It begins.

23 Jul

The first post.  What does one say?  I suppose by now there are some cliches when it comes to starting a blog (Welcome to my first blog post!  How do I begin? I am so happy you are reading this..blah, blah).   Frankly, writing this silly blurb is probably a cliche itself. Anyway, why I am here…

I am a little over a month into the grand ‘ol age of 34.  And by the time I turn 35 I really would like to address some of the “issues” that I have.   Thankfully, I am truly a blessed individual (although I tend to forget this at time).  I am not overcoming a disease (although I swear 33 was the year that wrinkles set into my face), my family is healthy (beyond our normal craziness), my husband and I are employed, and I don’t think we will be facing foreclosure in the near future – I am, admittedly, doing better than most. So, what are my issues?  Why do I need to post?  Well, I am simply doing this to improve myself – it is as simple and as complicated as that.   This will, hopefully, make me more accountable and provide me with a virtual scrapbook of this yearlong journey.  While this will blog will tend to focus on me attempting to lose weight/get fit/train – this is part of the bigger picture. Some of my improvements are small, whereas others are big.  In the end, I simply want to like myself more.

Things I need to work on.

Health:  Lose 45 pounds (just had a baby and graduate school packed on the pounds for me) ; Train for a full Triathlon (November) ; Train for a half marathon (May/June); Stop eating processed food; Stop drinking Diet Coke; Stop eating after 8PM

Consistency (This is perhaps one of the biggest issue I have): Wake-up at 6:30AM; Make bed every day (yes mock me openly), Floss (I know…), wash face, Do Laundry every other day, Write every day, work out 6 days a week, clean kitchen when I go to bed, pick up continuously.

Bad Habits/Special Projects:  Stop reading gossip websites, limit reading news websites to twice a day, learn Spanish, keep up with this blog, sort through/organize pictures, stop complaining (about my job, people, house, etc.).

In a nutshell, I will primarily talk about these thing and other weird and wacky things that come my way.  I will not however discuss my job, specifics about relatives (children are exempt from this rule), friends or my identity.

So… let it begin.
