Overall 2012 was a good year with some notable highlights: I graduated from law school, passed the bar, got a job :), and joined weight watchers (notable because I made the decision to improve my health). Oh and, of course, how could I forget...I made my big screen debut. That's right folks, I was an extra in The Dark Knight Rises, the new Batman movie. Didn't you know that Pittsburgh is actually Gotham city? lol. I was one of those
The filming was in 2011, but the movie was released in 2012, so it was my debut. Here are a couple cool pictures from the filming too:
So now it is New Year's Eve and pretty much everyone is talking about the changes they will make for the new year, myself included. It's a new year, right? Time for a new you! Geeze. how many times have I heard that before?
Each year it is like I make empty promises to myself. This year needs to be different.
But, already this morning I found myself weighing the pros and cons fo allowing myself to get a piece (an 1100 calorie piece!) of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory tonight. We're celebrating the New Year! Surely a sweet treat would be ok. Really? I've done the math and if I skimped on every other meal and ate mostly vegetables the entire day then I could have enough calories for it. Really Katie? You've come to this? lol I have to laugh at myself. Sometimes I feel so strong saying no to cookies here and fast food there, but certain foods seem to trigger a crazy craving that makes me feel like I need to have it!
Well, I'm tired of it! Those foods that I think I need are just not worth it. I think that "It's not worth it" will be my new mantra this year when facing all those bad food choices. Because really...it's just not worth it!
If I keep doing what I've always done then I will only get the same results. So I know 2013 will be the year. I've made great progress these last couple of months and I am ready to carry it forward. I've started my resolutions, actually my list of 101 goals in 1001 days and I will post them all in another post later this week.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year's Eve! See you next year!
Do you have any big new year's resolutions this year?
