Much needed sanity

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category: , , , ,
I've been going through this diet change and a part of it is trying to drink less coffee. I've started drinking Chai lattes again and it is not only yummy but makes me feel less jittery and hopped up on caffeine. I guess it doesn't help to aggravate your ulcer but I've been eating and drinking things that are bad for me for YEARS. LOL

With the approach of the Chinese New Year's on Feb 14th..I've decided to change up my entire diet. Primarily: 1. For personal reasons 2. To purge all the yuck from my system.

Have you ever felt heavy inside and can't put a finger on it? Well, I've felt that way for too long. It's the physical, mental, and lack of spiritual weight that I can't seem to shed. You know what I mean? I'm sure you've been there. With the pressures of family, economy, life, work, impacts a person in so many ways. It's easy to crack and not just that single split either..but the one that branches off in a zillion directions, one stemming out from the other. It becomes a crutch that we carry and accept. I woke up one day and realized I can't live my life wondering when the glass with finally fall to pieces and I decided I want to do something about it. So in order for me to get back on track in all facets of my life, I am going to have a lifestyle change starting on Chinese New Year's. For the next year, I'm going to eat right, exercise, and recharge. If everything goes well, I may continue this for much much longer....

This weekend will be the last one to truly indulge! This morning I'm going to be meeting up with my writerly buds and we're going to hit it hard. Then afterward, it's time to party with my girl Katie who is going to fit me into her busy schedule. We're going to get some drinks and watch a chick flick. I think we need a good laugh so I'm excited about WHEN IN ROME. Josh Dumahel will just spice up the party.

I'm expecting that by the end of 2010, I'm going to achieve the results I'm working toward. It's also a test of my strengths and I'm really excited about it. Life is too short and I want to make every second count.

Who's with me? :)

Good for you! I've been eating lighter lately and not drinking as much caffeine. I've noticed as I get older coffee/soda/etc. makes me jittery. Ugh.

Tell us how the movie was! Josh is hawt. :)

I'm trying to eat a bit better. Need to separate my diet from hubby's for sure. He's one of those fast metabolism demons.

I so SO love cosmos though. *sniff*
Have mad fun with the writing group. I'm imagining you sipping cosmos though I know that's probably not the case.

You're so good! I love chai tea lattes but I don't know if I could ever give up by daily dosage of coffee ;)

No cosmos this round but we still had a blast! Then I got lost in the hood for 30 minutes with my pal Tracy. It was a comedy of errors.

Katie, I could never give up coffee! Just drinking less of it :)

Sounds like a great way to start a new year. I know when I overindulge I always have that sluggish feeling. Takes a workout to get rid of it. Good luck with your resolutions!
