Birthdays Bring Focus

I took this past week off to celebrate my 34th birthday and to just get away from the J.O.B..  I was really blessed to spend time with my friends and family.  However, today I wanted to share a few things with you that I will be focusing on before I turn 35.

Birthdays Bring Focus

In no particular order….

  • HEALTH & FITNESS – Last year in August, I eliminated  my bad habit of drinking Dr Pepper (sometimes 2 per day), WHOOP!  That was a baby step toward a better diet but I huge step for me. This year I would like to adopt better eating habits. This year, I would like to focus on eliminating fast food eating & drinking sodas all together!
  • I need a transformation due to a switch in birth control earlier this year. I love the pills but I don’t appreciate the extra weight.  Therefore, I will be switching medication.  That also means I will have to challenge my body a bit differently to get my physique back to my comfort zone. My plan is to incorporate some RPM classes & increase my weights in BODYPUMP!


  • PERSONAL – I have a really bad habit or characteristic of wearing my expressions on my face.  I can’t or don’t hide my emotions very well.  The problem with this is that I’m extremely private so if I’m having a bad day, I’m not fond of people asking me questions. I have also been accused of looking mean all the time.  So this year, I want to focus on smiling in spite of whatever is going on and smiling more in general.


  • COMMUNITY – I want to extend my book club to obtain an outreach arm in the community. Hopefully we can operate a 3rd grade book club for girls if I can get dedication from members.  I am also strongly thinking of visiting other churches.  That is a very hard thing to do after being there my entire life, however I am pretty sure the change is what I need at this point in my life.


  •  WRITING/BLOG – I have decreased my publishing here to match my current lifestyle. I do however have a ton of drafts that I’d like to complete and publish so I am committing to a blog period on Thursdays just to write. I also have been trying to complete my first writing project, so that will be my primary focus in addition to this blog. On my vision board, there was a section dedicated to Towels & Tumblers (wellness event), I plan to see it through for the new year!

I have learned from the past that too many items on a bucket list can cause you to loose your mojo in a year! The items listed above are my focus going forward!

If you care to hear 1 of my birthday serenades…. Here you go! I had another on the voicemail from the 3 year old God son, but couldn’t figure out how to share with you!

  1. I certainly support all the changes you want to make. I also hope for your birthday you take the time to be proud of all that you have accomplished for yourself, and for your wonderful selfless attitude towards others!

    I have visited Asheville while taking the “scenic” route from Florida to Richmond, Va. where my parents are. It was a beautiful drive!

  2. Happy belated birthday! You look great! I personally know the toll birth control can have on your body… When it’s time for me to join a church I just know. It’s like I’m being forced to go down the isle, or to the table or wherever to join. Also the message at the church is always good even when it’s not the regular pastor. I think visiting other churches will be good. It’s always good to hear how other people are experiencing the Word often we get too comfortable with the person. Good luck with your future venture I look forward to reading about them!

  3. Happy 34! Now we’re the same age for a bit, until I go off and welcome 35. Yikes.
    I think blogging once a week is very realistic and awesome, and I would be happy to see you! I still do three times a week but I think I’ll make it twice a week for the summer, unless I have a lot to say.. which certainly happens.
    No on the drag show, sadly. Maybe someday.
