Taking a quick look back at my RUN page for December, my total mileage was 56.22 miles compared to my 32.99 miles in November. So again January I need to bump it up. My RUN page is always being updated so keep an eye on it.

Our New Year’s Eve consisted of a lot of food. I am still eating quite lousy and I have been getting constant migraines. I can’t believe how people can eat like that day in and day out. Starting Monday we are going back to our normal ways, the food is almost gone! Its going to feel so nice to not have these constant migraines and just plain yucky feelings of lack of energy and exhaustion. Starting Monday, will be the start of high raw and mostly vegan. I need to start transitioning slowly, otherwise I will never manage to keep it up. Also again starting Monday I will resume my running and start my yoga.

This year is the year to change things in my life, getting fit and healthy are on the top of my list. I want to be more adventurous in my cooking and un-cooking. I do not intend to become 100% Raw, but I do intend to become Vegan and have a lot of Raw food intake. My main reason for wanting to go Raw and Vegan is the fact that the food is so much cleaner, I don’t want to ingest any more additives or junk into my body. I want to flush those impurities away and treat my body with respect and help it perform at its best. That’s what this year is all about.  By doing all of this I am also hoping that my IBS will be under control and I will hopefully have no more flare ups and I will essentially be "cured" that would be a dream come true to feel normal, for once in my life. I have already felt the benefits of a clean lifestyle, and just from these pasts couple weeks of not eating clean, I have definitely discovered that my body does not want to eat like that anymore and it is time for a huge change.

Tonight we did some New Year’s cleaning. We switched the bedroom and the office rooms around. So now the bedroom is smaller and the office is much bigger! Only took about 2 hours to do all the moving and setting everything back up. The Christmas tree and decorations also came down tonight. Everything is all tidy again and feeling a lot more organized this year. I am off to relax for a bit before bed! New week starting, changes to be made. Stay Tuned.
