NYE and a Linkup

12:01 AM

Top:  Banana Republic // Pants:  Banana Republic // Shoes:  Betsey Johnson (old, Marshalls)

This will be my last linkup of this year!  It’s so refreshing to say that, because I feel as though 2016 was not many people’s years, including mine.  I’m extremely excited to start 2017 off on the right foot.  I know it sounds dumb to some people because they think it’s all about how you react to a situation and you can’t blame the year 2016 bla bla bla.  Yes, you are correct however some people (like myself) are superstitious enough to think that once the new year hits I can just start over.  It’s a new year. 

I mean, there were a lot of good things that happened this year too and this will be the first year that one of my resolutions DOES NOT involve losing weight or living a healthier life!  I’m so proud that I’ve been able to lose 41 lbs (and counting).  I didn’t feel guilty when I ate holiday food and stuffed my face because I knew that I would be right back at the next day with my meal prepping, my shakes, and workouts.  I physically feel a lot better and I’m less tired so I will definitely be sticking with this plus I’m a coach now so I have other people counting on me to pave the way and help them reach their own goals.  I also moved out of my parent’s house for the second time haha, I adopted another puppy (that’s actually more like trex than an almost 2 year old), even though I was rear ended at least I can say I got a new car (so another new beginning), and so many other things.
