January: Energy
Goals: Eat better, exercise

If there are any steadfast rules to a happiness project, it should include beginning with a focus on physical health. For as long as I can remember, I have struggled with low energy. The older I get, the more I have to do, and the worse it gets. A large part of this, I have come to realize, is due to all the crap I put in my body.

I am sure I am not alone in my battle to cut ties with unhealthy habits. Fast food is convenient and pop tastes good. Instant gratification is the best kind.

This month, my happiness focus is increasing energy through a better diet and more exercise (which, for me, means any exercise. at all.). Lucky for me, I have a wonderful partner who has much better self-control. At the beginning of the month, he decided to resume a ketogenic diet. Hopping on board was an easy decision, and the transition was less painful than I thought it would be. What this means is cutting out all sugars, including from foods like pasta, bread, and worst of all, potatoes. The result is a ton of amazing food without any of the drag that comes afterward.

I honestly can not remember the last time I felt this good.
