Since writing my October health goal wrap-up yesterday, I’ve been racking my brain trying to decide what my health goals for November should be.
I don’t want to cut myself too much slack, but I also don’t want to over-do it. That could easily happen with Thanksgiving coming up…not to mention my 30th birthday.
Yeah, I’m turning 30. It’s looming over me. It has been since my 29th birthday last year. Sometimes I’m excited, and sometimes I dread it. It’s just a weird milestone for me. It’s like I suddenly have to accept that I’m an adult, like having kids with multiple health concerns hasn’t done that already.
So, I think I’ve decided that I will continue with last month’s health goals with one addition:
Attempt to make Thanksgiving sugar free and gluten free, if it doesn’t stress me out too much.
I want to make some sugar free food items this year using stevia, in addition to making them gluten free, but that could be hard. Last year, I made a vegan pumpkin pie, which was a miracle in and of itself. Attempting to do that same pie using stevia and making a gluten free pie crust from scratch (that is also egg, dairy, nut and peanut free), will be…interesting, to say the least.
So, if I can’t make Thanksgiving happen without sugar and gluten, then I’ll just go off my diet for the holidays. I will test some recipes as I can, but I don’t want to over-burden myself as I have a new job right now and just dealing with life in general. I need to focus on my mental health more than anything. That needs to be my main priority. Without that, I have nothing.
So, my goals for this month are:
Try my best, but don’t push myself too hard.
I think that’s a good goal.
Question: What are your November health goals?
