Keeping Positive

Today for me i wouldn’t say was a bad day, but it felt like a fairly negative energy kind of day, which by the time i was going home made me feel mopey and rather sad i suppose is how i’d put it. 

Its not easy to think positively when you’re feeling down….especially for me.  But i just got to thinking about all the good things going on in my life; the things that make all the stress and frustration and negativity go away…at least for a little while.

But all in all, it was thinking about the more positive things in my life that made me snap out of my mopey mood, and feel better about where i am, how i’m doing, and where i am going.

If you’re ever feeling down yourself, just take some slow deep breaths, and remind yourself why you are here, where you want to be, and just keep telling yourself to be and think positively.

Positive thinking will lead to a positive life. 🙂

Update on workouts:

No workout for me today….rest day #2.  I’m thinking perhaps tomorrow i’ll go in to the gym, but honestly, i think i’ll rest up the rest of this work week and wait until Saturday morning for my next workout with my personal trainer.



So here i am

Here i am, blogging again. But this time around, much older and wiser 😉 Eh, we’ll see about that, haha.
So i’m starting this blog sortof as a way to ‘talk’ thru whats going on in my life at any given moment. As i’m sure many of you who may be (hopefully) reading this know, life is always full of surprises, good and bad. Its what makes life interesting, and what makes it a bit stressful at times too.

The main thing that, going in to this venture, i will probably write about is beginning my journey in loosing weight.  I’ve been overweight since about 6th grade, and as the years go by, the numbers keep climbing.  So i decided to do something about it.  Yesterday i joined a gym.   And yes, i know, just because i joined a gym doesnt mean instant success loosing weight.  Its means a hell of a lot of hard work and dedication.

And that is where this blog comes in.

I feel that this time around, change it up – i’m going to record my weight loss journey via blog.  Maybe at the very least it will be a good place for me to vent and get stress off my shoulders, etc.  Plus, it didnt help that last weekend my boyfriend and i watched the movie, Julie & Julia, which really got the gears turning on this idea.

Other than my weight loss journey, i’ll probably write a bit about my everyday life, weekend adventures, food we’re cooking (we LOVE BBQ), and any other tidbits that i feel like posting 😉

I hope you enjoyed my first post here, and i hope you continue to follow my blog, and that you tell your friends and family about it.  🙂
