Well… this was supposed to be the year for me. Here I sit on January 22nd no better of than I was December 31st and i’m a bit upset about that. I had a bit of a revelation in the shower the other evening about all of this and i’m upset with myself for not making the changes that I promised myself I would be making. The big change that has meant the most to me this year is losing weight and getting into shape. I feel that I am continuously making excuses as to why I don’t want to eat healthy and why I don’t want to work out. I have to realize that this is hurting nobody but myself.
I have all the tools that are required of me to reach my goals as well as the support system in place to push me to my end goal as well. I really just have to remain motivated and keep up with my goals. I didn’t gain my weight and get out of shape overnight so I have to consider that I am also not going to lose the weight overnight (although that would be amazing).
In all other aspects this is turning out to be a great year so far. My job (again.. so far) is going well. I am on the fast track to a promotion if I keep my head in the game and stay focused. There are a few people that seem like all they want to do is bring me down and hold me back from these goals. I just have to remind myself that they are essentially nothing to me.
I have really been enjoying getting to know my face and using cosmetics. The price I have been paying for a lot of these products is getting to be a little bit to much but in the end I think thats its worth the success I have been having and actually look forward to new products and new techniques that I can learn to better myself (and my face of course).
I just received the Sigma brush sight (without the matching brush roll) and I can’t wait to try everything out! They are supposed to be comparable to the quality of MAC brushes but at a much lower price. I love MAC but the price for the average brush is a bit to much. Brushes are one thing that I truly believe are worth the money its just that right now I really don’t have the money to be spending. I have a few brushes from MAC and just hope to build my collection over the years!
So my birthday present from Brian (and a bit from myself) is the Barnes & Noble NOOK Color. I am still a bit hesitant about the product. I mean, to be honest, I had to pay $150 (and Brian payed $150) for the machine. Now… I have to buy the books that I want to read on it.
