Why Go Organic?

According to Women's Health, we should go organic because:

1. Agricultural Chemicals Destroy the Soil's Natural Ability to Storeand Process Carbon.

2. Chemicals Poison the Air, Water, And Soil.

3. Smaller Doses of Chemicals Can Be Just As Dangerous As Large Doses.

4. Chemicals Are Not Necessary to Grow Food.

5. Organic Foods Are Healthier And Safer.

6. Eating Organic Is Easier Than Ever.

7. Government Subsidies Are the Primary Reason For the Low Prices of Chemical Foods.

8. Organic Farming Increases And Protects the Planet's Natural Biodiversity.

9. It's Not Too Late to Change—and Get Healthier And Happier!

I want to know more about organic eating... I would love to read this book.

    My Diary

    It is always suggested to log your progress in a diary when you are trying to lose weight. This is my version of a log of my progress on my goal. I thought a public log would motivate me more and help me find support. This project is not about losing weight (although I suspect and hope that weight loss will be a side effect). It is about living life the way I have always wanted to: Healthy, Active, and Happy!

The Goal

I realized while talking to my uncle John that I am living someone else's life. That changes today. The next 365 days will be devoted to becoming myself again.

The Goals:

Decrease my overall ecological footprint.

Focus on healthy nutrition and eating habits.

Eat locally and in season.

Only eat meat when necessary in social situations. Fish is still on the ok list.

Exercise daily.

Take care of myself; I am important!

No more complacency. It doesn't start tommorrow; it starts right now.
