After posting my spiritual and financial goals for 2010, I was planning to combine the final two areas – physical and personal – into one post. However, once I got started, I realized that it would be WAY too long; therefore, I’m sticking to just physical goals for today.
- Re-read In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. This is one of my favorite books and was one of the first ones that really got me thinking about my food choices. I have already reserved a copy at the library and will pick it up next week. I should just buy the book; a few months ago, I put it on my wish list at PaperBackSwap and I’m now number 595 of 1,364 people wanting that book!!
- Eat three servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Yes, that is three. You must understand the point from which I’m starting. It’s not that I eat potato chips and cookies all day, but I’m used to such snacks as granola bars or crackers and tend to fill my meals with bread and starches as opposed to anything green. Three fruits or vegetables a day is attainable and I’m hoping to be consistent enough with it that I’ll move to four or five servings per day in a couple of months.
- Exercise four times a week. This is much easier in the spring and summer since I enjoy walking or bike riding after supper when it’s light later into the evenings. Now I’m going to make a concerted effort to get out sometime earlier in the day to burn some calories.
So, there you have it! I’m hoping to be a fitter, healthier version of myself twelve months from now!
