Anyways, it's that time of the month again, where I get to divulge my commitment (or lack of) on this year's resolutions. It is my way of giving value to these otherwise forgotten resolutions.
So let's start with Resolution #1!
Resolution #1 Achieve my ideal weight:
I still weigh the same, around 260 lbs. Yes, no weight loss this month, unfortunately. But I am not disappointed or discouraged, because I know that I will lose this weight.
I have decided to stick with my flexitarian diet, eating meat on weekends or in special occasions. Unfortunately, my criteria for what constitute a special occasion can be very loose and flexible.
I am eating a lot less meat now, however, and I hope that this diet is healthier for me.
I am thinking of even making more changes to my diet. I'm thinking of even limiting what kind of meat I eat. I have no desire of eating more meat from these meat factories of today, where animals are simply treated as products.
Buying only grass fed beef, where cattle is treated humanely, is more expensive, and therefore not realistic to my budget, but on the other hand, my budget will guarantee that I really only eat meat on special occasions. The alternative of cheap meal is simply less attractive to me.
This is more than a leftist liberal turn to me but a Franciscan one, as St. Francis was one who cared deeply for animals, even calling them "brothers".
Resolution #2: Keep my room clean, year long.
I have seen some progress on this. I have rearranged some stuffs in my room and have more space in it. Things are more organized and clean than they were last month. But I still have too much stuffs and a desire has grown in me to give away a good part of it.
I was thinking of why I hate moving so much, and one reason of course, is moving all the stuff that I accumulated over the years.
|My mounting collection of CDs. Seriously, why do I need so many of them?!|
Resolution #3: Update my blog regularly, at least once a week.
Okay, I didn't post on my blog one week during lent! But other than that I have updated my blog pretty regularly, and I plan to continue doing so.
In fact, I want to update my blog more than once a week, maybe more than twice a week.
That's it for this month, see you next!
