Last Day of 2009

I'm taking some time to myself... I'm relaxing, thinking over the things I want to be different about 2010. I don't want to just make resolutions... every year I make resolutions and somehow I fall off the band wagon of getting them done.

I am however, making some progress in my life. 2010 is going to be a new year, and a good one at that... God willing! I'm ready to put my best foot forward. Time for a new me!! Well, Not so much a new me, because I do like me... but preferably an improved me :)

I just wanted to wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Exciting New Year!!!

Back to Basics

Back to the Basics is where I'm heading! 2010 is vastly coming upon us, and it's time to get my ducks in a row. I have one semester left of my Bachelor's degree, and Graduation is May 8th, 2010. I want to lose some weight by then... so starting Monday... it's a new game for me! I'm starting small and very basic.

*Restrict Calories
*Eat Healthier
*Drink more water
*Cardio 5-6 days a week.

I'm out of work because I ran into some troubles with the screws and plates in my right ankle, so there is no reason for me not to get my cardio in. I've become very concerned with my health the last few weeks.

My grandfather on my mothers side has diabetes and had heart surgery this past August... My grandfather on my fathers side also had diabete's and had numerous heart surgeries. He recently went in for his last surgery Monday December 14th, and Passed away December 17th, due to complications. His organs eventually gave out and my poor father had to make the decision to take him off life support. There's many things I need to take into consideration health wise, and at 24 years old... It's time for me to get to work with it. I need to make sure that I take care of myself to the best of my ability due to all the health complications in my family.

I'm also going to try to get back into journaling here. It helps. With that being said, this will conclude my first entry of hopefully many more to come!

Hope all is well with everyone and MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!
