Instead of coming up with a string of New Year’s resolution, I’ve decided to dub 2007 as Ken Hensley 2.0 … new and improved. I’ve been trying to eat healthier and exercise more — and have been moderately successful on both ends. In terms of eating, I’ve added more color to my diet and try to eat a mix of fruits and vegetables every day. I’ve even started drinking a variety of natural juices — pomegranate, cranberry, and a few of the Naked Juice blends (Blue Machine is my favorite). Just the other day I added V-8 to my rotation since I noticed that “one glass is equal to two servings of vegetables.” I figured it couldn’t get much easier than that! After drinking my first glass of V-8 I did feel better and more alert and even felt like pursuing a career as a trombone player.
The other thing I’ve done is try to limit my intake of foods that have high fructose corn syrup or similar sugars. Never a bad idea. I’ve also started eating more fish and have found a nicely seasoned wild salmon filet from Costco that I would recommend to anyone.
On the exercise end … it’s not progressed quite as well. I have taken out my bike for a few rides and walked a bit more but not to the extent I need to. I may have to come up with a beta version (2.0.1) sometime in the spring.
