Before we talk New Year’s goals (and really what is a post on New Year’s Eve without some kind of resolution or goal?), I’d like to note that this week I will indulge in some creamy pasta, a butter-drenched steak, a meatball hero, whipped potatoes, a big hunk of stinky cheese, chocolatey desserts and possibly several glasses of wine and champagne.
Then! Bob and I go PALEO for a month starting next week. Or more accurately, we attempt to. It’ll be an experiment in health and habits and a way to assess what we can and can’t live without.
During and after Paleo Month, both of us will cut back on sugar – even on the weekends (!) which is totally new territory for us- and that will be an ongoing thing. If you’ve been following for a while, you know my weakness for all things sweet. Though with eachother’s support, I think it’ll be much easier for us to kick the sugar addiction. I’ve been back and forth for years. There are weeks when I do well and there are weeks where I need to have a big black & white cookie right after dinner every single night. Like a fiend. I’d love to not crave the sugar as much as I do.
So here’s to a new year and better habits. I hope.
