I detest New Year’s resolutions so, I thought that instead of writing about resolutions I wanted to write about quests to pursue in this bright new year.
Quest – noun a search or exploration.
Doesn’t that sound more fun? This whole “new year new me” is a bunch of nonsense. I love how my body looks and feels and I don’t want to change that for anyone else and the standards that society upholds. Here are the quests that I want to participate in 2017:
Buy More Cruelty Free Makeup.
As a consumer, I started to be more attentive to what I’m purchasing. I want to invest in beauty products that are ethical. I don’t want to buy a product that may have hurt an animal during the production. At least with drinking milk or eating eggs, my body has a benefit from those nutrients. Makeup lifts my self esteem some days, but it’s not worth it to buy a product that may have hurt animals before arriving on the shelf. I’m currently looking at Kat Von D mascara as a possible replacement for my other brand.
More HIIT Workouts
HIIT aka. High Intensity Interval Training. I just did a HIIT workout yesterday and my muscles are tender. HIIT is something I don’t do often, but I’m enjoying the higher energy and feeling sweaty after I complete my workout. I want my body to adapt and get stronger and I think HIIT can do that for me.
Drink more Tea
I’m enjoying a sweet tangerine tea along with my sleepy time Vanilla tea for when I get a tad sleepy while reading my book at night. Tea is my go to at night because it’s not sugary like hot chocolate is, but it’s still warm and flavorful.
Finally: Read more comics, read more books, game when I can and be thankful for the moments I’m on this planet.
