LET'S GET IT STARTED! 140 Days To Lose 40 by 40

The New Year is upon us. I accomplished alot in 2010 despite a lot of difficult situations. In accomplishing my financial and educational goals, I slid into bad habits and let my nutrition and fitness goals fall by the wayside. To make matters worst in the last three months of 2010 I lost my sister, my job and miscarried about three weeks ago. I am now 20 pounds heavier.

The New Year is upon us. I accomplished alot in 2010 despite a lot of difficult situations. In accomplishing my financial and educational goals, I slid into bad habits and let my nutrition and fitness goals fall by the wayside. To make matters worst in the last three months of 2010 I lost my sister, my job and miscarried about three weeks ago. I am now 20 pounds heavier.

2011 is here. I am determined to do this for myself as well as to honor my sister and the baby. I turn 40 in July and it would be nice to be at least 40 pounds lighter as a personal gift to myself. I plan to stay positive and push forward no matter what obstacles come my way. i can't let my future job and my school work sidetrack me. Mommy and Wife Time has to include Yolanda Time also. Time to put 2010 in the past and get that job, lose that weight and maybe in a year or two of healthy fit living perhaps have that final baby too!

Llife long Dallas Cowboys fan. Don't mess with my BOYZ!

I'm a girly girl who likes to dress pretty but could always hang with the guys b/c I love sports and manly things too. Hey, I am complicated, lol.

I love African American fiction like Carl Webber then I go to the other extreme and enjoy Charlaine Harris and Dean Koontz

My favorite tv shows are True Blood, Walking Dead, Forensic Shows, Family Guy, Two and a Half Men. I love to be either tense or laughing.

Favorite Movie: Brown Sugar.
Favorite Movie right now: The Hangover, hands down. I heart Bradley Cooper.
I prefer Sci Fi, horror and comedy. Not the chick flick type at all.

I love all types of Music. Look at my Zune you will find Mary J, Blidge, Neo, Usher, Maroon 5, 3 Doors Down, Evanesence, Rolling Stones, Duran Duran and anything in between!
