2011 - Bring it!!!

2011 has arrived and I say "BRING IT!" I really have quite a few things going for me this year: got engaged, in the process of buying a new home (which the listing was officially taken off as of December 28th), I surround myself with wonderful people and as far as I know, no one is really sick or ill. (Thinking of you still, Cousin Nat.)

Because DB and I are so focused on saving money and preparing to move to a new part of the Bay Area, we stayed in for New Year's Eve. We ended up getting into bed at 6 PM with Bevo and his buddy, Toby, whom we were dog sitting while his mommy partied it up in San Francisco. We watched about 5 episodes of LOST on Netflix. Yes, we are a bit behind. Still on the 2nd to last season. DB called his parents on the East Coast right after midnight as usual. We watched the ball drop and I had my New Year's kiss from my fiance, my puppy dog and from Tobes. A pretty chill evening. We promised each other that we'd party it up next year. But for now, we're doing what we need to do.

As far as a New Year's Resolution, I didn't make one. Many people choose to get healthy and to lose weight. I've been on that track already and things are going a-OK. I've got some tightening up to do in some areas but I see some definition in places, especially when the lighting angle is working with me. Ha! So, I will continue down that road along with my Biolean and ProXtreme whey protein powder from www.TheWellnessShot.com. But it is a challenge right now to eat healthy when you have to be on a budget. Currently I am eating up everything that has been in the house but still hasn't expired, like cans of soup, canned tuna, boxes of pasta, etc. They're packaged foods that don't have fresh ingredients and are typically high in sodium. And pasta! Carbs, carbs, carbs. I was on a no-carb after 5 PM kick but I stopped that months ago. I will have to get back to that eventually. But I have decided to get back at tracking what I am eating and my workouts at DailyBurn.com. I have to do something active everyday.

And just a side note, I haven't been sick in over 6 months. I believe I owe a BIG thanks to my Biolean.

I know I'm not the most patient person. I'm quick to fly off the handle, raise my voice, roll the eyes and have smoke coming out of my ears. And this is especially towards my new fiance. I have to chill out on that. I think I have improved by letting some things not get to me by not retaliating, but I know I could be better.

Things have changed quite a bit in the friends-department. I know a lot of people and love going out, catching up over dinner and because of things like Facebook and texting, I don't think I'm that interactive with people nowadays. With the WIN business, it has helped me to actually pick up the phone and talk to someone, not just shoot them an email or leave a comment on their FB page. I do try to reach out to folks but it'll always come down to those people that you've been friends with for a long time that will return your phone call. There's a reason why they're still your friends. With me moving farther East, I hope those friendships will remain intact and continually become stronger. I am also looking forward to meeting people in my new hometown come February.

  1. 2011 is just another year. Like you, I don't have any resolutions really. I have been on the health track since July and it's going well, me thinks.

    By the end of 2011 I am just hoping to be debt free except for the house. Plan on paying that 15yr loan off in a year. So I'll be sticking to my frugal ways.
