New Year, New Blog, New Me

Happy New Year Everyone!! I'm pumped for 2012 because it's the year of the dragon, which is the same Chinese sign for the year I was born! It's going to be great, I can feel it in my bones :)

Over the past few weeks I've really been analyzing my life. Wow that sounds like a mid-life crisis statement! What I mean is I need to start making myself happy and putting myself first. I no longer want to hide when I'm hurt, put others feelings before mine,  and have my life revolve around others. I don't mean to sound selfish but I want this year to be about me and self-discovery.

To start this journey and have it be somewhat directed, I have set up a few goals for myself. I'm not sharing all of them on here but here is a glimpse. (In no particular order)

1) I want this blog to be more. I'm going to direct it towards fitness and losing weight but will share some fun stories from teaching, and daily life things.

2) I want to be healthier. Spiritually, mentally, and physically. To help me do this I have signed up for GymPact and Pure Barre Classes.

3) I need to financially grow up. I need to track my expenses, start to pay off loans, and GET A JOB at the end of school year (I'm currently student teaching).

4) I want to reward myself more. Some friends and I have made a deal where we put away the amount of money that we loose in pounds every week. So loose 5 lbs=$5 in a jar. This money will be used ONLY for a reward :)

5) Lastly but most importantly I want to be HAPPY!!

I hope you all will keep reading and maybe I'll get some more followers ;)


1) What is your Chinese sign? Do you think it fits you?
     * Mine is the dragon and it totally fits me :)

2) Do you have any goals/resolutions for this coming year?
