2005, the year in which I made a resolution to keep up all my resolutions! (Venkatesh a.k.a Koratagere, I hope you are reading this.) Approaching 2006, itâ€™s now time to look back in time. So, what exactly were these resolutions and how have I fared in keeping them?
Thereâ€™s no better way to make a person smile (and, in turn, remember you) than wishing him/her on his/her birthday, when they least expected you to do so. I have never wished so many people a happy birthday (and itâ€™s certainly from my heart) than I have this year.
Thank you Birthday Alarm, for your constant reminders. And, if you are reading this and you havenâ€™t been wished by me on your birthday, give me a piece of your mind.
Weight loss and fitness
I weighed 82 kilos at the start of the year. Now, the scaleâ€™s pointing at 76. Thatâ€™s 6 kilos in 12 months or 1/2 a kilo a month. Pathetic! At least, I am in the right direction. Hope to take this several notches higher through the Fitness One regime. My fitness levels have certainly gone up, as I found out in the â€œRun Bangaloreâ€ event.
Make new friends
You, my dear reader, stand testimonial to this resolution. Do I need to elaborate more?
|April 2005||:||Trip to Ooty and Yercaud with Vinayak|
|May 2005||:||Trip to Bandipur and Ooty with Avinash|
|May 2005||:||Trip to Tala Cauvery with Avinash, Shruthi, and Sandeep|
|November 2005||:||Trip to Kodaikanal|
|December 2005||:||Trip to Mumbai|
|December 2005||:||Trek from Kodaikanal to Munnar|
Certainly a lot. But, not enough!
Add to this list, a few personal ones, some of which I cannot yet write about. I hope to address this in the coming days.
I would like to give myself a 7 on a scale of 10. 2005 sure turned out to be one crazy year.
How about you? Did you keep up your resolutions?
