Did you make a New Year’s Resolution? Personally, I don’t believe in resolutions. Mainly because I’ve never been able to keep them and it feels as if I’m breaking a promise to myself, which makes me feel bad inside.
But I have set goals
I plan to add five minutes of jogging to my walk every day. I will do this in minute intervals. Jog for a minute and then walk for a minute, then jog for a minute…and so on until I’ve done five minutes of jogging then I will continue to walk for the rest of my exercise time.
I also want to add some gut healthy foods to my diet. Please understand I’m not going to diet I just want to cultivate a healthy microbiome. Why? Because microbes help us digest food, harvest calories, provide us with energy, produce crucial vitamins, regulate appetite, and protect our immune system. This is a new approach to healthy eating spearheaded by Professor Tim Spector, author of the new book “The Diet Myth: The Real Science Behind What We Eat”
Professor Spector’s work (Yes, he has a super villain’s name.) was recently featured in a CBC documentary It Takes Guts.
Here are Tim Spector’s top ten foods for gut health:
Lastly, I plan to do more promos this year. This will be especially true in January, February and March. I’m planning giveaways, and sales to celebrate some special days, such as Robbie Burns day on 25th January, where we appreciate the Scots in all their glory. And what self respecting romance writer doesn’t celebrate Valentines Day 14th February with a giveaway. Finally, I have to do something special for St. Patrick’s Day.
So stay tuned for announcements.
What are your goals? I'd love to hear about them?
I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful 2016.
