8 MONTHS TO GO- oy!
Friday, March 01, 2013
Ok so I'm on a mission- Thinner for 30. I really haven't been that serious about it. I'm down 10 lbs overall but I can't seem to get to that 12lbs mark where I get to 175lbs. the lowest I've gotten to is 177 then I keep fluctuationg between that and maybe 181. Sigh. But I ain't giving up.
Need to solve my sleep problems before anything else. Then I'll be able to do the AM workouts. Then I'll really see change. I printed a calendar so that I can put an X for every day I work out- a visual. Did that Feb & Mar 2012 and I did my best, over 1000 fitness minutes in March 2012, I wanna get back there. And that was when I realized something was wrong as I was working out a lot yet not losing any weight or inches- went to the doc got tested and found out I had PCOS. Although I'm about working smarter not harder- straight from my Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred DVD. Been doing that, but not as consistently as I'd like and I wanna add 30 mins more cardio to that.
One day, one step at a time.
O forgot what I had set out to do long ago, any time I blogged I had to say 3 things I'm grateful for:
1. My job. With some recent changes in the country's macroeconomic environment, some people at my old job lost their jobs. This current one is a lot more stressful but I'm happy to have a job.
2. My babies- Coco and Chucky. My 2 dogs. Adopted Chucky in late December and we've become a lot closer. He had issues man.
3. My love for art and fashion. I call myself a fashionista and a frugalista. With my new job I don't have to wear uniforms so I get to express myself. It's been 4 months and I haven't repeated an outfit yet. I don't have a ton load of clothes but I mix and match and accessorize. My dream is to be a buyer. Right now I'm a Treasury Manager at a leading investment house in my country . I love art and fashion and that's what I'm passionate about. I've been asked if I want to further my qualifications and I don't see myself doing a MBA or CFA. My heart isn't in it. I have kept my love for art alive through my jewellery & cupcakes (www.ronzjewellery.weebly.com & www.heybabycakesja.weebly.com)
. I would love to do these things full time but would have to sell a truck load of jewellery and cupcakes to make up for my current salary. Sigh. I'm scared to have to start over at and after 30 as I may have to start at the bottom but my passion has always been art and fashion is a great outlet for that.
