a few goals for 2012

It's a new year.
After the sugar shock I went into last month...
I think it's time to detox!
A friend on facebook said she is going with no candy until Valentine's.
I thought that that was a great goal and obtainable!
I gained 4 pounds over the holidays... BOO!

So with the new year I am going to resurrect,
Weigh in Wednesdays.
Every Wednesday I will show my progress.
You can join me.
Keep me accountable and I will keep you accountable!
I will work hard all week and then I will let you know how it paid off.
I will also be adding what I did each day, in a quick list.
Just to give you ideas of what you can do.
If you haven't already, Pinterest is loaded with ideas for workouts.
A lot of them just needs YOU.
No workout equipment! I think that is great!
I would love it if you joined me :)
I would love to know that I am not the only one trying to lose my extra flab :)


Okay now onto what I have been wanting to get a handle on for a long time.
My photos.
They are out of control!
Seriously, I have 10's of thousands of photos and they are either on my computer or a disc.
It's bad.
Plus, I haven't printed any photos for my house in about 7 years!
That is sad.
I have so many awesome photos and they are all stored away, for nobody to enjoy!
I haven't completely decided what I want to do yet, but I do know that I want them
in a book so I can enjoy them now!
I came across this idea on Pinterest.
I like the idea of simple.
It's not super elaborate scrapbooking and I like that A LOT!
That is one thing that keeps holding me back from scrapbooking.
It takes a lot of time to create one beautiful page you see so many people creating.
There is nothing wrong with the elaborate method.
I have a ton of books with pages that are elaborate, but in a sense it is crippling me.
In my OCD, everything should look perfect mind,
I don't scrapbook because I don't have the time to create such beautiful pages.
In reality, what makes the page beautiful?
The photos!
If you have any suggestions on what you do to simplify your photos, please tell me!
I'm overwhelmed with this project, but I need to start!

This could be a post that I would have written Trisha. I will check out your Pinterest idea. I too have not printd anything in years. It's my goal for 2012 to fill my walls with images of my family.
I will think about Wednesday weigh ins with you. I too went back to sugar in November and am cutting myself off as of today.
