Wishing Everyone a Happy New Year 2016. So many of us talk about making New Year Resolutions, about diet and the foods we eat, striving for good nutrition and for some weight loss. There are many years in which I have also started out the new year looking to change my diet and “lose weight”. Well this year is no exception for me!
Over the past few weeks as we’ve drawn closer to the new year approaching, this has become a pressing thought. I’m wanting to make some changes to my diet, and wanting to lose weight, the weight which I had gradually gained over a number of years. Sound familiar?
This year, rather than making a resolution, I am setting an intention.
My intention! I am drinking 8+1 = 9 glasses of water each day, I am eating more vegetables (especially leafy greens), snacking on 2 crunchy vegetables each day, and measuring the portions I am eating. A nutritionist once shared with me that the size of a portion is equal to the size of my fist. The visual is helpful whether dining in or dining out. I intend on losing 10 pounds by February 5, 2016,

Again, a Happy New Year to you and yours,
