I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions. I don’t drink in excess, I don’t smoke, I’m not overweight, I’m already strengthening my foreign language skills and keeping in touch with people. But there are small improvements that can be made every day, so that’s what I’ll do instead: no big resolution for huge change, just little adjustments to make me healthier and (hopefully) sexier.
Ballerina Friend has amazing posture. the above is me at age five, in my purple leotard and tutu. LOVED IT.
Sit the fuck up
When I was training, I was also in a choir and slept on a firmer bed. My posture was fantastic. It has since gotten… not so good, which is uncomfortable, lazy, unattractive, and doesn’t give the impression of confidence I’d like to trick people into thinking I have.
Stretch your shit out
I used to be more flexible, and it was awesome. Not being able to touch my toes is just embarrassing. So I’m going to stretch a little every day and see what happens. Couldn’t hurt, right?
Stop eating so goddamn much
I need to stop eating when I’m full. I don’t even realize when I’m going it; I’m so used to “clearing my plate” that it doesn’t even occur to me that I should just stop eating when the hunger goes away. I would probably be healthier, and I would have more leftovers to snack on later when I actually am hungry.
And also I will apply to graduate school. The end.
