Day 44. 2012.

Embarking on this journey of project life has taught me a lot about the kind of person I am, and the kind of person I strive to become each and every day.

Certain aspects of my life have always remained at the top and they are of utmost importance to me... family, faith, friends, education, service.

But there is one certain aspect that seems to come and go, and falters from time to time and that is....

My health.

I used to consider it a huge part of my life and then somewhere amidst changing diapers and screaming babies and a life that seemed to get increasingly busier and busier, I let it fall by the wayside.

I caught myself always thinking that tomorrow would be better, and I would get back on the bandwagon and eat better and exercise more.

Well, those tomorrow's keep passing me by and are blending together to become my life.

And then, these past few weeks, I have had a breakthrough.

I realize that TODAY is the day that I will start living the life I was born to LIVE.

To truly be happy with me, myself, and I once and for all!

I am not focusing so much on weight loss (although it would be NICE to beat my sister at the little 'bet' we have going right now!), but on transforming the way I think, act, and live each and every day.

One day at a time has never meant so much to me as it does now.

Afterall, what doesn't kill you makes you STRONGER, right?


And I realize that the quote I posted above says that I am not trying to impress you...

but I can't help but post this photo...

I am so proud to have made it 4's been a LONG time since I saw that number!
