Today I have to say I was living very much in the future focused on this coming up instead of what was in front of me. Thankfully I have a lot to look forward to. Today was a struggle. I really would have liked the day off to just settle down but that didn't work out like I had hoped. It just has made me realize that although the job I have now isn't permanent niether is the other job that's running me thin & wearing me out.
Also this week I want to start working more on a side… Continue

Certain things I've been doing really well at. Monday thru Friday I work out a little bit every morning. I've noticed if I do it every morning I never procrastinate on it. So I'm happy with my progress there.
I do need to eat healthier. Eating better is not one of my strong points at all. I'm not really sure how to broaden that. I eat way too many carbs & Processed (junk) foods. Any suggestions would be helpful. Especially since when I was a kid I was a very picky eater &… Continue

Today was not one of my finest days. Currently my goal is to lose weight & become more fit. The actual number on the scale doesn't matter that much. I just want to feel amazing & healthy. Now I have been working out a little bit each day on top of going to dance practice twice a week.
As of Monday night I found out I got awarded a solo for our upcoming show in 2 & half weeks. I'm excited. But today I woke up with a low self esteem in regards to my current shape &… Continue

Alright I have some awesome news! I got myself a solo! And not just any solo, One where I am the only GIRL in the whole song. If you've ever heard the song "run around sue" then you know the basic point. I get to be the sluttly sue who "dances" with all the guys. There were many weeks where I honestly wasn't sure if I was going to get it.
I just decide to work on the things I needed to work on & tried my best not to think about it. It totally worked! I'm so glad I'm good enough… Continue

So yesterday (which was day one) the practice that I went to was actually really good for me. I went in there with a positive attitude and got a lot out of it. Today I got to practice for a few minute a few of the things I needed to work on. I'm glad that I'm trying to bring a better attitude to that instead of reinforcing the negative and only focusing on that. Also even though it's only been two days I've been pretty committed to sticking with some of my new habits I've been trying to form… Continue

This morning I spent an extra 15 minutes laying in bed not wanting to get up but once I did I got rolling pretty quick I even got one of my new habits out of the way! currently I'm going to try and jump rope a few minutes every day and stretch right after to help me get in better shape. (plus it also helps with my swing dancing) And I have to say doing that this morning gave me a little bit of an energy boost this morning!
Work went well today we were able to get a lot done. So I have… Continue

I have to say I'm excited for my new season. I need some more change in my life and since this season will hit and my birthday is smack in the middle it'll be awesome to share a new outlook, attitude and soon to be even better me to ring in that birthday.
Lately a lot of things have resonated with me. Just things that have kind of nudged me saying "hey you're on the right track" and that alone makes me a bit calmer since before my first season that was one of my biggest questions. Was… Continue

So as of right now I know I'm going to start my second season. And soon. Not really sure as to when though. I do know that one of my goals will be getting in shape. I lost 15 pounds prior to my first season and then I guess I lost the steam for the weight loss and got wrapped up in other things that were going on around me. I did (thankfully) didn't gain any of that weight loss back. But I have noticed some of my choices aren't always the best ones. So today I picked up a Jillian Michaels book… Continue

So I've started working on the video to recap my last 100 days. The more I look back, read or watch the things that I've done it makes me think of how amazing this journey really is. Yes it's long. Hard at times. But completely worth it. I've learned a lot about myself & the world in as little as 100 days.
Hopefully I'll get the video up tomorrow. *crosses fingers*
