First Time

Well this is my first entry into the blog world. Its taken awhile but I am finally going to do this for me more so than for others. I want to start writing about what's going on in my life but mainly I am wanting to write about my fitness progress. I don't think I want to share my specific goals but lets just say I want to start living a healthier lifestyle. Who doesn't these days??

So my first step was last week I decided to stop eating fast food (as much as possible) and no more sodas. The no fast food has been easier than I thought so far its been 2 weeks which is so good for me because I am not one for cooking but I am learning (I should be a better cook considering I've taken 2 professional cooking classes but oh well) I think that it will be challenging for the first few months but eventually I am hoping it will be a habit that sticks.

Last week was also my first time back at the gym seriously since the Triathlon my family and I completed (minus Dad... next one I am sure we will all be participating) which was in May I think. I have been trying weight training 3 days a week and running 3 days a week as well. If I don't get all the days in I am trying not to beat myself up because then I will just stop going all together. I am praying that these baby steps will get me going on this journey we call life, ha ha super cheesy.
So a few other things going on in my life... First as I continue my work experience at Disney. I have moved to work Graveyard, this was my choice and I have a few reasons for doing so. First, I wanted a set schedule that basically gives me weekends off. Second, I am trying to save money so working graveyards makes it hard to have a life so I am basically forcing myself to not be able to do anything. Another reason is it gives me the opportunity to hopefully join a Bible study/take classes at church. So far its going well and working out the way I want. I hope that my attitude will stay positive and that I can continue to grow and develop as a leader so that I can continue my career. I love the hospitality industry and I am glad that I get to do what I have always wanted to. Although I am looking for a new job somewhere that I will be able to progress a little bit faster than I am able at Disney. So far my job search hasn't led me anywhere but I will continue until I find where God wants me. Till then I am trying to have a better attitude at work and to make the best of the position I am in now.

Okay so I think this will now end my first blog entry. If it seems random and all over the place thats probably because that is how I think. You can ask the people I work with (they have pointed it out to me many times). I know I am not a talented writer and probably not very entertaining to read but thats okay maybe in time I will improve and learn to write focused and amusing posts.
