Loving the new Star Wars movie! Chris took me to see it on Friday and I enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would. I won’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone reading this who might still be planning on seeing it, but yeah, I thought it was very well done and I would totally want to see it again in the theater. I think what I love most about the new movie is that it has a strong female protagonist. I’m all about that female empowerment!
Loathing how much winter weight I’ve gained. I’ve gained around 5 pounds since Halloween and I’m not excited about it. It all started with the stress of moving, and ever since then, I’ve been on a downward spiral of not working out much and eating unhealthy foods. I’m bummed about the weight gain but trying not to be hard on myself because it is the holiday season and I’m purposely indulging in food/drinks I love right now before possibly getting pregnant next year. I also plan on doing Whole30 again in January so I’m sure I can lose these 5 pounds (and then some) in no time.
Planning my goals for 2016. In addition to starting the year off with a Whole30 to get me back on track with healthy living, I have some ideas for new side hustles to help me with my personal finance goals. I also have some smaller goals I want to work on, like finish some house projects and work on making new friendships. I’m getting really excited to see what 2016 will bring.
Feeling judged a lot lately by family and friends. Judged because we chose to rent a house for now instead of buy. Judged because of the neighborhood we chose to live in. Judged because I’m a millennial. Judged because of my political beliefs. All of this judgement has been weighing heavy on me these last few months and it’s been making me kind of emotional. Family and friends should support and encourage you, not make you feel bad about who you are or your life choices.
Working on getting my Christmas shit together. I’m officially done with my gift shopping and most of my wrapping. Now I just need to figure out what to bring to a family get-together on Christmas Eve, and then figure out what I’ll need to host my family at my house on Christmas Day. We have another family get together to go to in the Bay Area the day after Christmas, so I predict it’s going to be a long weekend full of food, socializing, and… family. I’m already exhausted!
Looking forward to opening my Christmas gifts from Chris. He keeps dropping hints as to what he bought me and now I can’t wait to have them!
