Hi! I guess I made New Year's Commitments, I think that when I make Resolutions they are bound to fall apart or fail. But this year I made some commitments.
1. Get more healthy
2. Get out and be more Social
3. Become more active
I have been doing fairly well- the first thing is that I had a gym membership that last year I probably used once a month give or take. This year I have been in the gym at least three times a week. I am running more frequently and I have been making better strides to get my eating under control. Now I have sort of hit a weight loss plateau, because I am not gaining weight, but I am not really losing weight either so I am trying to figure that out.
DC is a great place to live, but I first came here for school and spending that time on campus, means that I lose out in what DC has to offer. So this is the first year that I have been in this city without school as my main reason for being here and thus far I have been out for Inauguration events, attended a few events at the Kennedy Center and just attended my first Gala. For the start of 2013, this isn't that bad.
Becoming more active- well I run all the time, but I am currently training for a half marathon and due to this I think I have become more strategic in my running. I am running towards a goal and that has motivated me. So much so that I have now registered for my 3 race this year... One half in March, one 5K in May and one in September!
So I would say that I am off to a pretty good start to continue to keep to my commitments, so much so that it feels like my lifestyle more than anything else. Hope you are all sticking to your commitments!
