>”Resolutions,” anyone?

>I’m not really big into New Year’s resolutions, but I do have a few things I would like to try to do in 2010:

-stick to my vegetarian diet.
-develop (and stick to) a good exercise/gym plan.
-shop at more black-owned/operated businesses.
-develop a consistent blogging schedule.
-expand my intellectual self–meaning expanding my knowledge about various subjects.

Well, those are a few I can think of. I don’t really like to call them resolutions, but I can’t think of another word to replace that one:-)

I decided to go vegetarian in Feb. 2008. I was doing good for a while, but I have been slipping. If I’m going to do this, then I need to do it right, plain and simple.

My life has always been synonymous with a proper diet and exercise. I absolutely love hitting the gym and hitting the weights. Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty healthy, but I want to take it to the next level.

I never thought about shopping at black-owned/operated businesses until this year. It never occurred to me how important it is to support my fellow brothers and sisters in their efforts to become successful in the business field. It’ll be a challenge to find them and support them, but I’m up to the task.

Writing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. And I fell in love with blogging several years ago and I still love it to this day. I won’t set ridiculous standards (blogging everyday) for myself as my busy life will get in the way of those high standards. I will say I’ll blog at least three times a week and no more than once a day.

I want to expand my knowledge (and topics I blog about) to various subjects, including (but not limited to) atheism, agnosticism, The Mommy Myth, the role of women in the political system, the role of black women in the black political system, the indoctrination of black women by our “community” into accepting various ideals, etc. These are just some things that continue to plague my mind.

What are some things you are interested in “pursuing” for 2010? Why?
