Well, it’s just about been a year since I started Run, Nikki, Run.
Read my first post here, if you wish.
If you read it, you’ll read how far I’ve not come.
But when you fall (even if repeatedly), you must pick yourself up and try again.
And even yet again.
So here I am making my annual resolutions list for Lord knows how many years in a row.
Fingers crossed I stick with them, as I truly, desperately intend to.
– Continue exercising, doing at least something daily, be it a 15-minute walk, hopping on the Air Climber, yoga or even going for a quick jaunt around my office on my long day … just move. More.
– Eat at least once piece of fresh fruit a day.
– Eat more vegetables.
– Try to go vegetarian as often as I can.
I’m a terribly nervous cook, especially when chicken is involved, and I really despise touching raw meats. I do already love a lot of vegetarian fare (and make a killer tofu stir fry), so with the help of a veg/near-vegan coworker, I’m going to try to be veg more often, at least four days a week.
Naturally, I’ll be blogging my exploits/successes with this one, but know in advance that there is nothing I love more than a big, juicy medium-rare steak or burger. My dad is a hunter; meat-eating is in my blood. This I think will be tougher than even the exercise ones.
– Go back to Planet Fitness.
Which I still pay for. At least I’ve just pissed away $10 a month, but since I haven’t been there since like August (?), that’s an estimated $40. A tank of gas. A fridge bin full of leafy greens. All of these make my inner miser unhappy. So I vow to try to hit the gym after work at least two days a week after the New Year. It’s so stupidly close to work that I have no excuse. So I won’t even try to explain what the hell happened.
– Cook more, and at least one recipe from each issue of Bon Appetit.
Hopefully, future ones will go much smoother than my first BA recipe …
– Blog more.
Fin … I don’t know about you, but these sound pretty darn doable.
What do you plan to resolve in 2012?
