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)

Bobby and I went to yoga together last night and at the end of class the teacher left us with 3 suggestions to ponder on, in savasana and meditation, but also over the next few days.

3) Being the star of your own movie.
Little nuggets like this are one of the many reasons why I like yoga. It is so much more than a physical practice.
I will leave you with a recent (this morning) bump picture I snapped:

Yesterday Bobby and I went to visit some good friends out in Dumbo (Brooklyn) for a nice brunch. Afterwards we headed over to the Brooklyn Ikea. Got a few things…
^^ Ringskar Kitchen Faucet (with pullout spout). ^^
Last time I was at Ikea (in Paramus, NJ) they were out of this so I have been meaning to go back and grab one when it came in stock.
^^ Apelskar sink faucet (for the bathroom). ^^
I also got these cute holiday lights (below) and put them in my downstairs hallway, which was sorely lacking in light. Love them.
I was just browsing through last year’s posts and I came across my 2012 new year’s resolutions. Here is how I did last year (crossed out means I did not do it; bold means I did):
