Committing to something for an entire year and writing about it intrigued me…so I pondered, as much as I can ponder about what I could do to join this not-so-exclusive club. “The Year of Living Biblically” – already done and burlap just isn’t my colour. “Living Oprah” – been there, someone has written about that and as much as I love Oprah, she is already a living legend and doesn’t need even more written about her. “The Happiness Project” – well I’m already pretty happy most of the time and that book made me MISERABLE.
As I was flipping through “O Magazine” (even I need Oprah to inspire me every now and again), I came across Dr. Phil’s monthly column. I love the guy, but some of his advice doesn’t apply to me. I’m not a teen Mom, a drug addict ruining everyone’s life around me or a parent abuser (at least that’s what my Mom says). Then…I saw it…the yellow brick road that would lead me on my journey…Dr. Oz! What could be healthier than devoting an entire year to this “Whiz-Ardly” doctor’s advice?*
So starting today, I’ll be doing just that. I’ll be using all of the tools at my disposal – a combination of his show, his monthly features in “O”, “You an Owner’s Manual” and his website to take me down the road to good health – I hope. I’ll be picking and choosing what resonates with me, and hopefully interests you.
*Dr. Oz in no way endorses this blog and I, in no way, want you to test anything that I am doing without consulting a health care professional.
