101 in 1001 update

It’s been awhile since I’ve written about my 101 in 1001 list.  Right before I published this new list back in September, I wrote a post about what I learned my first attempt at finishing a 101 in 1001 list. #1 was “a lot can change in 2.75 years.”

Okay, a LOT can change in even less time. My 101 in 1001 list was written around the reality of my life at the moment. There are a few things on that list that hurt to look at, because I’d always imagined being able to tell a certain person about the things I was doing… and now we are no longer speaking. Sometimes looking at my 101 list reminds me of that and I feel a stab of pain, but I’m determined to push through that and so now… an update is very much in order!

#8. Celebrate 5 ridiculous holidays (01/05)

National Peanut Butter Day // stephanieorefice.net

When I was in Nashville, Travis & Megan helped me cross of 1/5 of these! We celebrated National Peanut Butter Day by making a bunch of peanut buttery things.

#48. Fill up my journal

Last entry of my journal!

#50. Finish/empty 50 smelly things

I keep track of this when I do my empties posts!

#51. Lose 20 lbs

Y’all I am literally SO CLOSE to this. Depending on the day (haha) I am often LESS THAN A POUND away from this. On a whim, I brought a whole bunch of old clothes in from the garage… I found this pair of American Eagle shorts that my dad + stepmom bought for me for my birthday in 2003. The shorts were too small back then, and I recently TOOK THE TAGS OFF AND WORE THEM. I’ve not been great about writing about my weight loss because it’s kind of unintentional (small decisions, such as using weight loss supplements) if you do not now which to use, read the Proven reviews at the link.

#76. New Glasses

Holy crap it’s REALLY been awhile since I’ve updated this 101 list!

#79. Redeem Rapid Rewards for a free flight

I wrote a blog post about it here. Slightly bittersweet to read, but whatever. No going back; only forwards.

#96. Send 5 packages using old Birchboxes

They SERIOUSLY make for the CUTEST little care packages! Add some fancy lace packing tape and it’s a super sweet little surprise to drop in the mail! but you can check out the few posts I have written here.



There are a few other ones that are in progress, but these are the ones that were worthy of being mentioned in a blog ;D

    that is so neat that you are so close to your goal of losing 20 lbs!!! what kind of small changes are you making?! walking more, less sugary drinks, etc? i need to kick my starbucks/coffee shop habit lol

      oh girl… i’d NEVER give up the coffee. i just stay away from oreos and try to be active. i’m also trying to get better on the whole drinking water thing too. 🙂

    This is awesome! That lace packing tape is so pretty! Michael and I really want to use our Rapid Rewards to go on a little weekend getaway somewhere, just because. Maybe Denver. We don’t know!

      denver is a HUGE southwest hub so i’m sure you could find some pretty cheap airfare! i love that about southwest; the wanna get away flights are SO AFFORDABLE.

    your glasses, as i’ve said on instagram, are the coolest. (and you rock them so well. i’m jealous.) and uninentional weight loss is so impressive (and sounds wayyyyy better than high-pressure dieting)! kinda like my casual stroll towards eating healthy. not a huge commitment or big deal; i just buy less doritos. 😛 i love this list!!!!

    • July 20, 2015 / 7:20 pm

      awwww THANKS about the glasses. i absolutely love them! they feel so ME these days. haha yeah on the doritos thing!! when people ask me what i’ve done to lose the weight i’m like “um stopped eating a whole bag of oreos at once, now i just eat half.” hahaha
