Good start to 2011 :)

Saturday, January 01, 2011

Last night the boyfriend and I went out to dinner, went downtown for a little bit, then watched the fireworks. We got to have our midnight kiss so I was happy about that :)

Today was also a good day. It was a beautiful and sunny 50-something degrees today, so I was able to get outside with my mom and go for a walk. I meant to do some strength exercises but I forgot. And thennnn I went out to dinner (again, haha) with the boyfriend and his family. I was kind of nervous since I've never had more than a one minute conversation with his parents but it was fine. I had fun. So far it's been a good 2011.

Goodbye 2010, hello 2011

Friday, December 31, 2010

First of all, I can't believe that this year is over. It went by so unbelievably fast. All in all, it was a good year. I began the year being the biggest I've ever been at 158 pounds, and I'm ending the year being the smallest I've ever been at 118 pounds.


I've learned a lot about myself this year, and I realized that I'm a lot stronger than I thought I was, both physically and mentally. I'm more confident, I have a positive attitude and overall I feel great, and I'm going to start 2011 feeling great, which is something I've never been able to do.

I finally declared my major (studio art with a concentration in photography), and even though I still don't know what I want to do after college, declaring my major is still a step in the right direction.

This year I also met my boyfriend, the love of my life. He's wonderful and I couldn't be happier.

I'm definitely looking forward to 2011. My goals for this year areeee...
1. Maintaining my weight (and maybe losing a few more pounds)

2. Toning up so I look good in the bikini I bought last night as part of my motivation to keep the weight off

This is the bikini, btw. From Victoria's Secret. SO CUTE! And on super-clearance!


3. Run my first 5k (keep in mind that I am NOT a runner!)


Have a happy and safe new year everyone!

    Kristen,
Thanks so much for being one of my new Spark Friends. You have had an amazing year! You look like an entirely different person except you kept your cute face! lol! You are my inspiration for 2011. One of the most special moments in my life happened this year, getting engaged to my amazing, wonderful, love of my life! I'm even more excited about 2011, to giving myself the gift of good nutrition and good mental and physical health! I cant wait to feel good in a bikini for the first time in my life and I cant wait to be a beautiful and fit bride! I'm excited to take this journey with all of my spark friends! Happy New Year!!!

    The veg chili looks delicious! I just bought a new cookbook called Betty Crocker The 300 Calorie Cook Book. Seems to contain lots of easy recipes that I can throw together after work. I am pretty much just learning to cook since moving in with my fiance last year. Eating out is sooooo terrible for dieting. I was just looking up calories for the Original Pancake House since I am meeting a friend there tomorrow morning and everything is insanely high in calories, like 1200 calories for an omlette or 800 calories for pancakes! I think I am going to get an egg white veggie omelette! I just couldnt bare to spend 1,000 calories just on breakfast! oy!!!!

Good day

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

Hung out with the boyfriend this morning before he went to work, had a nice long workout this afternoon, babysat little Austin (even though he was sick and cranky...poor baby) and then I was lazy for the rest of the night. And now I'm sleepy so I'm going to lay down and watch TV or read. Goooooodnight everyone

  


Well, I had a very Merry Christmas

Monday, December 27, 2010

The whole family came to my house Christmas Eve. It was a lot of fun and it was good to see everybody. I got lots of good stuff for Christmas, and then yesterday my boyfriend, sister and I went shopping. Overall it was a good weekend and I'm sad that it had to come to an end. I did eat a TON though. Ugh, I felt so disgusting. But I got on the scale this morning and I weighed in at 119, so no big deal. I did Tae Bo for an hour so I burned off plenty of calories. Woohoo.
