Darkest before the Dawn

Happy New Year everyone!

I love this time of the year… everyone has so much new-found motivation to improve themselves…

I don’t care for people that are Anti-Resolutions … like, I understand that most people are just setting themselves up for failure… but I really like that people are taking the time to reflect on their life and what they’d like to do better…. Most people don’t make goals all year long… for many I am sure that this is their one time a year when they really make goals…

I hate that the gym is going to be packed for the next month or so… it really peeves me… but that’s okay… it won’t last for long… and hopefully some of those people will stick with it.

I was really excited to start a new ‘healthy eating’ plan… and really attack my weight… btw I have gained like 15lbs from my low weight so I need to get my butt in gear… I really just want to cry… a lot… but I won’t… I am going to go running! As for ‘attacking’ my eating… it is going to have to wait until after our move… my life is a mess right now, boxes of crap everywhere… it is very annoying! But I did manage to get 4 boxes of Special K yesterday at Rite Aid… oh and they were free because I am so awesome like that… (weight loss is only one of my hobbys… I am a secret coupon QUEEN… shhhh!)

I am hoping to lose a lot this week… I think with the Special K cereal ‘diet’ and finally getting back to running, I will have made a huge change compared to the last few weeks of cookies, ramen noodles, granola bars like they’re candy, pizza, eating out, drinking calories! And NO exercise… Hopefully getting back on track will be enough for my body to drop some pounds… and then over the next few weeks I will turn up the heat!

Goals for the year:

1. Single Digit Pant Size… like a 9 would be nice… I have never been that small… but I am wearing a 14 right now (yes with a little muffin) … I think I will have to lose about 30lbs before that happens… but right now I am going to focus on the first 5!

2. Donate more… I have awesome coupon skills… I plan on giving some of my freebies to our church…. Right now we don’t give money to the church and I feel a little bad about it… not a ton, because I shouldn’t have to pay to go to church… but still, everyone can give something! So this is what we will be giving…. My coupon talents….

3. Turn our New House into our Home… We should be closing within a week… I am excited and overwhelmed by the whole thing… bills and such aside there are a lot of things I want to do so we can make it ours… I want to start a crafting/décor blog to document our progress…

4. Save for our wedding…. This one is mostly going to be on my fiancé to do… we need to open a joint account and get started! FI gets a $6 raise in a few weeks… so that’s like an extra $200 after taxes per week… so we were thinking that $100/wk would be over $5000 by the end of the year! That plus my bonus should put us at ~$10,000 for the wedding… hopefully that is more than enough for the simple ‘family reunion’ wedding we are planning to have…

Anyways... this week's Mamavation sponsor is @GameStop ... Fiance and I love to get great deals at there stores... wonder what they're giving away!

Good luck this week everyone!
