My First Attempt at Resolution

Sunday, January 02, 2011

So, I have never been one for new year resolutions. I always felt that if I decided to do something for an entire year I would just feel let down if I stopped doing it half way. I am not going to put a number of my resolution, I am just going to resolve to do more things for the betterment of my health. Hopefully this leads to the scale's number dropping but I don't want that to be my focus.

This is going to me my FIRST NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS: Love Myself and Move More.
emoticonLove Myself - Not to say that I don't love myself, but I tend to get stuck in a rut. Hair goes into a ponytail, same clothes every day, no make up, etc, etc. I want to start looking good, and if I look good then I assume I will feel more energized and exude happier vibes to other people.
To start this off I am going to put make up on at least once a week. I think this is doable for me. It's a big step, but lets see how it goes.
I have to wear something similar to work every day (I am a ski instructor so it is usually black or white long johns and a black fleece top). But I am going to wear something classy and nice on my days off. No more running to the grocery store in my work out pants. This will take some time because I don't have nice things to wear, I maybe 2 nice tops, the rest is t-shirts and sweatshirts. This means I will have to save some money and hit up the consignment stores for something that makes me look great.
emoticonMove More - I don't move as much as I should. I live within walking distance to my bus stop, my grocery store and so many other places, but I drive everywhere. The reason I moved to my current house was because of it's central location, I am not using it to my advantage. I will walk to the bus stop more. I currently don't do it because it is dark when I go to work and it is dark when I get home from work. The solution is to put a headlamp in my backpack. How easy is that? Now the other issue is to wake up 15 min early to walk there:)

So how does this look for my first resolution ever. Does it sound feasible? Any suggestions?
