Transitioning Twenties: The half way mark

I’ve been feeling old for a while now, but in fact I’ll only reach my mid twenties at the end of the week. In this time I’ve deemed this 10-year span as the transitioning years. That seems to be my state of my mind these days with moving from college, semi-adulthood to college graduation and full on adulthood. Then you’re on to finding a good job and being a good citizen while figuring out exactly who you are.

What will I do for my birthday? Yesterday I didn’t know. Today I decided that I’ll go home and visit my parents, visit a good friend and hang out with my younger cousin who also had a birthday this week.

To celebrate this year I’m going to embrace my Louisiana culture and go to the Krewe of Centaur Parade XXII Mardi Gras parade, go have fun and drink wine at Painting with a Twist where I’ll be painting a Mardi Gras mask on a canvas and engage in Super Bowl XLVII activities.

Overall, it looks like my weekend voyage is going to be full fun, which I’ll enjoy immensely;  then I’ll go back to worrying and mapping out the rest of my transitioning twenties.

So, let the fun commence!


Happy New Year!

2013Happy New Year folks!

Twenty-twelve is old news and now 2013 is here and staking a claim. The New Year has also stirred up and brought along new resolutions and self proclamations of being better. How many of us can say we made a resolution of self transformation and stuck with it to the year’s end? Most of us are burned out or have disregarded our new paths by February or March.

I on the other hand, can truly say that I stuck with my 2012 self transformation, a feat that I’m so proud to say. I promised myself that I would lose weight and become healthier and learn to stress less. I’m pleased to report that I did in fact lose weight, a whopping 21 pounds, and did eliminate stress!

It all jump started when my good friend Casey and I started the 17 Day Diet and became workout buddies. And the rest  is history.

Twenty thirteen is here and I’m going to hit the half mark of my twenties at the end of this month. What is my 2013 self proclamation, you ask?

It’s simple.

I’m going to continue on my weight loss journey, sans my awesome workout buddy who moved away. We’ll keep each other motivated in spirit and communication. I feel great and want to continue with what I started last year.

Stay positive, motivated and hungry for success and you’ll definitely tackle your resolution right into 2014!
