As this year is winding down, and coming into a new year. I was sitting back and reflecting on the things I love the most...and how grateful I am for having family, friends, and love ones in my life....Now the things that I want to reflect on not for this upcoming year, but just every day of my life is POSITIVITY...I can't tolerate NEGATIVITY anymore, it brings down the morale in everything that you do, so I challenge everyone to think positive in all situations that you encounter, no matter how bad it may seem, and maybe it will help you to progress a little more throughout your day...

So as everyone knows I’m a new aerobic instructor, and lately I have been thinking about how I look determines how my class will feel. So I’ve been trying to figure out what type of diet to get on or better yet what kinds of things can I take out of my normal eating habits to increase my weight loss. So I’ve decided that I must get rid of the bad chocolate, I saw where eating dark chocolate was better for you, “Dark chocolate is good for your heart. A small bar of it every day can help keep your heart and cardiovascular system running well. Two heart health benefits of dark chocolate are lower blood pressure, lower your cholestorol” so who knew that it was actually good for you, next I have to reduce how much bread I eat (because I am a bread lover), at least reduce it down to 100% wheat bread, and only have a limit of how much I am going to eat. I am not going to be someone who is going to talk about “This is my New Year’s resolution” because that’s not what I want to start doing, putting a limit on this new and upcoming year, but what I am going to do is take better care of myself and live a healthier, active life.
So I was going thru my email and came across this article about “The Hidden Dangers of Your Excess Abdominal Fat - It's More Serious Than a Vanity Issue! “ By Mike Geary, Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer the article tells you how the two different types of fat in your stomach are deadly, okay first of all I didn’t even know there was 2 types, so know I got to worry about an extra layer, I thought fat was fat, but was I wrong. I will include the article below so that everyone can get some important information pertaining to that good ole belly fat.
[There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.
The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.
Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases] (Geary)

Well we moved in October into an apartment complex to save some money to purchase a house, and the rent is decent so we have enjoyed this new place thus far until........Well in November after being here for only a month, i left the house to go pick up my computer that was being fixed. So i met the guy and called my husband to let him know i was on my way back home, so as i'm turning the corner into the complex i am coming up to the park next to our van, and i see the lights on in the van, so i'm assuming since i just called my husband that it is him in the car, so i blow the horn, and low and behold a teenager sits up in the driver's seat, i could have crapped my pants, to be honest i was in SHOCK, and i was saying to myself i know this child is not in my car....So my husband comes to the door but i don't say anything b/c now and days you have to be careful b/c although he was is my car doesn't mean he didn't have a gun...so he gets out the car as if he was getting out his own car, and that just did it for me....i call 911 and i don't know where he walked to so fast, but he was gone! But i was PISSED off b/c the nerve of someone to just walk by and get in the car....So my husband is pissed b/c he said he didn't think he locked the doors, but regardless we usually lock them before we go to bed....So needless to say the boy wasn't caught but i was pissed for like a couple of weeks.....Now this is the part that did it for me, December 17 my husband and i don't officially go to bed until about 2am that morning and about 6ish our doorbell is ringing, so we both jump up, i look out the window, eyes blurry from just getting up, and it looked like people outside, so i tell him don't go open that door, i don't know if that's someone trying to break in or what. So they ring the doorbell again, now my heart is racing b/c i don't know what is about to happen...and it turns out to be our neighbor and he goes on to tell my husband "i hate to wake you up, but they broke the windows out your car, my car, the elderly ladies car, the hispanic man's car" so my husband is furious!!!! as well as i am! I'm like what are you kidding me!!! IDIOTS!!! So you go around vandalizing other people's property? for what and then you didn't take anything you just bust out windows, really!!!! So that cost me $182.11 to be exact..b/c i had to pay my deductable first!!! Now i'm so pissed that i can even be pissed anymore, i was just OVER IT, i was like Lord, im going to pray for these idiots that did this, and i truly hope they get caught....Now we all get our windows fix accept for two of the neighbors, so i'm feeling bad for them b/c apparently they can't afford it, or they don't have insurance....WHY MUST PEOPLE DO SUCH IGNORANT THINGS.....you come in and destroy other people's property and you don't even stick around to say i'm sorry i don't know why i did it, or something...YOU PUNKS!!! That is truly how i feel.....just wanting to vent about this thing and get it off my chest...I JUST HATE IGNORANCE!!!!

So i am a true reality tv fan, not quite sure why, but i am....i guess it's because of the drama, the need to know what kinda of crap people in the hollywood world actually go through. Well, as i was watching Basketball wives, i realized that this show is just like the real drama in everyday life, but just a little over the top. This show is hilarious because it's like watching high school girls have a click, and say oh because you talked about me, then everyone is against you, and the funny thing is these grown women actually side with one another, crazy. I have girlfriends that i have been friends with for about 15+ years, and if one is mad with the other, it actually doesn't even last that long, but none of us would side with the other and go against each other for the sake of friendship, if you are true friends then it doesn't matter, two people should be able to decide if they are not talking to each other without having everyone else choose a side. Real friendship aren't based on that to me, it's based on the love, enjoyment, and being around eachother that helps you realize why you are friends in the first place. So this is only for TV these friendships can't be real, especially if you drop someone b/c of someone else, i guess my question is didn't you guys have real friends before these BBWIVES, is there some rule that says if you marry a bb player or football player then you have to be part of a clique'...oh well story of their lives...

So last week i started my first Aerobic class, and when i started i was so nervous...why because i was the TEACHER!!!! I took this instructors class in July 2010, passed the class and all, then in august, september, and october i just got so lazy and decided i don't think i want to do this. That's right my whole $199 gone down the drain. But low and behold they were not willing to give up on me, so they "volunteered" me for the position because i stayed so close to the recreation center. So i gave in, so i'm saying to myself "durn now i got to pull out these instructor tapes and start learning these routines" uggghhh....But being lazy taught me one thing, to never wait until 2 days before the class to learn the routines, oh my gosh....so i am doing the 3 out of 15 songs, and i'm so nervous that i am messing up but not alot, and the class is helping me remember the steps, now if that ain't embarrasing....So i decided after class that i would practice that whole week until the following Thursday, and when this past Thursday came, i was on it, and i had my stuff down pack....BooYAH!!!!

While attending Church today and the topic was Breaking Bad Habits, as i sat around and watched everyone, since we are on the topic of habits, why does it seem that people can only get excited when the piano is playing, the drummer is drumming, and their is always that one who will dash across the room. Is that the start of the spirit moving? Now i am not being judgmental by any means just stating my observations and opinions, but i am just wondering. I believe in God 100% but i'm starting to question some of the things people do. I'm just wondering are there things that we do sometimes to impress other people to prove our salvation or because the pastor said if you don't jump up and move your not saved....I just want to believe that God is always LOVE, PATIENT, FORGIVING, and UNDERSTANDING...and he loves me whether or not i jump up and down and my heart continues to love him, i treat everyone right, that includes those that i don't know, and if i always want to help someone in need that i am impressing him in some small way. Because i am overwhelmed with the request for Money, Money and More Money, for pastors anniversary, pastor and first lady birthday, for pastor thanksgiving, church anniversary, pastor & first lady anniversary, and for PASTOR XMAS blessing, the list get's longer and longer every time, i always believed in helping people no matter who they were (that's what my mama taught me).....i have yet to hear let's take up money for the sick and shut in, never for the homeless guy on the corner, never for a food drive, coat drive, or for a family who may need some bills paid, those to me seem like legitamate reasons to want to give, give and keep giving...But yeah i know the bills got to be paid in the church too, but the above reason don't help the bills get paid...I'm just venting a lil today b/c i understand to a certain degree of why some stop attending church....Again....these are just my thoughts and opinions folks of what i see at the churches i have been attending!

Yes we all get frustrated, it happens! One thing i can remember my mom saying..."Being frustrated doesn't change the circumstances, so you need to choose what you are going to do to make your situation better or stop COMPLAINING!!!! Well while at work last night i was working with a coworker and she was so frustrated with how everything in her life was going, that when she came to work she brought all that frustration with her, and one thing i know is when people come to work with attitudes, i stay out of their way because i don't want that spirit on me (lol i gotta love my momma, lord bless her in heaven). So she just keeps going on and on about how this job is getting on her nerves, the people, and so on and so forth. Now mind you i'm not complaining, because if anyone is a Respiratory Therapist, they know the frustrations that come with this job. So i'm listening to her complaints but as she is talking i am praying for her and asking God to tell me the right things to say, anyway she has gotten so frustrated that she decides she is quiting, and i look at her and watch her as she fills out applications, and i still don't say anything, so after she keeps venting for about 2 hours then i wait till later, and talk to her, and i go on to tell her, that "my mama always said" (lol) but it's true...That this life we have is not our own, so the job that you have been blessed with was just that a BLESSING, although you have bills as we all do, isnt it good to know that you have a means for paying them. Start praying and asking God to open up doors to other opportunities and stop complaining about this job, do you know how many people are waiting for someone like you to quit, so they can fill that spot, and be content. Sometimes in the mist of our frustration we make crazy choices, and then when you have calmed down and realize it's not as serious as you were making it out to be, then you have done something so stupid and crazy, that then you are trying to figure it all out! So again, when you are frustrated learn to go to a quiet place, or deal with it in your own way, but don't push it on others, we all have frustrations, but they don't last always, it's just like a temporary fix that you got to get, and once you've gotten it, and yelled about it, it's over....Don't Let Frustrations cause you to make a WRONG CHOICE!!!
