*Get my health back! I have Celiac Disease and Hashimoto's, a form of hypothyroidism
*Better eating and exercise habits! No, I'm not going on a diet, but I have to change my eating habits. Cutting gluten is a no brainer but I've discovered that cutting dairy is really helping me too! I'm not sure how long I'll be without dairy but this might be a lifestyle change that will last forever. Gluten wasn't hard, dairy is very hard! I love my coffee creamer, ice cream, yogurt, milk and
*Blog time! I hope to increase my recipes on here and share the journey of going gluten and maybe dairy free! I'm trying the Paleo diet soon and would love to document this new chapter in my life! I also love looking back on old posts about the kids, so I plan on keeping up to date on them too! I really fell off the blogging wagon last year! Now, we have a new computer and I have zero excuses to NOT blog
*Decoration and DIY! I have stared at my plain, empty walls for almost a year and a half and I'm sick and tired of compiling about how empty our house looks! I have pinned so many gallery walls, crafts for decorating, and refinishing furniture! This is the year folks! I have two rooms on my list to paint, Jack wants to move into our guest room, so there's a fun project
*Focus on my family! I admit, I don't always but my family first and for dumb, not good reasons! I pick unloading the dishwasher or folding clothes over playing with my kids, I get on Facebook or Pinterest and ignore them, I read a book at night instead of spending time with Eric. Not good and not how I feel! My husband and children are my life and I love them more then anything! I have to show them, be there, be present, be patient, be kind....I'm not always those things, which isn't fair to them!
*Be more positive! I'm normally a very happy, look at the brightside type of person...not lately though! The past, oh, year, like I said was very hard on me but my attitude towards it could have been a tad better! OK, A LOT better! I had the poor me, victim, everyone else, FOMO
I know there is more but I have a messy house, kids running everywhere, and a husband due home from work soon! Here's to a new year, a new Liz!
