Reflections and Goals for 2010

Goals I accomplished/kept:
  • I am meal planning much more consistently
  • Thanks to the discovery of allergies (wheat, dairy, sugar), it jump started us into eating much healthier - I now make almost everything from scratch - and our cupboard has been purged of pretty much all processed foods!
  • I have begun buying more organic, as the budget allows - at least for the important stuff (ie, leafy greens, carrots, peanut butter, etc)
  • I have purged a good majority of plastics from the kitchen (& home), and replaced them with either stainless steal, glass, or wood....   
  • I have switched KB & myself (and all household products, including laundry soap) to non-toxic/natural products.... 

  • I bought some Essential oils, and have begin using them
  • I finally got my SuperMom vitamins, and are taking them
  • I have only had a handful of sodas (resolution: cut back to very few, if any)
  • I have become much more conscious about what is going into our mouths/bodies (label Nazi! :)
  • We have set up and have been implementing a weekly date night! <3
Ones I did NOT accomplish
