My Goals...NOT Resolutions

Just a quick update on my week:  I've done good!  It was my birthday, and I even went out to eat a few times and I still lost weight!  I've stayed on track with my new healthy lifestyle, and I am SO happy!

Like I said last week, I have goals that are different from my resolutions.  My resolutions are set to help me become a better person.  My goals are just things I want to accomplish.  So here are my list of goals for 2013:  (Some of them are motivated by my weight loss.)

1.  Go skydiving.  I already have a few friends that are on board to do this.  You have to be at least 200 lbs. before you can go skydiving.   So this one is a goal and kind of a reward.  SO excited!
Do you like my awesome "Paint" project? :) haha

2.  Pay off debt.  I'm not swimming in it, but I am a student who doesn't really qualify for grants or scholarships.

3.  Get an Ipad.  Yup. :)

4.  Hike Havasupai.  My weight has always held me back when it comes to physical things, especially hiking.  By this summer I will be more fit and healthy, and I am going to go hike out to this B-e-a-UTIFUL place!

5.  This one is cliche, but...Take advantage of all aspects of life.  I want to LIVE my life and not in fear.  A lot of people don't know this about me, but I'm a scaredy-cat.  I get scared to meet new people (I sometimes have mini panic attacks and have to pump myself up), I get scared to do new things, I get scared when I'm not in my comfort zone, when I'm by myself (sometimes. I do LOVE going to movies by myself!).  This fear isn't a huge motivator, but sometimes it holds me back from meeting new friends or being myself 100%.  Well, no more...ish.  I know I'll still have bad days, but if a moment arises that scares me, I'm going to do it.  This is MY life.  I want to be as happy as possible, and this is MY year! :)

There you have it dearies.  This is the year of me!  By the end of this year I will have accomplished SO much and I'm so excited!  Last year was pretty awesome, but I get the feeling this year is going to rock! :)

How many of you are starting a journey of your own?  Remember that it's not just about losing weight, you really do need to observe all aspects of you life and make little changes here and little changes there.  That is what has helped me be successful thus far, and what will help me in the future.  If you need help, or motivation, just ask!  I will be your friend to help you when it gets hard, and I KNOW it gets hard.  I'm here for you all!  

Keep pushing through and making healthy choices!

Peace and Blessings!  xoxo


  1. Good for you Emily! You can do it! My goals are:
    drop 2 pants sizes. Not yell in my house so much. And get Rick to do the Dirty Dash this year!!! lol. I've been skydiving and trust me, it is a thrill that will last a lifetime. Also, can I come hike Havasupai with you? :D

  2. This is great! You inspire me! I wish I had your motivation, but I am trying.

  3. I have always wanted to go skydiving but weight held me back as well. Huge goal of mine!

  4. I can't believe how inspiring you are. I mean, I can, because you are awesome, but you seriously inspire me. And I'm kind of a curmudgeon, so that doesn't always happen.
