New Year for growth!

This new year is going to be a good one. Wanna know the main reason why???


Be excited with me! Do a happy dance!
I have been waiting and waiting. I was starting to think that school was just a perpetual thing that just keeps going on and on until forever. But the end is in sight! It is within my reach! Only a few more months! I'm pumped!

I have lots of pictures from days of old that I haven't posted, and they probably won't get posted because it will be one of those weird catch up blogs about things that I hardly remember. So I'm not going to worry about it. But some were kinda funny.

So I thought I'd talk about my goals for the year. My mom and I decided to do some weight losing with each other. Ten pounds by the end of February. I know I can do it -- people have lost more faster than that. But I've never actively tried to lose weight, so this is a whole new concept for me. Also, my main goal for the year is to get healthier. So here they are specifically...

1. Drink more water.
2. Exercise at least 3 times per week.
3. Eat more apples. [I'm still trying to decide if I should set a number, because eating just three would be an improvement from last year...]

I just added that last one to get me excited and motivate me for graduation. HOLLER!!!

So there they are. They are simple and not complex, which is exactly what I need. If it gets too complex I give up because it's not easy. So I'm starting off easy. And I must say, I have exercised once already...AND it was EARLY this morning. THAT is a big deal. And I have already eaten one apple this year. Two more and I will have beaten last year's record! Haha. But I'm pulling for more like a few a week.

Anyway, I'm going for the whole, "I put this out there for everyone to see and I'll be responsible to others to prove I am doing it" idea.

So watch out Ogden, Utah! Here I come...eatin' up all your apples!


  1. Good luck with your goals! I'm so excited for you to graduate! And just so you know, since you haven't had many, there is a big difference between good apples and bad ones: I LOVE apples when they are very crisp, but gag on even slightly-mushy apples. So I can totally understand why someone might hate apples if they haven't had a good one. Only give good apples the time of day!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for dropping in! :)
