Coming Up Next…

6 04 2011

So currently I am working on a post about cash flow projections and how they can help you manage your money more efficiently.  I also have a few hair posts in the works as always including a Tangle Teezer review.  Lastly, Since I have gained 26 of the 29 pounds that I lost, I have a new weight loss plan for the rest of 2011.  I’m really excited about rolling it out!  So please stay tuned.  There will be a surprise posting by the end of this day!





Sorry…

2 04 2011

I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  People have been asking me where I have been and I’ve been here, I have just been unmotivated.  That is why the fifth item on my reinvent list is follow through.  I did very well for the first few months then I just sort of fell off.  To be honest, at first I took a break because I was thinking about how I could improve this blog.  There are a few things about my blog that I am really unhappy with but in order to change those things, it will require a bigger commitment from me.  When I realized that, I ran.

One thing that I learned though was this, I really like blogging and youtubing.  I came back because I missed it so much!  I had never felt so official before.  I really felt like I was making strides in taking over control of my life.  With that freedom though comes some responsibilities.  I can’t run just because I’m scared, that was why I even started doing this right?  To get out of that habit!

I’ll be honest, in my experience, it’s this coming back part that is the hardest.  So I feel as though I am facing my biggest challenge to date now.  I’m gonna keep trying though because like I said, this is so much fun even if it is work!

So what have I been up to?  I am almost 2.5 months smoke free!  I am so excited about that.  However, I have gained back 26 of the 29 pounds that I lost last year.  I’m really trying not to be to upset about it because I gained it back because I quit smoking.  It isn’t surprising, but it isn’t acceptable either.

So I have been easing back into working out as well.  I’m back on the stairs at work now and I have been doing short Bodyrock.tv type workouts at home again.  I am thinking that I need to start recording them as more motivation as well.  I can’t quit and I will blackmail myself if need be!

Financially, I have been very complacent as well.  I am still contributing to my 403b but that is about it.  I haven’t really been sticking to my budget and I haven’t saved anything more that the $1,000 emergency fund.  But hey, I haven’t touched that and the rent is paid on time.

Not much to brag about but that is where I am at.  I’m back, and I’m doing everything that I can to stay back!!





Happy Valentine’s Day!

Somebody Loves Me!!

And it makes me feel so special!  Thank you to my very special friend who sent me these beautiful roses.  I certainly didn’t think I would get anything this year let alone these.  I finally found my charger to my cheap camera so I took some pics.  Enjoy!

Halfway Through Rehab…

7 02 2011

Otherwise known as 14 days smoke free!!!  I’m so happy and I am totally feeling like a non-smoker.  I felt so much like a non-smoker this afternoon, that I forgot it was cold outside because I hadn’t been outside all day long!!  I’m really loving it!

Thank you so much to everyone who has encouraged, supported and indulged me these last two weeks.  I honestly didn’t know if I could make it this far in the first place.  Now I am ready to put two more weeks behind me as well instead.  Then they can make a rehab movie about me and instead of Sandra Bullock, I’d get Kerry Washington to play me!  LOL
