Goodbye 2013 and Hello 2014!

Well as you can tell my posts have been lacking in 2013. It's been a difficult year but also a good one at the same time but how can that be do you ask? Well 2013 had a few cakes during the year and i am sorry due to the lack of posting. I've been meaning too i just find there isn't enough time during each day. Also having a six year old who is active and constantly doing things after school or work takes up a lot of my time as well.

So what did 2013 bring that was good?
-3 Vacations all with either friends of Family
-A few cakes during the year which i need to post
-Spending more time with my family as opposed to working. *this is the most important one*

So what was bad in 2013?
-Realizing you can no longer enjoy food to the extent i did before.
Over the last few years i always knew i had a dairy problem but kept eating it anyway. During the summer i got very sick from eating it and had decided to swear off of it for good. Anyone who knows me knows i love to eat and to enjoy food. So i would still indulge in dairy and still pay for it. I have had to learn to adjust my eating habits drastically and choose a healthier lifestyle in eating. Which means no more fast food (which isn't good for me anyway) or eating at Restaurants (i have to be picky about the restaurant). I have had to learn how to cook and bake without using dairy. Cooking has become an easier thing to do on a daily basis. No dairy for baking is still a challenge. I've been doing a lot of research and blog searches and i have found a few that are working for me at the moment. I'm not going to lie to you i still indulge once in while even though i know i will suffer for it.

So what will 2014 bring?

Hopefully a few more cakes, keeping this blog updated frequently and a cleaner eating habit. 2014 is the year that i will commit to making myself feel fantastic not only by the way i eat but also by taking a more active lifestyle. I also want to learn how to bake dairy free this way i can indulge in my own sweets!

Hopefully everyone has enjoyed a 2013 and make some amazing goals for 2014!
