The word for 2010.

I keep seeing "2010 sucked for me", I don't agree. We had a really good 2010. We accomplished a lot, we accumulated a lot. We both had jobs all year long. All things considered it was prodigious.
I say this because we accumulated a lot of stuff this year... a lot. A TV, Computer, PS3, Dining room set, Camera, Grill, fire pit, dog... it was an extraoridnary in size year. But, I lost weight to make up for it???
And, yet it was wonderful. A house, a vacation, Kyle went back to school, Aidan lost his first tooth, lots of good stuff. Wonderful year.
I would like 2011 to be Diligent. I want to get a lot accomplished with school and writing. I want to reach weight loss goals and goals in general. Goals are good things. I'm actually going to sit down and make a list of goals that I want to accomplish this year. Maybe even in my snazzy leather journal that my cousin got me for Christmas. It's awesome.. I have been searching for reasons to use it!! I can keep track of how I do with my goals? Maybe, I don't know. I will find it's purpose though!
So, starting on January first I am taking my new camera and I am going to be doing a 365 Project. I'm excited. I think it will be an awesome project and something to really focus on. I know I have a lot going on with school and my diet, and being a wife/mom/needy dog owner. But, I feel that it could be soemthing fun and something to help me take my mind off of the unfun stuff. Like school. Plus, any reason to use my camera, right?!?!?!?!
Also, I will be hitting the diet super hard again. SUPER hard... we won't discuss my HORRIBLE eating habits since Thanksgiving, but I have put soem weight back on. Not too much, but enough for me to feel yucky about it. So, I'm wanting to join a gym and maybe do some fun classes? I don't know what yet exactly, but something. I know, gotta keep my plate full at all times. I get bored and watch entirely too much tv if I don't have lots going on and keeping me busy.
Well, I must go and clean my house for our gathering tonight. Everyone have a safe and happy New Year!


December.. WOW!

So, 2010 is coming to a close. My first year as a married adult, the first year of living in a house, the first year I have actually known what I TRUELY wanted to do and went for it, and the year I lost 25lbs & can fit into a size 16 again. And, the  year of our first real family vacation.

What a year it has been!

I have so much I want to try to do in 2011. I'm going to attempt taking 3 classes, we want to go to Minnesota for Aidan's spring break. A new state and my first airplane ride!

I started doing the HCG thing for about a week right before Thanksgiving and have decided to wait until the new year. I'm back to WW and hopefully that will help keep the Christmas weight at bay. We went hiking this morning and it felt so good. I haven't done that in a long time. We took Monster with us and he had a blast. Kyle and I talked about it and have decided that we will hike every other week and go to church every other week. We just need to find a church in our area that we are both comfortable going too. We will see how that goes.

I'm going to create a goals list for 2011 I think. Just some things that I feel are reachable and will be worth working towards. I don't know what exactly it will include yet, but I have about 24 days to work it out.:-)

We are going to have a New Year's party again this year, so I am pretty excited about that. I love having partys!!

I guess that's really it. I have an essay and  a final to get done!
Have a great week!
