I doubt I'll be dressing up in anything so fancy for our New Year's Eve plans. We are going over to a friend's house with a group of us, and because our plans skip anything out and about, I imagine that I'll be a little more casual. I'll share outfit pictures if I remember. What are your New Year's plans? Have you thought about what to wear?
And speaking of New Year's Eve, I thought I'd share too one of the things I'm planning on doing in the new year. While I know many people are opposed to resolutions or don't see the new year as a reason to start something, I love that feeling of freshness and new. One of the things I've heard a lot about and spoken with a few blog friends about is Commitment Day.
Have you heard of it?
There are 5ks around the country that people are participating in, but as the closest 5k to me is an hour and a half away, I'll be participating in the other part. The other part relates to making a commitment to living a healthier life. Instead of making resolutions, commitment day encourages people to make a commitment to change something or several things about the way they're living. I'm going to put more thought into what my commitments are going to be before the new year begins, but I think this is the perfect opportunity to commit to a few lifestyle changes that I've been trying to start throughout the end of this year. Again, I know some will disagree that I should just start now, but having a solid date and a clear start are so clean and fresh for me.
I would encourage you to make a commitment too. It doesn't cost anything, and you don't have to do a 5k to participate. It's just about helping America become more healthy overall. There's a neat slideshow on the website that shows why they're doing this, and it helped convince me to join myself.
And as an added incentive to myself, I did end up keeping almost all of my 2012 resolutions throughout the year, so I think that bodes well to the fresh start I'm looking forward to in 2013.
Do you make resolutions?
Would you make a commitment/commitments?
What area of your life do you want to make a change either now or in the new year?
