Every New Years, every single person in the universe posts a status on every social media platform stating, "New Year, New ME!", and creates goals for themselves such as eating healthy or losing weight. This year, I have decided to actually create a new me. Last year, I indulged in candy, sweets, and soda, while not caring about the state of my body. I enjoyed my favorite candies nearly every day and drank gallons of sugar with a little coffee added in. As the New Year came rolling in, I felt groggy and unhappy with myself because I had a latte with five turbo shots and three energy drinks in the span of twelve hours. That is when I decided that something had to change.
As my New Year's Resolution, I have decided to stop eating sugary foods, and I have decided to eat cleaner foods. I have given up my vegetarian life style to gain more protein and I am still struggling a lot with that change. I have been a vegetarian on and off for seven years, and this time I am really having trouble bouncing back into the herbivore diet. I promised myself that I would not drink any soda, and it has been almost a week and I feel so much healthier already, and I feel like I have much more energy.
This is going to be my year, and creating small reachable goals has helped me to feel healthier in just a week. The idea of the 'New Year, New Me' concept is to engage more into self love, and I believe this year, I am doing just that.
