I took a long time to think up what resolutions I wanted to make this year. I think I've mentioned before that I feel resolutions are often cliche and so I avoid them, but this year I thought I'd go ahead and opt for a few. My first one was that I would follow through. I then decided to only set a very few resolutions. That ups my odds of being successful right? I thought it should. The first was to avoid all white processed foods such as processed sugar, white flour, white rice, and white pasta. I didn't put a definite "no" clause on there because there are times when we travel or other such things when it isn't in my control. Plus I strongly believe that by using the word "no" your body and mind automatically start craving the forbidden. So they are allowed, I'm just trying to cut back.
Next I decided I wanted to eat more whole foods and eat at home more. I am hoping to spend a lot of time in the kitchen discovering new flavors and fun things to nourish my family and myself. The last thing I decided was to start a one sentence journal. The idea being that I only have to write one sentence a day, but can write more if I want. I hope that way I'll be better at capturing the every day little things that I want to remember when I'm old. Like how Cormac likes to put one leg up on the seat next to him in the shopping cart and sort of recline.
Thus my new year has begun. Just three little things to keep track of. We'll see how it goes.
In the meantime I have a feeling that the rambling is getting old and what you really want is to know who won the great Cookbook giveaway. So here it is. According to Random.org the number from 1 to 11 is 2, which means that the second person to comment wins. So the winner is:
im in!!! sad we missed you at thanksgiving and happy birthday!
Congratulations Cody! I'll get it on it's way to you. I'm excited you won.
To the rest of you dear people who entered you can look up The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook by clicking on the title if you are interested. I am going to try and blog a little this week, but my mom is coming to visit (yay!) so I make no promises.
