Happy New Year

Here we go into another year. Kind of makes you wonder what we are in for! I usually don't make resolutions. This year is going to be different and I am going to blog it all so I have to be accountable!
I am going to be doing a 3 month no shopping starting tomorrow. I am not happy with how shopping has become a past time of mine. Its not that I spend a lot, but it does all add up. I want to fill my time up with other activities and get a rush from them, not from a great "deal" I found. So no shopping for anything that is not essential and no going into any stores. I am purging myself of it all. Okay, I think I am starting to hyperventilate.......
My second resolution is to get back to my low carb lifestyle. I am a carb addict and I need to purge those carbs! I feel way better when I am limiting my carb intake and the fact that I was gestational diabetic on insulin drastically increases my odds of becoming a diabetic. Add to that, that both my Father and Grandfather were diabetic and the odds are not in my favour. I want to avoid that if I can.
My third resolution is kind of a combination of the other two. I am trying hard to cook more from scratch and more raw foods. After having the twins, it was so crazy here that we relied on processed foods a lot. We just had too to survive. I am not happy with us eating it though and want it out of our lives. It is horrible for us and costs way more than eating healthy. So eat better and save money, works for me!
So that's it.. not much else except maybe trying to finish the book "understanding exposure" and actually "getting" it without having my head explode!
I am turning 40 in 6 months. I hate, hate HATE that. I never thought age would bother me, but lately the fact that this is coming up almost makes me have a panic attack. It really gives me a horrible feeling :( I am determined to go into my 40's better than I went into my 30's. I am hoping these resolutions will help with that.
