ken hensley 2.0

By January 25, 2007Family

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.

    Wow. Sounds like you’re doing great. I think you’re right – never a bad idea to limit foods that aren’t good for you. That said, I’m a big preacher of “everything in moderation.” I think that HFCS is fine – actually very similar to other sweeteners – as long as you keep an eye on how much you are having and eat other healthy diet fillers…

    Keep up the good work!
