No Settling In 2012!!!!

I don't know what it is...I mean I do.
I'm an Aquarius, I'm too kind & extremely sweet!
I give chances, but NOT chances after CHANCES.

When I love...yes as cliche as it may sound...I love HARD
Love in a relationship didn't tap me on the shoulder until I was 21...a great age if I say so myself.
Late bloomer? Yeah maybe so...
Unlike most...I date or get into relationships with a guy that I see a potential future with.
Are we always right? Nope!
But I'm not that girl that dates because it's convenient, because I'm lonely, or because I want someone to cater to me. No!

I do love feeling appreciated.

I'm tired of giving something so precious.
My feelings, which comes from the heart.
I feel like round 2 of what was love is on its way once it hits 2012
I refuse to go for a 3rd round.

9/10 when you believe you deserve more, you're right!
It's your conscious or that "little person" speaking to you.
I listen to it majority of the time, but I'm not perfect.
So, if you know you deserve much more than what you're getting now...
That's when change needs start happening.
Nothing can CHANGE without work=action
So yes...as I start to reflect on 2011 & it comes to an end, I'm putting my foot down & taking action NOW. Not later...

Later is when you think or hope things will get better. 
My theory is if it didn't happen or occur the first time around, it wasn't meant to be. Forcing something that isn't there is like trying to fit a circle puzzle piece into a square.
You CAN'T!

In Need of Wrapping Paper: GREAT CAUSE

As some of you may know, I started my mentoring program for girls early this year.

My board members & I have decided to host our very 1st Annual Holiday Clothes Drive in my community this weekend...
We will be giving away women,men, & kids clothing...shoes etc.
Each item will be wrapped with love & care :)

As we are NOT a non profit organization yet, receiving grants is out the question.
If you would like to make a small donation for wrapping paper, please check out the link for more information on our official site:

or you can click the button
Your donation is appreciated!

Thank you....

YES, I'm Still Working On My Fitness...Thanks Jillian

The beginning of November I purchased a DVD that was very popular when I was apart of this fitness group back in January. It's called the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels. Although I haven't been on the message board in 3-4 months, I still keep in touch with a few of the ladies that are/were apart of the group. One chica I follow encouraged me to start the 30 Day Shred, and I've been contemplating for awhile. one reason being is, when the ladies would work out at a set time (from stat-to-state) they would mention how sore they were, and how difficult some of the work outs were. So that made me shine it away. Not a good reason...I know.

I said what the heck let me get it. I'm not able to hit the gym like I want to (4-5 days a week). I must say this was a great idea/purchase. I thanked her for having my back & encouraging to go ahead & purchase this DVD.  It has three different levels of work outs. They're approx. 2-25 minutes each. You need weights & a mat (if you choose). I don't use a mat, nor weights. I use water bottles, or you can use canned goods.

I'll also be starting another work out DVD after I'm done with the 30 Day Shred. I'm on Day 9. I had stopped working out the week of Thanksgiving because I was doing a lot of running around & working (retail) & I didn't want to be sore & annoyed as I'm trying to get work done. But other than that, I haven't missed any days. But trust me, there are days where I'm like "I'm too tired & sleepy", or "I'll just skip this day"...My support system is strong & I thank them for that :)

Question: What are you doing to stay in shape? Don't allow the holidays to be your crutches on why you're not doing what's right for you.
