2012 Resolutions

I have to say, I LOVE New Year's resolutions!  I know a lot of people who don't like them and never make them, but I really like the idea of starting fresh.  It gives me hope and energy to think that this year will be different.  Even if  I don't keep them, I think it's worth making them.

My New Year's Resolutions of 2012:

1.  I will walk for 30 minutes every morning.

2.  I will switch to a mainly plant-based diet, following this food pyramid.  (I saw 2 documentaries that have led to this one:  "Forks over Knives" and "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead".  Check them out.)

3.  I will have fresh juice or a green smoothie at least once a day.

4.  I will write to my Bosnian sister on the first of each month.  (I sponsor a Bosnian woman through Women for women.  I always send the money, but I'm ashamed to say I rarely write like I'm supposed to.)

5.  I will be the best mother I can possibly be.

6.  I will spend more time and energy on people, and less time and energy on things.

I also LOVE to read other people's resolutions (so I can steal the good ones).  What are yours?
