Day 365 I DID IT!!!

Today is the day! I have successfully completed an entire year without fast food or soda! I have lost two dress sizes and saved countless dollars and calories by not consuming these things. I have learned to cook, I have learned to eat mindfully, and I have learned that I have iron clad willpower. This is not the end! I do not plan on returning to a fast food lifestyle, my new eating habits are just that, they are habits now and habits are hard to break. I have discovered things that I would never have normally eaten, I have developed a love of strange and delicious whole foods, and I have begun to spread the knowledge around. I have also discovered that I love the subject of nutrition and after my year long challenge, I have decided to return to school to study nutrition and dietary sciences. I want to help people to live healthier lives and to share what I have learned for the benefit of a healthier society. Now, for my new challenge! For the next 365 days, I will add movement to my new healthier eating lifestyle. Every day, I will find a new and challenging way to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, every day. I will blog weekly on my vast list of movements and will be looking for new and interesting ways to increase my heart rate and continue losing weight. I have already completed today's challenge by doing consistent, heavy house cleaning for two hours, while closing up my old apartment. I want to incorporate exercise into daily living so that it's not a chore, but just a part of daily life, there will be lots of throwing the ball with my dog, gardening, raking leaves, and just general physical activity. I do not believe that one must have a membership to an expensive gym or have a garage full of exercise equipment to move around and get healthy. I want to people to see healthy eating and exercise as part of a normal routine. Over the next 365 days, I am determined to lose another 50 pounds and to feel and look healthier than I ever have in my life. Thank you for following my blog for the past year and I hope that you continue to follow and to join me in the healthiest year and a new decade of growth and self realization!
