Happy 2014!  A few days in, but still in the beginning.  I had a recipe post planned but can’t find the picture, so that will wait until tomorrow.  Glad I have leftovers 🙂

So…new year, new you?  Do you make resolutions?  I usually don’t, preferring to just make changes when I feel the need/want.  But this year, I know I have a lot to work towards.   And to get away from!  So I did make an effort to implement a few changes with the change in year.

First off, drink more water!  Since I stopped pumping in November (which made how much I drank obvious…low water, low supply), I haven’t been getting in nearly what I’d like to.  So I will work to drink more H2O.  I used to be so good with water that it was a no-brainer.  I’m not sure what happened!


Second, use my down time more wisely!  I have a bit, not a ton, of time just me and my phone.  When a baby falls asleep on me or in the car, when I’m putting the baby to bed at night, etc.  I’d been mostly playing Candy Crush and now Quiz Up (at least when out of lives) but I knew I should be reading, catching up with friends…spending that time on something useful. Games aren’t doing much for me.  So I deleted the apps.  I have played some CC on my computer, but I don’t have it constantly with me.

Last, cook more and eat out less.  Both for financial reasons and nutritional ones.  I make good choices when we go out, but it has become such the habit.  Good choices can only take you so far – there are a lot of unknowns when you go out to eat!  If you do it once in a while, the little unknowns and estimates are alright (and extra salt!) but the more you go, the more those little things add up!  It’s all about the little choices 🙂 I hope to post more recipes here too as a result.

What things are you changing up in 2014?
