New Month’s Resolution, April

by Alison on April 1, 2010

I’m still liking the monthly resolutions, and this month I will mostly be reinforcing the ones I have picked up but I do plan to add one or two new ones.
I hope that these things that I add monthly will add up to lots of changes over the year, taken in smaller more manageable bites. So New Month’s Resolution will be a regular feature.

To review last month my resolutions were

1. To eat vegetarian one day a week. (old)

2. To enjoy some form of activity every day. (old)

3. To lose 2 pounds. (less since I am out of town or have family in town for almost 2 weeks)

4. To cut out artificial sweetners, so no yogurts, juices, sodas, coffees, etc with splenda, nutrasweet or the like.  If I want something sweet it have to be from something that grew, either fruit or <gasp> real sugar, honey, molasses etc. (old)

5. To beat my 5k time and try to run the whole thing (all of it the whole hill)

Number one was still easy, so it will drop off the list of resolutions as it is no longer a challenge.   I got at least 30 minutes of activity every day except when I was sick.  Most days I did more than 90 minutes, several days I worked out then walked the dogs with Ben in the evening for another 30-45 minutes..  I lost 2.8 pounds or 0.8 pound more than my goal, I’ll take it.  I had artificial sweeteners once in a soda from my new soda maker, doh!  I did buy some stevia flavoured soda mixes to try.   I ran my 5k race, ran it, all of it, and improved my time by 4 MINUTES!  They took the hill out but still I feel really good about this.This month

1. To enjoy some form of activity every day. (old)

2. To lose 5 pounds.

3. To cut out artificial sweetners, so no yogurts, juices, sodas, coffees, etc with splenda, nutrasweet or the like.  If I want something sweet it have to be from something that grew, either fruit or <gasp> real sugar, honey, molasses etc. (old)

4. To run at least 12 miles a week

5. To floss daily, not weightloss but a resolution none the less and the one I committed to on Nicole’s site Prevention RD as part of her Do what you Don’t Challenge
