So, Christmas is done for another year and now we are faced with New Years. I have been thinking about my Resolutions for this upcoming year. I will do a post for them later.
Today was not AS great a food day. I had a few more treats than yesterday.
I went shopping with my mom and youngest sister in Peterborough. It was a successful trip! Well… except that my mother came down sick (and has since been to the clinic to find out she has Shingles… again!).
Normally I walk right past the Larabars because the flavours aren’t my favourite. Well, today I noticed they CHANGED the flavours! So, I got a box which has 4 apple, 4 key lime and 4 PEANUT BUTTER! I don’t care for Key Lime so I gave them to my mom. After Costco we went to the Bulk Barn and I got Xanthan gum & guar gum to try adding to smoothies. We then headed to a local health food legend store, Joanne's (my grandma used to be friends with the original Joanne). I just got a few more Larabars there. I wanted to browse but my mom was feeling sick so we had to get going.
I did buy a new book at Costco… the Eat Clean Diet Recharged. I was a bit more strict last winter/spring with eating ‘clean’ (not totally, but about 6 days a week I did). I can’t be as strict as she would like, but I definitely plan on getting back at it by the New Year.
That’s about all from here. My camera battery died and I forgot the charger at my apartment… so there are no food photos until at least tomorrow night.
I leave you with a thought for while you’re thinking of your New Years Resolution. This is how Wikipedia defines the Resolution:
A New Year's resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a project or the reforming of a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. The name comes from the fact that these commitments normally go into effect on New Year's Day and remain until fulfilled or abandoned. More socio-centric examples include resolutions to donate to the poor more often, to become more assertive, or to become more economically or environmentally responsible.
Please let me know when you know what yours will be… I am curious!!
