2009... goals and gratitudes

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

so here we are, half way through January 2009 as of tomorrow! craziness! i'm feeling really good... about a lot of things. i just turned 25 on january 4th, and i'm okay with it. lol. honestly, i was a little upset about turning 25 as i was approaching it... but as it came closer, i looked at old pictures of myself, and i thought, wow... i get better looking with age! :) not to mention, wiser!!! i think about all that i've learned and experienced so far in my 25 years. i feel fortunate, strong, and excited for the future. i feel like this year is going to be a really good year. i'm 25, it's 2009, and it's my time to shine! lol. but seriously, i have cleaned my life of some toxis people. i have decided to apply the same discipline that i apply to nutrition and exercise, to my finances, so i can move out of my parents house, ASAP. i have my health, my family, some quality friends, and i have my mind and body to help me reach for the stars! i feel SO thankful.

i had written before christmas that i started to eat clean. i fell off of that after the second week because the holidays hit. i was still eating healthy, with a treat here and there, but i wasn't eating clean. well, i'm back on clean eating. started that a week ago, and i'm feeling good. i want to see what lifting heavier weights, increasing the intensity of my cardio, and clean eating can do to my body. the way i see it is that summer is technically 5 months away. it's going to be here before we know it. i mean, c'mon, we're already half way thru january! time's flying. gotta make every minute count. i'm pretty pumped. i think i can put on some serious muscle and really tighten up before summer, and i can't wait to see the results! plenty of time to do it, just requires dedication and discipline. hard work & attitude. i've got this. but yea, sometimes it seems like people try to sabotage my efforts. LOL. friends and family, mannn. my mom this week alone has baked these super chocolate chunk cookies AND cinnamon buns with icing on top (a weakness of mine)... and i didn't touch either one... even tho i'm pms'ing. lol. however, i did buy a dove dark chocolate bar, and i'll snap off a lil piece if i feel tempted to eat a treat. it helps keep me on track. ya know, i NEVER feel guilty about eating dark chocolate. but yea, so far, i'm feeling very strong and very focused and i'm really thankful to be healthy and living my life. i hope all of you are as excited as i am!!! let's rock the rest of january, and make 2009 the best year of our lives!

much love,

    I am trying to stay on the clean eating bus too! It's very hard, but I see results the next day, it's crazy!
    You are such an inspiration to me! I am turning 25 in June and have lost only 12 lbs in the 4 mos on SP, but feel a ton better! You look great! Keep up the great work!
