I have plans to be more active in the new year. Today I called two people at Ouachita Mountain Hikers to let them know I plan to start hiking with them. I mailed in my $5.00 annual dues today.
The Ouachita Mountain Hikers hike on Thursdays and Saturdays. The Saturday hikes are easier hikes that are 4-6 miles long. The Thursday hikes are more difficult hikes on forest trails that are 8-12 miles long.
I bought the daypack today at Walmart to use on the hikes. It will hold my stuff...my food, water, camera, phone, layers, etc. This little daypack was $8.88, and I think it will work just fine.

Lunch today was a fruit smoothie, 1/2 avocado, and two goodie balls.
After I returned from shopping I popped some popcorn in a hot air popper, sprayed it with organic olive oil Pam spray, and sprinkled nutritional yeast on it. Then I had a pear and a banana.
For dinner I am serving steamed broccoli; steamed cabbage; salad (romaine, cucumber, green onions, tomatoes, and lemon juice); suaerkraut; goody balls, veggie cocktail, and peppermint tea. I won't eat all of this, but that is what I will choose from. It's better not to eat the steamed veggies, but sometimes when it is so cold I feel like I need them.
I have ordered a copy of The 80/10/10 Diet by Doug Graham to use this year to help me stay on point. The biggest mistakes people make on 80/10/10 is not eating enough food, not getting enough sleep, and not drinking enough water. The 80/10/10 diet is a raw food diet made up of 80% carbs, 10% protein and 10% fat. The Ornish diet is similar, but uses cooked foods.
To health and happiness.
