Another year is done

Wow 2017 is going to be over in a few hours and I have had some time to think about the last year. I have gotten in better health! Walked not one but two 10ks this year! Went on a great vacation for Sanibel Florida! Planted a wonderful garden. Made better choices for my eating! Kept my blood pressure under control. Had family come and visit at my house for the first time ever! And my business did pretty well this last year as well! I have had a pretty blessed year really!

As 2018 comes rushing in I want to take a few minutes and share what my plans are for the new year.

Business wise I am taking a Master Class and learning more about portraits and getting more candid photos of my clients. Try and get there natural appearance. Even going to work on selling some of my work. Reading the Photographers Market 2018 book and going to get my work out there a bit! Starting January off with promo photos of a client for her new radio show…so exciting!

Still going to work on my health. The gym a few days a week and then some added stretching at home. I plan to walk the Air Force 10k again in 2018 and walk it a bit faster than in 2017. A few 5Ks I’m sure are going to happen as well. Plan to keep taking inches and weight off my body and continue to cook more at home for me and the family.

Going to spend time with friends and family in 2018. Going to try and make a schedule to see people that I have missed this last year. Even if it’s a FaceTime chat. Life is to short not too!

I am taking time for me in 2018. Whether it is a walk, a trip to the gym, some quiet time or what ever I am adding this to my life in 2018. It will help my mind to me healthier as well.

May 2018 be blessed beyond all our imaginations. May we all be healthier than we have ever been and may we be doing what makes us happy!

Bring in 2018! I’m ready!

April 1,2014 changes

As I sit here in the cafe at school I am reminded of all the time spent here trying to figure out geology, psychology, different communication classes. I look at the faces around me and I see future teachers, nurses, business owners and many more opportunities for these bright minds. The best part is that the people here are working on there dreams. Just like me. In 5 short weeks I will hear my name called as I walk across the stage to receive my diploma. Yes it may have taken me longer then the kid in front of me but that’s ok. I did this for me. What am I going to be when I grow up? Who knows….but I have more tools now to work with and my possibilities are endless.
With that said….still only a few sips of pop in the last 4 wks and I’ve started walking a few times a day to get my step count up. So I am doing am over all change. Change your mind change your body. Again doing this all for me!
Last week I dropped 1.75 inches off my body. Haven’t weighed myself yet but the clothes are getting much looser :0) stayed under calorie counts almost all the time :0) go me!
To all of you thinking your too old to change or you can’t do something….stop it because you can.
Have a great day!

BIRTHDAY MONTH

As the stars would have it November is birthday month for me. So far it has been a good month. I have got to celebrate a friends bday with Waffle House, I have gotten to finish up some loose ends and school is going well.
I got published in the school newspaper. That was a great way to start bday month. I met with an academic advisor to find out that I can graduate this spring! OMG I will finally have a college degree! 2 classes and a capstone to go!
We are finally settling into the new place. No stairs! Life is good.
The life change is still working. the scale has shown no change but the inches are falling off. I have lost 7.75 inches off my body so I am calling that a big win! Love my Fitbit. not walking as much s I use to but still the data I get rocks!
I feel like life is falling into place. Its good and scary all at the same time. So I will remember to breath and be thankful for all that I have. Not just now but everyday.
another chapter in my life is coming to a close but I am looking forward to turning that page to see what will happen next.
