I haven't posted in soooooo long over here. And even this one is probably going up a week later than it should.
I am going to start setting some goals each month, document them here, and then follow up to indicate how things went.
Goals for January:
Continue working out 4-6 days per week, but focus on working pushing myself a little bit harder than I typically do (sidenote, I just this week started a 6 week, 3-days a week, boot camp style workout class. It's HARD WORK!).
* Eat a cleaner diet:
My husband and I are trying to forgo alcohol, dairy, caffeine, meat, artificial sweeteners, and sugar (keeping sugar grams per serving under 5 for anything we eat).
All I can say is it's going well so far, but I think it's going to be a looooong month. After this month I plan to resume my normal vegetarian, low dairy diet. But hopefully I will continue to eat far less sugar and artificial sweeteners.
*Read 3-4 books:
I am already on book #2, having read Portia DeRossi's "Unbearable Lightness" in about 2 days. Good book. Currently I am reading the first installment of the Dexter series "Darkly Dreaming Dexter".
* Lose 5 pounds:
I've gained almost 15 since June and I would like my jeans to fit a little less snug again.
*Clean up the mud room/office area:
I really need to tackle this project - this room needs some work!
* Cook 10 dinners I haven't made before.
That's it. I have much more to do, but I am going to keep it simple this month.
Happy New Year!!
