It’s the end of January and finally time for me to chime in about my 2019 goals. First of all, I will say that I haven’t been to the gym yet because it will take until the middle of February before all of those weight loss/ gym attending resolutions have trickled down to the small 1% of people who actually keep those resolutions. Until then, it is quite difficult to find an open treadmill or elliptical machine.
I have decided to take an additive approach to my new year resolution. This is to say, that I won’t focus so much on eliminating the bad as much as I will focus on including the good. I believe this way the bad will eventually fade into the background. After all, you cannot serve two masters right? Let me give an example. I don’t plan on just cutting back on television watching, instead I plan to bike ride at least twice per week. It stands to reason that If I am bike riding I cannot be watching television. See how that works.
On the fashion front, my goal is to do more styling. I spent last year completing stylist courses and was very gung ho about this. I saw others from the course report their success. I wasn’t quite able to jump in with both feet like they did. So this year, I will add styling to my writing and photography.
One personal goal (tangentially related to fashion) is to add a nightly skin regimen. It has been said that Black doesn’t crack. It may not fully crack, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve certainly seen some chinks in the armor. Even though dermatologist note that the appearance of wrinkles is partially genetic, it is also a result of sun damage, poor eating habits, and not enough water. A nightly regimen will be beneficial as well as increasing my intake of vitamin C. Well, that’s it in a nutshell – 2019, I’m ready for you!
