I am trying to fulfill a New Year’s resolution I didn’t make; exercise more and eat better. I didn’t make it a resolution for once I set my sight on that I knew like most people I would fail. I just started. One walk a day a couple of times a week has now turned into a walk everyday, sometimes twice a day. The eating better part was not too difficult since my family doesn’t eat beef just lots of fish and poultry. I have replaced cow’s milk with almond milk and try to snack on more fruits and vegetables instead of sweet things. Our recent journey to Costco had our basket filled with supersize veggie and fruit platters and a newly acquired scale. We all now weigh ourselves and while not totally shocked, I must admit it was the first time I have personally owned one in years. I take vitamins and supplements as well; a multivitamin, flaxseed oil for those hot flashes, calcium to build the ‘bone bank’ and my personal favorite Protandim to help reverse the signs of aging. My drink of choice is decaffeinated unsweetened green tea. I brew and drink a pitcher of it a day and supplement it with water. So far so good. It is not the first time I have done this and I am now remembering how good I felt when I had done this before. I take it one day at a time as I continue on my journey of better health. While changing my habits I believe I am fighting off aging as best I can without surgery and procedures, just one step and glass at a time. Now let’s see if my body agree…. Only time will tell.
