Day 1 -- New Year Resolutions
- Eat Right.
Graduate -- I need one class that I can take in either the summer or fall of 2011. Then, it's cap and gown time
Travel -- We have plans for a cruise on our honeymoon and a summer trip to the Florida Keys. It would be nice to throw in a few weekend trips and maybe a winter Washington, D.C. trip.
Save -- I'm hoping to get our savings started this year after the wedding. It will be much easier after we are married!
Exercise -- Again, something I will do. I might have fallen off the wagon in the past two months, but it's not hard for me to grab my weights and get going again. I have lost my focus since I've been so busy lately, but that's just another excuse.
Eat Right -- I do a pretty good job at avoiding processed foods at lunch time and preparing my meals at home ahead of time. When I was enrolled in boot camp, they gave us an excellent meal plan that was tasty and nutritious! I'm addicted to making my own rice bowls that I even bought a rice cooker this week to always have cooked and warm brown rice at all times.
Edited to include the rice bowl recipe my former trainer gave me:
- 1 Chicken Breast (6oz) OR 98% Lean Ground Beef (6oz) OR Salmon or Tuna (6oz.)
- ½ Cup Brown Long Grain Basmati Rice OR 1 Red Potato (6oz)
- 1 Tbs. Virgin Olive Oil OR ½ Avocado OR 1 Tbs. Smart Balance Butter
- (All You Can Eat Extras) Veggies, Black Pepper, Balsamic Vinegar and Salsa
When I write out my plans in bullet notes, everything seems a bit more manageable. Happy New Year!
