A New Year, More Julie

I had to be stereotypical, right? Well in December, I attempted to do the #Reverb10 project which turned into a total FAIL with a busy work schedule, and a husband who works retail during the Holidays. But my one povital post in the #Reverb10 was actually the first post “One Word”.  I summed up 2010 as “chaos” and 2011 will be “recovery”.

Angry Husband dared me to stop drinking Dr. Pepper.  He said that I would probably lose some weight from not drinking it.  I know he is right. I’ve done it before.  Seriously, must find new addiction.  I guess I could find something to buy with all of the money that I spend on soda.

I’ve also made several appearances at the gym lately. I’m tired of being lazy and I am going to make time in my schedule.  And I’ve been playing with photography all weekend.  I used my 50mm lens all day yesterday and today I’ve been hanging out with my iPhone.  I fell in love with a new iPhone photo sharing app called Instagram. With Instagram, you can post your photos to various sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr all with one click.  I also love that you can see other people’s photos and they also list “popular” photos which are amazing. P.S. The app is FREE.

I took these New Year’s Eve Themed Photos last night with Instagram:

A New Year's Eve Checkpoint
An early New Year's Eve DUI

I am also going to do Project 365 this year.  Which means taking a photo every day.  I’m not doing self portraits.  I like myself, but not that much. I’ve chosen to take a photo everyday from my iPhone.  I’m posting them to my Flickr account under the set “Project 365“.  I’m mostly going to do a post every week with all of the photos I’ve taken throughout the week.  I always have my BFF, I mean iPhone with me, so it is a lot easier than using my SLR.

I started Day 1 of 365 off with a bang.  I’ve being purging and de-cluttering all week.  I’m driving my husband crazy.  I don’t care.  All of this stuff is making me manic.  I started this morning by dumping piles of my son’s toys on the bed and sorted them.  I even made him go through stuff to donate.

I am also in a spring cleaning-sort-of mood. But it's winter. I just want everything to poof. The clutter, that is... not the stuff I want to keep :)

I fell off the #reverb10 wagon too, but I think I'm gonna still finish it just not very quickly. I am doing a 365, it already gave me a mini panic attack - who knew I was such a commitment phob!? As soon as Verizon FINALLY gets the iPhone I'm with ya. I love your instagram shot!

I've been trying to decide if I'm going to do a photo 365 as well. I think I might do it on Facebook.

That is some funny stuff! Just because it is so familiar, I am not a cola junkie, but coffee with sugar. Hubby told me the other day...go to one sugar! I have not visited the gym. It has been a waste of money for me. I have so many exercise machines. It is like an additional sickness of mine. UGH! I love the idea of photos 365. I always have my iphone with me too. Love all Mac items. Have you looked at Spark People? It will help you keep track of food, fitness, and find other groups that fit your personality. Have a great year!!
