With 2012 right around the corner, I've started thinking about some New Year's Resolutions. I know that resolutions are often broken, but I figured I should have something at least to strive for in the new year. Here are the things topping out my list:
- Lose weight. 30 pounds to be exact. Yes, yes...I know the whole weight thing goes without saying for new year's resolutions, but I'm serious this time. I really need to start giving a damn (excuse my language :). For some reason I'm in some type of "I don't care mode" that I haven't figured out how to disarm. Hopefully, training for the DC Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon in March will be the kick in the butt that I need to get started.
- Wear high heels once a week. That sounds like a weird resolution but I have a whole closet of heels that I don't wear (see above "I don't care mode" for the rationale). I drive to work (as opposed to riding the metro) and my job doesn't require me to be on my feet. I have an awesome collection of heels that I don't wear out of sheer laziness, so I figured it would be a good time to blow the dust off of them and show them off!
- Style my hair once a week. If you know me, you know that I've worn my hair long for as long as I can remember and I really don't do anything to it. Bor-ring. I spend so much money highlighting, coloring, and cutting it, the least I can do is make it look its best. My styling tools (hair curler, rollers, and flat iron) will probably have to come out of hiding as well.
- Learn how to braid. Not simple braids but, you know, the more complicated ones (e.g.: french, fishtail, inverted, etc.). Kind of related to resolution #3, but a bit more specific. I honestly have no excuse since there are so my instructional videos on YouTube that can show you how, like this one:
What about you? Have you started thinking about your New Years resolutions yet? Do you make a resolution (or two) or since most resolutions are broken do you forgo the idea?
