As 2014 draws to a close and 2015 looms around the corner, we here at Living Fort Wayne are vowing to change some things in our lives for the coming year. Make sure you keep us honest, these are resolutions we want to keep! Feel free to head over to our Facebook and/or Twitter pages or comment below to share your resolutions with us, we’d love to hear from you!
Leslie Snare: I’m going totally cliché and hopping on the juice trend…I already bought my first juicer for at home purposes, but now I am going to vow to hit up the juiciest spots in town on mornings when I’m running late to get my daily dose of fruits and veggies:
Sarah Pine: As a new year rolls around, it’s the New Year’s Resolution that you can expect from about 80% of the people you know. My New Year’s Resolution for 2015 is to jump back on the workout train! I’ve been on that train before but kind of fell off. This time around I’m taking my boyfriend along with me so I can have someone that will motivate me a little bit and actually make sure that I go. There is a Planet Fitness conveniently located by me on the Southwest side of town that I love, so come January I will start my membership back up with them for just $10 a month. Wish me luck!
Cassey Hurtado: Tis the season for New Year’s resolutions, my own included. In 2015, I resolve to swap out some of my shopping habits for local buys instead. I’ve already found an awesome place to get my coffee. I’ll be trading in my Folgers coffee for Our Daily Brew’s tasty blends. And when eating out, I’ll skip the usual Chipotle or Panera and opt for a local place, like CS3 (Calhoun Street Soups, Salads and Spirits), the Dash-In or Bravas.
Emily Farmer: I’ve never been so happy to see a new year! Now that I’ve finished my college degrees, I find that I have a little more time each day. In 2015, I plan to focus on family. Andy, the kids and I can take more trips to Fort Wayne’s amazing parks and playgrounds like Kreager, Northside, and Bass to name a few. I also want to spend more time with the kids at the Allen County Public Library and share my love of words with them. Here’s to a new year full of smiles and new memories to be made!
Ryan Krueckeberg: I’m a pretty active person when it comes to work, community involvement, and my social life. This leads very little time for physical activity like the gym. I’ve tried resolutions around going to the gym and I know enough by now that they don’t work for me. Then I found this: http://fortwaynesocial.com/. Non-competitive co-ed sports followed by happy hours at a local bar? I’m in! My resolution is to get active with Fort Wayne Sport and Social Club.
Lynn Altevogt: I am usually opposed to New Years Resolutions; it’s so much pressure that they usually don’t end up sticking (maybe I’m just speaking for myself). But this year, I have a resolution that I have wanted to do for a long time and I think once it gets started, I will have no trouble keeping it. My resolution is to “Start Something Big.” This is the motto of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana and this year I hope to get a little sis of my own! I will be tracking my journey in a new series, so make sure to check back in a few weeks to see my progress.
