Happy New Year!

1-1-11... It just doesn't get cooler than that. It's the epic "new start" date. Awesome!

My friend asked what my resolutions were for this year. I told her that they were to continue to eat right, exercise, and stay a recovering smoker. If I do all of those things, I WILL reach my goals. How cool is that?! I'm so glad I'm already on the right path to improve myself. I want to be a stronger, leaner, healthier, more active me. I want to run, yes run, a 5K this year. I have 2 picked out. One in May and one in September. That's plenty of time to get in shape for them. I'm very excited. =)

I went to Target the other day and was trying on jeans. In one particular style I could wear a 6! I was ecstatic. lol I know that they probably run on the big side, but I didn't care. I was wearing a size 6. hehe My goal is to consistently wear a 6. I went to the gym 3 times last week. I want to continue that and go at least 3 times a week, if not more when possible. That will help me so much. I'll be leaner, more fit, less stressed (maybe?), and more motivated to eat right and stay non-smoking. When I exercise, it just inspires me to do well in other areas of my life. Does it do that for you?

I got my hair cut. I never liked myself with short hair, but since I've lost weight, it looks really cute. I'll try to add a picture soon.

Ok.. here are some Reverb10 posts....

Dec. 21 Prompt: Future self. Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)

(Wow I'm WAY behind!!)

Current self: Continue doing what you're doing. Exercise. Low carb. No smoking. You're on your way to a fabulous you! Keep it up.

26 yr old self in 2001: In June, you're gonna meet your future husband. You're not going to date at first, but once you get him, don't ever let him go. =)  Toward the end of the year, you're gonna be really happy, but it will end in a severe depression. Don't let it beat you! Your children are amazing. You're doing a great job. Be proud. 

Dec. 22 Prompt: Travel. How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?  

I went to WV in January. NOT my favorite time there. Went to the beach in May and September. Both were a blast. This year I want to go to the beach again and make it to Steelers training camp. Anything on top of that will be a bonus!

 Dec. 23 Prompt: New name. Let's meet again, for the first time. If you could introduce yourself to strangers by another name for just one day, what would it be and why?

Just call me Mrs. Depp. hehe Ok, seriously I wouldn't change my name. I've grown to love it. I used to play school with my sister and would always change my name, but I've since realized that it's part of me. My parents chose it just for me and I love it.

Dec. 24 Prompt: Everything's OK. What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead?

Over the years, I've learned that it's always gonna be ok. It may be rough as hell until it's ok, but it'll work out in the end and it's not the end until it's ok. ;-) My husband helps me remember that. He totally rocks.

I'll have to get back to the Dec. 25 prompt. It asks for a picture and I'm not prepared at the moment.
