2012- A few goals

Now that we're a few days into 2012 and back into a routine (up at 5:30am, work out, soup in the crock-pot, ready to start work again) I thought I would share a few of my nutritional goals for 2012.

1. Going meatless 1 day a week.  It took me a few weeks to talk Chris into this but we will be trying for one meatless dinner per week...starting tonight with black bean soup and homemade bread (see below).

2. Baking our bread.  Bread isn't that hard to make and I like the idea of having control of our food.  I made a few loaves of country french bread on Sunday and will be posting the recipe.  I think I will be baking it every other week as we don't eat a lot of bread.

3. Supporting local farmers/local shops.  We already buy most of our pork and beef from Ohio farmers but I would like to increase our support of the local Ohio food economy.  Most of our favorite restaurants are locally  owned as well.

What are your goals for 2012?

A few of my health/nutrition goals for the new year are remembering to take my vitamins, drinking more tea, and maybe trying out yoga! Do you know any good videos or guides to yoga because I don't think my gym has intro classes at a time I can take them.

Sounds like a good plan Alicia! I don't usually do yoga from a video so I don't have any recommendations there. I find it's easier to learn in a class with an instructor. Maybe there is a local yoga studio with intro weekend classes???

I just bought a groupon for 10 yoga classes at a nearby studio so hopefully I like it!

I'm sure you will! It's a nice change of pace from all the cardio work outs :)
