We enjoyed our first Christmas as a family of five (hairy mutt included).... and it was awesome. Though we may not have had a ton of gifts under the tree we sure did enjoy getting to watch CWB enjoy the Christmas time and our traditions.
I seriously cannot believe it's 2014 already... who's with me on that one? Seriously crazy!
And now that it's a new year... and all that let's set crazy resolutions and fail. I tried starting my New Years resolution early... meaning in December. I have steadily been researching/reading/looking up ideas on what to cook that is healthier for my family and for me. So begins the Eating Clean!!!
Eating Clean... I am sure you have all heard of it. But I decided it's time to start being able to read the ingredients list on a package of food and know what the heck it means. There are some scary things out there... and I have realized the more good food I eat the better I feel. Junk food, Dr. Pepper, and alcohol are all but out of my diet now... and it did take me a long time to adjust my body to not "needing" these things on a daily basis. Very few alcoholic drinks are consumed :) and I try very hard to not eat out (dinner time is the hardest). I can admit that even though it is a long daunting task of fixing food every week for all meals, it is helping me.... and I am feeling much better about myself.
So here's to hoping that eating clean and starting work outs will bring a change in me that I can share with you. Here's also to hoping that you are having a great 2014 already and that things are looking even better on the horizon.
Happy (late) New Year from mumsitmommy!!! Stay warm my friends!
