Given that we’re three full months in, now seems like a good time to check in and evaluate the resolutions that we made at the beginning of the year. Shall we? You’ll recall that I listed mine here, and that they included:
- Drinking more water
- Exercising regularly and consistently (i.e., 4x/week, all year)
A third that should have been added is to: 3. Read more books for pleasure.
I started tracking my exercise on my calendar, like a kindergartener, with shiny stickers. Every day that I exercise, I put a sticker up. At the beginning of February I started also tracking my distance,which is written next to the stickers. There’s something about it that’s actually pretty reinforcing, so I’m going to stick with it.
You’ll notice that I’m falling short of my 4x/week goal, and averaging about 3x/week. This is a vast improvement over the 0x/week that I was exercising before the new year, so I’m calling this one a win (with room for improvement, of course).
As far as drinking more water goes, I’m certainly drinking more during the course of exercise, and just doing okay at other times. Onward and upward.
How is everyone else doing with their resolutions? Still going strong, or have you abandoned them?
Now, back to what you’re really here for: the food.
This recipe comes from the blog The Little Epicurian. It’s simple, but yields delicious results.
Slater some ricotta onto the toast and top with strawberries. Drizzle a little honey over the top, and add a few chopped pistachios.
Simple to make, beautiful to look at, and delicious to eat.
