January Isn't Over Yet!

Have you started your New Year Resolutions? How's it going? I have convinced myself that I would write a list filled with things that wouldn't stress me out or pressure me to do something that wouldn't be realistic in my life. I'm really excited about it because so much has happened in 2010 and it gave me such a HUGE positive outlook for 2011.

 I Want To Be Healthy
My usual resolution is to "lose weight", but not this time. I want to be healthy. The pressure of "losing weight" is so stressful. I don't want to focus on how often I am going to workout and plan the exact meals that I am going to eat. I'll definitely follow guidelines...what I should or shouldn't often I should workout. It's very frustrating making a schedule on exercise and food and not being able to accomplish that goal on a set date and time. It's not realistic. What if my kid is sick? What if I'm sick? What if I'm gone and I can't be home to workout or follow the menu that I planned? I'm going to be healthy MY WAY. I may read a book to help me. I may not. I may even join a club. But it's going to be without pressure. It always seems like the pressure of losing weight always makes me want to give up. It's a NO PRESSURE journey to being HEALTHY.

Blogging and Getting Involved.

Last year I said I would work on my blog and I did! I still have a long way to go. I'm not where I'd like to be, but I'm headed into the right direction. I want to be more consistent and I want to get involved with the blogging community. There are tons of amazing bloggers out there and I'm interested in getting out there and meeting all of these amazing people as well as attending more of these fabulous blogger events.

Launching My New Fashion Blog: Curvi Mami Petite (February 2010)

Last year I attended Full Figured Fashion Week in Los Angeles, Ca. and I was extremely inspired by all the woman that I met. It motivated me to start a fashion blog about woman with curves. Would I say that I'm fashionable? Not always, but I'm on a journey to fashion. I'm a mom-on-the-go and I need clothes that I can move and feel comfortable in. Having a baby changed my body and I'm on a mission to find my fashion. I hope that there are woman out there that can relate to me. Join me on my journey...

Focus on School

I slacked last year. I had so much going on that I forgot about sitting down and focusing on school. Time to FOCUS.

Work On My Career Goals

I work as a nurse in home care and I love it, but it's time to take a break and move into something different. I used to take care of a disabled boy and I became really attached to him and his family. He passed away last November and I think it hit me REALLY hard. I felt overwhelmed with the grief that I had over his death along with the death of my husbands good friend that passed away over the summer. I went to work with another family and I wasn't happy. I felt burnt out. It's time for me to do something different. I need to find my happy place...I'm thinking clinic, hospital, or corrections.

Spend More Time With Family and Friends
Last year was really fun. Time to beat 2010 and make 2011 better!
