Happy New Year and 2013 Intentions Recap

Happy New Year!

Let’s see how I did with last year’s goals:

1. Eat more cleanly. Fewer processed foods; more vegetables. Eat more intuitively. Eat less emotionally.

I gave up all artificial sweeteners for good around March (when I did a macrobiotic month). I was not using artificial sweeteners regularly at that point, but they still snuck in (diet coke with free company lunch on Fridays for example). I’m so glad that I was able to nix them and my stomach is much happier without them.

Re: eating more intuitively and less emotionally, I also made strides here. I do still snack mindlessly sometimes (mainly late at night) but it’s much less often than in 2012 and before.

2. Go to sleep by 11pm more often. (2x a week to start… and increase)

Thanksgiving and Pregnancy Updates

Friends… wanted to share with you some updates of the past couple weeks. It’s been a good time.

The week of Thanksgiving my husband and I traveled down to Miami to visit my in-laws. We had a particularly beautiful week of weather punctuated by a few short rain showers (which were actually beautiful themselves).

We celebrated Thanksgiving with two lovely dinners. We also spend time with our friends (best man and bridesmaid at our wedding; same at theirs).

On Saturday I ended up at a figure drawing class with Bobby’s dad and sketched for three hours. I have gotten severely out of practice with my drawing but perhaps I will pick it back up.

New Years Intentions 2013

I meant to post this list a few weeks ago – but better late than never. Here is what I’m thinking for my 2013 resolutions/intentions/goals/whatevers! I don’t think I can do these all at once but I can definitely spread them out over the year.

2013 Goals – Go GO Goals!

1. Eat more cleanly. Fewer processed foods; more vegetables. Eat more intuitively. Eat less emotionally.

2. Go to sleep by 11pm more often. (2x a week to start… and increase)

3. Go to yoga 12x a month. Do Mysore regularly for 1 month. (Summer?)

4. Meditate 5 minutes per day (morning).

5. Get up earlier (this will come out of #2…).

6. Log my exercise (I used to do this). And use my Erin Condren planner.

7. Spend less money and save up to start my own business someday! I want to work for myself, not someone else. So I need Kapital.
