However! I really feel like this year is the year for me. I have been thinking a lot about cutting out many bad food and drink items from my life. No, not alcohol - I love beer (good beer, that is) - but soda, sugary juices, milk with chemicals and hormones pumped into them, and so on. I know it will be a gradual thing, but I am sort of anxious to start... except I don't know when or how to go about this. Do I cut soda out first? If I cut it out so abruptly, will it have a negative effect and will I give up? Should I switch to something healthier in place of soda, such as tea or coffee?
Surprisingly, I really don't drink that much soda - it's usually when I am at school and that's only twice a week. I rarely drink out of a can or bottle, too - I usually crave the fountain drinks and they're only a dollar at McDonald's, so it's hard to pass up! But recently I've started realizing I don't really like how I feel after drinking it, not to mention the effects it has on my teeth and body. I am not very fond of fake sugar and chemicals and dyes, yet I continue to eat them so... yea.
Some of my other resolutions are to be a better friend, do my hair more, drink more water and don't be an idiot about money. I also am hoping that next quarter I can bring my own food, eat healthier breakfasts and cut spending money on food out altogether while I'm there. These are all resolutions I think I can follow, especially since I have been thinking about them for a few weeks now. I just would like to be a healthier person, inside and out, and hopefully once I stop eating processed and packaged foods, drinking sugary and diet sodas, I'll feel healthier, be more productive and that all my acne will go away.
Now, here are some photos from a few weeks ago - my friend's 30th bday party - we had a surprise party for him and everyone dressed up as nintendo characters.
