New year, new beginnings
January 9, 2013 in Uncategorized
Hello and a happy New Year to everyone! It’s my third day back at work, but I’m still struggling to get back into the work routine. Sigh…
My two weeks of holiday were wonderfully relaxing…so much so, that I couldn’t remember my password when I tried to log on on Monday!
I also realised again how unhealthy a deskbound job actually is. During my holidays I was very active, spending lots of time in the outdoors, walking long stretches and avoiding all things electronic. Now it takes a while to get used to sitting in front of the computer again. I love my job, but boy! I don’t like the indoors sitting-on-my-bum part – my bum is actually feeling numb! Ha ha! Just a reminder that I should get up more from my desk during my workday to get the blood circulation going, and that I should leave the office over lunchtime to enjoy some sunshine.
I can proudly say that I’ve been quite good these holidays when it comes to healthy eating. And, amazingly, it came without too much effort. I think I’ve got the summer heat to thank for that. It was so hot that I simply didn’t feel like eating rich and heavy foods! My body naturally craved water, summer fruits and crunchy salads. Even though the Christmas table was groaning with the weight of food again, it was easy enough to fill my plate mainly with fruit and veg to go with my favourite meats (gammon and leg of lamb!)….
Now I’m just hoping that I can keep this up during the new year. It’s so easy to snack on unhealthy things at work and to forgo the exercise, especially when your schedule fills up again quickly.
Anyway, if your New Year’s resolutions include eating more healthily and/or shedding some kilos, have a look at the 2013 Best Diets report that’s just been released. A panel of US experts has reviewed 29 popular diets. Check out our news story which also links to the original report.
May this be a wonderful year for all of us filled with good health, prosperity and lots of laughter!
