A new year, a new you
By VICKI BRIMILCOMBE
Sometimes at the end of a year, events can
happen that bring about a shift in one s
thinking, a chance for a new beginning, a
chance to reinvent oneself even.
These events can be the end of a relation-
ship, the beginning of a new one, or the loss
of a loved one, to name just a few.
While causing grief and heartache, these
significant events can also provide us with
the impetus to move forward in our lives, to
change our outlook, to acknowledge past
hurts, but then let them go so we can make
a fresh start.
I had one of those mental shifts these
holidays caused by two events.
The first was an emotional reunion with
my sister whom I had not seen in about 20
years. Although her leaving to go back to
England caused me to go from a high to a
bit of a low, the bonding that took place
between us has inspired and given me
strength to make my own changes in the
new year. The second event was my ex-
partner (the father of my two children)
started a new relationship. Although this is
difficult for me, it has made me realise I
now have the opportunity to move on with
my life and deal with my negative feelings
and grief by doing something positive. This
opportunity to move on gives me relief from
the past -- I can now throw that monkey off
Positive changes don t have to be huge; it
could be something as small as making
more time to have fun with family or
friends, making new friends, eating
healthier, exercising more -- the list goes on.
For others, however, bigger changes may be
afoot. Just remember to take one day at a
Moving on is different for each of us. For
me, talking about my feelings and setting
goals for the new year are key to making a
positive move forward in my own journey.

Get on your
From tomorrow Sport Manawatu will be showcasing
our region as the best place to ride a bike by
celebrating 33 days of cycling.
There will be something for you to do each day on
your bike or related to cycling.
There are many reasons to hop on ya bike,
summed up as fitter, faster, free and fun.
Fitter: Cycling is a low impact form of exercise and
is one of the best ways to keep fit.
A 15-minute ride, five times a week, burns off the
equivalent of five kilos of fat a year.
Faster: It takes only 15 minutes on a bike to get to
most places in Palmerston North.
Free: Cycling can save you $100 a week in car
Three tanks of petrol at $100 each can buy you a
bike that you can have for life.
There are many great places to go with the family
for a bike ride and best of all it s a free activity and
there aren t too many of those.
Fun: Getting out in the fresh air with friends and
family is always fun.
Sometimes it can be hard to make sure we eat
healthy food while we are on the go .
It helps to be prepared and organise healthy food
options to take with you.
Fruit is a great snack to take while you re on your
The great thing about fruit is it s satisfying and
loaded with nutrients.
Try an orange, apple or banana, as they are great
on-the-go fruits that will fill you up.
Dried fruit, nuts and seeds are also a yummy
Pop them in a container and off you go.
They contain high amounts of energy to keep you
pedalling. Make sure you stay away from salted nuts;
almonds are a good nut to snack on.
Vegetables are also great to snack on throughout
People don t often think about these as a snack,
but vegetables like broccoli, carrots and celery make
a very healthy snack.
They can all be eaten raw -- just cut them up into
bite size pieces, and pop them in a container for your
cycling, and take some healthy snacks with you.
