New Year… New Me…

        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.

  1. You can’t make changes unless you have the motivation. If you keep making excuses, then it sounds like maybe you’re not ready for that change yet. Losing weight and getting healthy are major lifestyle changes, and should be approached gradually instead of all at once. Start by cutting soda/soft drinks/some snack foods out of your diet. If you do drink soda, you’d be surprised at how much of a difference just cutting that out makes. Drink plenty of water. Work a little bit more exercise into your daily routine, even if it’s just taking a walk around the block or doing a set of sit-ups in the morning. Anyway, I’m going to stop spewing out my unwarranted advice, haha. Also, don’t think of it as a “new year’s resolution”, because those rarely stick. Any time of the year is a good time to get motivated. Good luck!
