Inspirational Board

I am feeling very crafty lately. 


 Today, I made an inspirational board. Since I was in a funk lately, I did research and found this project to boost confidence and motivation. I found wonderful quotes and words that I felt described me. Also, I am hold a sloth and that was the happiest I ever was.

Joined Weight Watchers

 I have always been apart of Weight Watchers in a way. I used to borrow my Mom’s books and tools. In the old days before smart phones; I would actually write things done. Now with the app, things are easier. However, the app wasn’t good enough anymore. I was tired of doing this alone.

 My Mom always helped me. However, I feel she is in a different position in her weight loss journey. Also, she goes to meetings every week even after life time. I on the other hand, would do it all at home. Since 2015, I slacked off. I stopped tracking. I ignored things I was consuming. I was drinking a lot of alcohol and stress eating. 

Then 2016 hit me hard. I had major breakups, stress with work, a family health issue and I learned I suffered from anxiety. I was off the wagon hard core. I stopped going to the gym, eating healthy and let my mind race with issues that were not in my control. What I wasn’t doing was focusing on the issues that were important. 

Myself.


 I don’t feel like sharing my current weight at the moment. However, I am glad I started now. I hope to get motivation from others and maybe motivate others again.

 We are human. I am human. Everything is not my fault. The only thing I can control is myself.

This is the year about me.

Wish me luck. =)

Things I Need to do More in 2017

 I got the motivation to leave my house and work out. It made me feel a little better and motivated me. I started to have a different mind set and I am pissed. I am not sad anymore; I am angry. I am a great person and I am tired of being walked over and pushed aside. I am tired of negativity and I am tired of feeling sorry for myself. This ends now. I only care about one person and that is me. I have built a big strong wall and it is going to take an army to knock it down. It is going to take the secret password to ever let you inside.

 Besides this..I need to be positive. It is negative and rather dramatic. However, I have ideas of being positive. 

1.) Workout more. I plan to go to spring every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning. I also have my nights back and I could take a yoga or kick boxing class.

2.) Eat healthier. I have been eating out too much and buying a lot of candy. The week before Christmas I ate three bags of candy in three days. No more of this.

3.) Stop drinking. I am done drinking. I am taking a stand and becoming sober for 2017. Drinking has ruined my brain. I am not even going to drink in moderation. For one year I am going to stop drinking and see how it changes my life.

4.) See more Broadway shows. I love Broadway and I need to go more.

5.) See more drag shows. I love watching drag shows and I love watching the confidence that they show off.

6.) Do more for charity. I want to do something for Autism Speaks this year.

7.) Go on more adventures with my friends. Adventures always go well and I always feel amazing after one.

8.) Do things on my own. Go to the movies, go out to eat, go to craft fairs and whatever. I can take my time and do what  I want to do

9.) Learn to cook. This will make my Mom happy.

10.) Work hard at my job and try to get a promotion or start teaching at a University.

 New year, new me and I don’t need anyone to tell me what to do. I will not worry what people say about me. I will say no and no apologize for it. I am stronger then people see me. I will prove everyone wrong.

Motivation 

It is hard to be motivated today. My body aches and I feel awful. My head hurts And concentrating is low. I feel very alone right now. I have to get used to be okay with being alone. This is normal. Cut negative people who make me feel terrible. Cut out the stress and work on myself. Alone.

 I am a great person. I just have to find her again.
