Two out of four isn't bad, right?
Remember back in January when I made four resolutions for 2009?
Yeah me neither.
(Hint for lazy ones-Look at #2)
Then over summer they came back to me-
-Become a size 8
-Get involved in more volunteer work
-Start a second blog on a totally different topic
-Acquire and keep three house plants alive in the new apartment
Well I'm pleased as a nectarine (coz I'm not crazy about peaches) to announce that by sheer coincidence I was able to cross out two of them at once!
Yep, I started volunteering for METRAC (The Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children) and guess what I'm helping them with? Starting up and contributing to their Blog!
Check it out here!
Do give it as much love as you've given this space.
It is not your average organizational blog on sad feminist issues. The hope is to share 'stories and opinion on current issues, inform about METRAC’s innovative work and initiatives in Toronto and across Canada, and ultimately inspire involvement and action to make our world safer for women, youth, and children, safer for everyone.'
Don't forget to leave comments there and spread the word :)
On with mission #1 to become size 8, I have joined a boot camp(thanks to Isheeta for inspiration) for a month.
Time- Yesterday evening
Location: At a school compound in pouring rain and 8degrees Celsius!
Verdict: I was wheezing after one lap around the school and crying for my arms that were pathetically trying to do pushups. Not a pretty sight. Thank god for the lack of mirrors.
Still it was kinda fun doing it outdoors among a group of encouraging women, even the size 2 ones who were complaining about getting on the weight machine! Bitches.
Two out of four and it only took me 10 months!
PS: Sadly, mission #4 has been on hold since summer when I realized I don't like touching dirt. Even with gloves.
