New Year New You

“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” ~ Carl Bard It’s that time of year again... people are making their New Year's resolutions - this year maybe you have vowed to make it to the gym more, or to eat more healthily, maybe you have decided that you are going to completely overhaul your diet when the 1st comes around or that you want to start saving more money.... there is something magical about a new year - having a fresh start - a new beginning - where you can turn the page and start a new chapter. Yet, as magical as new beginnings are, research indicates that the majority of New Year's resolutions do not stick. Why

Did you wake up with a food-hangover?

Have you ever woken up and felt horrible - your mind felt foggy, you felt lethargic, heavy, bloated and full and you also felt horribly guilty and angry at yourself? For a minute you might have questioned whether you had drunk a bit too much wine or gin the night before - but then you remember vividly that NO - it was just all the food you ate before you went to sleep. Maybe you just over-indulged at dinner time, or perhaps once you had one piece of cake you just had to have several more, or maybe coming home starving from a long-day at work you made your way through far more food than you wanted to.... you have a food-hangover.
