A new month is upon us. I like to use each month as a new beginning…time to take inventory and to decide if there’s anything I want to work towards.
March brought me Whole Foods March and I so enjoyed getting into food and cooking again! I shared a lot of my favorite meals here on the blog and hopefully they inspired you as well. However, I can’t say I ate nothing but whole foods the entire month. There was candy, ice cream and plenty of junk food. When I started the “challenge” I knew I would eat only vegetarian foods as meat does not interest me anymore. However, I feel as though I relied too heavily on dairy and as a result didn’t feel as good as I know I am capable of feeling.
That being said, in April I am going to focus on eating a vegan, plant-based diet. For those of you that get confused (hey mom) vegetarians simply don’t eat meat/poultry/fish while vegans eat no animal products at all…meaning no dairy/eggs in anything. I feel like this will really help to cut out all of the vegetarian junk foods I’ve been eating (hello cheese-its, ice cream and candies) while improving my energy and digestion. I just can’t do dairy too well these days.
I also want to focus on increasing my daily activity. I’ve been wearing my fitbit and while I seem to hit 10k steps on the majority of days, sometimes I’m only at 5k by the end of the day!! I’d like to hit a total of 300,000 for the month which averages 10k steps per day. I will do this by walking more and adding more non-exercise movement in my day instead of parking it on the couch for hours at a time.
The Tone It Up Bikini Series also starts this month and I’m looking forward to it. It’s a completely free and fun challenge and if you’re looking for something to mix it up I highly recommend!!
I’ve also made the decision not to weigh myself in April. Just not feeling it.
Do you have any goals for the new month? Share below. 🙂
