Where Does The Time Fly?

I can't believe the end of 2013 is right around the corner! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and before we know it we will be welcoming in the New Year. Oy vey, what a year this has been!

Now, back to discussing how fast 2013 flew by. Did it feel that way to you? It seems like it was just the New Year! I began my health journey about a year ago, and honestly I am disappointed in myself. I did not give 2013 my all, I fell off the bandwagon more times than not. But you know what? Thinking about it won't change it, I need to make some serious changes in the coming year. I plan on indulging tomorrow and Christmas Day, in moderation of course. On Thursday I am starting a (hopefully) two week journey on Banana Island. If you haven't heard of Banana Island it's a simple cleanse where you just eat bananas & leafy greens. I think this is the best way for me to reset my palate and stop craving junk food. This will also give my digestion system some much needed rest.
This year I plan on recommitting myself to a vegan, plant based lifestyle. After Banana Island I also plan to eat highly raw, meaning the majority of my calories will come from fresh fruits & vegetables. I'm looking for optimal health. I want to feel my best and after month's of researching, I believe this lifestyle will work best for me.
Banana Island is going to be a "mind over matter" situation. I will prove to myself that I am stronger than my cravings and I am so excited to see how I will feel at the end of two weeks! I'll be blogging my way through it, so stay tuned!

Just because I didn't meet my health or fitness goals doesn't mean 2013 was a bust, it was actually quite enjoyable!
Some positive things that have happened this year:
I got engaged to the love of my life, Zac, on December 7, 2013
(no wedding planning yet, we're thinking the Summer of 2017)
I started this blog!
I followed my heart, withdrew from school, and am pursuing my dream
I had my first garden, let's just say it was a learning experience
I went on an amazing cruise with my family & fiance
I prioritized my life (hence starting Banana Island right after Christmas)
And many, many more..
I'm ready to work my butt off so I can look back next Christmas & be PROUD of myself. So I can look at how far I came & never look back. I am ready to impress myself ;)

Have you been to Banana Island? Would you want to go?
How are you bringing in the New Year?

2013 went so fast! I feel like I blinked and it was over. Even if you didn't make all your goals it sounds like you still had a great year!
