2008 is now gone and in the past, and there's no need to continue focusing on my shoulda, woulda, coulda's. What I CAN do is take my life learned lessons and allow them to guide me in my future.

In 2009 I'm claiming my happiness, my health, my peace, my love, my joy, my faithfulness to God, my healthy and stronger marriage, my healthy self-esteem, my prosperity and the abundant life that my God promised me.

In the next coming months, my goal is to lose at least 40 lbs before I seriously begin trying to start a family. I deserve a healthy life and so does my future unborn child. I deserve to be happy for my family.

We all deserve to be healthy and it just takes us putting our minds to it and being determined to let nothing stop or deter us from reaching those goals. I know that everyday won't be easy, but everyday that the Lord allows, I have a chance to make a difference--we all do.


I'm DONE allowing my life to pass me by!
I'm DONE with living to please everyone but myself!
I'm DONE with my weight!
I'm DONE with being unhappy!
I'm DONE with not loving myself!



My Daily 20 min. Exercise Accountability

Thanks to my new Exercise Police Coach (CAROL54904) and my exercise buddy (FATCATTN) I have agreed to start over again and get in 20 mins of exercise daily and check in with them. Because I want to make exercising a habit and not just another chore, I'm only going to do 20 mins a day and no more for a solid month. Then next month I'll increase my workout time by 5 mins and so on until I build my time up and hopefully by then, exercising will have become a way of my life. So to make myself even more accountable, I'm going to post my daily workouts on my page. So here we go!
