I need a factory reset on my diet.


I’m still Christmas-ing at my mom’s house.  The Christmas hasn’t stopped since December 23rd!  And neither has the eating.  It’s like a disease: if there is food in front of me, I will shove it into my face.  Unless it contains gluten.  Which worked pretty well while I was visiting family in Ottawa and couldn’t eat most of the cookies, but hasn’t worked so well at my mom’s house where there are 6+ tins of gluten-free goodies sitting in front of me at all times.  It’s amazing how bad sugar and carbs make me feel, and it’s equally amazing how I keep stuffing them in my cake hole anyway.  ‘Tis the season!

I was trying to look back and see if I made any New Year’s resolutions this year, and I didn’t really, but I did achieve my one goal of eating my way to feeling healthy again.  Aside from this last week.  I’ve never enjoyed food as much in my whole life as I do now that I added meat back into my diet – and I haven’t felt this good in years.  I also lost 30lbs this year and am wearing a size 6.

So I suppose my New Year’s resolutions for 2013 are:

  • Keep eating delicious awesome foods.
    • Improve on planning meals in advance and going to the grocery store, so I don’t let it get to 6pm before I try to figure out what to eat for dinner, find I have no food, and end up eating pizza for dinner.
    • Try out more recipes and new things.
    • Learn how to use the crock pot.
    • Try fish.
  • Keep going to yoga and Pilates 5-6 times a week.
    • I’d like to work towards yoga teacher training this year.  I’m not sure I’m ready yet, but I want to start planning for it and deciding where to do it.
    • Learn how to do wheel, crane, and plow poses.
  • Do some more cardio, like running.
  • Do more outdoorsy activities, like hiking.
  • Spend more time with family.
  • Work hard.
  • Get haircuts more often.  Just ’cause.
