Happy 2018

Friday, January 5, 2018


We're 5 days into 2018, is anybody else having a hard time believing it's the new year already? 

  

December 2017 

The month of December was a tough one for me! Work was so busy I couldn't keep my head on straight. I also came down with a monster cold, which wasn't made any better by the fact that I really couldn't take time off from work because I was so busy. My cold actually got so bad it gave me an ear infection. While treating that with antibiotics, I came down with a yeast infection. (Antibiotics are no joke! - I also don't want to take them again anytime soon!) Also the Saturday before Christmas, as I was getting ready to meet up with some friends I stepped on a thorn in the bedroom carpet and got part of it stuck in my foot. It actually stayed in there until this week because I couldn't get it to come out. Luckily it has now been removed and my foot is feeling much better. 
  
Ringing in 2018 

Texan decided that we should take a New Year's vacation to ring in 2018, so we booked a trip down to Panama City Beach, Florida. Unfortunately we did not except the weather to be so cold all over the East Coast, so instead of getting the nice 60 - 70 degree weather we hoped for, we got barely 60 degrees and misty/dreary days for the most part, but we made the best of it. We spent the two sunny days walking on the beach, visiting the pier and drinking at Pineapple Willy's (if you are ever in Panama City Beach, I would recommend going there at sunset and sitting outside). We went to see the Beach Ball Drop at Pier Park. It was a really cool experience to be in a place where you could watch the ball drop live.  

Warning: Lot of photos to come.
  








 Goals for 2018 

I made a few resolutions for 2018. My first and main goal of this year is to lose 40 pounds and wear a size 6 by the end of the year. Weight loss is a typical resolution for me, but this year I really want to put the effort into making it happen. Texan's resolution was to work out 5 times a week so with both of us having health related goals, I'm hoping it will be extra motivation to actually achieve my weight loss goal this year.  

In addition to my weight loss goal, I want to clean out the fridge every Tuesday and print out photos I took each month to make a 2018 photo album. As for some online goals, I want to blog and vlog once per week, or at least have 52 posts on each platform by the end of the year.  

In general, I have high hopes for 2018. I want to use this year to take care of myself: physically, financially and mentally.  
  
What resolutions did you make for 2018?
