It's nearly the end of the yea, which can only mean one thing – it's time for New Year's Resolutions! Other than the usual quitting smoking* here are my Paleo related goals for next year. I'd love to hear yours too!
I'm realising more and more how important sleep is. It impacts everything. No matter how well you eat and how fit you are – without adequate sleep it often feels somewhat futile. So my plan is to allow myself a nine hour sleep window at least five nights a week. If I wake up early, I didn't need it! I will try to do this every night – but have to be realistic about those days when I have no option but to get early (typically to travel for work)
Fermented food is so beneficial and I really need to make more time to prepare things like sauerkraut and kombucha! I'd like to have something fermented in my paleo diet every week – and also find a good kimchi recipe!
Another thing I'm not so good at is including Offal in my Paleo Diet. I plan to make an effort to consume things like liver, heart and kidneys on a regular basis. I think creating a good Pâté recipe will be a great way to do this.
I'm also going to pay much closer attention to my Vitamin D levels in the new year, so will have my levels tested more frequently and make sure I either get 20 minutes of sun exposure each day – or take a vitamin D3 supplement as close to midday as possible.
Towards the end of the year my organisation got worse and worse! I'm going to make sure I'm more organised and bring in my lunch each day – instead of spending my lunch breaks searching the city for something Paleo!
I'd love to hear your New Year's Resolutions. What are you going to start doing, do less of and stop doing altogether? Please share in the comments below
*I'm only joking. I've never been a smoker!
