Realization and questions

The night before last I came to a realization. To share this realization I'm going to have to talk a little bit more about my past.

So I graduated with my Bachelors degree in May and since then I've gained all my weight back. I seem to have completely thrown out all of my hard work. I don't exercise, I am not eating right and I've actually gotten to the point of not even eating meals. I'm eating chocolate and candy all the time.

And just out of the blue I came to the realization that I'm not respecting my body and that in turn has brought me to realize that in not respecting my body I have no respect for myself. Me and my body. We are one and I'm totally abusing my body by not exercising or eating healthy.

I then tortured my coworker (Sorry Adam!) with talking to him about it. Mind you, I am a female, I started out on one subject and then jumped around. And I was talking to a male. . I guess it wasn't such a good idea but Adam was awesome and listened. And provided support. For that I thank you Adam.

From our conversation and my realization, I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to start respecting my body and myself again. I'm going to work through a lot and I'm going to hopefully post on here instead of torturing my coworkers.

The only real question that I've been asking myself is, where do I start? Should I start with my body or with myself?

Today I started with my body. I've had oatmeal for breakfast and an orange for a snack. I am now going to have lunch which will consist of a salad with leftover turkey. I'm going to take small steps and hopefully work my way through this.

Thanks for reading/listening to this. I'm planning on posting more on here and hope to have more support from friends.

Okay. So I decided to enter in a contest to try and win a Kindle. I didn't find out about it until it was almost too late but when I saw that picture I couldn't pass it up.

The details: Kristie Cook gave us the one picture and then we had to do something to it. The color picture is the one given. The drawing with the color picture in the picture was my first attempt and after asking my friends their input, the very first and second drawing is my FINAL product (I couldn't really figure out how to turn it). It would have been fun to do something on photoshop too but I don't have that program.

The first saying that popped into my head and I loved, was 'WANTED: A MAN TO CALL MY OWN' and the last saying that I decided it probably went with the book better, was 'WANTED! Name: Tristan Knight Last Seen: in Promise by Kristie Cook', with a cowboy drawing. When I saw the picture, a cowboy was the first thing that popped into my head (I've heard of them called a devil).

This was fun and I will have to get back into drawing hands and faces (which I stink at!). I hope that other authors or even Kristie Cook does this sort of contest again because it was fun to see peoples interpretations.

What do you guys think? Still terrible?

So it's a new year and I just got around to looking back at this

I mean how often does someone checks people's blogs? When does one have time to post on there blog and how often?

Ok. so last year was a year full of a lot of firsts. This year has just begun and where it will take me will be for anyone to figure out as it goes. Currently I'm trying to make it through 5 classes this semester so that I can graduate with my bachelor's degree by May. I can do it, I just know that I can.

So the first movie that I saw in the movie theatre this year turned out to be Avatar. I, personally, loved it and can't wait for it to come out in DVD. I'm currently watching Julie and Julia with my mom and it's cute.

I seemed to have strayed off of topic. Well, that's all for now, wont take up anyone's time for any reason. I'm off to work on my homework. I bid everyone a good weekend.
