Time to Make a Change? (and a giveaway :)

Here we are once again, only a few hours away from a new year.  Everyone you talk to speaks of changes they want to make in their lives.  How many of those do you actually make?  How many of those changes do you actually keep? 

As those of you know who visit my blog or my facebook page, my life has seen some substantial dietary and lifestyle changes over the past year.  My plan is to continue with my healthy lifestyle and also challenge myself a bit more.  In 2012 my goal is to eliminate sugar completely from my diet and to increase my green vegetables.   I'm sure this will be incredibly challenging since I am a sugar addict, but I hope and pray that this time next year I will be able to report success!

So, my question to you:  What changes do you plan on making this year to your diet or lifestyle? Do you have a health challenge you would like to overcome through diet?  Leave me a comment below and let me know your plan and your comment will enter you into my first and last giveaway for 2011 :)

What better a book and resource to have than The China Study to make your choice to follow a plant based diet towards health and wellness. 

 Here is my giveaway:   
The China Study
by T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II 
"The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health"


The winner will be chosen at random and posted here on my blog on  January 14th!   
Rules:  Only one comment per person will be counted in the giveaway....
GOOD LUCK!

My wish for you is a New Year of love, light and excellent health.  
Happy New Year!!

As you know, I have changed a lot this past year, but still have a lot to do! I finally broke through my own fear of smoothies and found that I love them! I will be looking for new ways to incorporate these into my everyday. And, now that I am feeling better overall, I will start running again. I am also always looking for information and would love to read this book :-)
