I've been thinking a lot lately about my monthly 2010 resolutions, and I want to post an update on my progress to keep myself honest. And real. I'm all about keeping it real.
January: walk an hour a day
This resolution is still in progress. I have probably walked about 1/3 of the days in 2010. Upon reflection I think I do better when I walk first thing in the morning. I am still working on making that happen. My next strategy is getting to school early to walk there. My school is set up like a shopping mall, so just a few times back and forth from end to end is like a mile. Seriously!
February: eat 3 fruits and 4 veggie servings daily

I've had much better success with this resolution, although I haven't met my goal every day. I have been much more diligent about adding fruits, especially apples, bananas, and blueberries to my daily diet. I tend to eat my veggies in the evening. This is where I usually run a little short. I'm convinced that more menu planning will help me shore this one up.
March: Alternate upper and lower body strength exercises daily.

Hahahahahahahahaha! I need to start this one. Seriously.
What I did accomplish LAST month was actually my August resolution.
August: Drink mostly water and tea.
This is a great one because before water and tea I was addicted to this:

These are full of artificial stuff, are bad for the environment, and they cost a lot of money - because I HAD to have the cans so the fizz wouldn't go out of the soda like it does in the bottles.
Switching to this helped:

It's gotta be this:

With ice, no sweeteners, and preferably with some fruit-infused green tea. YUM!
Or, of course, this:

I hope you are on track with your resolutions, goals, or whatever you call those things you want to accomplish in your life.
Happy Saint Paddy's Day!
