Welcome, 2014!

Happy New Year, everyone!

I’ve been editing New Year’s content for a couple weeks now and thinking about what I would resolve to do. You might know this about me, but I like to improve myself all year round. I rather obsess about accomplishing and am disappointed in myself when I don’t cross goals off my list early and often. I’ve been really good about not eating gluten (not any since Christmas Day!), but last night I had a dream that I ordered quesadillas while I was out and they came on flour tortillas. I felt like a failure in my dream. Hopefully I wouldn’t react like that in the light of day, but the truth is I might.

Here are my goals for 2014.

  1. Stop focusing on the end result and enjoy the ride.
  2. Work on core and arm strength.
  3. Eat more veggies and protein.
  4. Eat less processed foods.
  5. Be more forgiving of myself and others.
  6. Go zip-lining.
  7. Find a fulfilling new job.
  8. Read more, social media less.


Here are a couple of my favorite articles from the last couple of weeks, if you need ideas for your own resolutions.

I’m a journalist, nutritionist, doting auntie, one-time bobsledder, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
