Day 28 - Has it been four weeks?

So today marks my four week mark! Yay! It really has flown - I mean it seems like yesterday since I've started this blog. So it's a pretty big thing.

Today was uneventful - I had to go all the way to the apple store 30 minutes from my house so they could help me with some problems I had with my iphone. I was 7 (literally 7) minutes late to my scheduled appointment of 12:30, so I had to reschedule to 1:40. So normally this would be okay, and I would go browse around the mall looking at stuff and what not, but there was a problem - I was with my dad. And today was game day. And he had to work tonight. So I had a new mission to keep dad cool and not frustrated with an already frustrating situation. The mission was to resolve the problem and get home before 3:15 to watch the Cowboys (who may I say, won tonight, 24-0 (: ). We went and had lunch, and I got to catch up with him, which I normally never get to do because we're always so busy. Then I finally got to go to my appointment, get my phone fixed (I think) and headed home, pulling in the driveway at 2:48. So mission accomplished.

Earlier after the game ended, I browsed the 5,000 blogs I follow, and was looking at a lot of everyone's posts. And mostly everyone I follow has had a new years resolution blog. Now I am someone who HATES resolutions, mostly because I never follow mine. I can tell you all day that I'm gonna clean out my room, study more, eat out less, yada yada yada, but in about a month and a half I will not even remember what I resolved to, or that I even had a resolution. So I decided I'm not going to have a resolution this year. I am going to have a goal list, and a reward list. And this is how I've compiled it:

The 2010 Goals and Rewards List

  • Leave the size 14 jeans behind.
  • Embrace the positives in everything.
  • Try something new at least once a month.
  • Get a steady workout regimen together and actually follow it.
And Rewards:
  • Lose 15 pounds (from original 200) and get a cute outfit from Nordstroms :)
  • Smile at the fact that I'm losing weight!
  • Be confident in my cut clothes.
So maybe they seem lame or stupid or whatever, but I like them. And maybe I'll revise them and maybe I won't, But I know that I will obtain them. And I'm glad that you'll all be here to watch me :)


  1. Rewards are always nice. :) :) :)
    Good luck and keep up the good work!

  2. Great post. Rewards keep me going too. I just got some cute dark purple nail polish for sticking to my workouts. You would think getting healthier and losing weight would be reward enough, lol, but it's hard work sometimes. I find that little, non food rewards really help.
    Keep up the good work.

  3. "So maybe they seem lame or stupid or whatever, but I like them."

    No need for defending, girl! This is YOUR blog, besides.. they're GREAT goals. We will make sure we hold you to them!

  4. Not lame or stupid in the least! Go you for making it a month! I have been bad the past few weeks so reading your blog has helped me kick me rear in gear.
    Stop by my blog today and enter to win Progesso's SOUPER you contest on their website. Girl, you could win a New York makeover with clothes BETTER than what they have at Nordstom's lol ;)
