I’ve been watching several movies (both old and new) in the past months. I didn’t know I’d enjoy it that much. Watching movies not only relaxes me, but it also broadens my horizons and makes me forget about my problems, albeit temporarily. I noticed that whenever I don’t have work at night, I’d choose from my list of ‘Movies to Watch’ and check if it’s available in my two favorite movie sites: www.stagevu.com and www.zmovie.tv. If that particular movie’s not available, I’d choose another title until I get to watch one. I’m that determined.
Movie watching as a pastime allows me to have ‘me time.’ It sets my mood. It calms my spirit and makes me inspired. I think ‘therapeutic’ is the more appropriate term. I also get a sense of fulfillment after watching a film which I personally chose and whose plot/theme piqued my curiosity and got me thinking. I mean, not all movies have that effect on me. My selection of movies may be limited but I am happy to note that they are all worth watching. Or so I think.

When it comes to fashion, I’m anything but outdated. I get to know the latest trends by reading fashion magazines and blogs and by checking out what local celebrities are wearing on TV. Other than that, I know nothing more about fashion and dressing up.

Speaking of dressing up, I have decided that this 2011, I would dress up more often both at work and when going out. This goal will allow me to achieve four things: 1) wear the many new items in my closet that are starting to accumulate dust, 2) be more confident about my body, 3) develop my personal style and unleash the ‘fashionista’ in me 4) please the boyfriend, my family, my friends and myself.

I want to start the year right. Topping my 2011 goals is losing weight. Unlike others who have only gained a few pounds after the holidays, I welcomed 2011 with 20 unwanted pounds. Yes, not just one or four but 20. Imagine that. I’m bordering on obesity and I’m very alarmed. I know in my heart I have to do something about it.
the chubby me, not a good sight methinks
I have started dieting last week. So far, I have already lost four pounds. Some may think it’s fast but fortunately for me, I have this way of losing weight that only my body can understand. Hopefully, I could go back to my ideal weight of 115 in the coming weeks.

When 2011 came, I’ve thought of several goals to achieve. For some reason, though, I couldn’t make a list of them. Instead, the goals pop up in my head one at a time. Somehow I knew it would take time before all goals get into my head so I decided to just post my goal one at a time as well. Does that even make sense to you? I hope it does. Haha.
But contrary to the usual goals that change people from a good to a better version of themselves, I thought it would be wise to keep the good things going and change the bad things at once or set it to a more controllable/manageable level.

My family and I celebrated New Year’s Day in our Cavite home. It was our first time to do that and we were so happy and thankful. We are all optimistic about the new year. Our 2010 has been very fruitful and we hope that 2011 will be better.
I don’t have a list of New Year’s resolutions but there are a few things which I’d like to focus on this year. Primary among them is my weight. I need to lose weight because I’m already bordering on obesity. I mean, seriously. I’m at 140 lbs. now. I gained 20 unwanted pounds during the last three months, imagine that! I need to figure out how to lose these excess pounds lest I get paranoid and depressed and sickly all the time.

My blog hopping the past days has enabled me to gain insights on things that preoccupy the mind of other bloggers at present. There’s this trend I spotted right on. Many of them have come up with a list of the things they want to do or accomplish within a specified timeline. While some call it a ‘bucket list,’ others call it a ‘ life project.’ But the goals are the same. They want to make a better person out of themselves by trying gutsy activities, experiencing unusual highs, accomplishing big things and engaging in extraordinary pursuits.
