My New Year’s Resolution 2016

Day 1


It’s that time of year again. You know, the beginning. The first of January. The day of many New Year’s resolutions. I wish I could be unique and less susceptible to all the advertising telling me that everyone else is resolving to be better and that I should be doing something too! But I thought to myself, why not? Why not resolve to make myself better? Why not try, try, try again? This blog can be a great place to talk about my journey, vent and can provide me with accountability.

I saw this post on MyFitnessPal, and thought to myself, why yes, I would like to lose weight next month! Thanks, MFP! You know, even considering my review on their premium service, sometimes their advice is pretty good! Although, this advice is part of their freemium platform, so I have yet to find any value, personally, from their premium platform.

Two years ago, I made a resolution to pay better attention to my skin care regime. I have been keeping it and even started getting Skin Medica Vitalize Peels! I just had my second one, and I am writing a review post on them, which I will post once I complete the series sometime in March. Overall, my skin is MUCH better than it was when I first moved South and I’m no longer experiencing the types of issues I had been.

This year, I’d like to resolve to lose the weight I gained after I got married. My specific goal will be to lose 15 pounds. I will reassess how I feel then- IF I get there. I really can’t expect any miracles. Losing weight is very hard work- but I’m going to give it a shot! I would also really like to get in the habit of drinking more water. Does anyone else just not like the taste?

That’s all for this first post, I’ll keep records and let you know how my progress is going a week from now.

Look at this fun meme I made:

Are YOU resolving to get in shape this year? I would really love to follow other bloggers who are trying to better their health. Do you follow someone who is? Can you leave a link to their blog below? I look forward to hearing from all of you about what your resolutions are- if you have any. 🙂 

Thanks, as always, for being here!

  1. I hope you can achieve all your goals this year. I never actually make resolutions, not because I think it’s not worth it but more because after my years of personnal struggles, making resolutions is not to high on my bucket list of life. But if I were to think about what I would love this year
    1. On a purely esthetic level, to loose 5 to 10 pounds and
    2. After years of personnal growth, schooling and struggles, to find how to translate my passions into a job where I am my own boss and provide help to people that need it.

    Hope all of your dreams in 2016 come true!


    1. Omg, girl! Number 2 speaks to me. I have been in school for quite some time and I would LOVE to find out how to translate my passion for language and writing into a meaningful work situation. I don’t know if I’d want to be my own boss, as I’m one of those “risk-adverse” types, but definitely feeling you on finding something I can be passionate about.

      I hope I can achieve my goals this year too- Here’s hoping. 😉 Thanks for sharing!
