So it's finally New Years Eve, the middle point of looking back at 2012 and looking forward to 2013. This year has had it's super lows as well as super highs, complete with regular streaks of absolute normal. A year ago I was a single parent, spending New Years Eve with Zooey-Belle watching Yo Gabba Gabba Live at our local park, followed by fireworks. Today I'll spend New Years Eve with my husband, my daughter and my family. Swimming, watching fireworks and trying my hand at making a cocktail. A lot can change over a year and I think we are complete proof of that.
Last year my resolutions for 2012 were to be a better Mum (nailed it), to go to the gym (...eeeyeah) and go to Disneyland which I so totally did on my honeymoon. So two out of three ain't bad. This year I only have two and I don't think either of them are too hard to accomplish.
As a person I am unhealthy, I have tried to change that but haven't stuck to it like I should. The majority of the time I go without dinner, second to that I have a cup of tea and toast, while continuously eating through out the day. It doesn't help at all that I work at a shop that sells baked food with the only vegetarian options being loaded with dairy. I also don't intend to go vegan and stick to the frozen meat substitutes that I relied so heavily on in the past. I am very happy that I discovered the raw side to the vegan diet because raw, unprocessed foods with incredible flavours is where I want to my taste buds to be. Greg recently brought himself a food processor which is going to help a ton. On a side note I got a bread maker for Christmas which is going to be awesome!
So 2013 is really about self improvement and I think the beginning of something a lot bigger. What does 2013 mean to you and what are your New Years resolutions?
