I am not the "resolution" type, and I think the way some people approach them almost sets themselves up for failure from the start. I love my Paleo lifestyle but I will not say I resolve to eat that way for 365 days in 2013. It's not realistic and I know I would fail. Instead I write intentions for the year as well as make plans that can be checked off lists (I love lists) and set goals. I have many intentions, plans, and goals for myself but in case you need some inspiration, here is an example of each...
INTENTION: Laugh Daily
PLAN: Add Yoga 1x a week into my Crossfit routine
GOAL: Accomplish my first Muscle Up!!
I'd love to hear some of your intentions, plans, or goals in the comments section!
Another thing I am trying to do is eat breakfast more often. It's true that it is the most important meal of the day, and lately oversleeping or laziness has kept me from starting my days out right. No more!
This fruity green smoothie is adapted from a recipe I saw online, but tweaked to make more Paleo! If you are trying to cut fruit, obviously this isn't the smoothie for you. I have another Kale paleo smoothie with less fruit in it that I will be posting in the upcoming week so stay tuned!
I enjoyed this smoothie very much, and I hope you do too!
