Blizzard, Date night, Elbows, & My New Year's Resolution

Thursday, December 31, 2009

     I don't think I've ever made a New Year's Resolution, besides the every-year-nonchalant-i-want-to-lose-weight-this-year one. This year, though, I've already lost weight and I already know I'm going to keep at it. So, I have a NEW New Year's Resolution: to stop saying negative things about myself. And hopefully to get to a point where I stop thinking them, too. I'm learning more and more that the relationship I have with myself is one of the most important. If I get to goal and I don't already love myself, nothing is going to change. I'll gain all the weight back and end up still being miserable. So I plan to work very hard this year on learning about myself, trusting myself, being honest with myself, and loving myself EXACTLY AS I AM. One thing that I plan on doing to help achieve this resolution is talking to a counselor. I've been trying to find one that I am comfortable with for a very long time, but I need to make a better effort, so I am going to. This will definitely be as hard - probably harder - than losing weight, but I'm up for the challenge. I'm ready to start living my life.

     Yesterday was my & my honey's 1 year 8 month anniversary ♥♥♥. We're celebrating tonight (hopefully, if the weather allows!) by going to see a movie and eat at our favorite restaurant :). I'm so excited!! I love you boo!

     Ooohhh, and I also wanted to tell you something else - I think my elbows are getting smaller! Last night I was laying in bed with my arms over my eyes, and I realized that I could reach further across and that my elbows are growing bones :O! Woooooooh!

     It's seriously a blizzard here right now. I took pictures, but they look pretty much the same as the last snow pictures I posted and you can't really tell how hard it's coming down. I live in Texas, so we don't always get a lot of snow in the winter (or in any of the other seasons, hmph). This winter, thought, is a different story. It seems like it's snowing every other day! And I don't mean a light flurry; it's full-on, windy, big-flaked, sticking to everything, inches-thick snow. This particular storm started sometime last night and it still going strong; apparently it's not supposed to stop until 6pm! I just hope we can still go on our date! Other than that, I LOVEEEEEEE it :).

     Have you made a New Year's Resolution this year? What are you planning to do to make sure & stick with it?
     I hope you ALL have a PERFECT New Year and I will talk to you in 2010 ;)!
xo,
Carissa

"I think my elbows are getting smaller! "

Once you start losing weight you notice your weight loss in random places like your elbow. It's awesome!

Good luck on your new years resolution. Being more positive seems so simple but it can be difficult. I'm sure you can pull it off :)

My resolution is to "chill out". I stress out over everything. This year I want to let the little things that would normally stress me out to just roll off.

Have a great day! Enjoy the blizzard in Texas :)
