New Year…New Me! (again?)



Well, after fighting a stubborn chest cold, I’m bound and determined to get going on my plan to get healthier this year and stay that way! I’m going to try the Eat Clean Diet by Tosca Reno. It’s more than doable for me since I LOVE fruits, veggies, chicken and fish!


My problem is going to be with sweets, pasta and salty snacks Sad smile I also have a love/hate relationship going with them! ha


I’m excited to receive my new Creative Essentials package from Sue Walters! I decided (after much thought!) that I would treat myself to a Christmas gift!! It’s a pyrography package and I’m hoping it will be as much fun to experiment further with wood burning as I think it will be! I’m looking forward to trying anyway!


I’m late, but I want to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Happy New Year Darla! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas too! Your Christmas present sounds like so much fun. Looking forward to seeing what you create! :)

Happy New Year to you too, Darla! All the best for 2012! I can't wait to see your pyrography projects. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I bought a wood-burning set in recent months but more for making stamps.

Good luck with your plan to eat healthier. Unfortunately, salty snacks are my downfall too. :(

Hugs,
Serena

I'm right there with you..back to good clean eating..but it's SOOO hard to stay away form the carbs..and the sugar..and the chocolate. The the Weight Wather's lady said "loosing weight is hard..keeping it off is hard..being fat is hard..choose your hard!"

80 lbs Jeanette?! That's fabulous! I LOVE all the wrong carbs but there is just too much evidence that they are bad for us. I know people stress 'moderation' but I still can't grasp the meaning of that word! haha Congrats to you! It's so inspiring!
