I don't generally believe in New Year's resolutions, but starting off the year did remind me that there were quite a few todos on my list that I haven't done anything with recently. So I went ahead and decided to kick myself in the ass on a few of them. See below.
1. Drink less soda and juices, drink lighter stuff (like water and tea)
Doing pretty good. I'd say I've cut back on soda by about 60% or so…substituting for water and tea. Damn, soda really does taste pretty good when you haven't had it for a while. After a while, I get a craving for the fizzy kick that only soda can give you.
2. Exercise regularly
Aside from all the fake drumming I do (which, while not completely intense, is not an insignificant amount of exercise either), I need to do more "regular" exercise. I'm only about 30% on this right now. I've scheduled time from 11-12PM to do push-ups and sit-ups while watching TV, but I always seem to get caught in the middle of doing something else. I think what I need to do here is block out time next to other things I do … mainly so that I'm not tempted to be in the middle of something when it comes time to exercise.
3. Blog more.
I've been shooting for weekly. Missed a week so far, but otherwise on track. I actually find I have a plethora of things to write about, and it's hard to restrict myself to just Sundays because sometimes when you're thinking about something, you just want to get it out there. But, on the other hand, I don't want it to take too much time either. I need to find a balance.
4. Change my hair style.
I've had a rather short buzzcut since the middle of college, solely because it was easier for me to maintain rather than any other number of reasons. I've finally decided to change this up. I'm letting it grow out right now. In general, it will still be a short cut, but may require gel/hair drying/combing in the morning. We'll see how this goes. I'm due for a trim and a check up next week.
