So wordpress is doing a challenge to post once a day (never happening sorry) or once a week as like a New Years resolution-y thing. Lately I have been feeling like I should/want to blog more often than I do now (shouldn’t be to hard since right now I basically don’t blog :P)

So I thought “hmm one blog a week I might be able to do that.” Maybe this is a really bad idea since lately my title is more relevant in reference to my mental status than my weight (also I am now 17 not 16… should I change it??) but I like blogging for some reason. So yeah… I’m thinking that I will (try to) blog once a week.

Now don’t expect lots of pictures of what I’m eating and stuff every week. Because honestly I just don’t have the time to put in all those pictures. And quite honestly I get really bored of just saying “Hey! I ate this and this and this and this… ok bye!” So this will probably become more of a blog just about my life (which will include food and weight loss but not exclusively). I can’t say that it will be very exciting but maybe you will find my life more interesting than I do. The grass is always greener right?

So there ya go! I am going to revamp 16 and Losing It tomorrow hopefully (new look for 2011?) and we’ll see how this goes!!

Do you have any resolutions for the new year?

Other than this blog I want too…

try to get a better handle on school its been kicking my a*** lately and basically making my life miserable

along that route I simply want to work on improving my outlook on everything. I am normally a very optimistic person and the last few months all the stress has been getting to me I think and I have been felling a little more down. I am trying to remember Liz Gilbert’s (of Eat, Pray, Love fame) mantra of “I will not harbor unhealthy thoughts” and channel that as best I can.

Take weight loss one day at a time. I can get a little freaked out about keeping up my motivation long term and whatnot. I think I need to just focus on each day as it comes. Because honestly I can’t change the past and I can’t know the future so the only thing I can control is my actions in the present. I am the kind of person who is always looking forward or back and forgetting about the “hear and now” so I want to work on that in everything but especially for my eating and motivation.

Those are my big goals for 2011. This post has gotten much longer than I planned which I guess is never a bad thing! Enjoy your New Years!!
