Becoming a more awesome version of me

Living in the twin cities, MN.....one of the healthiest places in the US! I love it here; the culture, the people, and the food....lots of new experiences!

I'm trying to be serious about changing my life, so I'm giving blogging a try. Feel free to follow along and leave comments.

A little bit about my personality:

~ I love meeting new people

~ While I don't like conflict, if I really think you're wrong, I'll tell you.

I'm trying to be serious about changing my life, so I'm giving blogging a try. Feel free to follow along and leave comments.

A little bit about my personality:

~ I love meeting new people

~ While I don't like conflict, if I really think you're wrong, I'll tell you.

~ I am really proud that I've stuck with Art History through undergrad, and now graduate school. It's not a useless major; I know I am a more sophisticated, well-versed, more intelligent individual for it. Don't tell me there's no good use for Art History.

~ Change is a REALLY good thing. Whether good or bad at the time, I've grown so much over the past decade that I can't help think it's all good.

~ I'm a really good cook ;-)

~ I discover something completely new about myself at least once every couple months. A few months ago, I discovered that I don't like lettuce. Who knew?

And as for weight loss.....

~ Yes, a big part of why I'm losing so much weight is because I want to wear a bikini next summer. So what if I'm looking at cultural expectations? I know that I will be skinny enough at about 170 lbs.....no 125lbs. for me!

~ I've already lost 50 lbs. on Weight Watchers, so I know I can do it. Pushing forward!

~ I'm working on eating less processed foods....I've started my own little container garden that I'm super proud of :-)

It's so refreshing to have a clear picture of what you want in life; for now AND for later. The best part of the journey is getting there, and that's what I'm doing!!

I've been dating the sweetest guy for almost 7 years now. He moved with me to Minnesota when I was accepted to graduate school, and supports all my exercising and healthy eating habits.

I'm a current Art History Master's student. I love all periods and movements of art, and I am having a hard time picking one artist or work to research for a Master's thesis

I haven't found the chat program yet ;) Actually this would be a great idea! Most of the time when I am online no one else is - so I had to seize the chance ;)
