Hey! Hope you and yours are having a wonderful new year…
As I embark upon this new year, I am extremely grateful for so many things. I wrote about this at length previously so I won’t go into it as much this go round, just know that I understand all the blessings God has given me this year, including an awesome new boyfriend and wonderful grades in school, as well as a pretty good start to the year at work and stability with my Father’s health. My own health is something that I intend to work on this year.
You would think that working out for an hour each day would reap some benefits. Well, my eating habits leave something to be desired. I try to cook most of the week but mostly what I cook is red meat and sweets, with a few veggies here and there. The late nite snacking is what kills me. I’m an emotional eater. I eat when I’m: happy, sad, depressed, sick, tired, you name it! So yeah, I’m going to try to put more of a focus on my diet this year. (Since apparently my metabolism is gone – gone – gone.) After talking with my bf Brian, I know that I can do some meal replacements and just make all around healthier choices. I’ve already cut out my *gasp!* daily Starbucks habit, and have cut out some snacks here and there, replacing it with drinking water instead. So, I’ve made some good choices, but I’ve got a ways to go! I’m excited to get started, and I’m starting that next week.
As far as what the future holds, I’m super excited to continue with school, my awesome relationship with Brian, and doing my best at work to help as many as possible with my project, now in it’s 4th year. More goals for the year include: new travels to faraway places, more hiking and outdoorsy stuff, bigger focus on my photography, as well as working on my people skills. Over the years, I’ve turned into a shell of who I used to be. Not in all ways, just some. For instance, I’m still pretty salty when it comes to trusting new people and letting new friends into my life. It’s a constant struggle in my life, and this year, I want to try to be a little more accepting, trusting, and patient with people in my life. I don’t believe in new year resolutions, per se, but I do believe in bettering ones’ self when possible.
Ok. It’s Friday again. How did that happen? I don’t care. I’m just happy to be here and looking forward to the double date B and I have planned with his Mom and her wife this weekend. Ya’ll have an amazing weekend and a great new year 😀
