New Year New You Summit Day 1-
What I am looking forward to…
“The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.”
I am really keen to hear this man’s idea on what the future hold’s for us. I am inspired to try and be a creator and provider rather than a constant consumer. He is a great speaker.
When faced with the desire to “get healthier”, even the best intentions can get lost in the details, especially if you’ve read about “diets” such as Paleo or Zone. Trying to figure out what to eat, when to eat it and how to modify your eating and shopping habits can get so overwhelming that it’s easy to revert to status quo.
My fellow blogger at Stupid Easy Paleo. She is also an amazing athlete. Her approach and style are both something I completely relate to. I like her blog so am looking forward to hearing and applying what she has to say.
ven if you don’t like dessert and chocolate doesn’t call your name daily, you’d probably be surprised to see how much sugar and starch sneaks into your daily meals. While this cleanse helps you move away from literal sugar, even more importantly it helps you identify and root out all the other sources of sugar and starch in your diet. It’s also a great way to kick start a real-food lifestyle, get your energy back, and lose a couple of inches while you’re at it.
If you have not come across Margaret at Eat Naked– you should check it out. Sugar is involved in many of today’s chronic conditions. Much more than fat- even though fat has always taken the blame. I am looking forward to getting some great tips and recipes to reduce refined sugar intake. I always need more inspiration to help control sugar intake!
Being able to let go of the stuff you don’t need and organize the things you do will be one of the most empowering things you ever do. It will give you more time, money, space, and mental energy to make the most of your life. I’ve seen too many people weighed down by clutter, and it’s my hope to help others escape the cycle
Robin Konie of Thank Your Body‘s book Clutter Free was one of my top 10 books I read in 2013. I am surrounded by stuff and have such a fear of throwing stuff away. Her book has really empowered me to move on and release some of the anxiety and ‘stuff’ clouding my life! She has also written some other amazing books and I have a great respect for her and I look forward to listening to her and I so need to get from 2678 to 0 in my inbox!!!
I also know that there is nothing more miserable than hating where you
live and wanting to be somewhere else, regardless of the reason.
But I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. We can learn to
be content with our situations, even if they are less than what we consider
to be our “ideal.”
Living 27 floors up with no outside space is not ideal for me and my husband loves getting his hand dirty and in the earth. I really am interested to hear Jill from The Prairie Homestead. I am already a big fan of her practical advice and awesome homemade dish soap!
Over 6 months ago, we were $50,000 in debt. I think it was when we actually sat down and wrote out each balance we had for each debt. We never thought of student loans as debt that should be paid off quickly…same for car loans. However, we realized that debt is debt and we wanted to get rid of it as soon as we could.
We desperately need a strategy to pay off our debt. I always struggle to live within my means and have a ostrich approach to finances most of the time. It is time for us to get smart and think about our present rather than the future and sort it out. I respect Jackie from The Paleo Mama and I like her style- this is one of the lectures I am really looking forward to
Part of what it means to be human is to understand our place in a pre-established universe. And inside that universe there are certain physical, chemical rules. If you increase carbon dioxide in the atmosphere there are certain effects that you have to deal with.
Josh is so passionate about using science to get us out of the funk we are in with our environment. I am keen to listen to his thoughts on how we balance science and nature. I wish we would use the technology we have for alternative green fuels.
