Happy New Year!
I really hope everyone is enjoying special time with family and friends. I spent the rest of 2012 up in Chicago with my boyfriend’s family. It is freezing up here but I have also gotten to see some snow so it is worth it. The food here is great, and I love being in a big city where almost every restaurant we go to is educated on gluten-free.
While 2012 was full of challenges, I also have so much to be thankful for. As I look forward to 2013 I can’t help but be reminded I still have so much more to learn and I still need to take steps to reduce the amount of times I get sick. Here are a few of my New Year’s resolutions and wishes:
- I hope to be more prepared. This means relying less on pre-packaged foods and making more of my own foods from scratch. This also means less meals out and more meals at home.
- I wish that more restaurants knew what “gluten-free” means. Yes, I can have potatoes, no I can’t have soy sauce, no I can’t have fries that have been fried with battered onion rings.
- I will have more willpower over sweets. Perhaps I can incorporate sweets a little every day so I am not so deprived I go and spend $30 at Cookie Momsters.
- I want to exercise more. There are some days I have been glutened, I am tired, grouchy, my stomach doesn’t feel good, but after exercise I feel so much better.
What are your gluten-free New Year’s resolutions?
