So I am embarking on my second blog post. Go me!
So my first post was yesterday, and it was a basic intro to me. I mentioned that this blog is a general version of my journey to becoming the person I want to me. I have so many goals, some big and some small that I plan on accomplishing and I think it will be cool to go back in a year and see how far I’ve come.
Some goals I really plan on focusing on:
Lose weight – I need to lose a good portion of weight. When I got pregnant I gained so much weight and it never fell off like they all promised it would. It’s been four years! I want to be able to go out and play with my kid without feeling tired, and set a good example of what healthy is.
Stop smoking – I am ashamed to say, I am a smoker. I hate it, and its getting easier to give up as I get older. I couldn’t quit when I was younger, and but now I can go a good two to four days without cracking, and that’s when I find a friend to hang with that smokes. Again, I want to set a good example for my daughter for what healthy is.
Stop being so scared – I would like to say I have a pretty good head on my shoulders, but when it comes to anxiety, I admit I have an illogical girl brain. Maybe some of the things I have experienced in life, and some of the things I haven’t contributed to some of my anxiety, but my goal is to not get rid of anxiety all together, but to learn to cope with it, accept it as a part of who I am, and especially how to let some things go.
Graduate – Obvious. I want a degree. I want to set up a good future for myself and my daughter. I want to get a job that pays well, so I can afford to give my daughter experiences. I grew up in a house hold knowing at a very young age that money was tight and stressful. I’d rather my daughter be little for as long as she can be and not worry about such heavy stuff. Basically I want to explore and travel with herJ
Be patient – I am a pretty kick back, easy going person most of the time. I am not picky, and I tend to go with the flow, but with my kid my patients can flare from time to time (what parents don’t I know), but she truly is an excellent, very well behaved kid and she tried so hard to do the right thing all the time. I want to be more patient with her.
So with those as a few of my long term goals, I’m ready to change. I can feel the motivation seeking in, and im ready to be the me I see in my mind. I’m so sick of being unhealthy and afraid all the time. I want to feel good in my skin. So my little bear and I kick started this little journey off with a nice long walk after a complete vegetarian meal (I love meat but I don’t cook it).
Also, another goal, to continue this thing called blogging (whoever came up with that word?)
