Happy New Year! 2015

Well, Well, Well.....its that day.  The day when we make promises to ourselves that we trash in a week or two.

Three days ago - Miss Lori and I had a stern talk with each other and are back at a lifestyle (not a new years resolution). Its too over whelming to start new and overhaul everything so we each decided to do one thing better each day, by adding in a good habit - not eliminating anything or beating ourselves up for eating "bad food".
Lori has committed to drinking her water daily, I've committed to drinking a green juice daily.  So Far so good.
I've been grocery shopping and packing my lunch too - making juice and smoothies at home and packing lunch is a lot cheaper than buying on the go.
I am also not going to weigh myself this year...a la Amy .  I know I'm fat and I don't need a number anymore to tell me that or tell me I'm worthy each day.  Eff That! I'll measure my health by the miles I ride and the mountains I climb.

Lap Band recap - I had fluid taken out in June because I couldn't eat fresh fruit and veggies and was throwing up anytime I did.  I now can eat all fruits and veggies but I also don't have much restriction and have gained a lot of weight back....I was also gaining when I was too tight....long story short, its a tool - you have to find out what works for you.  For me, not much worked in 2014.

So what does 2015 look like in my world?

  1. Small doable changes. I like it. Green smoothies? I'm trying but I'd rather eat the greens when my sleeve allows salads back into my diet. Good plans. Tracey

  2. You got this - happy, healthy 2015 to you, Vanessa!!

  3. Small changes turn into big accomplishments. Its so cool that you can travel. Thats my dream to travel to many places. But I have 3 kiddos, one day when their all grown. Happy New Year!

  4. Can you tell me what you put in the green smoothies? We're buying a blender this weekend for just this purpose and would love ideas. Great goals for the year!

  5. OMG, Grimace. I feel like Grimace. Love the goals!

  6. Love your goals for the year - I need to focus on increasing my sales, too. Let me know if you have any good literature! :)
