For the new year, as with most of the population, I am going to strive to be more healthy. My sister is going to try the Pescetarian Diet which is fish and healthy stuff that grows from the ground. I am going to enlarge my choices to chicken and turkey – hence pescechikturktarian. Yes, I realize the jest of that is I am not eating red meat, but I really like my new word.
I am not calling this a New Year’s Resolution because I always break those. This is just a positive approach to eating for the new year. Hopefully, I will be make a concerted effort to stay focused on the new way of eating.
One problem is my husband does not share my desire to cut out red meat, so I will have temptation in front of me any time I need to cook something red for him. Also, I do really like a good bowl of chili in the winter, but ground turkey can be substituted for the red meat, and maybe my husband won’t know.
The other effort I plan to make is exercising more – well, I should probably leave off the word “more” since I have been rather lax in doing any exercise. I go for a while and do great, and then I travel or something else distracting, and I get out of the routine and then take a long time to get back in the groove.
Walking is my exercise of choice along with yoga. I like both of those activities so I do not know what my problem is. Oh, yes I do, it is actually participating in the movement.
This time next year, I will write with the report of my success. I will brag about how much better I feel and how I look so many years younger. I will talk about how I have the body of a much younger person, all a result of my 2015 new year approach to better health.
