February 7, 2016


My job has ended. It was time. It has been time to leave for a while now but they gave me the extra push to Peace the F out. It's time for the next adventure. I'm motivated and I'm pumped. I needed a kick in the ass (and a rather large one at that) to get me moving in a new direction. A direction towards change. I'm not going to lie or sugar coat, nope not me- this was no rainbows and unicorns type of thing.

The last couple weeks I was feeling low. There was some major self-talk happening on a daily basis. I still remind myself to get it together. It's hard losing your job. It's a blow to the ole' confidence for sure. That being said I AM moving forward so let's talk new beginnings.

Calendar, planner, globe and pen

I'm ready to take on 2016. Let's start with a few things I want/need to do to get this change going:

  • Taking on the world will take a fierce woman: one who is confident and healthy. That being said, exercise and healthy eating are on top of this list. I started Weight Watchers and the hubs and I are doing Insanity. It. Is. INSANE. It is only night 7.
  • Take steps towards making this move a reality. What do I need to do to make our goal a reality? More on that in future posts.
  • Have me time. I know for a fact that I am not meant to be a stay at home mom. Nothing against those that are AT ALL. I've done it and I thought I was going to lose my mind. Literally. I just wanted to scream. Anywho, in order to make my family and me happier I need to include some weekly me time in the schedule.
    • Over the years I've gotten a few gift cards (Red Door and some random Spa near me) and I'm going to use them. NOW.
    • The hubs got me guitar lessons for one month as a Christmas gift. On lesson 3. My goal is to practice 10 minutes at least a few days a week.
    • Lastly, my mom got me a book titled The Secret. I need it in my life. It's all about the law of attraction. If you think positive thoughts that is what you will attract and the opposite applies (negative thoughts, negative things).
Just a few thoughts to make the rest of 2016 my BEETCH. Big things are a comin' so stay tuned for more on how we are going to make this move a reality. We will be keeping you posted every step of the way.
