Good Morning, Kittens!
Four days into the New Year, I'm almost ready to put my New Year's Resolution into ACTION! Before the holidays began, SCGB and I were talking about New Year's Resolutions. He had heard somewhere that, rather than making a long list of resolutions, it's best to only make one. I have several things I want to accomplish this year, but most of them are thematically related. So, I have declared 2011 to be the Year of Health!
I want to eat better. Exercise more. And get some (rather pressing) health issues (which I have been ignoring ... do you know how hard it is to find a gay/gay-friendly doctor who (1) accepts my insurance and (2) I like?) taken care of.
I want to eat healthier foods (like this tangerine I'm eating for breakfast). And, I want to stop eating lunch out so frequently (it's expensive and not always the healthiest option). The problem with not eating lunch out is that my building is a soul-crushing monstrosity with nothing to do nearby. Sometimes, one has to escape for a minute or two (or 120). If I don't go out for lunch, there is usually no other place to go to. No cute little coffee shops. No tiny boutiques. *sigh* I am thinking I will bring my lunch and then simply tagalong with my co-workers. Hopefully that will work.
I am also going to joni the gym. And *ugh* I hate the gym. BUT, I need to exercise and it's too cold to do it outside. There is a Washington Sports Club near my apartment, so I will probably join that in the coming week or so. They are currently offering a reduced sign-up fee and January free. Combine that with some benefits my company offers and I won't have to pay for the membership until Summer. Yay!
So, there you have it. My Year of Health. Let's see how long it lasts ...
