Looking Back at 2014

Monday, December 29, 2014

As 2014 comes to an end, it is time to look back and look ahead at 2015.  The beginning of 2014 was not the best because I was struggling to get used to being a stay at home mom, dealing with my weight gain and dealing with the day-to-day conundrums.  Once Fall came around, I woke up! And I am so glad I did. Sometimes we all need to hit our reset buttons. Your reset can be anything from making a new friend to trying something new. I did both this year, and I am so grateful I am ending 2014 on a high note. 

Looking back at 2014....

My favorite experience: Experiencing the Polar Express train for the first time with the people I love most.

My biggest accomplishment: Taking control of my health and committing to it. I began cooking more Paleo-inspired meals and actually trying out new recipes from Against all Grain board.  Also, paying more attention to my body. It feels great being a healthy role model for my family.

The best meal of 2014: anything with Spaghetti Squash! There are so many ways to cook it and Bon Appetit magazine never disappoints!

If I have a free day, I like to: Get lost at the library, take a day trip with my family ( here and here) and most importantly those beloved lazy days with my husband and daughter. 

My favorite book: The Alchemist (I read it for the second time so that I could share the reading experience with my husband, who ended up loving the book). I recommend this book to anyone who has not read it. 

My favorite movie: I had a hard time picking one so here's my top two. Chef and The Hundred-Foot Journey

I hope my look back at 2014 will inspire you to reflect on your year, and look forward to whats to come in 2015.  I would love to hear some of your 2014 highlights.
