I’ve never been much for New Year’s resolutions, probably because after years of breaking my own vows, I’ve decided that happiness lies with setting the bar low. This year, however, I have a few general goals:
Food – Eat less sugar. We do pretty well with eating a ton of diverse veggies, thanks to the CSA. So about 90% of what goes in is great. What also goes in is too much sweet stuff. My goal is to eat sugar that I enjoy more and have it less often. So I will keep making excellent desserts, but try to cut the unsatisfying sweet stuff out.
Fitness – Start running again. After breaking my foot at the end of 2009, it has really taken me a while to get the strength back again. I did a bunch of other types of exercise in the interim, but I finally feel like my healing is in a place where I can start back with running. I’d like to get to the point where I can run 5 miles comfortably.
Stuff – I’m going on a shopping ban for a while. I know. With Christmas and all, this is a bit like swearing off chocolate cake right after having the biggest slice you can stomach. It sounds really easy right now. But we have a household goal of having less stuff and liking it more, and I think a 5 month rest from the consumerist tendencies will be a good way to regain perspective. I reserve the right to buy myself new running shoes if I need them, however.
I hope you all enjoyed a great start to the new year! I’m looking forward to another year of food blogging.
