Last Post of 2009

Its 11:56 PM on December 31st as I write this. 2010 is going to be a crazy year for me - I am graduating college this year and the year "2010" has always been in the back of my mind because of this. It's a little terrifying. This year was a good one; I reached 158,000 subscribers on YouTube which is insane! I had my one year YouTube birthday and hit a view bumps, but I am still loving it - even more than I was last year at this time!

Here are my New Years Resolutions - maybe on December 31st, 2010 I will do another post and see how many of these I accomplished :)

1) To drink more water (8 cups a day) and less diet coke (max 1 a day).
2) To continue to eat healthy and stay the size I am now (at least I don't have the dreaded "lose weight" resolution!)
3) To graduate in may from college
4) To continue YouTube and not slack on videos like I did some this year.
5) To meet a nice boy! (LOL!)
6) To update this blog at least 5 times a month (cause I'm a major slacker on here too)

Okay now it's your turn - what are your resolutions?

Sounds great Elle, im sooo happy for you! 2009 was mostly poo for me but it had some good points, one of which being that i discovered the YT makeup community :).
I was supposed to be graduating in 2010 aswell, but I've been slow/switched majors lots so that will not happen for a while
anywho my resolutions!
1)I want to weight train! I lost so much weight and looked really good when i was weight training like a year ago, i need to go to like a manly gym for this
2) i want a bigger butt >(
3) i want to move far far away from where im at right now. Which will happen for sure, since ive already been accepted to a west coast UNi.
4) uhmmmmmaybe make YT vids
5) look at something positively before i look at it in a negative sense
6) a man sounds good, im with you on that
thats all ive got so far

Be healthier by losing a few fat pounds & gaining some muscle. And drink more water!

I agree with the drinking more water... It's good all the way around. Also trying P90X. Love that it has Kenpo (sp?) and Yoga. You should check out I'm doing it more for tone than for weight loss. Hope you had a Happy New Year! Keep up the good works =)

I'm with you on the diet coke thing. I'm trying to stick to caffeine free and only have 1 a day..but i just can't eat anything salty without those cravings..

Anonymous said...

omgoodness diet coke is SOOOOO bad for you!!

the carbonation that can be found in diet soda leads to fluid retention, and just because its low in sugar doesnt mean its not high in other crappy things for your body!

and one diet coke a day?

you are seriously asking to die prematurely

Anonymous said...

1) lose weight and be more healthy (I want to be size 8uk)
2) have the courage to remove all my wisdom teeth (eeek)
3) volunteer in a hospital (during summer)
4) work harder in college

6)get out of my comfort zone
7) party more
8)meet new people
