Another year is coming to an end. 2013 was very good to me. I honestly think it's been the best year of my life thus far. A lot of it has to do with my boyfriend. He really has made my world better. I've learned a lot about myself and who I want to be.
I've learned that I can do anything I set my mind to. I proved that by completing a half marathon.
I've learned my body is an incredible machine.
I've learned lifting weights will NOT make you bulk up like you've been told for so long.
I've learned sometimes staying quiet is better.
I've learned I do not have to wash my hair every day. Who ever invented dry shampoo must be one of God's special helpers.
I've learned that sugar-free foods can be even worse than the regular version.
I've learned that acne is my body's way of telling me there's a problem on the inside. Whether it's what I've been eating or stress - As much as I hate acne, I also appreciate the warning signs.
I've learned that I don't need tons of cream and sugar in my coffee.
I've learned that junk food is not worth it.
I've learned that taking time for yourself is necessary and totally okay.
I've learned that I do not need cheese in my life.
I've learned that the best things to eat are whole foods in their natural state.
I've learned that waking up at 5am to workout really isn't that difficult.
I've learned that certain foods can not be kept in my home.
I've learned that cardio alone will not make me thin.
I've learned that Prince Charming does exist.
All of this knowledge has helped a lot when thinking about my goals for the up-coming year.
Here is the list of goals that I have made for myself:
Lift more weights.
Do less cardio.
Avoid sugar as much as possible (this includes sugar free stuff too).
Weigh yourself no more than once a week.
Work on being more patient.
Do something to relieve stress every day.
Here's to an amazing year!!!
