2011 Promises

It’s time for life’s transgressions to come center stage. While the big task is sometimes too much to handle, this year I am asking you to take it in small strides. Let’s not focus on the things that hold us back but on the things that we have the power to control.

I promise to love life

Life is about curve balls.

While I cannot promise I can stay on track on the diet of my choosing nor can I admit to be perfect in calories and portions all the time, I do promise to love life.

I promise to love life for what it is.

I promise to take each day as just that: another day in my life journey.

While I cannot change what happened yesterday I can change how and what I can do today.

I promise not to dwell on the things that damper my soul.

I promise to make better decisions for me and my family.

I promise to take food for its face value

Food can be a crutch, a burden or a sense of freedom- It depends on how you look at it.

This year, I promise to throw out the misconceptions, the heartache and all the stress that comes with food.

I promise to eat to nourish my body -no other reason.

I promise to eat the food my body needs, from all food groups and the right amounts.

I promise to eat in moderation.

Have your cake and eat it too!

You can have your cake and eat it too. You do have to let go of excess and maintain a self-control that cannot be overpowered in order to achieve this frame of mind, but it can be done. By changing the way you think of food and controlling the right aspects about it entitles you to be the person you want to be.

Thank you for allowing me to share my journey with you.  Stay tuned in 2011 for tips, tools and strategies for you to be in control!

Sincerely,

Amanda
