Ten Thoughts for 2013...A (More) Healthy Me

When I began to put my list of ten thoughts together I purposely left out clearing clutter, losing weight, and being thrifty. These are my standbys and I wanted to think about new horizons for this year.  But interspersed with all of my goals -- blogging, traveling and seeing New York -- is having the energy to do these things and (en)joy them.

I am not as healthy as I was last year at this time. I've done well recuperating from my surgery and I'm able, on most days, to walk a mile. I was about to do another round of physical therapy before Hurricane Sandy and then got totally sidetracked. It's time to focus again on recovery. I added more walking to my day and each day that it's nice out I will try and walk a mile and a quarter. It's not huge, but it will help me build up stamina and endurance, and by the summer and my trip to Disney World, I will be much better able to enjoy my dream trip.  

My other goal is to eat healthier. I started off December sensibly and like every other year it ended in an orgy of chocolate, Pepsi and ice cream. I'm tired, chubby and know I could be feeling a lot, lot better. I'm thinking of making a radical change and giving up gluten and/or going to the paleo diet. It would involve a lot more cooking, but I've been awed by the good food featured on my buddy, Change of Pace's blog. She writes about delicious looking healthy food and has really inspired me. Has anyone made a radical change in their diet? I'd love to hear about it.

I've also been looking at Pinterest for inspiration and saw this recipe, which doesn't look like any hardship to eat.
