A New Year
So I didn’t really want to do a “resolutions” or “goals” post, because I’m sure you have read 80 million of those lately. But there are 3 things worth mentioning this year:
1. As a family we’ve decided to spend at least 3 nights a week eating dinner at the dinner table. We’ve gotten into a bad habit of eating on tv trays in the living room as we catch up on our favorite shows (Glee, Cake Challenge, etc). And we’re so damn busy that some nights we all eat separately and eat different things!
The best way for me to tackle this little goal was to download a meal planning app (MealBoard).
It’s pretty awesome – I entered the recipes I wanted to make this week, hit “sync”, and it created my grocery list. And as I checked off the items while at the grocery store, they were automatically removed from the list. Easy Peasy. I normally just wing it!
Btw, I have tried a million times to replicate Deagan’s shrimp tacos (we all LOVE them!), but they’re never the same. They’re delicious, but not the same. Anyone have any insider information on that recipe?? For real, I’m not joking.
2. This is the year of triathlons for me. I still love running, and have a few running goals this year, but I need a change. I need something to challenge me, and since it scares the crap out of me every time I think about it, I think this is it.
3. FIND PEACE. Not world peace (that would be lovely, though!), but peace within myself.
I want to find an inner peace, one that accepts me for me, one that loves me for who I am, and one that is confident to just be me. You would think that since I’m 35 (crap, crap, crap), I would have found this already, but nope. Not yet.
I really thought 2011 was going to be MY YEAR, but maybe 2012 is. I have a good feeling about this year.
- Do you meal plan??
- Seriously, do you have Deagan’s special shrimp taco secret that makes them so incredibly delicious?????
