Day one of my 17-week journey to Cinderella’s Castle has officially begun! 5:18PM I took a nice little jog with my puppy, Suki Bear, around the community. 
I was going to go to the gym that steals my $24/month that I NEVER USE but I can’t find my swipe card. I have to figure out where I could have left it.
My birthday is tomorrow and I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone! I made a new year resolution to myself to be healthier and to do a half marathon. I INTENDED on doing the Disney’s Princess Half Marathon in 2012 but Sneha lectured me on how life was too short to plan so far in advance and blah blah blah so she convinced me to do it this year which left me with a little over 4-months. We’ve rounded up 6 of the sweetest girls ever for our team! We need a name now!
I’ve given myself short-term goals. Two 5ks between December - January (REALLY excited to run one with Octa who is REALLY an inspiration) and a 10k beginning of February right before THE BIG ONE!
I just FEEL like this year is going to be MY year. I feel good things coming my way. Really excited to wake up tomorrow!

"Fat, Broke, & Lonely … NO MORE"

I love going to the library and picking up a really great book that really gets me thinking and researching. I decided to pick up a new hobby this weekend (lol), watercolor painting, and while looking for books to help me improve my technique I came across a book that was misfiled. “Fat, Broke, & Lonely NO MORE!” by Victoria Moran. 

I am convinced Ms. Moran was reading all of my tweets, blogs, and facebook status updates and contrived this book for specifically for me and all recent college graduates. She should SERIOUSLY consider dedicating this book to us. I wonder if I Google this book if it even exists.

Anyway, it’s a really interactive book and although she suggests answering these questions on paper, I really can’t. I lost my Sharpie pens and absolutely refuse to write with anything else. I really encourage every one to do these activities with me. They get you thinking and, I just highly recommend this book to any one who is feeling helpless and overwhelmed with life.

Chapter 2: The Emptiness Epidemic
Make a list of every good thing, major and minuscue, that makes you feel full. A sample list might start: seeing my best friend, being with my children, hearing live music, going to dance class, reading everything Jane Austen wrote. When you have your list, pick one item and do it by this time tomorrow.

1. Making themed music play lists.
2. Reading
3. Going to the library
4. Drinking coffee with cinnamon
5. Playing fetch with my puppy
6. Watching YT make-up videos
7. Stumbleupon.com
8. Organizing
9. Cleaning
10. Naps

Chapter 3: To go where other people only dream of, do what they won’t do
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Do the thing you know you cannot do.” That’s today’s action. What seems difficult or even impossible? Making it through an entire day without criticizing one single person, even under your breath or inside your head? Starting your memoir, even though somebody told you that since you’re not famous nobody cares? Splitting from the wrong guy and not even looking for the right one until you’ve had some time to get to know your glorious self? Today stop debating and leap. Am I asking you to perform and extraordinary feat? You bet I am. But once you’vr done it, you can do anything.

I’ve given myself 1-day to really think this over. I know I am my own worst critique and I know I can improve on SO many things but tomorrow I am going not speak a single bad word about ANYone, even if I am promted by others at work AND I WILL not drink a single ounce of soda. I PROMISE.

I think I’m up to chapter 6 in this book but baby steps!

Every one have an excellent week and good luck with whichever “impossible” task you decide to conquer tomorrow! 

It didn’t come out at ALL like I wanted it to but it’s decent. Amateurish. I’m not pretending to be make up guru Samantha C. I wish I had better lighting so details would show better. I will move my desk/lamps this weekend. Just messing around tonight. In better lighting you can see how possessed I look. The teals/blues make my eyes SUPER light brown/red. It’s weird.

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me!

Hope everyone had a fun & safe Halloween!
