New Year, New Me (or Something Like That)

Did you make New Years resolutions? It’s week 3 of January and I’m wondering how those are going! When I think of resolutions my thoughts immediately jump to goal setting. What is a realistic thing I can accomplish in this month, in the next 2 months, perhaps in the next year?

Here are my new years goals for 2017 –

  1. Camp 10x this year
  2. Eat less sugar
  3. Be generous with my time
  4. Quality over quantity – relationships, material items, experiences, etc
  5. Ask good questions
  6. Be present

Each day is a new opportunity to be better my friends.

This month I’m doing a Whole30 challenge. It’s going well so far – day 15! – and I’ve gotten to try a ton of new recipes. I’ve officially successfully prepared a pot roast and last night I made my very own Tomato&Squash soup. Yum!

In the spirit of giving, here are some of my favorite food bloggers –

Molly Yeh My Name is Yeh – the soup recipe was from her book, “Molly on the Range”. Lots of tasty bread recipes for after Whole30

Danielle Walker Against All Grain – paleo, simple, and delectable!

DanaMinimalist Baker – easy recipes with 10 ingredients or less, though I usually add some type of meat


  1. Good resolutions 🙂 I have the Whole30 book and love the recipes in it, but I haven’t quite gotten myself to start! How was the first 2 weeks? -vivian

    1. Thanks! The first week is pretty rough. In general, I felt really tired and hungry. I probably wasn’t eating enough at my meals. I was also so sick of eggs by the end of the first week but I’ve made some different recipes and that helps a lot! You should totally try it! No wine is the hardest part 😦


      1. ugh yeah I remember when I did a semi-Whole 30 thing before I moved to the UK, and eggs were a big part of many meals/breakfasts. I love em though, so we’ll see! I’ll give it a try when I come back to CO and let you know how it goes 🙂
