Check-in #2

Tonight, I am linking up with Lauren from Kisses from the Mrs again for my 2nd Strive for my Five:

Resolution #1: Be healthier 
If I am going to be honest with myself, and anyone who reads this, I have not really been very healthy nor have I tried that hard to be.  But I will not let that be my excuse to forget this resolution/goal like the old Alyson would do.  Since I got sick and pretty much fasted/got rid (although not voluntarily) of everything I decided that would be a good way to push me in the right direction to seriously start cutting out gluten and dairy from diet.
I haven't run or looked into any kick-butt classes yet but still have to plans do both in the near future.  I just wish it wasn't cold (or every) in January.

Resolution #2: Complete a 365 Photo challenge
Like I mentioned in this post, I am loving this challenge a lot more than I thought I would.  I assumed I would dread it eventually but have not found that to be the case in the least.  And I love the positive feedback I have been getting from others.  Some have even shared they want to start their own project which I love to hear!
And not only has this challenged me creatively but technically as well.  A lot of my photos have come back with an orange-ish tint to them which is never good.  Up until this weekend I shot with the Auto White Balance but have been manually changing it once I realized my mistake.  And I am happy with my results so far!

Resolution #3: Make more time for us
Husband and I have been hanging out more often and I am loving it!  I recently bought a Groupon for lunch at local restaurant in Pittsburgh so I am hoping for a date day in Pittsburgh on Friday.  Otherwise, we pretty much have just been cuddling on the couch over recent Red Box rentals.  Hey, I am cheap date:)

Resolution #4: Spend more time with friends
I met up with my old coworkers, who I consider to be some of my closest friends, last Tuesday night.  It was the first time we got together since the new year.  It was so nice to see them and catch up!  I really do miss seeing them everyday (but not enough to go back to the job;)).

I cannot believe it is already mid January!  I hope the second half goes as fast.

Kisses from the Mrs.

  1. If you have any awesome gluten free recipes I would be really interested in learning about them! And, just so you know, I love your 365 project. Also, GROUPON IS THE BEST THING EVER. Glad you're having fun with the hubs!


I love hearing from y'all. Comments are my favorite!
