Embrace It........

My facebook post today stated "I am determined to have an amazing day today!  Lets embrace what the day brings." <3 Boy do I ever need the courage to live by this statement.  So my job that pays the rent has the best way of enhancing my want and need to finish school.  For any of you who know me, you will know that I give 110% when I care about something and lately in the work realm I just don't want to give it.  Why do we get caught up in a job or a life that is not making us happy?  Could it be that the job is enhancing a part of our life that would not be there without it? Or is it comfortability?  Hmm  I sit here and wander just what it is for me.  I look at where I am at my age and think What to do now?  (Hence the title of my blog)  I want to be done with school which will require less at work.....it can be done though.  Really want to buy a house....which is possible if I absolutely save everything I make.  So I made a list of all the things I want and/or need.  I am going to just cross them off one at a time and embrace this new way of life.  Here is to a new year and a new me.  Embrace It!

Great People in my Life.....

I have some of the most amazing people in my life.  I don't always tell them enough but I love them.  They bring out the very best in me.   I have the most amazing sister.  I never realized that when we were younger but now looking back on when we were kids I can't imagine how we ever fought.  Jess, You give me so much strength and a strong will to be a better person each and every day.  I am so proud of the person that you have become in your life and only pray that each of your days get better.  Thank You for being such a significant part in my life. I Love You!

Resolution Mode Day 2

At 7:30am this morning my wonderful alarm goes off and wakes me out of my blissful sleep for yet another day at the gym.  Its my day off and a friend has said that she wanted to get up and go to one of the classes that our gym offers.  I agreed.  Not such a bad idea except I have come to hate waking up early so this was hell for me.  Instead of getting out of bed to start getting ready I send my friend a text to verify that we will still be going in as planned.  Sure enough its a go and I'm thinking, "Oh! eff My Life."  I get up and have a huge glass of water getting ready and meet her there.  When we arrive 15 minutes early we see the class is already full and not available. "Now we know to come earlier," she says.  Well we are already up and hungry so instead of my strenuous work out we go to have a not so healthy breakfast then back to the grind to meet with the personal trainer.  Feeling horrible about the breakfast I had eaten I signed up for a personal trainer and decided that now I am really going to be getting even more focused than I already was.   I lost 3 more pounds today making it a grand total of 16 in 3 weeks.  Things are getting off to a great start.  No more delicious breakfasts for me though.  Woosh!  Thank You 3 more pounds off.

Resolution Mode.....

So as I began this year I wrote out a list of Resolutions that I wanted to achieve within the next year.  On this list it included the usual losing weight, getting out of debt and organizing my life. These are the same resolutions I have had for the last couple of years.  So, why now am I wanting to really act on them.  Well!  I was looking in the mirror the other day and thought to myself, "I hate my legs and thighs."  Time to do something about it.  So I joined the Gym and are starting a nutritional plan.  Being healthy is not easy and is going to take a mental mode switch to focus.  I need to focus and I am going to lose weight. 80 pounds to start and 150 to finish.  So here is to the start of a new blog and a new me.  Hopefully everyone will look to read my blogs and walk down this path with me.  More blogs to come.
