Healthy Living for 2014

I know that it's still a few days until we turn the calendar to 2014 but I'm already thinking about how I might be improving my health in the coming months.

I end 2013 with much better dietary habits and with some semi-regular exercise habits. I am sleeping better (and more) than I used to sleep. I need to be more regular with my exercise and a bit more diversified. Working on that.

Overall, I feel pretty good. November and December have been rotten as far as diet and weight loss go. I'll end the year at -30 pounds (the same place I ended October) from the beginning of June. I'd still like to drop some weight but hesitate to set a number. I'm really hoping that I'll know when it feels right. I'm guessing another 15 pounds or so.

I do have other health oriented plans for '14. I do want to plant the garden that we never planted last year. I also want to cut back on how much meat I eat in the coming year.  I hope to spend more time in the kitchen preparing more meals at home and eating out less often. I plan on purchasing more produce from the farmers' markets and less from the big grocery stores. They say that eating healthier foods isn't a lot more expensive, but it does take a bit more work and more time.

I'll keep you posted as the year progresses.
Wishing you a healthy and prosperous year in 2014.
