I really hate the word RESOLUTION.
To me, and many people I know resolution implies something that is supposed to be done perfectly, and if you don’t, then you’ve failed to keep your resolution. Do you know anyone that has actually ever kept an honest resolution? It requires determination and resolve that is typically very difficult to carry through an entire year, especially if you’re trying to do something very difficult or against your normal way of life.
So instead, I have my new year daily GOALS. I’m directing my efforts towards improvement, my motives are my day to day actions rather than an end goal (eg lose weight, etc).
1 – Eat more fruits and vegetables every day. 8-10+ servings to be exact. I’m a solid 3-4 a day kinda gal.
2 – Eat fewer processed soy based products. If I wanna eat soy, it’s going to have to come from tofu more often rather than Boca burgers, etc.
3 – Find more go-to vegan recipes that make not stopping for a bean burrito easier: things like my Black Bean Soup, and my Chili Mac with Kale.
4 – And unrelated to food – each day try to be a little more positive. This is an ongoing goal, I don’t think I’ll ever NOT have this goal unless at some point I start farting rainbows. Then I might cut back on the positivity.
What are your daily goals for 2012?
