Ok so one of the things I wanted to do was to create a list of changes and improvements that will help us lead more natural, healthy lives.  I am sometimes non-commital so I figure if i put it out there for the world to see, I have to live by it (I think it’s my integrity that makes me scared to commit but that’s an Oprah [oh how sad, there’s no more Oprah] for another day.  My list will probably change and you’ll notice that a lot of these things are seriously vague (please see #13-geez louise).  But I’ll be more specific once I’m ready to start tackling them.  Big breath…here we go:

  1. Recycle more, throw away less
  2. Reduce the number of one-time use bags we use
  3. Stop using SLS based shampoos and soaps (for baby too) – this means no ‘poo!!!
  4. Begin using a natural toothpaste
  5. Eat homemade meals at least four nights each week
  6. Reduce our water consumption
  7. Use primarily cloth/hybrid diapers until our baby is potty trained
  8. Reduce electricity consumption in the house
  9. Compost (this will be tricky as we have no yard)
  10. Limit fast food to once a month
  11. Limit soda to once a month
  12. Reduce the amount of high fructose corn syrup in my diet
  13. Exercise
  14. Switch to cloth wipes
  15. Drink more water (because I needed a nice round number)
