What Exactly is a New Year?

Happy New Year 2016

Okay, so we’re four days into 2016….how are things going so far?  We all seem to look at the start of a new year as chance to start a new life.  We make resolutions.  We set goals.  We wipe the slate clean and start fresh.

But what exactly is a new year?  Well, it can be many things….or it can be nothing at all.  The best way to define a new year is OPPORTUNITY.  But then again…..that can be said about every single day of the year.

How is your view of the world today?  How do you feel about all those new ideas and personal changes you wanted to go after in 2016?  Yeah, and it’s been only four days.

I’ve said once before that “every day is a new life to a wise man”, and that phrase is what can keep us all going on all those days that take place between 2016 and 2017.

The new year didn’t happen four days ago.  It happened today.  Get out there and #MakeitHappen.

    Living in the present. It is a difficult concept. I am comfortable thinking of this at the beginning of my ride. I find it difficult to be present with relationships. The question I continue to ask myself and others is, What can I do for you in the future?

    You are so right, the opportunity to start a new life is here for us today. Not in the future whenever X happens or when you get Y. It does not matter what day it is, be present with what is happening right now.

    That is my resolution for the New Year. To have gratitude for what I have right now. And if I add that all up, it turns out to be quite a lot.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
