My Blog__ My Resolutions

January 11, 2011 | By

My resolutions were on my To Do List--I'd get to them eventually. Anyways I think the rule is you can make your New Years resolutions up until the 15th of January. And even if this isn't the rule, let's just roll with it.

1. Eat Less Chemicals

I've sworn off aspartame, even if it means drinking a sugary real Coca-Cola every once in a while instead of that no calorie can. I'm convinced aspartame will give you cancer and want nothing of the sort. I'm applying this theory to pretty much any ingredient on food labels I can't pronounce.

2. Eat More Local and Organic Food

Documentaries like The Corporation and Food Inc., have pretty much insured I will never eat meat or anything with corn in it without feeling a little guilty. I've already stopped eating McDonald's thanks to this, but the Green Market in Union Square and Whole Foods are about to start seeing a lot more of me.

3. Make Time for Yoga

Based on the price of my new membership, I really have no choice but to start going. Not that I don't love every time I'm there--nothing slows my ever racing mind down like a good Vinyasa class--it's just finding the time. So instead of finding it, I'll make it.

4. Slimming Down Regularly, My Closet That Is

I recently moved into an apartment with no closets. In some ways I've grown to really enjoy the feeling of purging clothes. Staying on top of slimming down my closet is not only a necessity in regards to space, but will also ensure I stop having those days where I realize half way through, I hate the shirt I'm wearing.

5. More Friend Face Time

"Her body nice, face dime. Give you that iPhone 4, FaceTime."  I can't not have that Fabulous lyric from You Be Killin' Em play through my head every time I think about FaceTime. But I didn't mean more FaceTime, more real face to face time. Sometimes after a long day, all you want to do is sit in front of the TV and watch re-runs of Law and Order SVU. But, unfortunately, Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler are not my real friends. Unfortunately. So warning to my real friends: we're going to hang more. And the out of town ones, we'll just have to have more visits.

Here's to a big awesome year! L'Chaim
