I hope you all had a safe and fun New Years eve.
Ours was pretty quiet... boring some would say. We just hung out at home, watched tv and read. A cup of peppermint tea was a strong as it got for me! lol... not really a drinker so not too worried.
In thinking about New Years resolutions I have decided setting some goals is probably more realistic for me.
The last twelve months have been completely frustrating for me health wise. I have had numerous tummy bugs and 5 colds!! along with chest infections and far too many antibiotics. As well as ongoing reflux, asthma and a now diagnosed (benign) lump that still needs to be removed so surgery is probably on the cards this year.
Before Christmas I made a promise to myself to get my health back. I know I have to live without my thyroid and with coeliacs, but I DONT need all the other crap.
So I am trying very hard to eat a REAL food diet. At the moment this means no processed grains or sugar and I also dont have a lot of dairy either. Which is actually not too hard...ok, so the sugar is a little bit hard....but some frozen fruit on a stick or a health coconut slice easily settles the cravings.
I have read some great books and found some excellent websites to help me on this journey and I have a great friend here who is a total inspiration and wealth of knowledge.
goal 1 : eat REAL food.
goal 2: get my family eating more REAL food
goal 3: be more organised
goal 4: try to get brave and make stuff to sell
goal 5: settle back in NZ
goal 6: meet some more bloggy friends in real life (and finally blog about the ones i have met!! oops!)
goal 7: turn 40 without freaking out!! ... yeah right!
goal 8: do some exercise
goal 9: start some study now all my babies will be at school
what are your goals/resolutions for the New Year?
