Goodbye 2013

Well, well, well...

Another year has come and gone and I feel like it's only appropriate to do a quick look back at my year through iPhone pictures. I had originally planned to have this post done first thing this morning, but life kind of got in the way, and the only reason it's even happening now is because Juliette and Allie both yelled at me last night for not finishing it... so here we go.

2013 was honestly a pretty amazing year. I changed physically, mentally, emotionally, and probably spiritually as well. Instead of writing lots of words to recap my year, I'm just going to post a few collages that I threw together to highlight some things that stood out in my head.

  • Goodbye fat.
    I'm officially down ONE HUNDRED POUNDS from my heaviest weight. But this year I've lost about 75lbs.

    The top middle picture and bottom middle picture are the same shirt.

  • Goodbye workouts.
    Like you'd expect from my last point... I worked out a LOT this year. A lot. A lot. A lot. Goodbye 2013 workouts. Time to change things up and take my fitness to the next level in 2014.

  • Goodbye Home Sweet Home.
    I made a two trips back to Halifax this year to visit family and friends. My parents will be selling my home in Spring 2014 so I have officially said goodbye to the house that I spent the past 10 years knowing as my home sweet home. These are some of my favourite memories from my visits with family.

  • Goodbye Randomness with Amanda...
    I felt as though it was only fitting to have a collage of pictures with Amanda. We kind of spend every day together, so we have our fair share of random memories, adventures, and silliness. Goodbye 2013 randomness, I'm ready to bring on the 2014 adventures riiiight now.

  • Goodbye Spider.
    I felt like this big jackass deserved his own collage because this was a VERY traumatic experience. Goodbye spider. Forever.

  • Goodbye Laughs (and Drunken Adventures)..
    ...Until 2014. Obviously the laughs, good times, and drunken shenanigans with friends will never end. Bring it on, 2014. I'm ready for ya.

  • Goodbye Concerts, Events, and Road Trips.
    2013 was an amazing years for concerts and events. I got to attend so many great shows, and see so many great things. I'm excited to kick 2014 with seeing JT in concert AGAIN.

Goodbye 2013 - You were an incredible year and I'm excited to see what 2014 brings.
See you all next year!

Your weight loss is extremely epic and inspirational, you better be so proud of yourself because that's awesome. It's amazing all that can be done in such a short span of year if you are determined and motivated.
Hope your next year is just as eventful and fufilling.
