Tips for achieving your New Year Resolutions
View this email in your browser

Welcome to 2016

A new year has begun and it’s good to be back in the Caribbean after spending sometime in the cold. Here in Trinidad we are preparing for what is billed as “The Greatest Show On Earth”, Trinidad Carnival on 8-9th of February. Carnival is early this year and the country is already in a party mood. From now until 9th February there will be parties and concerts every week with tourists coming from all over the world to participate and listen to the sounds of sweet pan music.   It’s the biggest street party you will ever experience.   On the Wednesday after Carnival many take to the beach, especially Maracas Bay and Tobago, our sister isle, to continue the party. It’s all about music, sun, sea, sand and fun. 


Keeping those New Year Resolutions

What’s your New Year’s resolution? Perhaps it’s to make it to the gym on a regular basis or eat healthier. Maybe it’s to increase your finances or spend more time with family and friends. Here are the top 10 New Years resolutions according to the Statistic Brain Research Institute : Lose weight, get organized, spend less save more, enjoy life to the fullest, staying fit and healthy, learn something exciting, quit smoking, help others in their dreams, fall in love, spend more time with family. 

According to this research institute about 45% of Americans make New Year resolutions but only 8% are able to follow through on their resolutions. But don’t be discouraged. The research shows that people who make resolutions are more likely to commit and change than those who just try to change. 

Tips to help you succeed with your resolutions.

1 Keep it simple

Large bucket lists and extreme makeovers are a sure way to fail. Instead of having a long list pick one or two key things that you wish to achieve in 2016 and work out a plan to make it happen.

2. Make it tangible and realistic

If you want to lose weight indicate how much weight you want to lose and give a realistic time frame in which to do so. Rather than saying I want to lose weight say instead I want to lose 30 lbs and work out a schedule for doing so over the next couple of months.

3. Be specific

Set clear ambitions such as walking or running every Tuesday at a specific time rather than every week.  Being specific helps you to keep focus and allow you to achieve your goals. When I was creating my book I decided to write for one hour every day between 9 and 10 am. I was able to do this on most days because I had created a specific time and it worked.

4. Work with a coach

Trying to make major changes in your life can be tough when doing it alone. Many people struggle with the same issues year after year because they have no one to motivate them or keep them on track.  Working with a coach can help you keep things in perspective, set attainable goals and increase your chance of succeeding. A coach will guide and encourage and hold you accountable.

Here's a gluten free recipe from The Alternativedaily website, using buckwheat flour, for making your favorite pizza. Buckwheat is an excellent source of fiber and nutrients such as rutin, a glycoside known to strengthen capillary walls and improve circulation.


  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup of rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350℉. Mix all the dry ingredients together well, including salt, spices and herbs in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk water, olive oil and honey together and add to the dry ingredients. The dough should come together to form a soft ball.
  3. Remove the dough from the bowl and place onto a sheet of parchment paper. Add another sheet on top and roll out the dough to a quarter-inch thickness.
  4. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper, and place the bottom sheet together with the dough onto a baking sheet or pizza pan. Bake for 15–20 minutes until the dough feels slightly dry.
  5. Remove the pizza crust from the oven and add toppings. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
It takes about 15 minutes t prepare and 20 minutes to bake. Enjoy!
