I didn’t really make any set in stone resolutions for 2013.
I kind of had more of a plan of attack instead.
This plan of mine isn’t a long one, there aren’t pages and pages of things I must do in 2013.
It’s simple and short, really.
On paper, that is..
One of my top points on my plan was to cut out more sugar and general crap from my diet. I’m happy and proud to say that the Clowns eat really well, and treats are, well, treats for them. Snacking around our house is generally vege sticks, air popped popcorn, some fruit, yoghurt etc etc. You get the picture, not much is the way of processed crap. When we go out, then it’s treat time – there maybe be a Happy Meal or a scone with jam and cream or a baby chino.
And me? Well I can honestly say I have cut back on all the bad snacking considerably. I have stopped reaching for what ever biscuit or chocolate I can find as a first option for snacking. I have stopped drinking my favourite milky and sugar-filled coffee, a vanilla or caramel latte several times a day. I actually eat breakfast now.
So looking at those changes, ‘considerably’ is good, right? It is I think…
But is it good enough?
Reassessing things now that we are over half way through February already and I’m not entirely happy with the changes. Yet. But that’s the good thing about a plan of attack. I can reassess and make changes and improvements where needed.
So the reassessment means a few more tweaks.
Less relying on fast food when we are all seemingly too busy to scrape dinner together at the eleventh (witching) hour.
Cutting up MY snacks wen I have the kids production line going each morning.
Keep cutting back on the chocolate reliance. This is my tough one!
And lastly, give myself that pat on the back I deserve. My family eats well, they are healthy and active. I just need to keep myself up to their level!
How are your plans for 2013 going? Have you taken a look back at them since New Years Day?
