A New Year, But An Old Me

Ok, ok, so I know I haven't been keeping up to date with my January photo-a-day, in fact, I've only done what, one or two days?  So I'm scrapping January and looking forward to February, where I WILL DO IT. I'll be printing out multiple copies of the topics list and putting them in my car, in my house, and in my purse so I have no more excuses as to why I am not keeping up.

On another note, my gym going has been steady!  I've been trying to go as many times a week as I can, but a minimum of 2 times is mandatory!  I've fallen in love with running and I've been trying to get my stamina up.  My friend Gina, told me she was running a half marathon and that really inspired me to get into running.  Maybe not a half marathon, but a smaller 5K benchmark to start!  I've been cruising Pinterest looking for different ways to do this and I've come across a couple that are intriguing.  One is the Couch-To-5K program which is essentially what I thought I wanted, but this program is for straight up beginners!  Another one I've found is a Beginner-To-5k plan, which is actually shorter than the Couch-To-5k at 5 weeks as opposed to 8.  I think I'll be attempting the beginner plan because it incorporates other exercise as well as running, so it's working ALL over.

So even though it's a brand new year, I have decided to go back to the old me.  I have chopped off my hair and have gone back to my short angled bob style.  This have been the ultimate refresher for me.  I feel like myself again, and I feel so much more confident about my appearance.  This look is one I had for 3 years and I always felt super pretty wearing it, so I'm happy to be home.

How have you been doing with your resolutions?

January Photo-A-Day

Ok, so we all know December's photo-a-day challened was a complete bust on my part.  It didn't get done due to 3 reasons.  1) I was super busy this christmas season with work and shopping and whatnot 2) I didn't have a printout of the days topics like I have had before 3) just plain laziness!  So here I am in the new year, attempting to once again complete a photo challenge, and have that sense of accomplishment early in the year, to keep the ball rolling!  If you wanna do this too, here is the topic list!

I'll try and update once a week, so as not to overwhelm everyone on my FB with constant "Blog update" posts!
But I'll give you the 1st as a treat!

Day 1.  Today
Me and Yuta spent our day snuggled up together before work.
