New Adventure, New Lifestyle.

I recently moved back in with my parents. I am a college graduate with a 17-year old pug, who is my "furry child." After 14 wonderful years, he has been a blessing every day.

I have ambitions to earn my masters degree in English and obtain a teaching degree for a career in Early Childhood education.

I may not have reached my weight, social, education, and career goals yet; but I am always striving to get there, even though it is taking me longer than I think it should. ...

Fitness Minutes: 8,868

My Goals:
There are so many things I want to do in order to turn my life and attitude around.

Getting in shape and losing a few pounds is my main goal. I feel as though all of my other goals in life will be easier to obtain if I feel comfortable in my own skin.

I also wish to be more social and try new things.

A new goal: A friend is getting married in Summer 2013. I am a bridesmaid and need to lose weight for the wedding.

My Program:
I know it will take time to meet my goals. I guess my program can also count as goals I would like to do, but I need to do these goals in order to reach my overall goals.
I plan to:

Fitness:
1) Stay determined.... Continue to work out and stay active on a regular basis.
2) In whole, live a more active lifestyle.
3) Walk at least 10,000 steps a day.
4) Join a fitness class such as Zumba.

Nutrition:
1) Cut out sweets and pick healthy options when I go out to eat with family.
2) Stay away from the unhealthy snacks that my dad and sister like to eat.
3) Drink between 8-10 glasses of water per day.

Social:
4) Go out with my friends more often.
5) Be more open to people, and trust that not everyone is out to hurt me emotionally.

Mental:
1) Gain a positive self image in order to be happier and healthier.

Personal Information:
I am a single college graduate. I went to school in Greeley, Colorado and I recently moved back home to Thornton, Colorado.

Other Information:
Favorite TV shows:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, LOST, NCIS

I love reading. I have too many books to list and I am constantly reading books and filling my library. I'm really into SciFi and Fantasy.

I am a huge Harry Potter fan (aka Potterhead). To me, it's a life style and not an obsession.

I aslo enjoy video games and theatre, both working on shows and seeing them.

Hi!
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I know what you mean, it can be so hard to change our lives when those around can pile on the pressure.

We have to learn to honor our bodies and love them enough to give them the best care.

There once was a woman at a social function who said to me, "You shouldn't be eating that if you are on a diet." I told her, "I'm not on a diet. You must have misunderstood my lifestyle. Let's eat."

I decided that day that no one was ever again going to get away with telling me what, when, or how much I should eat. I'll get downright snarky about it if I'm pushed.

I love my body. I can say that while standing stark naked in front of a mirror. That's something that I'll bet 90% of people in our culture cannot do. If you can do that and mean it, you'll take good care of it -
and you won't allow anyone to interfere with it.

Best wishes to you,
Michael
