I woke up this morning and the sun was shining. It wasn’t freezing (I think I finally feel safe enough that it’s okay to throw out my very battered winter coat). I wore a sundress to work (my theory on sundresses is that they’re basically pajamas you can wear outside—thusly the best clothing option ever). I made protein pancakes with cauliflower (I’m still perfecting the recipe, but once it’s good enough to share I’ll post). I just know that June is going to be a great month.
As we enter the halfway mark for 2014, I can’t help but think about where I would like to see myself at the end of the year. And with that in mind, here are my June 2014 Resolutions:
- Trust the plan. I mentioned in my last post that I’m seeing a nutritionist to help heal my very battered metabolism. Years of restrictive eating and oodles of exercise has taken it’s toll on my body, and since I would like to be able to eat a normal amount of food again without gaining obscene amounts of weight (like the last two years) and because in the next year or two The Fella and I plan to make some shorties, I want to have a health functioning body, and a healthy relationship with food. Having said that, I’m very set in my ways, and this is a hard process, especially because it doesn’t mean losing the weight I gained in a particularly quick fashion. This month, I will be faithful to my plan and see how I feel.
- Dry June. Once a year I like to have a month of complete abstinence from alcohol. For some reason it always happens in the summer months, when refreshing cocktails are plentiful. Having said that, I think it’s good to get in touch with my inner teetotaler once and a while. This month nary a drop of spirits shall touch these lips.
- Romantic walk in the park…or street…or Broadway…or to the bodega. The Fella and I just came back from trips, being away from home, and routine, and the food you know is “safe” can be rough on health conscious folk and health conscious bodies. Over dinner last night Roy said he’d really like to start doing more cardio. Because of my current plan with my nutritionist I have to be careful about how much cardio I get (and I’m a total cardio queen). While my serious sweet sessions per week are limited, evening strolls should be okay. Plus it’s nice to have some unplugged time together. Our goal is three walks a week.
What are your resolutions for June?
