New Year's Inspiration

Happy New Year! As I have posted previously, I joined the #2014BloggerChallenge and the first January prompt is New Year's Inspiration. 

This is my inspiration.

The last time I wore this dress was for my birthday the year I turned 27. I want to be able to fit into this dress again and look HOT in it for my 33rd birthday this year.

While I have lost a little weight and have made strides toward living a healthier life in 2013, I intend to go full force toward this goal. The year I turned 30, I had a goal of 30lbs in my 30th year. Well, two months after I turned 30, I found out I was pregnant with Cecily so that went out the window. Now I have a new goal, 32 in my 32nd year (although if I lose more than 32 lbs that's ok too!). Taking back my health is a top priority. I know that it will only get harder and harder the older I get and I have some hereditary factors against me so this is something I not only want but need to do for myself. I intend to be around a long time with my husband and children!

  5. If I could use 35 pounds this year I'd be thrilled! I can't manage to lose 10 though so I doubt I'd be able to lose 35.

  18. Way to go Holly, the first step is making up your mind! Remember, slow and steady wins the race so no need to get discouraged if things don't happen as quickly as you planned. The most important thing is that you keep on moving towards your goal. No giving up, you've got this :)

  19. Hi Holly, I found your blog through 2014 Blogger Challenge. I wish you luck with your challenge and just wanted to say I find Strava and MyFitnessPal great for keeping track of exercise. Jules over at http://www.lippylikes.com/2013/12/new-year-new-me.html also uses (what sounds like a great app) "Model my diet" where you can see what you'll look like as you progress which should be motivational :)

  20. Way back when I did Weight Watchers, I used this web site that would show you what you'll look like as you lose weight. It was pretty cool. I'll have to check that app out!
