAZY! I will however go with the healthier alternative when given a choice. A friend challenged me with a bet to improve my eating habits last month. I feel much healthier and I want to carry the momentum over to 2012 Most New Years resolutions don’t stick. I consider this more of a 2012 Personal Challenge to eat healthier, than a resolution. I do realize that I may have physical limitations that I cannot control, but I can still prevent further health situations from arising. Do you have any New Years Resolutions in 2012?
