Neither Donny nor I are big New Years Eve celebrators. Last year, we stayed home and watched the original Muppet Movie and had champagne. So we didn't make any real plans for this year either. We both worked during the day, and my coworkers had some cupcakes to celebrate my birthday since none of us were here on my actual birthday.Whole30, that we started today. It's expensive changing all your eating habits...
And now, it's a whole new year! There are definitely things I want to improve this year over last year with myself.
First, I want to spend more time in God's Word and in prayer. I used to be really good about having a quiet time every day, but I've gotten out of the habit of doing it. I've never read the Bible all the way through in a year, so I decided to do that this year, and I'm pretty excited about it.
Second, I want to eat better. After reading It All Starts With Food, I'm slightly horrified at the food (both the substance and amount) that I have eaten in my life. So, Donny and I are starting the Whole30 today, which is quite a radical change for us both. After we're done, we'll see what type of foods we will re-introduce, but I'm positive it won't be the sugar-laden, highly processed, chemically-altered stuff that it's been.
Third, I want to be more present. I get annoyed when people are staring at their phones when they're with me, but I realize that I am the same way. So, I want to put my phone down more and BE with the people I'm with. And not spend unnecessary time staring at the TV when we could be actually talking to each other. In fact, Donny and I have already started having breakfasts and dinners at our actual dining table instead of in front of the television. It's been a great change that I want to spread to other areas.
