APRIL UPDATE!!

  • Weight 12/12   (success!)
  • Production 4/12   (1 up!)
  • Acting 2/12   (same…for now!)
  • Weddings 1/12   (staying steady)
  • Reading ?/12   (I’ve essentially given up on tracking this one. See last post.)

Woohoo! I reached my goal for weight loss! Although, I will say, it was only for a day. My weight fluctuates pretty easily, so I wasn’t surprised that I’d reached the 12lb goal last Wednesday, then gained another 2 pounds by Thursday. The most rewarding thing is that I have a new mindset about fitness and wellness. And I do Zumba now!

I’ve been slacking on the photography front. Womp womp…Good thing I’m doing these check ins! Gotta put the fire under my butt again!

But right now, I am le tired…

MARCH UPDATE

Aaaaaaalrighty! So where are we, Vivi?

  • Weight 9/12   (5 up!)
  • Production 3/12   (1 up!)
  • Acting 2/12   (1 up!)
  • Weddings 1/12   (1 up!)
  • Reading ?/12   (what’s uuup!)

As you can see, I have yet to figure out how the whole reading thing ties into it all. “Twelve minutes of reading a day” doesn’t seem to be a good way for me track my reading. I could say I definitely read at least 12 minutes a day…if you count all those BuzzFeed posts and other random internet articles.

I do highly recommend everyone subscribe to The Skimm if you are interested in keeping up with current events. I’m not that great at keeping up with what’s going on in the world, but The Skimm is great! I would consider this my 12 minutes a day, but again, it’s hard to keep track of the timing.

How’s everyone else doing? Let me know in the comments!

“What are you doing?!”

You know that thought. That slimy, unattractive though that creeps into your mind every now and then with a deflating presence.

What am I doing?

It’s such a loaded question, or at least it’s always been for me. My closest friends know that every 4-6 months I will have somewhat of a mini-life crisis where I’m constantly questioning what the hell I’m doing with my life.

I’d like to address that thought this morning (with more poise than I’d truly like to deliver).

Dear Confusing Thought, 

Go dunk yourself.

Sincerely, Vivi.

“Git Er Dozen!”

Well, Folks! It’s the start of a new year. 2015. Can you believe it?! I was just getting used to 2014!

And like every January, of every year, it’s time to start thinking about….

Resolutions.

Ugh. That word- resolutions– puts a sour taste in my mouth. Maybe it’s because every year society berates us with notions that we need to lose more weight or get a better job. Or, maybe I’m a little bitter at myself for not always following through with previous year’s resolutions. More likely, it’s a little of both. I’m mad that society tells me to eat healthier and mad at myself for not being capable of doing it for more than 2 months at a time.
