More Heels, Less Milk

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to wish our Merry Christmas a Happy New Year! Don’t get me wrong. Christmas was great and everything, but I’m ready to move on, pack up the decorations, and get my house back to normal. Ok, maybe normal is a stretch, but at least back to the way things were before Thanksgiving.

I’m in that awkward phase of winter break where I’d really just like to get back into a routine but the kids would rather die than go to bed on time.

The holidays really sucked it out of me this year. I don’t know what my problem was, but I never really ever got it together. I almost don’t even know what to do with myself now that I don’t have to worry about cooking, shopping, or the three Advent calendars I failed miserably at this year.

Of course, the approaching new year has already started torturing me with it’s invitation to change things, accomplish stuff, and be a better me. But, really I just want to wear heels more.

I thought about it, and I never wear heels anymore. I actually think my feet have morphed into flat pancakes due to overuse of flip flops. I used to love to wear heels. Even if I was casually dressed, I’d throw on a cute pair of espadrilles, and all of sudden things looked better. Especially my ass. 

But, now my backside just gets stuffed into a pair of jeans and accented with flat pancakes instead of a cute pair of wedges.

Heels represent mood, confidence, and fashion sense. Three things I know must be suffering as a result of my lack of wearing them. I’m convinced heels are just what 2013 needs.

I’ve spent some time away from my blog this week to reflect and think about where I want to take things next year, but instead of doing that that I’ve been reading up on the benefits of a dairy-free diet. According to The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Dairy-Free Eating (affiliate link)  persons of Asian descent have the highest rates of lactase deficiency, at more than 90 percent. Low lactase levels lead to lactose intolerance, and blah blah blah…eliminating dairy is really really good for you. I’m Korean, by the way. 

I’m pretty sure that every problem I have will be fixed if I cut dairy out of my diet.

I bet it’s hard though, because I love bread and cheese and stuff.

I am sure about the heels, though.

I just need to buy some.

      I’m sipping on a coffee with vanilla almond milk instead of creamer. That’s one thing I’ve been able to to do. It’s definitely a lifestyle change! It’s going to take some discipline.
