January Goals

Happy New Year!
2017 was a learning year for me. I learned many of strengthens and weaknesses.
I've grown so much. I've let some people go and welcomed new ones.
2017 is now over and 2018 is here
I wanted to set realistic goals for myself I like to break them up month to month , add and remove them as the year progresses.

Blog I have a schedule set for PIB and I will stick to it this month. I love blogging I just need to stop allowing life to get in the way

Fix My Canvas  I love putting on makeup. And for the perfect application I need to take care of my skin better than I have

Treat Myself I have to remember myself so at least once a month I want to treat myself with something I want

Drink Water I want 90% of my fluid intake to be water. Its great for my body and skin

someone who isn't gonna judge you)

Harry Potter Marathon

After a long week at work it was great to unwind with with friends .
My fellow Potter Heads and I set out on a mission to complete the series . 

We had so much fun laughing and talking.
Even though I was on Snapchat I kept to myself this weekend. 
I wanted to be in the moment . 

Depression is a scary thing and its been taking over my life lately.
My days have been work and home ( in bed) 
I haven't been feeling like myself lately .
 I just needed time to stop and let God take control . 

I needed to be surrounded my positivity and happiness .
I know people may think its weird but watching Harry Potter makes me happy. 
It takes me back to the good ole days. 

I use to watch Harry Potter all the time with my mother
It was a family thing 
 And this weekend reminded me of that 

Good food , good conversations and of course Harry Potter made things feel great 

It felt good to not have to deal with the outside world 
No Drama
Just peace and fun

Now its time for some much needed rest .
I feel so prepared for the week 
Now time for a talk with God and a good night's rest. 

What are some things you do when you're stressed ?

Rock Bottom

I'm scared
Today I'm sitting at 362 pounds .
By the grace of god I don't have any major health issues .
I've lost control of myself . 
I've let depression and anxiety take over my life and now I'm at my highest weight.
 I can't let this continue.
I cant continue to eat all the wrong things . 
I can't continue not being active . 
I need to make some major changes .
 And they have to start today .
 I want to be a mother one day and that's gonna be impossible or difficult to do with all this weight . I need to lose this weight for myself . It's a shame I can't walk to end of the block without feeling like I'm dying .
 I'm tired of this .
Today is my fresh start .
I've thrown out all the junk for my house and I'm creating a new Brittany now .

I pray this time will be the time I can finally make this work and lose all this weight .
