Happy New Year!



Well here we are - 2010, today is the day that most everyone goes back to work or school and life's routine is restored. The new year is a time to reflect on where we are and where we want to be. So I am here to say, clean out your cupboards and throw away whatever cookies remain from your holiday celebrations.

I, of course, made some pretty hefty healthy eating resolutions at the beginning of 2009 that I kept for a while but have definitely strayed from this holiday season, but that is not going to stop me this year. I won't bore you with the details, but I am back on track as of today. In fact, I have already enjoyed a delicious bowl of granola for breakfast vow to eat up all of the fruits and vegetables delivered to my door a couple days ago.

I will also be recommitting to the gym and my workout this week. My kids don't start school again until tomorrow so that is the first day of the rest of my exercise routine. I hope you start yours too. Remember how great walking is? Try to do it 3-5 times per week.

And lets not forget about water. I feel a little puffy from the salty foods I have eaten over the holidays. I am also recommitting to water, drinking my eight glasses a day.

So, whatever your 2010 goals are, I wish you luck. Karla and I are looking forward to a great year of blogging and learning more about what we can all do to Live a Whole Life.

Hmm - not super familiar with Cape Town - some US options are Mountain Rose Herbs and Frontier, but with all the ocean near you - there should be a more local source. Try any natural herb websites or even Farmer's Markets may sell it with spices.
