I am typically not a huge fan of New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t know if that’s a product of my own failure to adhere to them in the past, or of my dislike of the idea that people seem to feel the need to create a “New You” in the new year. I am pretty happy with who I am overall, and although there are certainly some habits that I’d like to change or implement, I’m really not looking to fundamentally change who I am as a person.
This year, however, I am doing some new things, and I’ve created #newthing2016 to mark my efforts. One of my new things is to use Instagram more, so if you follow me over there @primalmamalifestyle, you’ll see all about it.
So far, I think I only have 3 new things that I’ve implemented. Well, maybe 4.
The first is that I’m drinking a green smoothie with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (almost) every morning. I actually started this before the new year but I’m counting it anyway. I like it because the collagen is great for my skin and hair, and the kale and spinach are just great in general. And I think I need more greens in my diet, so this is doing the trick.
Thing two (and I can’t even believe I’ve had to resort to this) is jogging with Jackson. We found a used jogging stroller on Craigslist, and Mike got me some new running shoes for Christmas. The reality of my life right now is that I really don’t have the time to get to the gym on any kind of consistent basis. But I need to work out. I don’t feel good if I’m inactive. And my need to work out eclipses my hatred of running right now. So I’m doing it.
Thing three, which I alluded to above, is using Instagram more to build my following and promote my blog. Another new thing is that I am going to post more on the blog. I haven’t made this one official yet, but it’s definitely in the plan.
And the final #newthing that I’m doing isn’t really a habit, but it’s definitely something that I will be using more often, and that is silicone baking cups. I can’t believe I’ve only just gotten my first set. They. Are. Amazing. I made egg muffins yesterday, and instead of having to hack them out of my muffin tin with a chisel, they popped out of the baking cups effortlessly and beautifully. I am never going back. Ever.
So that’s it for now… Stay tuned for more content coming your way soon. Recipe development is in the works.
