Is anyone else completely ready for a new year? I certainly am. I apologize for the lack of posts lately. A three week trip to the US, passing colds back and forth, and moving to a new apartment seem to have consumed all of my time lately.
Speaking of that middle point, I seem to have been sick constantly since the weather turned cooler. I normally have a fairly decent immune system, but a lack of sleep (a 13 month old who still wakes up 4+ times a night) plus less than stellar eating habits during the move have taken their toll.
I’m not really one to sit around and wait for things to change, so I’ve decided to do something about it. I’m also not one for New Year’s Resolutions, but I’ve decided to clean up my eating for the new year. I’m not into dieting, so I plan on just focusing on eliminating most sugar and processed foods and increasing the quantity of fruits and vegetables I eat in a day for the month of January.
You’re welcome to join me on this journey, but I do think health choices are highly personal. What works for me may not be what works for you. I have an autoimmune disease and am still breastfeeding, so that means I have to be a little more careful about what I eat, while still ensuring I get enough calories and nutrient-dense food.
Although I’ll check in occasionally on the website, I’ll mostly be posting quick updates on Instagram much more frequently. If you’re not yet following me there and want to follow along, be sure to follow @crossroadhealth on Instagram. Posts will include updates, personal food examples, and occasional recipes. I’ll try to check in once a week or so here, but we’re currently without internet so I may be a bit limited.
Best wishes for the New Year and good luck with any goals, health or otherwise, you’ve set for 2018.
