Betterment

I’m not huge into new years resolutions, but at the moment I do have some things I’m trying to do to change myself for the better, and it does happen to be January. First and foremost is my attempt to get into some semblance of shape. I got an all classes pass to the IM center group classes which lets me into as many group classes as I feel like all semester. So far I’ve done yoga and pilates, both of which were more intense that I expected; who thinks they’re going to be sore after doing yoga?  It all feels like a very feminine approach to fitness. I’d never claim to have been a very athletic individual, but when I play Ultimate thats the feeling I’d come away with a sense of athleticism. With the group classes I don’t get that same feeling, but they fit much better with my schedule and lifestyle at the moment, not to say anything to the fact that there is no way that I am in shape enough to keep up with frisbee team. I do like the classes a lot better than running or working out otherwise on my own. There’s something to the sense of group unity that motivates you to preform at your best and continue to come back.

I’m also attempting to be more aware of the time I am spending. I feel like I spend so much time doing things because it is the path of least resistance rather than an activity that I will get something out of. Surfing the internet is an easy default for me, but it isn’t really fun. In order to combat this, I’m trying to make myself busier and give myself alternative hobbies. I haven’t knit in forever, but I just started a new project and I’m pretty excited about it. This gives me something to do while I watch TV shows or movies so even when I’m having fun and relaxing, I can have the self-satisfaction of having something to show for it.
