Since I got a cases of the realsies yesterday and went a little emo on you all, I thought I would elaborate on what kind of changes this Little Woman is making in regards picking up the broken pieces of me.
1. Quit Smoking
I am/was a smoker and it is something that needs/needed to be changed drastically. I started smoking as a teenager and it is hands down the habit I wish I never picked up. It seriously is an addiction and I didn't really realize how hard it would be to quit. It needs to happen though. Not only is it draining my bank account, but it is also affecting my health and with wanting to start a family, it is something I need to get away from....for good.
2. Get Healthy
So vague right? But I don't want to just say, I want to lose X amount of pounds and I'll be all happy and healthy. Ka-boom. No, I don't want it to work like that. I know that no matter how much weight I lose, I'm a girl, and I will never be happy. What I want to embrace though, is a healthy lifestyle. Sure I intend and could benefit from shedding a couple pounds but I want to become more active and make better eating choices that I can stick with for the long term.
3. Gussy Myself Up
You know that point in a relationship where you become 'comfortable' and start not putting that much effort into your appearance or the way you look? No, you're all still sexy ladies...okay nevermind. But seriously....I became that girl and I need to change. I want to start putting on makeup more, styling my hair in anything other then a bun, and getting a sense of style and owning it. I want to look sexy as a confident boost for myself and want my husband to not be able to keep his hands off of me. Meowww.
4. Manage My Finances Better
It's not like they're bad now, but because of naive and foolish decisions in my late teens/early twenties, I have some issues that need to be addressed and out of my hair once and for all. I want to build up my credit and have a score and report I can be 'proud' of. This can be alternately titled 10 Ways of Being A Grownup. (hmmm....new post perhaps?)
5. Dance More
I used to lurvvvveeeee to dance. I would be dancing up a storm and kicking up the dust whenever the opportunity arose. I want to get into that more. I love it for the exercise but let's call a spade a spade and admit that I enjoy anytime I can shake my ass. In the wise words of Shakira, these hips don't lie. ; )
6. Write More
I'm not the best writer nor do I have the best grammar but this is also a creative outlet, I would love to get back into. I used to write stories and in diaries as a kid (and really a little later than that...) and even won a few writing assignments in my day (hard to believe right?). I might not get all my thoughts and everything out on here but I want to doodle and just let the ink flow from my pen or words from my fingers as I type. It's freeing for me to get some things out, anywhere.
7. Organize My Life
Another general swoop but then let me explain none the less. I want to organize my car, my house, my pictures, my paperwork and pretty much anything underneath the sun that I could organize. I've been feeling disorganized all across the board and it is a irritating feeling to have, so it's time to clean and unclutter house. I blame the move for it, but now it's time to suck it up and start getting through all of these boxes.
8. Have More Sex
OMG! I mentioned S-E-X on the B-L-O-G.
Ring the alarms!!
I know this is a relatively private topic and one that is not discussed much in the blog world but considering that half the blogworld is preggers, I see no reason why any of you should balk at such a subject. (*coughIknowyoubeeziesarebumpingugliestoocough*) But yes, I love sex. I love sex with my husband. Sex makes me happy. Happy equals a better me. Amirite?!? Win win....and I know B is not complaining. ; )
I'm sure there is more but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
