As promised, here are my New Year’s resolutions!
1. Blog more- I started this blog as a place to log my walks and the pictures I took whilst ambling about. I’ve since made it into my all-purpose blog since WordPress is simply a nicer place to blog than Livejournal. But don’t worry, once the sidewalks are navigable again (ie. I won’t die out on a walk,) you will see more walks!

2. Give up pop- I thought about doing this for Lent, but I figured it is a good a time as ever to give up pop. I have been watching “The Doctors” with my mom in the morning, and they referred to sodas a “liquid cigarettes.” Upon further investigation, pop just isn’t good for you (and diet pop is worse.) On top of adding calories and unneeded sugar into your body, the phosphorus in it leeches calcium from your bones. So, toodle-loo pop for 2011. And an ad-of-insanity for emphasis:

3. Get to a healthier weight- Big shocker, eh? I think this is one of the biggest resolutions made every year. A while ago I gave up self-deprecating talk. Too many people buy into the idea that beauty comes in one size (or, size one?) To be frank, this is bullshit and societal brainwashing. However, it is true that being at a certain body weight for your height is just a more healthy way to live. So in in the spirit of 2011, I want to lose 20+11 pounds (31 for my fellow English majors.)
I might try this diet… http://www.livestrong.com/article/200729-the-hipster-diet/ (But if I were really a hipster, would I want to be fat? Being skinny is so mainstream…)
Happy New Year everyone! Anyone else have some resolutions?
